Bob Dylan said once that the times, they are a-changin'. For Texas Longhorns football, their uniforms should not.
New Texas athletic director Chris Del Conte engages with fans of the University on Twitter regularly and was asked this past week where he stood on changing the Longhorns' uniforms. Del Conte, formerly of TCU, mixes and matches uniforms regularly. Del Conte made an insightful point that Texas carries a history that elevates them above that of our friends in the purple and white.
Good question — not that it’s a good or bad idea. Non-traditional programs embrace change while traditional programs honor history and tradition. Think Oregon vs., say, a Penn State. Texas is the most iconic of colors and brand... As They Say Don’t mess with Texas🤘🏽 https://t.co/0hiUrwnD53

Nearly every program sports some form of new uni during the season now, so the question at the heart of the Project Bevo Runway discussion is what can be gained from making uniform changes?
