Source: Charlie Strong accepts Texas head coaching job

(And this is seemingly how the news broke to most of the world…many Louisville players included)

After 24 hours of pure drama, started by the “high ranking officials” from Texas, Charlie Strong has accepted the position as head coach at Texas (according to ESPN). A source says that Strong informed Louisville AD Tom Jurich in a meeting last night at Strong’s home that lasted no more than an hour. Now Cardinal fans get to endure what Kentucky fans went through last year, which is the next phase of drama– the coaching search. Get ready to hear names you never thought you’d here, names that are completely out of Louisville’s league, and Bobby Petrino.

Go Cats.

    Say what you will, Jurich is a great AD in respect to finding top quality and bringing them in. When he makes a mistake, he does not wait to make a change. He will not let anyone drive his football program into the ground like we did with Joker. He reminds me of Al Davis, don’t care, “just win baby.”

    First of all, Charlie Strong was a great hire for UL and did a great job while he was there. A great fit. I don’t think he is a great fit for Texas, however. Totally different culture. I’m not sure that he will be able to meet the demands of the most powerful college football program in the country. Time will tell. And Jurich will make a good hire and it won’t take him long. I’m not a Cards fan, at all. Just keeping it real.

      @rei – you might want to leave the thinking to others – you’re not so good at it. Louisville’s last four coaches won at a .667 clip (Mich st., Atlanta falcons, nowhere & Texas). Contrast that to uk’s last four – losing at a .667 clip (Baylor, old age home, nowhere, soon to be nowhere).

      Just Sayin,,,before you start making comments on other peoples thinking you may want to look at the teams your beloved Tards have been playing. . If UK played the same weak as schedule that Louisville has the past few years, we would have been a whole lot more successful. For instance, the BCS people did not think to much of your big 11 and 1 team this year did they ?

    • Just sayin
      9:18 am January 5, 2014 Permalink

      The BCS sure thought a lot of them last year – as did the gay-tors. Hey, speaking of opponents, don’t the yuts play Florida? This year UofL had a terrible 3 point loss to UCF – anybody know how they did in their bowl game? You can play the parity card all you want but when your team hasn’t won a conference game in two years, it rings a bit hollow.

    • Beavis

      No illusions? You’re joking right? What about all of the hype all summer – you’re gonna backtrack on that? Fact is, uk never got closer than a touchdown in any of it’s losses – that’s pathetic. I’m not worried that Strong is gone – thanks for your time – next. You all are the ones worried because it isn’t kragthorpe walking through that door – its Petrino. Those 2 TD losses will seem like ties to you goofs in the next few years.

    • Beavis
      10:14 am January 5, 2014 Permalink

      Beg your pardon, I did not suffer those ” illusions” that our program would be any better than the year before. In fact, I correctly called their won/loss record. Why are you so worried about UK, things slow on the Louisville web sites this morning ? If you guys are so worried about beating us next year that you will hire back Petrino after the Kabuki Theater he put you through last time, well lets just say you deserve it. Remember when he said he was not interested in the Atlanta job, just as he was photographed getting off an airplane in Atlanta ? Do you want that kind of drama queen at the head of your program again ? There were a lot of people here that were glad to see Pitino go because of the constant rumors about him taking a job somewhere else. Don’t put yourselves through the Petrino mess again, the guy is a low life sleaze, you can do better.

      Without question, uavel football fans always have been – and always will be – delusional.

      The delusion is 50% part nature and 50% part nurture.

      Its in their DNA, and the junk they’re programmatically fed by the BBN (Big Bird Nation).

      Like Sesame Street, their value is pounded into their bird brain by playing no one and winning in a trophies-for-everyone – ‘we are all winners’ – conference

      Now joining a fairly decent conference, Uavel football is on a collision course with mediocrity.

      They wanted it; they got it; a new train stop.

      uavel will suffer in a semi-legit football conference.

      Again, collision course with mediocrity.

      You are so right! Uk’s thrilling music city bowl games against (clearly disinterested) 7-5 opponents are judged to be every bit the equal, of not just Louisville’s BCS wins, but all BCS wins ever by any program! In a related thought, if uk ever wins even a new years day bowl in the future, it will be considered as big a a Super Bowl win!

    8:09 am January 5, 2014 Permalink

    In the current century (you know, the era that actually matters), Louisville is 120-56. UKay hasn’t even won 1/3 of their games in the same time period — in fact, their W/L record this century is worse than Vandy’s.

