The Texas Longhorns held their annual Orange and White spring game Saturday, providing a short glimpse of the developments made since beating Oregon State in the Alamo Bowl in December.
A newly installed spread offense had been the talk of the town, and any lingering ghosts from Bryan Harsin's motion-heavy schemes appeared to have disappeared as the 'Horns move into a brand new era of Texas football.
David Ash and Johnathan Gray were among several players who stood out this past weekend, but others suffered much less impressive outings.
Fortunately, the spring game is a two-way street. It allows the fan base a look under the microscope, but it also gives the players a live opportunity to showcase their growth and savvy in live action in front of eager supporters.
As the spring game delivered an enveloping look into what exactly the Texas program has been developing over the past few months, there appeared to be more good news than bad news stemming from this weekend, perhaps more of the former than the latter.
