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."
