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.
AUSTIN, Tx -- On the heels of a 10-win season, culminating in a 28-21 Sugar Bowl victory over SEC power Georgia, the vibe throughout the first week of spring practice has been notably upbeat and very energetic. And perhaps no one embodies that positive strut like junior signal-caller Sam Ehlinger.
Since the arrival of Tom Herman in Austin, there have been many changes around the Texas Football program. New, state-of-the-art facilities, renewed emphasis on Strength & Conditioning and hydration, and embodying a culture of accountability and winning. But one spot has seen significant change; quarterback. Meet Hudson Card.
