AUSTIN (KXAN) - Texas practiced for the first time in pads Wednesday. After two days of mostly teaching, the physicality was ramped up on day three.
“In pads you can turn them loose and I thought they had a lot of fun today,” University of Texas head coach Mack Brown said.
The next three practices are open to the public, beginning Thursday at 6:30 pm.
“What we told the guys is we got enough talent and we’ve played well enough at times, we got to do it all the time,” Brown said.
“We’re talking about you got to win every practice," he added. "If you come out here and you don’t have your best practice then you’re not helping your team. And that’s why we won nine games instead of all of them. They can’t not show up for every play at practice and expect to be able to turn a switch on game day.”
