Strong made it a point in his presser this week to say that those were ONLY the expectations, there's rules that the team must go by also.

Default Re: Coach Strong's expectations at Texas

I will say this about the whole deal at Texas...Strong better win early..Which he should...Their schedule isn't that hard and if he can get 8 or 9 wins this coming season he should be ok for a couple of years...If they go out there and win 6 or 7 games.....Charlie is going to have a very hard ride for a bit...

I love it.
Texas jsut got a slam dunk hire.
I'm sure there will be players that don't want to follow, and they will be gone.

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.

My problem with absolutes is that they're more trouble than they're worth. Like school teachers who say shit like "never smile until Christmas" or some stupid shit like that. Really? No guns -- at all? Why, specifically?

Pete Carroll seems to be pretty damn successful doing what he's doing all these years and he wouldn't do cartoon shit like this.
They will if they want to play for him.

Remember, kids can choose to play...they can transfer if they don't like it. And Im' sure Strong will open the door if they want to leave.

Why is this even a thread? Charlie clearly stated at the end:

"I don't want to talk about things. I'd rather do things. We just talked. Now it's time to do."

Get to doing, people!

Bumping this thread up to share this news. Charlie Strong has banned players from using the "Hook em Horns" hand sign. He says they will "get it back one of these days"

http://www.myfoxdfw.com/story/250889...for-ut-players

He's also made players start walking the half mile to practice instead of riding the bus, take off headphones while walking from class to class and sit in the front row.

Sounds like there needed to be an attitude adjustment amongst the ranks.

No its not. I work on a college campus, and these kids are so unsociable its ridiculous. You can live without headphones, and say hello to people for the five minutes it takes to walk to class. Its not difficult. Be in your own little world when you're by yourself.

Treat a college player with respect and individualized discipline. "My way or the highway" is bullshit to a 22 year old.
True. But my guess is, he's been there long enough now to see the issues, lack of unity, lack of discipline. Strongs a winner, knows what it takes and is making changes to tighten down on the BS he is probably seeing.

Default Re: Coach Strong's expectations at Texas

It is much easier to start out a hard a$$ as a coach and ease up gradually than to try it the other way around. I believe that's something Lou Holtz agrees with, and it's entirely possible Charlie Strong developed that philosophy while coaching with Lou at USC.

I like it.
