  2. On page 97 of the September issued Texas Monthly - "JC: But is it fair to expect UT to compete for a national championship every season? CS: You want to compete. And you'd like to go compete year in and year out. JC: I'll ask you a much narrower question then: Are you going to beat North Texas in your season opener on August 30th? CS: Oh . . . [laughs] Let's make sure I get my guys to camp on August 4 and get 'em going."

  4. Charlie Strong opens his eyes. It’s 4 a.m. He rises, dresses and, without caffeine, drives 20 minutes to the Texas football facility. On Mondays he runs south to downtown via Red River Street and returns on Guadalupe Street. On Tuesdays he heads through neighborhoods to the north. The routes vary each day, but the goal remains the same -- shave a few seconds off his time from the week before. He does not always succeed, but Strong still bangs out five miles at a nine-minute clip, straining to outrace some previous version of himself. He has done this for his entire career, through 14 coaching jobs at eight universities -- three decades spent pushing himself forward while running in loops. And yet even when he has reached his destination, Strong cannot help but do what he has always done, so he runs just as hard. Last winter, after going 23-3 during his final two seasons at Louisville, Strong landed what many consider the best coaching gig in the country, signing a five-year, $26 million deal at Texas. If everything is big in Texas, the task of reviving the football team is no exception. The Longhorns went 18-17 in the Big 12 under Mack Brown over the last four seasons; this year they didn’t have a player drafted by the NFL for the first time since 1937. And Strong’s hiring as the program’s first black coach carries with it a social significance that matches the breadth of his improbable journey. “Could you ever believe,” Strong confided to a friend recently, “that I ended up at Texas?” Sitting at a conference room table the size of a par-3 that’s adjacent to his office, the 53-year-old Strong has little interest in taking inventory of the hardships he’s endured or in dwelling on the issues of race that have dogged his past and bring significance to his present. Of his humble beginnings he says simply, “We came from nothing, but we still had enough. Everybody supported one another.” About the whispers that bias popped up every time he got passed over for a head coaching job: “I didn’t get hired because they didn’t feel like I was [the best] candidate for their position, but I think everybody wanted to make it about race.” Read more: http://www.si.com/college-football/2014/07/22/charlie-strong-texas-longhorns
  5. Eric Capper @Eric_Capper Happy to host the indubitably talented play-by-play voice of the Texas Longhorns and proud #MeanGreen alum Craig Way in press box this week. about 1 hour ago
  6. Less than a month after it was announced that he and another former four-star recruit were leaving Texas, Darius Terrell has found himself a new collegiate football home and, conveniently enough, it doesn't require moving out of state. The tight end, who will play wide receiver with his new team, confirmed to the Denton Chronicle that the new team will indeed be North Texas. Terrell (pictured, No. 15) told the Chronicle that Houston, Arizona State and UTEP were among the schools interested in his services. Read more: http://collegefootba...ferring-to-unt/
