Three Takeaways: Aug. 13 - Jerry Hill, Baylor University

  1. ALL THE TABLES ARE FULL: While a handful of players are limited by injuries, there is more depth at the linebacker positions this year. "We're starting to bring along a lot of the younger guys, they're starting to step up and learn the defense," said junior linebacker Jordan Williams. "When they're ready, they'll be able to come out there. We have a lot of depth in the room now. It's so much that all the tables are filled. We have the depth, we just have to buy in."
  2. YES, SIR: Last year, in no uncertain terms, linebackers coach Mike Siravo told freshman Jalen Pitre he needed to go back to high school. But now? "I love coaching Jalen. He's one of the toughest-minded kids in the room. He just takes the coaching, no matter how it comes at him. When he says, 'yes, sir,' he really means it. He listens and responds and is just a tough, tough-minded kid," Siravo said.
  3. I'LL PASS: After being the team's primary long snapper for punts the last two seasons, redshirt junior Ross Matiscik is trying to double as a linebacker and taking a crash course in learning Phil Snow's defense. That's why he chose to practice instead of walk in Saturday's graduation ceremony after finishing his degree in supply chain management with the Hankamer School of Business. "I had been practicing linebacker for seven practices. Honestly, I just thought I needed to be here and get the extra reps. So, I decided to forego graduation and come here. I thought it was a bigger priority to be here with my teammates."
