Texas fans get a much-anticipated look at new coach Charlie Strong’s first Longhorns football team Saturday, but just what will they see – and should they expect – at the annual spring game?

Strong said Tuesday the game will look like a real game and not practice. Rather than divide the team into orange and white, fans should expect to see “good on good,” in Strong’s words. That likely means the first team offense against the first team defense and such. Don’t expect to see the special teams in too much action, though the kickers and punters will get work as situations dictate.
