Charlie Strong: No National Title in '15

Updated: Tuesday, April 22 2014, 11:10 PM CDT
Charlie Strong and Texas wanted to create a statewide buzz with its Texas Comin' on Strong tour.  The new UT head coach is hitting 12 cities in 30 days, and his first stop outside of Austin was Fort Worth Monday night. It took nine words for the attention on strong to go from statewide to nationwide."We will not be in the national championship game."
Strong start to the tour.
To act like this is some huge revelation is wrong, and to act like Strong is wrong for saying it is also wrong.  It's establishing what the new Texas football program looks like.  Four months into the job Strong has proven he couldn't care less what anyone on the outside thinks.  He's running this show his way.  
Saturday's spring game was pretty underwhelming for the most part, right?  Strong admitted as much, telling the Dallas Morning News he thinks that UT still has a long way to go.  He said it with a chuckle, almost as to say, "I see what you see.  Don't worry."  
He then added, "Seeing the team this spring - we have a lot of work to do."
It's not such a bad thing that he isn't thrilled with what he sees.  In many ways, he shouldn't be.  Texas went 8-5 last year.  You can't expect a team four months later to look like a 13-0 national title contender.
He's keeping expectations where they should be for now - low.Charlie Strong is doing this the right way.  That's his way.  This will either work out or it won't, but in the end it will all fall on his shoulders.  Which is exactly what he wants.Charlie Strong: No National Title in '15
