Bobby Petrino Is Very Appreciative Of Charlie Strong

Pete Cautilli | The Cardinal Connect Former Louisville head football coach Charlie Strong’s departure from the program could have been handled a little bit better, but in the end, I think Cardinal fans should be very appreciative of Strong. Not talking to his team prior to his decision to leave being officially announced wasn’t a wise move, in my opinion. But it appears that...

Media Jump the Gun on News of all the Texas Longhorns Dismissals?

The words 'sources say' or 'according to sources' are some of the worst in journalism. What they essentially do is give the writer free reign to make whatever claim he/she wants, but without ever actually providing any evidence. This practice becomes even more of an issue when conclusions are drawn and presented as news.You know--just like with the crazy number of...

Charlie Strong’s New RULES Trying to Change Culture at TEXAS (Photo)

The rules aren’t quite working yet (multiple dismissal from the team just this week), but it is a process and Charlie Strong seems serious about changing some of the behavior of his players. This can backfire of course, if you are too rigid and players don’t see results on the field, they will start to rebel and tune you out. Some of the rules like Headphones in class seem silly...

Texas Head Coach Charlie Strong Has Now Dismissed 3 Players, Suspended 2 Others In Last 24 Hours

Charlie Strong Has A Mess On His Hands In Texas

Erich Schlegel | Getty Images When hired to take over the Louisville football program in December of 2009, Charlie Strong had quite a mess to clean up. All of the momentum that Bobby Petrino had built from 2003-06 was crushed by Steve Kragthorpe in just three years. The program was at one of its lowest points in the past 50 years when Strong was hired. Fortunately it took Strong...

Oklahoma fans take advantage of Texas spelling error

Since Charlie Strong was hired as the new head football coach of the Longhorns, he's talked about "Putting the T back in Texas." But in the Texas media guide, the "T" isn't the problem. It's the "A" and "S." Texas is misspelled as Texsa at the bottom of every page of the 2014 edition promoting its website.  Red...

Post-Mack era off to Strong start for Texas

If so many folks desperately wanted Mack Brown to step down at Texas, I'm not sure why they're already getting sentimental about him now. Charlie Strong is nothing like Brown, and that was one of the main reasons the Horns made this hire. This silliness about Strong not being "polished" enough in his public speaking is absurd. It's probably more media-driven...

Charlie Strong Says “Hook ‘Em” Longhorn Roped Off In Locker Room So Players Will Respect It

From the second Charlie Strong took the job as the new head coach of the Texas Longhorns, he’s been preaching about culture change in Austin. A big part of that new sentiment deals with the players respecting what it means to represent UT. Back in March, Strong banned his players from using the famous “hook ‘em horns” hand gesture. Tuesday, we learned that he’s also roped...
