Longhorn Fail: Texas gives UCLA ball to start first and second half

After the finish to the Georgia game, I thought I had seen just about everything in college football. Not so fast my friend….. UCLA won the coin flip to start the game and they chose to defer to the second half, which gave them the right to choose if they wanted to kickoff or receive to start the second half (naturally they would choose to receive). Because of UCLA deferring, Texas...

Texas Captain Coin Toss Blunder Gives UCLA Ball Both Kickoffs

Ever so often, you get a sports blunder like no other, where everyone pauses to reflect on exactly how that just happened.

Did Texas Longhorns ask intramural fraternity QB to join team?

David Whitlock The Texas Longhorns are a program in transition.  After the retirement of coaching legend Mack Brown at the end of the 2013 season, current head coach Charlie Strong has instilled much more discipline into a program that appears to have been lax.  This has led to some defections, suspensions, and thin ranks.  It didn’t help […] Sports-Kings - The Kings of Sports...

Texas motivation tactics didn't work against BYU

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texas coach Charlie Strong tried to nudge his players to a big game against BYU. Strung around the locker room were BYU posters and signs noting the Cougars' 40-21 victory in 2013 and the school-record 550 yards rushing allowed by Texas that day. Strong expected his players to get mad and rip them down. The problem is, no one did. BYU then rolled to a 41-7...

Charlie Strong Put Signs Of BYU’s 2013 Stats Around Texas’ Complex Hoping They’d Be Ripped Down, They Weren’t

In the week leading up to Texas’ game against Brigham Young, new-Longhorns’ coach Charlie Strong attempted a motivational tactic with his team. The 54-year-old walked around his program’s facility, taping signs with BYU’s 2013 stats all over the walls. He wanted someone–a leader, hopefully–to disgustingly tear them down.  No one did.  Texas, without starting quarterback...

Charlie Strong On Texas’ Performance: “It’s An Embarrassment”

The Texas Longhorns were beaten down by BYU on Saturday night, as the Cougars walked into Austin and destroyed the Longhorns, 41-7. Yes, Texas was without starting quarterback David Ash, and the team is in a near-constant state of turmoil while head coach Charlie Strong tries to change its culture, but a 34 point loss at home to an unranked team is still a bad look for any school...

Texas coach Charlie Strong fuming after 'embarrassing' loss to BYU
