Brown: 'Great first day'

"We had a great first day," <B>Mack Brown</B> said after watching the Horns' first full-squad workout of two-a-days. &quot;I think it's the best first day we've had since we've been at The University of Texas.&quot;

"The effort was good, nobody got hurt, we had a physical practice, the guys were intense, we had a lot of carryover from spring and we got to look at a lot of guys," the head coach added. "Now our coaches will take about two hours this afternoon to study all this film to see where the depth chart starts to develop because the depth chart was very unimportant this morning."

Brown said the real depth chart battles will take place among five or six guys on each side of the ball (see Saturday morning practice notes and analysis for more). "We've got to figure out who is ready to step in and play so we'll move people up and down the depth chart during two-a-days every day," he said Saturday morning. The coach said 10-15 guys on each side of the ball are in "good shape for the depth chart."

The Texas staff also wants to ensure that its big guys remain in good shape physically. "We're not going to be a heavy football team," Brown said. "We're challenging them to watch body fat. We've got somebody eating with the big guys every day at every meal and we're making sure they take care of themselves."
