New expectations for Horn program under Strong.


Strong expectations:

Players will attend all of their classes and sit in the front two rows of all of their classes. GAs, academic folks, position coaches will be checking constantly now.
No headphones in class. No texting in class. Sit up and take notes.
If a player misses a class, he runs until it hurts. If he misses two classes, his entire position unit runs. If he misses three, the position coach runs. The position coaches don't want to run.
No earrings in the football building. No drugs. No stealing. No guns. Treat women with respect.
Players may not live off campus anymore, unless they're a senior who hits certain academic standards. The University will buy out the leases for every player currently living off campus and put them in the athletic dorm.
The team will all live together, eat together, suffer together, and hang out together. They will become a true team and learn to impose accountability on each other. The cliques are over.
There's no time for a rebuild. "I don't have time for that." The expectation is that Texas wins now.
Players will learn that they would rather practice than milk a minor injury.
The focus is on winning and graduating. Anything extraneous to that is a distraction and will be stamped out or removed.
Strong met individually with seniors and key leaders and re-emphasized that the plan is to win now. They can lead the new culture or be run over by it.
"I don't want to talk about things. I'd rather do things. We just talked. Now it's time to do."

That one alone is likely to pay big dividends - especially in Austin.

I love it. The complacency and lack of accountability (coaches and players) that has been bred by Mack Brown for the last four years will be eradicated by Charlie Strong. He is exactly what Texas needed.

Wow... my respect for Charlie Strong has increased tremendously. I'd like to see CMR adopt such policies. The only change I would make is that married players should be allowed to live with their wives and not teammates.

Charlie was raised up in the north central Arkansas town of Batesville. Everyone knows everyone in Batesville. You had to act right growing up there or the neighbor would call your parents and inform them of your misdoings, and you'd be in hot water when you got home. Not because the neighbors wanted you in hot water, but because they wanted you to be a success.

Batesville is also the home town of NASCAR's Mark Martin.

I wonder what happens to any married players who live off campus?

I'll be honest, if every coach in college football had and enforced these same rules, it would weed out most of the scum pretty quick.
