    Charlie Strong is just cleaning house of all the riff raff.
    He'll have that program winning 10+ games/year sooner than later, IMO.

    Every team in the Big 12 should be more than a little nervous here...Charlie Strong is going to build a winner in Austin.

    Because he kicked players off the team? Why should ISU be nervous?

    Build a winner? Build? At the University of Texas? lol

    ****** does everybody on this site have to act like an ***? In case you have not noticed UT has not been a very good program, all things considered, for a while now. CS is providing a disipline that UT has not had in years. It's like people on CF just want to be dicks and pick apart every post for no reason.

    Was going to give my 2 cents, but I think it's pretty well covered.

    I still think Texas is the best job in the country. Better than Alabama, Ohio State, USC, ect. Strong should do well; Mack Brown was a tremendous underachiever

    I believe Charlie Strong was named their head coach. Quite the disciplinarian.

    Yep. No coach with anything remotely close to the resources and recruiting footprint he had accomplished less the last few years. A competent coach should be able to win ten games there just by showing up on Saturday. I don't know about Charlie Strong building a winner - that's more like what Art Briles has done and what CPR is working towards - but Texas is a sleeping giant and if Strong can get it woken up, then watch out.

    Strong is just cleaning house of the players that will bring the program down.

    New management is in and he wants his guys, not Mack Brown players that don't give a ****.

    Texas will be in the College Football playoff either next year, or the year after. Guy is a good coach and now he gets all the resources to show the country how good he is.

    Wonder if Florida is kicking themselves for hiring Muschamp and not Strong?

    Let's not put the cart before the horse. CS hasn't accomplished anything yet at UT.

    I respect what Charlie is doing. That program needed the discipline.

    I didn't ask. And I could have used a better phrase - maybe trying to build a winner instead of working towards - but my point is the same. Rhoads and Briles are at places where a program has to be built from the ground up. Texas is just a program that needs a kick in the ***.
