Last Tuesday, Texas Head Coach Charlie Strong sent shockwaves throughout the country when he flat-out told fans, “we will not be in the national championship game." After letting these comments sink in for a week, Longhorn fans should be certain: Texas has its man. 

This may seem odd at first glance,

I couldn't agree more - I loved hearing him say that. The beauty of it, too, is that if Ash is healthy the team could be really, really good and the players will be extra motivated to prove him wrong. Under-promise, over-deliver.

Interesting, and a bold move. Seems like this might be an opportunity to offer incentive for good performance - either in the classroom or in some other way that ties Strong's new imperatives together. While I'm not for coddling, this might piss off a lot of the exemplary guys who've been doing everything right over the last couple of years.
