Reports: Texas Longhorns Hold Meeting Over “The Eyes Of Texas”


The Texas Longhorns are holding a meeting over players standing during “The Eyes of Texas.” Multiple reports say the University of Texas Athletic Director Chris Del Conte and Head Coach Tom Herman told football players last night they need to stand during the school song.

A group of Black players said earlier this year “The Eyes of Texas” needed to be changed as the school’s fight song because it was originally performed during minstrel shows by students wearing blackface.
