AUSTIN (105.3 THE FAN) — The expectations won’t be lowered for Charlie Strong in his first season leading the Texas Longhorns. But on Monday, Strong suggested otherwise — maybe they should be.
Strong told the Austin American Statesman that fans shouldn’t expect the Longhorns to be national title contenders next season.
“We will not be in the national championship game,” said Strong.
Strong clarified the comments with New School on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday morning.
“We still have a long ways to go now. We still have a lot of work,” said Strong. ” You look at it, having the chance to get through spring ball. You look at it, just talent-wise with what we have right now. It’s a lot of work. To get to that game, you have to have a really good football team, and I just don’t know how good we are right now.”
