Look for scruffiness among the Texas senior players

Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas players apparently have learned something from hockey players about building team cohesiveness.

Several Texas seniors said Saturday that they don't plan to shave during training camp as the Longhorns prepare for their Sept. 5 opener against Louisiana-Monroe.

NHL players have traditionally not shaven during the playoffs. And the Longhorns appear ready to follow suit over the next few weeks.

Colt McCoy already was getting excited about the challenge among his teammates.

"We'll see who can grow the nastiest facial hair on the team," McCoy said.
