The first lull in the off-season is already almost over. Spring practice begins March 11th and ends on April 13th before the long lull in the off-season.
This will be an exciting spring, perhaps more so than any in recent years. That sounds like something I might write every year, but it isn’t every year, at least this decade, where Texas is coming of a big bowl win with a more talented roster than the previous year.
You’ll notice I wrote talented and not experienced. When you stack back-to-back top-three classes on top of a roster in need of a major re-build, you’re going to increase your talent every year. The spring is for developing that talent, and this spring in particular is in desperate need of development given the talent that did depart. We wish them well at the combine this weekend.
The roster is stacked with NFL talent, though much of that talent is in the younger classes. Fortunately many of them played last year and are ready to take on a larger role.
Next week we’ll detail questions heading into spring, this week we’ll focus on the depth chart as speculated by sources.
