"What we do is try to give all three guys the same number of reps because we're not sure who will play," Brown said, "and with Selvin's situation you don't know how long he'll play if he plays. So we've got to get Anthony Johnson ready to play and he's taken a lot of snaps this week."
Robin had a career day against Tulane with 87 yards on 15 carries. His 21-yard run against the Green Wave is the longest by a Texas running back all season.
"If you don't go into a game with confidence, you're going to get killed," Robin said. "We go into every game with confidence. Nothing is going to change. It's just going to be the same thing but with more reps and more often."
Added Robin, "At tailback, we're four-deep and that can only help us."
Young, meanwhile, said he is nearly at full strength.
"I'm always ready to play," Young said. "I feel a whole lot better. This was probably my best week of practice. I feel close to 100 percent and better than I have been in the past couple of weeks."
Young, however, is not without empathy for the situation surrounding Benson. The junior running back was charged yesterday with breaking into a Southeast Austin apartment on October 7 in an attempt to retrieve a plasma TV, speakers and a Sony Playstation that Benson reported stolen nearly one year ago.
"As a friend, I wish the best for him but we've still got a game to play," Young said. "He'll be back, and I'm going to welcome him. He's still part of the team but this week we've got to focus on Baylor."
Brown repeated a point made Tuesday that his decision to bench Benson was not a punitive measure but was intended to mitigate the level of distraction and to allow his starter to address the matter with attorneys.
"We're trying to beat Baylor so we can be bowl eligible at midseason." Brown said. "Very few people will be that way and we'll try to win the next one."
Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. (Central) at Floyd Casey Stadium.
