Texas Football: Burning Questions Ahead of the Longhorns' Spring Practice

Spring practice is about to begin for the Texas Longhorns, who can hopefully answer some of the burning questions about the status of the team.

For Charlie Strong, this spring is all about discovering an offensive identity and finding out what he has in last year's backups. He has a lot of talented freshmen set to join the program, but fielding a team full of first-year players is hardly the way to improve on a 6-7 campaign.

The Horns need a quarterback, a concrete offensive line and some veterans they can trust. And they need all of them to emerge to some degree before summer workouts.

Virginia Tech Football: Burning Questions Ahead of Spring Practice

Spring practice begins in full for the Virginia Tech Hokies next week. It's the unofficial beginning of the new season, and many questions the fans have regarding the offseason are answered in spring practice.

For head coach Frank Beamer, it will be his 29th season in charge of his alma mater. Many things have changed in recent years, though. Beamer, who is often resistant to change, has shaken up his coaching staff considerably over the past few years.

On the field, results have been mixed. After eight straight seasons with 10 wins or more, Tech has won seven, eight and seven games over the last three seasons, respectively. 

With spring practice set to begin next week, here are four burning questions Virginia Tech faces this spring.

Graham Glasgow Suspended by Michigan: Latest Details and Comments

The Michigan football program was in the midst of a resurgence this offseason after Jim Harbaugh took the coaching job, but it received some unfortunate news Monday regarding offensive lineman Graham Glasgow, who has been suspended by Michigan for violating his probation.   

Angelique S. Chengelis of The Detroit News passed along a statement from Michigan on the developing situation:

Nick Baumgardner of MLive.com reported the following details on Glasgow's probation violation:

Senior offensive lineman Graham Glasgow admitted to a violation of his probation Monday after registering a .086 Breathalyzer test Sunday morning, per 15th District Court records.

Glasgow was given one year of probation on July 14, 2014 after entering a guilty plea to operating while visibly impaired. He was originally arrested on March 15, 2014.

Glasgow admitted guilt in court Monday, and his probation was increased by six months.

Interestingly, Baumgardner noted that Harbaugh recently promoted Glasgow to the top center spot for spring practice. Whether this development changes that moving forward remains to be seen.

This is not the first time Glasgow has gotten into trouble. Baumgardner delved into more specifics, including how Glasgow was suspended for part of spring practice in 2014 and the first game of the season.

The Michigan football program has plenty of momentum on its side with the Harbaugh move and certainly has notions of making it back to a bowl game this season.   

This will definitely be unwelcome news in Ann Arbor in what has otherwise been a solid offseason.
