Strong speaks on Bedford, Big 12 play, and getting better

AUSTIN — One way to tell if there will be personnel changes in the Longhorn lineup, apparently, is when Texas does not release a Depth Chart.

For the second time this season, Charlie Strong did not provide a 2-deep during his weekly Monday press conference. At the same time, he continued to stress the need to get the “right personnel” on the field to cement a porous defense.

AUSTIN — Up next for Vance Bedford’s defense is a California team that boasts the nation’s No. 2 passing offense but does little else well. Should we expect more of the 3-3-5 that Bedford unveiled against UTEP? And who gets the start at SS?

It’s a misnomer to label the alignment as a three-man front, however.

Texas’ 50-47 knockout of Notre Dame in double-overtime was like a “15-round heavyweight fight”, Charlie Strong surmised on the morning after.

Texas DC Vance Bedford wants to play up to eight D-linemen, but which freshmen are standing head-and-shoulder pads above the rest? Should we expect MLB Malik Jefferson at his more natural spot on the edge, and how is it that former walk-on FS Dylan Haines manages to keep his starting job?

Comfortably Strong

AUSTIN — Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly hasn’t announced his starting QB and, now, Charlie Strong hasn’t either. In fact, Texas broke custom by not even releasing a depth chart Monday.
