The major offensive theme this spring has been the implementation of the quick-tempo, no-huddle offense. With Texas likely to throw more than last season (493 rushing attempts and 398 passes thrown in 2012; 589 and 358 in 2011), it’s also important the running backs work on their blitz pickups. “The biggest thing to pick up on is pass protection,” said junior Malcolm Brown, one of three backs who will contend for touches. “The running backs come in and know how to run the ball.
