Despite beginning the calendar with a win over vaunted Georgia, the early positive momentum, the success of the last two recruiting classes, and being in excellent standing with a handful of priority prospects, there is a sense of uneasiness with the lack of early 2020’s committed this cycle for UT. Well, within parts of the fan base at least. The staff... they're perfectly fine with where they sit.
The most important scrimmage of the week isn't Saturday, it occurred on Wednesday when the first and second team each went about 30 plays. Predictably, the offense won. The defense didn't play too poorly, other than shooting itself in the foot with penalties. Today's practice was much lighter, and mainly just a rehearsal for Saturday's production.
With the Spring game just over a week away, we'll take a closer look at the early confirmed visitors. With so many major programs holding this event on the same day, the prospects you see arrive in Austin next Saturday could be a valuable data point in the class of 2020 and beyond. Or it might not be, but that'll be for us to discover.
While most of the players and coaches scattered during Spring Break, the group as a whole had a great first week of practice and a little more information straggled in late. The team will return to Austin this weekend sunburned, smiling, and hopefully ready to smack each other for three consecutive weeks. The first day back is always a rude awakening.
