Charlie Strong has changed the routines and raised the bar at Texas, and the Longhorns are noticing.
Strong wants his players to be tough, to trust one another and to come together. Looking for a way to motivate his new program, ESPN is reporting that Strong has his players walking a half mile to practices and has banned them from throwing up the traditional “hook ‘em horns” hand gesture in public until they’ve earned the right to.
“They’ll get it back one of these days,”
Texas lost their toughness over the final years of the Mack Brown era, and Strong has every intention of bringing that back.
