It seems like only yesterday, Longhorn nation was cheering on the team in Pasadena, CA as they chased the 2010 BCS National Championship. Although the game didn’t turn out for the burnt orange and white, fans saw a glimpse of what the future holds in freshman quarterback Garrett Gilbert.
Now, after signing a highly-ranked 2010 freshman class, the ‘Horns begin preparing for the 2010-2011 season later this month in spring drills. According to TexasSports.com, there will be three “open” practices that the public will be able to see the team in action:
Tuesday, March 2 – Practice with pads, Denius Fields (4 p.m. CT*)
Monday, March 8 – Practice with pads, Denius Fields (4 p.m. CT*)
Sunday, April 4 – Orange & White Scrimmage @ Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium (time TBD*)
*All times subject to change.
It’s time to put one great season to rest, and begin thinking about the championships the ‘Horns have in their future. Hook ’em!
