“Embarrassment” was the word for the day for Texas coach Charlie Strong at his weekly press conference at the Moncrief-Neuhaus Athletic Center on Monday. Here are a few of the Notes and Quotes.
**”We’re taking this game more personal than you are.” – Strong, told the players before BYU kickoff
**Ash out indefinitely. “Swoopes is our quarterback.” Still no timetable on the suspended players, Desmond Harrison, Kennedy Estelle, Josh Turner, and Daje Johnson returning Strong said. “There’s no committee and no one to appeal to. When I make a decision to suspend someone, that’s my decision,” said Strong. He tells the players,”95 percent of the team is doing it the right way.” He says to the other five percent: “Why can’t you do this?”
**”Nobody ripped off the BYU game clippings, never been at a place where the players wouldn’t have ripped that stuff off the wall,” said Strong.
**”I don’t even know if I ever had one. Did I ever have one?” – Strong, when asked if the honeymoon’s over
**”You’d like for one to stand up and say enough is enough.” – Strong, on his seniors
**”The coaches, we’re accountable, too. I’m just eaten up inside by what happened,” said Strong.
**Charlie Strong on facing QB Brett Hundley and UCLA: “We’re gonna have to mix up our coverages, and play both man and zone.”
**Kicker Nick Jordan is “injured” according to Strong. No detail on injury or timetable for return.
