An Early Peek at the Defending Champion

Terrific post by the Texas site Bevo Sports, which has a two-minute highlight package from the Longhorns' orange-white scrimmage Saturday that concluded spring practice. Texas is working out of the shotgun formation, just like 2005, but there is much work to be done with Vince Young leaving for the riches of the NFL (direct link to spring video). Quarterbacks Colt McCoy and Jevan Snead are battling to replace Young and a decision on a starter won't be made until fall. In the meantime, Texas continues to stockpile talent, with standout Florida prep quarterback John Brantley becoming the 18th player to give coach Mack Brown an oral commitment for the class of 2007 (some registration).
