Texas has a lot of questions to answer this spring. Herb Hand has a lot of good pieces to work with along the OL but a lot of work to do in getting them up to par, the QB room is still young and needs to make a leap, and the defense has to replace cornerstone interior pieces from a fantastic 2017 unit.

In year one under Tom Herman Texas went into the fall needing help and solutions to come from the freshman class, including the incoming players that weren’t present for spring. For 2018 Texas is not going to want to leave much for the fall save for incorporating Rice-transfer Calvin Anderson at left tackle. The Big 12 is pretty open in 2018 with OU losing most of the key pieces from a historically great offense while returning the key pieces to a historically bad defense. The opportunity is there for Texas to make it home from second due to a misplay in the outfield. However, being the kind of program that is always adjusting and “reloading” requires being the kind of program that goes into fall with most of the team’s big questions answered and the key ingredients already stewing together in the crock pot.
