Baylor acting head coach Jim Grobe isn’t planning for career rushing leader Shock Linwood to play for the 25th-ranked Bears at No. 9 Oklahoma because of some attitude issues.
Grobe said Monday that “it’s not anything major” but that Linwood has some issues to work through. The coach didn’t elaborate.
Linwood shoved a graduate assistant during the Bears’ 62-22 home loss to TCU on Saturday, when he had only six carries. Asked about that altercation, Grobe said he didn’t have any issues with what happened on the sideline between a player and assistant upset during a game.
Linwood has 594 yards rushing this season, with 237 yards against Iowa State. He had another game with only two carries.
