New #Texas coach Charlie Strong: If something is soft you can get it hard.. Your program has got to be built on toughness.— Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) January 6, 2014
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
THATS WHAT SHE SAID
If the "she" were in fact your mom, who has considerable knowledge in the field.
Sometimes it just takes the right mindset........
+1,000,000 to Charlie Strong. Best comment ever.
A well-deserved appointment, not to mention a historical one.
It will be very interesting to see who tags along with Mr. Strong to Austin.
Also, what about GERG?
I'd expect Vance Bedford (former UM assistant) to replace the one and only Grecian Formula master.
Dick Vermeil will be the next Lions coach, and he'll bring his good friend and former DC Greg Robinson with him.
But it would be interesting to see the Texas fanbase react to an all-black coaching staff.
Well, A&M seems ok, but they are winning games...
Ahhh, but by choosing to "present without comment", haven't you actually presented us with your comment?
LSUfreek strikes again. I don't know how to embed gifs
there are people out there who have not seen Blazing Saddles and thus didn't understand why I thought it was so funny. I feel sorry for those people.
You've got to remember these people are simple farmers, people of the land, the common clay of the west, you know, morons.
Where is your deer avatar?
I'd like to extend a laurel, and a hardy handshake to our new...
This is my favorite gif of his. Incredible.
The Sheriff is near!
Gabby Johnson is right!
"Welcome Gruden" would have been good too. I am now more sad that the badass wanted coach is a Michigan man who had better things to do than come to Michigan.
LSUFreek is off to a great 2014.
Oh well,they'll get over it...

Is it racist that my first thought when seeing this was, "Where's all the white women at?!?!"?
Pure gold. Thanks for sharing.
Well, sometimes your program drank a bit too much and needs to sleep it off beforehand. But once that program gets a solid couple hours, prepare for the bull to be unleashed!
I just don't think it's going to happen tonight, where's the advil?
I can see Prevail and Ride is going to like this new coach of theirs.
But he never be Iron Sheik class, he never sell out the pontiac silverdome
I'm sorry, I never do this, but hahahahahahahaha.
are we doing gimmick accounts now
because I support this very much
Texas fans disagree.
This hire will help offset the Sumlin Train leaving out of College Park. Besides,CS played pivotal role in ol ball coach winning those championships in the swamp too,with those SEC type defenses.
People...they can be so fickle,at times.
Otherwise his assertion would be much more difficult.
tehehe. He said get it hard.
I wonder how Mack Brown supporters will see this as a slight against him and get pissed off.
If he's referring to the team, it is a slight against Brown no question. If a Brown supporter doesn't agree the team was soft, they will be offended, deservedly so. That quote's not subtle.
If he's referring to penis I agree with you
I've been on that date.
It would seem to me that, if the quote about making something hard is indeed true, then Enzyte Bob ran a pretty "tough program" for years and years once the medication took effect. Either way, a pretty amusing way to start his career at Texas.
Isn't Charlie Strong the black Rich Rod?
Only difference is Charlie had a lot of success as both a DC at Florida and HC at Louisville, while Rich's major success was a HC gig at West Virginia.
Both have that 'genius' mind for coaching. Both benefitted from 'academically questionable' kids that their schools (WVU, Louisville) were allowed to take. Neither would be described as a 'good' politician. Both tried to get Demar Dorsey on their football team, and at one point they both had him.
I just see Charlie Strong as headed into a bad situation at Texas, just like Rich had at Michigan. You're talking about a school that has historically taken 95% of its kids from its home state being built around Florida kids. Maybe if Charlie wins early he can pull it off, unlike Rich. Also, if he has the full support of the school - that would be good for him.
I more-or-less had this thought earlier today. As a corollary, isn't Mack Brown the (other) beige Lloyd Carr?
I admire both men greatly, but they both arguably stayed on a bit long while their programs deteriorated. I understand the corollary breaks down on closer examination (Lloyd was much more institutionalized before becoming head coach, Mack was forced out while Lloyd pretty much left on his own volition, etc., etc.). In fact, it's a pretty bad corollary.
But it's a funny one IMO, so I'm hitting "Save" and letting the people decide.
Mack Brown is to Lloyd Carr as Charlie Strong is to ________ . If my Texas friends' reactions are any indicator of the reaction of the overall fan base....unless Strong can get the full support of the university (I mean $$$$) behind him...this may not end well.
