After years of complaints regarding the Longhorns’ game day atmosphere, Texas Athletics has decided to make several changes to improve the fan experience around Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium
starting this season. Beginning Sept. 8 for Texas’ home opener against Tulsa, fans will enjoy “Fan First” concession pricing, Longhorn City Limits and Bevo Boulevard at every home game.
As Texas head coach Tom Herman reached the podium for his press conference Monday afternoon, he didn’t begin by discussing the turnovers or the quarterback play. He began by comparing the Longhorns’ performance to the American literary novel “Of Mice and Men.”
Off-the-field distractions for the Terrapins, including the death of freshman Jordan McNair and the ESPN story accusing the coaching staff of creating a “toxic culture,” have lasted all summer. It all started on May 29, during an offseason workout organized by the football team’s strength and conditioning staff.
