    Re: What is going on with Texas FB?

    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.

    Re: What is going on with Texas FB?

    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 ***.

    Agreed, and I really like Charlie but Texas gon Texas. Who was the last coach to match results with the built in advantages at UT consistently? Did DKR?

    If you look at what USC has done in California the last 20 years and what UF & FSU in Florida have done it just blows out of the water what UT has done in Texas...and it shouldn't.

    Is there already a thread about the Texas media guide spelling issues?

    You think Texas actually cares about basketball? That's cute.

    He'll have that program winning 10+ games/year sooner than later, IMO.
    It pains me, but you are right. Texas is going to be kicking butt soon.

    what happened to Texas? They are the same Texas, they made the mistake of trying to hire the next trendy coach (bc of the Johnny Football/Sumline situation at A&M. Texas football will be irrelevant until the guy who replaces Strong takes over. A&M is also on borrowed time.

    Yeah might have to go ahead and not agree with you, just my opinion nothing against yours.
