Texas HC Charlie Strong said, "Whatever I need to do to get [the defense] fixed, it's gonna happen."
"I expect each and every week when we go out to compete that coaches are held accountable," Strong said, "just like I'm held accountable for how this team goes out and performs. We need to coach better, coach harder and be a lot smarter." Outside of an easy 41-7 win over UTEP in Week 2, the Longhorns have been consistently shredded. Notre Dame posted 47 points on them in the season-opener, albeit in double-overtime. No overtimes needed for Saturday, when Cal dropped 50 on Texas. Strong's squad allowed 504 total yards in that one, with Golden Bears QB Davis Webb connecting on a silly eight passes for 20 or more yards. One potential fix (or attempted fix, anyway) might be for Strong to take over defensive play-calling from DC Vance Bedford. He wouldn't commit to that, merely saying that the team has two weeks to sort out their issues. They next take the field against Oklahoma State on October 1. Sep 19 - 3:47 PM
