A road game awaits Texas offensive play caller Jay Norvell this week. But despite this rather foreboding prospect, Norvell appeared relatively confident Tuesday night – and a tad less testy – than he did at the same media gathering the week prior.
AUSTIN — Embattled Texas offensive play caller Jay Norvell touched on a variety of topics Tuesday at his weekly media availability session that was probably not a fun exercise in wake of Saturday’s shut out against Iowa State.
AUSTIN — Jay Norvell is clearly not overly concerned with winning football games in a way that’s aesthetically pleasing. He is, however, interested in winning football games.
AUSTIN — Texas offensive play-caller Jay Norvell has known Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder for “half my life.” More from Norvell, Heard, and Hall’s IT Daily Dose.

AUSTIN — Sifting through the carnage of Saturday’s 50-7 meltdown at TCU, Texas offensive play-caller Jay Norvell was surprisingly positive at his Tuesday media availability. Of course, he doesn’t really have a choice.

It all sounds good, especially if you are a coach, player or fan of University of Texas football. The freshmen work hard. The freshman are fearless. The freshmen are fast learners. The freshmen are prepared. The freshmen are good.
Change is what we want. And we want it now, of course. Change your outlook. Change your fortunes. Change your culture. Make change. And then, change your mind. Change was certainly in the air – say, a few floors high in the air at Belmont Hall – during the 2013 football season.
