Charlie Strong Stayed With Nick Rose In The Locker Room Until 1 AM Following Loss

Texas kicker Nick Rose had a tough Saturday night. After the Longhorns mounted a furious comeback against Cal, scoring what appeared to be the game-tying touchdown late in the fourth quarter, Rose missed an extra point try, effectively handing the game to the Golden Bears. But it doesn't look like the coaching staff is too upset with him.

At his press conference Monday afternoon, head coach Charlie Strong revealed that he hung around the locker room until 1:00 AM to comfort Rose, and then called him early Sunday morning to make sure he was doing okay.

At the end of the day, Rose is just a college student, so it's nice to see Strong recognizing that fact. Plus, you never know when Rose is going to need to make a kick in a pressure situation moving forward, so it's important to do what's needed to help him keep his confidence. Well done.
