Monday UT News & Notes
Updated: Monday, August 26 2013, 11:03 PM CDT
Texas Takeaways from Monday's media session prior to UT's home opener against New Mexico State.
- The Horns want freshman QB Tyrone Swoopes to play this year, but a lingering hamstring injury is giving them pause. They will monitor him throughout the week.
- Freshman WR Jacorey Warrick is the only one of the four incoming freshmen wideouts that Mack Brown guaranteed would play Saturday.
- Texas mammoth OL Desmond Harrison should play Saturday. How much is to be determined.
- The 2013 team motto is "For the man on my right and the man on my left". Deep snapper Nate Boyer, a Green Beret in the Army, came up with the idea.
- The 3 M's explained their biggest concerns heading into the first week.
o Mack: Health of the wide receivers
o Major: Guys putting too much pressure on themselves
o Manny: Don't know what to expect from NMSU offense (new coach, new staff)
- Major Applewhite will coach the offense from the sidelines. Darrell Wyatt will stay in the booth upstairs.
- In the Horns final scrimmage of the spring, the offense ran 27 plays in the first quarter. Quick math – that's a pace of 108 for the game. The offensive line will rotate 8-9 guys. Mack compared the O-Line to the Secondary – rotation is key.
- The Beyonce picture wearing a # 14 jersey got a lot of love. Said Ash: "I was confused. That's cool, but I doubt she knows who I am." Says CB Adrian Phillips told him to say he liked One Plus One the best, but Ash claims he's a fan of Halo.
- Speaking of Phillips, he likes the maturity of the defense. Said they have to find a way to "not have a panic attack" when they see a formation they haven't seen.
- LB Jordan Hicks says over the last 8 months the Horns have preached doing, not saying.
