Charlie Strong's post-UTEP/pre-Cal Monday Press Conference

"And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart."
Galatians 6:9

Good stuff here:

  • "Buchele did an outstanding job again."
    • "Week by week, game by game...he continues to improve."
  • "It's going to be a challenge for us being on the road for the first time."
  • "Sterling and the offensive staff are doing an unbelievable job."
  • "When you have competition it forces guys to execute."
  • "The whole attitude has changed."
  • "The defense knows that the offense is going to take the ball and go score...and our offense feels good that the defense can go out there and stop 'em."
  • Jerrod Heard: "Brings energy to the whole team."
  • "All of our starters will be back for this week."
  • Penalties: "VERY concerned."
    • "The penalties are really costing us."
    • "We've got a more disciplined football team."
    • If guys get a penalty during games "they're gonna run for it."
    • Author's Note: They got much better on the penalty front over the course of last season, so there's a precedent here.
  • Buchele: "Is just so calm."
    • "The teammates, they respect him so much."
    • He treats every one of his teammates like equals.
    • "He never makes it about himself."
  • Defense: "It's always about stopping the run."
    • Cal game: "It's about yards after the catch."
    • Can't allow penalties to extend drives.
  • Cal game: "You're taking a young team into a hostile environment."
    • "We're going to have to play unbelievable can take the crowd out of the game with unbelievable defense."
    • "This is a business trip and you need to treat it like a business trip."
  • Watch "how the receivers take over now."
  • This is going to be Cal's first home game.
  • Cal threw the ball 68 times last week.
    • Author's Note: All the more reason for Texas to establish the run game.
  • Running back: "You're going to see all three of them."
    • Foreman, Warren, and Kyle Porter.
  • "We need to get turnovers."