    I will admit that one thing is embarrassing — Louisville is only 12-8 against UKay in the modern era. It is unacceptable for Louisville not to have won at least 80% of its games against the third best football school in the state.

    • Apples and Oranges
      8:27 am January 5, 2014 Permalink

      Now why don’t you get really deep in your analysis and take a look at strength of schedule for both programs during that time? I’m not saying that this totally excuses UK Football from the major suckage they have put forth on the field during this time, but I think it is safe to say that the gaudy numbers that UL posted in the W column would not looks so golden against decent competition. True, they did win their BCS bowl games, but take them back to ground zero for rebuilding, and try to do it with the elevation on the treadmill set all the way up, and I think you will find that they would not achieve a record good enough to get them into those BCS bowl games in the first place. UL has done a good job building up a very decent program, and Jurich is excellent in finding coaching talent (maybe not so good in holding onto them), but some UL fans that want to make their football program into some kind of top ten dynasty amuse me.

    • Wild Blue
      8:32 am January 5, 2014 Permalink

      And Louisville’s schedule included the equivalent of high school teams during this “current century”. When you actually play teams consistently that rank in the top 20 you will see that you’re not that good. Could hardly beat UK this year. Go UCF.

    • What really matters
      8:59 am January 5, 2014 Permalink

      Anyone would agree that UL is better than us right now having won three straight but we just beat you four straight before that. And now we are getting better players than you. 12/8 shows we are pretty close. Conference affiliation is the differance in overall records.

      However, in what matters most to all of us its kind of embarressing for us that in the same period you mentioned, even though we have owned you in basketball, you still have only 5 wins against us. 5/6 is pretty much total domination.

      9:06 am January 5, 2014 Permalink

      Sorry but the modern era doesn’t start in 2000, as bad as you want it to for your arguments sake. As stated by others, UofL has played a terrible schedule in any “ERA” so please don’t compare schedules as if they tell the story.

    • The Kragthorpe era was a travesty.
      9:16 am January 5, 2014 Permalink

      I’ve already ceded that the 12-8 record against the kittens is an embarrassment to the school. The Kragthorpe era gave us at least two losses that should have been wins (Brahm’s senior year and Strong’s first year), and a 14-6 record would have been much more reasonable and respectable at the moment. So long as TJ doesn’t botch this next hire, I predict we’ll move much more quickly to a 70-80% win rate.

    Supposedly Texas was dead set on hiring an African-American (Strong will be the first AA coach there in ANY male sport). So you have to take that into consideration regarding “fitting in” there. They’re going to want him to succeed so I doubt they put him in positions where his weaknesses stand out. I thought I read somewhere that Rich Rodriguez can have the U of L job if he wants it?

    • harry

      If Strong wanted to leave this would be a perfect time. He did, so no surprise there. A very smart decision to say the least. As far as Texas on hiring a black coach, I’m not sure how to quantify that unless I am a decision maker. To me personally, it doesn’t matter so long as the outcome sought is fulfilled. At some point, we have to give up white/black issue.

    First of ALL Charlie was alright; every domino just happened to fall into place at the right time for what he did to happen. Some skill, a hell of a lot of luck. If he didn’t have Teddy, none of it would have happened; take Teddy away & what do you have? The same team that beat Florida, is also the same team that lost to UConn at home.

    If UL is so great & such a great place to be, then why does every coach keep leaving? Reality !! UL is & will always be the job to the next job.

    Jurich has done some good things, but since UL was in a black hole when he took over, any improvement looks huge. No he didn’t negotiate the Yum Center deal, they just gave it to UL. UL has somehow con Frankfort into giving them 3 special taxing districts to pay for all their crap since UL fans & Alumni don’t give back to UL.

    Bring on the PR nightmare that is Petrino.

    Strong would have been better off if he had waited until next year to change jobs. Why ? The Florida job will be open next year. The Florida faithful will not put up with Will Muschamp after another mediocre season. So, why would he jump ship this year ? I can only assume he saw the hand writing on the wall. Much better competition, loosing key players, difficulties recruiting. ( even against UK ) Guess he figured he might not get a shot at the Florida job after next year.

    Dear Mr Jerk-itch:

    I just wanted to say thank you for allowing me to coach at Louisville.

    After 3 years I have decided that the City and the University blows big time.

    This dump of a school will never have the student body or fan base that supports Football.

    You all worship Pinto and football is a second class sport.

    See you later suckers.

