Every staff fortunate enough to have time with their players during spring for practices goes in with a set of goals. For Tom Herman, in his first spring leading the Texas program, that set of priorities include two simple demands and one monumental goal.
At his spring press conference earlier today, Herman explained that the two things that he and his staff will demand their first time being on the field with their guys are quite simple, and they revolve around effort and ball security.
The one big goal carries over from Herman's time turning the Houston program from a solid 8-win season, to a Group of Five New Years Six Bowl game contender. In order to turn around a program that has suffered three-straight seasons of 7-losses, Herman wants Longhorn players to fully understand what champions practice like.
After seeing what Herman did with the Houston program, the eyes of college football fans everywhere are anxious to see not only what he's able to do at Texas, but also how he and his staff go about achieving that.
Those nuggets from his press conference today may be small, but it provides some really good perspective on his blueprint for the Texas program.
