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...

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...

Texas misspelled on every page of Longhorns' media guide

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.

Texas Misspelled “Texas” On The Footer Of Every Player Bio In Its Media Guide

New Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong wants to put the “T” back in “Texas”. Perhaps he needs to remind his PR staff how to spell the rest of the word as well. As we were alerted to by a Reddit user named neonbrownbear, Texas accidentally misspelled the URL for its website,, on the footer of every player biography in its 2014 media guide. A huge deal? Nope...

Longhorn sends brutally honest shot to Texas teammates

Part one of Charlie Strong’s “put the T back in Texas” campaign was simple enough: restore a hardness to the program that had eroded over the last few seasons. Strong began by implementing simple, discipline-driven rules – sit in the front two rows of class, no earrings in the football facility, etc – designed to establish toughness and order in the way he prefers things...

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...
