    What is going on with Texas FB?

    First, 2 players charged with raping a girl are kicked off the team.

    Then 3 more are dismissed for violating school rules.

    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?

    ****** 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.
