While the Charlie Strong era at Texas has technically been under way for a few months, we’re now starting to see some of the changes he’s talked about making come to life. One example? On the first day of the team’s offseason strength and conditioning program, players were given “Put the T back in Texas” shirts, which include four words on the back – toughness, trust, togetherness, and teamwork. Here’s video of the Longhorns practicing in their new gear, via ESPN.
As you can see in the video, Strong also participated in the tug-of-war drills, which comes as no surprise. After all, the most searched for term on Google regarding coach Strong is the word “jacked”.
Only time will tell if Strong is able to resurrect a program that has the talent and name brand to compete for a national championship every season. It looks like he’s off to a good start.
