Texas Longhorns athletic director Chris Del Conte has a message for Texas athletes as they ready for their final season in the Big 12.
“We’ve still got 2023 to go – it’s like everyone forgot we have a year this year,” Del Conte said this week, according to Inside Texas. “I’m like, ‘that is next year. We need to focus right here across the board’ because every one of our coaches are just itching to get in the Southeastern Conference yet they all know the task at hand.
“We gotta go out with a bang. As I told Steve [Sarkisian] – last year of the Southwest Conference, we won; first year in the Big 12, we won. We want to go do it again. Come on, it’s been too long.”
