Questions swirling around Texas coach Strong's future

Strong did say that the rumors and reports have put pressure on the 5-6 Longhorns and that Texas was playing not to lose recently.? The Monday morning press conference saw Strong reiterate he doesn't know what will happen and talk about the strength of the football program that he's built.

If Friday marks Strong's last game at Texas, he will complete three full seasons without posting a winning record at a school that ranks among college football's top five with 891career victories.

Sad to see Strong get fired. Over the past few years, Strong says he's been able to recruit a team that has character and class.

"What's frustrating is you hear the rumors cause people are calling you".

Amid reports Sunday that he would be fired, Strong said he met with his players and told them "there's no reason to worry about me". They need to win Friday to become bowl eligible.

That jibes with a statement released by Perrin Sunday night.

I asked the source how the Longhorn players were holding up, he responded.

"Some of the team is threatening to boycott the TCU game", a source told the paper. He admitted the “wins and losses dont stack up” but he tried to make a case Monday that he should stay despite his poor record on the field. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.

Sanders wants Trump to apologize for rhetoric
And we're going to be laser-focused on communicating with folks what it is we are working on and standing up for. Sanders would have blown Trump out of the water in a populist movement that was honest .

Meanwhile, there's still a game to play. One of his first coaching jobs was as a graduate assistant at Texas, and has spent several years coaching in the state. That's something he wants for his team and his seniors. "This game is about the seniors", Strong said on Monday.

While this season has been frustrating, Strong has always told his players: "Don't quit on me and I won't quit on you".

"I know how important wins and losses are", Strong said.

The Austin-American Statesman is reporting that Texas has chose to fire Strong, though the official announcement may not come until Monday.

But then a amusing thing happened: LSU fans decided they wanted to keep their popular coach. That's not going to happen.

Strong said he has to believe their word and that no decision on his future has yet been made. Texas hasn't won 10 or more games in a single season since the end of that streak.

McConaughey's message echoes what a lot of people have been saying and that Texas needs to do what's best for the young men on the team. “He taught me what it really means to be a man.

But the stunning collapse at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, Kansas, seems to have pushed Strong to the point of no return at Texas. I look at the job that this staff has done and how far they've come. "I'm just not sure that's something they can admit publicly".
