COACH EDDIE PRICE SAYS:
Our boys made great progress late last year but even greater strides will be needed this fall, when we face L.S.U., Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Rice within the first six weeks.
HERMAN HICKMAN SAYS:
The Longhorns have been selected unanimously as the No. 1 team in the Southwest Conference. They lost only four regulars off their co-champion 1953 team. The linemen are big and fast, the backs are of the 180-pound variety with ability and speed. Lansford, a 220-pound "eat 'em up" tackle, and Fullback Billy Quinn are definite All-America possibilities. Their national rating will be established early in games with Notre Dame and Oklahoma.
