Countdown To Football Season: 28 Days

New, comments

Our daily countdown to the return of Texas football continues with yet another reason to love the fall in Austin.

In 28 days, Texas' new secondary will gets its first shot at improving the miserable numbers from a year ago. Somewhat surprisingly, the chatter in the stands has Brandon Foster 15 pounds lighter and playing better football than he ever has.

Better known as Tweedle Dee around these parts, Foster actually played well in the Alamo Bowl and is the most experienced cornerback vying for playing time this fall. Whether he can perform well enough to hold off the young talent coming up behind him remains to be seen, but whoever is manning the corners for Texas this fall will be scrutinized closely all season long. Too many Texas fans are terrified of another disaster in the secondary.
