The annual Spring football game is an exercise in letting fans the see team without “showing” them anything. In other words, Tom Herman and all of the college coaches know better than to line up in basic formations and run basic plays. That’s because every other coach in the country can watch the tape and try to get a little head start on the scouting process.Instead Herman wants to see his team’s attention to detail on offense and defense.
Other than injuries, the biggest thing coaches want to avoid are penalties. A lot of times, those are mental mistakes that coaches preach against every practice. The UT spring game will feature two teams each with an offense and a defense.
Sometimes its the offense against the defense and that’s when you get some complicated scoring. You will see some players switch teams just because of a lack of numbers at some positions. With four scholarship quarterbacks, expect to see a lot of early enrollee freshman Cam Rising and Casey Thompson, especially in the 2nd half.
