Bob's Blog: Proving Another StrongPoint

Updated: Monday, August 4 2014, 10:54 PM CDT
Why is this such a big deal?  The majority of people certainly believe that by the time 7:00 August 30th rolls around, Texas will have the Longhorn back on the helmet, come hell or high water.  That this is another in a long line of gimmicks from Charlie Strong designed to get his team to ... shall we?  Earn the right.

That phrase may strike a chord with some of you.  Earn the right -- of course -- was the slogan of the 2012 Texas football team.  The one that went 9-4 ... The one that lost 63-21 to OU ... The one that had the worst defense in school history.

Walking instead of bussing -- helmet decal stripping -- disallowing Horns up.  While it's all a part of the larger picture of a culture change Strong is trying to create, it's only created if the players buy-in to it.  Which by all accounts they are for now.
Strong is enforcing his will on his players.  He's making them believe his way is the right way.  Maybe it takes a season to fully digest, but it won't take longer than that.  And that's not to say a national championship is on the way.What it does say - is that Strong is changing the way his players act in this program. Getting rid of the entitlement.  Earning the right.Of course, if Strong really wants to prove his point -- Texas will run out of the tunnel at 7:00 August 30th without that Longhorn on their helmet.  Then - this is a big deal.Bob's Blog: Proving Another StrongPoint
