For all intents and purposes, the spring game is a chance for everyone to get up to speed.
For coaches and players, it’s an opportunity to dust off the clipboards and pads and get the feeling of a full-speed game with a stadium full of eager fans watching.
Same for the stadium crew, which hasn’t had to put on a game since November. Back then, Texas had a different coach.
Remember that guy? Charlie Strong?
Uhhh… It looks like the memorabilia shop at Royal-Memorial Stadium does. Here’s a T-shirt from the “2014 Texas Comin’ On Strong Tour” that was still on the rack Saturday.
Hey guys on The 40 – might want to clear out the former coach's merch for sale in DKR. pic.twitter.com/GXAty2I3cQ
