I discount any assertions that Charlie Strong is on a short leash and needs to win in 2015. You’d be surprised how often Saturday fans believe this and bring it up in passing. At a bare minimum, 2016 is the big year and that’s the way it should be. Until the team is re-made in Strong’s image you can’t really fault him for the transition unless he’s recruiting terribly. Since he’s not recruiting terribly, he’ll get plenty of time. Texas would have to regress over the next two years for this conversation to have any merit whatsoever.
