The weekend before last was my first experience at the Orange and White scrimmage. I was impressed with the turnout, especially given the team’s performance last season; the Texas fans didn’t disappoint.
Admission was free and seating is first come first serve. It was a much more family friendly atmosphere than the typical UT game, with babies and children everywhere. While this change in environment was nice, it did mean that folks were going up and down the aisles and through the rows the entire game (this is a pet peeve). Nevertheless, it was a gorgeous spring day in Austin and when it comes around next year you should make a point to attend! It is likely your only chance to sit at the 50 yard line two rows back.
One word of advice to the pale folks – bring your sunscreen.
