Texas Good now means Texas average. Will 2013 be more of the same or will UT turn the corner?

Coach Brown addressed the media on Monday afternoon. Part I of II. As always, many thanks to the people at Texassports.com who make these transcripts available.

From Brown’s opening statement.

We had a long discussion after spring practice about what the month leading up to the June workouts would mean. [Assistant head coach/offensive line coach] Stacy Searels and [defensive tackles coach] Bo Davis both wanted more strength and bulk up front, so we had [assistant AD for strength and conditioning] Jeff [Madden] work with them on their strength and bulk through the latter part of April and through the first part of May before they had their discretionary period, and felt like we got a lot of strength. We feel like the guys are going to look good going into summer. Some will still be lifting obviously, but a lot of [training] will be running to include the up-tempo pace that we will have when we start the fall. We thought that’s very important.

I enjoyed putting together last year’s compilation, so I figured I’d update it for the spring/summer 2013 AAU circuit. The data is very hunt and peck, so if you have any updates, feel free to ping me. I’ll try to keep it updated through the summer.

Player listings include position, year, high school, current star rating, and committed school (if applicable).

The Texas Longhorns placed three players in the NFL draft, all from the 2009 recruiting class. Marquise Goodwin broke the streak of no Longhorn offensive players drafted since 2010. We’re still waiting for a Longhorn OL draft pick since 2008.

In 2009, while the Horns were playing for the national title against Alabama on the strength of Colt McCoy and an elite Longhorn defense, Longhorn coaches were in the midst of identifying, recruiting, and developing incoming talent below the likes of:

The hits keep coming for Texas athletics baseball. Well, figuratively. Actual hits are a rarity.

The Horns lost 6-2, 1-0, 5-2 to Baylor over the weekend, scoring a total of four runs over three games, and wasting good pitching before Baylor’s strong Game 3 at the plate.

The Longhorns have now lost three Big 12 games 1-0 this season.

The Horns, currently 22-20, and 5-13 in conference play, are dead last in the league, a full game behind Texas Tech. Texas Tech holds the crucial tie-breaker though. It’s really coming down to the wire!
