Uniform changes on the practice field

August, 6, 2012
AUSTIN, Texas -- Apparently a large number of players have been asking Mack Brown about the possibility of wearing alternative uniforms. His answer: Not going to happen.

“There has been a lot of change around the country,” he said. “I think I heard one team had 18 different combinations. That’s kind of confusing when you have 12 games.

“Our players are constantly asking. What we tell them is that we are not. We may move a number around. But we are who we are. That uniform has been like it is for many, many years; as long as I have been here. It will be burnt orange and white.”

Brown has allowed the players to design different practice uniforms, which they will rotate on a daily basis.

“They are really excited about it and could help with recruiting,” the Texas coach said.
