Board Meeting: April 2, 2012 

April, 2, 2012
Welcome to your daily Board Meeting. Each evening we’ll update you on the day’s hottest topics on the HornsNation forum.

1. Thoughts on spring game performances: Vedder1980 started it, but the topic had to be on just about every Texas fans’ mind. Who stood out, who didn’t? The Longhorns certainly showed some things that will be very exciting come football season (see D.J. Monroe with the ball in his hands), but you really had to look closely to find them. David Ash, the presumptive starter threw six passes. Malcolm Brown, a 2011 starter, had one carry. The first team offensive line is stout and run blocks well, and Joe Bergeron is out to punish people with the ball in his hands. But where was Mike Davis? What happens when a lineman needs a sub? Hard to tell.

On defense, Manny Diaz talked about the front line being the tip of the spear, but the back line can get you beat the easiest. Brandon Moore was pushing people around Cedrick Reed might be working into the rotation at defensive end. But things are thin at linebacker and defensive back. Texas will need to find second teamers and freshmen ready to step up in the fall.
