Saturday is the first official football game of the new season for the University of Texas Longhorns. With a lot of national attention on the team, the question remains about how far they can take it in 2005-2006. Today, the Horns and their coach, Mack Brown, held a press conference to address questions about the news-making crew. They get ready for a game against Lafayette-Louisiana.
Among the comments from Coach Brown:
“You can work on everything in scrimmages, but until you are getting tackled by someone you have never met who is in a different colored uniform, it is hard to know how everyone will react. At our school, [the players] are scrutinized and they put up with a lot of things before they have proven themselves. That will be one of the question marks going into the first game: how well will they play under the microscope?”
