Coach Strong's expectations at Texas

Sounds like a winner. Good find.

Sounds like mind control. He needs to back off them, they're young adults. We all partied when we were in college. What's the big deal. He's going too far too fast. What's wrong with wearing earrings. That isn't against anything.

It's discipline and it's self-responsibility, something our current culture desperately lacks.

I hope he and Texas win every game except vs the SEC

Strong is doing what college coaches should be doing not babying them but molding them in men.

In what way is prohibiting earrings doing a good job of molding people through self-discipline?

I'm dead serious

That won't last long. Although I like it, I hope it works out.

A lot of employers don't allow men to wear ear rings might as well get them used to being in the real world.

I see a lot of Texas recruits maybe looking else where. Heck, Emanuel Porter, a former Texas commitment has decommited and now is heading to TCU. Strong might want to loosen up a bit or he'll be losing a lot future recruits to their rivals.

Its about reducing self expression for the molding of a unit. Same reason the military cuts everyone's hair.

It's no different then when he was at Louisville.

So he will break up player's marriages? What do the married players have to do, divorce?

If it's a distraction she's got to go.

So you're saying he's the "Anti-Dabo"?

Though a little strict they will teach them things that will carry on through life.

Atleast they have someone trying to get the best out of them.

About as unrealistic as anything I have ever heard. Is this juco or HS ball?

Is he going to make them attend Friday pep rallies? Wear uniforms Friday to class? Spirit ribbons?

Treat a college player with respect and individualized discipline. "My way or the highway" is bullshit to a 22 year old.
