The freshmen class is all in tact and has been going through voluntary strength workouts as well as academic sessions.
Most of them take three hours during the first summer session.
Varsity guys think the freshmen class is really good.
Freshmen will have dinner at Mack's house tonight.
Fozzy will address the team.
Colt his first year said "I can't get guys to show up to the voluntary workouts."
Vince said the same thing.
Mack said "Sorry, it's voluntary and I can't help you guys.
Case and David said they haven't been having those problems this year.
Mack said that the program might start looking into doing satellite camps in places like Dallas and houston (camps for young kids)
Recruiting is going well. Trying to close out small 2013 class.
They're ahead more than ever before for the 2014 recruiting class because these coaches are working so hard.
Diggs, Phillips, Shipley, Ognyebule, Jackson Jeffcoat have not been released for full workouts yet.
The three guys who got in trouble a month ago will not miss a game. They are finishing their disciplinary action.
They are paying the price for being disrespectful to authority figures.
Eveything has been dismissed in the case.
Everybody needs to learn respect. These are three leaders and they have to lead this football team. Part of their punishment is they won't be doing interviews until the season starts.
Have to improve the passing game.
These guys can do that on their own. it's just a matter of how much work you want to put into it.
The team really has to grow up and mature in the summer.
Mack said in 2011 there were so many injuries on offense that they never really had a chance to try to do anything except for win the games.
Bluitt is at tight end.
The longhorns are working on a new position called T&Z for D.J. Monroe and Daje Johnson.
It's part tailback and part Z receiver.
The heck happened to Ship? I missed something.
Depth on the defensive line is one thing they continue to work on because of the pass-happy Big 12.
Slogan is RISE
Mack said the players want swagger but he said that you don't get to have swagger coming off of an 8-5 season
They have a lot of consultants come in and talk about leadership.
They have hired a dietician. (as we talked about on this board)
They have to change the eating habits of the players.
Best case scenario.
Mack on the playoffs:
How exciting for college football that people are talking about it at this time of the year
Don't quote me on all of those guys. He went through the guys so fast. It might have been Jackson Jeffcoat and I accidentally wrote Shipley.
I was playing catch-up.
I'll put everything together when the press conference is done.
I feel like the Big 12-SEC game will be very special.
