What I’ll be looking for in the press conference is if there’s any mention of offensive coaching dynamics changing and any prominent changes in player personnel. If he doesn’t add color to those two questions I will offer what we’ve been hearing. Things are pretty interesting behind the scenes. Plus, tons of recruiting in the Scoop.

In years past we’ve discussed the type of seasons Texas would need to have in order to keep recruiting going. Not all 8-4’s or 7-5’s are created equally. Losing close, winnable games, while leading in the 4th, is heartbreaking, but it also gives you hope that in the future those turn into close wins. That’s much different than going 7-5 or 8-4 with blowout losses.

For recruits, the feeling is extremely positive. To a man, they feel once they get to campus they can help the team get over the hump.

It’s time for Fletchers corny dogs, overpriced stuffed animals, and a fist fight between the burnt orange and boomer Sooners.  Texas is hosting an impressive allotment of prospects, especially 2019, where UT is looking to make a dent in as soon as they finish up this Top 5 composite 2018 class.
