It's almost that time. We're less than 24 hours from spring football and Texas is still riding high after the Texas Bowl win over Missouri in Houston. We cover what to expect, plus a ton of recruiting as the weather heats up. Notes/quotes from some of UT's top targets in today's Scoop.

Also, some potentially huge hoops recruiting news. It's a two-Scoop kind of week.
