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.

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.

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

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

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

It is the same thing John Wooden did in basketball.
Everyone ties their shoes and puts on their socks the same way. Everyone looks the same.
You break the individualism to emphasize the team...same thing the military does.

Lou Holtz did the same thing here when he first got here.

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.

Where is that bullet point?

I am interested in the reaction. You guys act like he is asking them to do something really out there. Maybe the team has a discipline problem, and he is working to fix it. Don't see anything that bad myself. And if you don't want to abide by the rule....don't. No one is forcing you to be there.

And acting like the players don't get anything in return, with a full ride, when other kids are maxing out on student loans. With the academic rules he's setting, he's compelling them to take advantage of it - hardly a bad thing. Looks like he's also shaking out the personnel, and determining who really wants to be there, and contribute to the team. It's not like they were performing up to spec the last few years under Brown.

The only thing I might take exception with are the implications of #8.
