07:41 AM ET 01.16 | Charlie Strong has officially announced his new staff, along with a few themes he's looking to instill at Texas. "You can talk about all those teams that throw the ball around," Strong said, "but at the end of the day, if you can't line up and run downhill and punch somebody in the mouth, then you are going to have issues." Strong and [Joe Wickline] must sell that concept to recruits in Texas, where head coaches like Kevin Sumlin, Art Briles and Kliff Kingsbury have proven offensive track records. The coaching staff wasn't the only statement Strong made. He said he had met with every Texas player since being hired. Strong said he told each one "how unhappy I was with where the program is right now. That falls upon all of us to go get it right. And they sense it that right now we need to raise the standards."

Strong should get the program turned around, but the first yr. will be a tough yr. after that this program will start to click.

Me thinks a team needs to be able to both run it AND throw it nowadays. Texas has been able to run it a little lately but hasn't been able to throw and catch it in a long, long time. JMO.

That's what I was thinking. He looks awesome in O&B gear, though. But we were too stoopid to keep it that way.

He is a balanced-attack guy and starts with the basics. The airballs will be along soon enough. Who are the OC and DC again? I can't keep up with all the hirings/firings going on.
