4. Texas shouldn’t fire Charlie Strong…yet
The Texas Longhorns lost again on Saturday. The Red River Rivalry against Oklahoma was yet another exciting shootout between the two teams. The Sooners got the better of their hated rivals, but both teams put on an impressive show offensively.
The big story out of the game is going to be what happens with Charlie Strong. Everyone is expecting the program to pull the trigger and fire him eventually. However, they shouldn’t fire him just yet.
A coach should only be let go the moment his team rolls over and quits on him. That’s not the case with the Longhorns at all. This team still competes hard and brought it against Oklahoma on offense, albeit they struggled defensively. If they could have got a bounce or two to go their way, they might have came away with the victory.
Rather than letting the cloud of firing Strong hang over their head, they need to come out and say Strong is their guy. That way the program can deal with less distractions and continue to focus. Now isn’t the time to let him go.