      Dear Mr. Barnfart,
      I just want to say that I made a mistake leaving FSU.
      It took me 10 seconds to realize what a nowhere cowtown this place is, and how ignorant its residents are.
      This dumpster fire of a school will never commit the resources to even be consistently mediocre.
      You all worship 18 year old basketball players that have as much desire to stick around here as I do.
      Unfortunately, I’m stuck until my brother Bob hires me to coach special teams for the Browns.

    Really Everyone…….It doesn’t matter who the tards hire. They are still stepping stone U and in 5 years another one or 2 coaches will have come and gone…….No decent self respecting coach would turn down a job at a real university with a real college tradition to stay at school that plays in a stadium that is named for a pizza company and not the school, and with adults trying to masquerade as college students at the games. Any coach will quickly get sick of the ignorance and lack of knowledge of anything in college athletics that happens outside of the reaches of Louisville. At the end of the day the TARDS are what they are and always will be regardless of who coaches their football team.

    LOSERVILLE does good in bowl games because they have no injuries to deal with playing that weak ass schedule. The Miami game would’ve been much different with their starting running back. Charlie knew he couldn’t compete week in week out against FSU, Miami, VaTech, Clemson, GT, UNC and yes even Duke. You look pretty good playing 1-2 real teams each year. It was a no brainer for him to go, where would you rather live, I’m sure the city of LOSERVILLE didn’t look too good then. But I’m still shocked that Texas hired an unproven coach such as Strong. This same LOSERVILLE team with Teddy Touchdown would’ve been lucky to go 500 in the SEC, Big 12, Pac 12 and maybe even the weak ass Big 10. And I wouldn’t worry about him taking any UL players with him, you have to be able to read and write to get into Texas.

    Seems like every time someone says UL is a “stepping stone” program the fan base takes it as a shot against the program and university which in my thinking is false. Rather. It is FACT that UL is a stepping stone program – please don’t be offended. And UK fans realize – well hopefully – that UL has a better football program on all levels irrespective of competition level, etc. Overall, UL fans simply need to realize that for every good, solid coach that comes in, more likely than not they are going to leave the program for “greener pastures.” Strong obviously the most recent, but the likes of Bobby Petrino, John L. Smith, and Lee Corso have all done the same – stay 3-5 years and leave UL for the next head coach to so the same.

    Jim,, I got sucked into all the hype for years about how the UK football team was going to shock the world. Got shocked alright, by how bad they were. Our AD should have gone to Florida with Joker. Worse coaching hire in the history of college football. Finally that little ego maniac AD we have may have hired the right coach because he feared for his own job. Stoops has been tireless in his pursuit of better talent and better coaches. Nice to see recruits mention us in the same sentence with LSU, Alabama and Ohio State. Keep an open mind. If Stoops can continue the momentum , in a couple of years he will be successful here. Sure seems to have the Louisville fans worried by the number of them on this site.

      Teams who hoped to be playing for a National Championship and just miss out, almost always have a let down if they perceive that their “bowl” game is beneath them. (see Alabama this year, Florida last year), the head-to-head says it all, sadly there is little difference between the two schools in football, UK 4-3 or UL 12-8, its even. Neither will ever be a National Champion. Or even a real contender, even with a weak ACC schedule. L1C5! LOL

    I here a whole lot of bashing of both teams on here. You should keep your nasty comments to yourselves. The truth is, outside of basketball, the rest of the country looks at KY and Louisville football as a joke. KY fans are deeply sore that they will never have a quality program in the SEC. Louisville will have that opportunity by being in the ACC, but it will be very difficult for them because of their national perception. Many of you are right… UL fans are tired of being a stepping stone, just like UK fans are tired of being at the bottom of the SEC every year.

    Real class act. The fact is that neither University is looking for that kind of individual.
    Tom Jurich is one of the best if not the best AD in the country. You can’t argue that. Just look at what he has done at UL.
    Since 2000 Louisville is the only NCAA team to win a BCS bowl game; to appear in the Men’s basketball Final Four, the College Baseball World Series, and the women’s basketball Final Four; and to finish as runner-up in the Men’s soccer College Cup. It is one of only six schools that has appeared more than once in each of the following events–a BCS bowl game, the men’s and women’s basketball Final Fours, and the College World Series–and Louisville’s span of seven school years (2006—07 to 2012—13) is the shortest among these schools.[2] Also, it is the first school ever to win a BCS bowl game, appear in the men’s and women’s basketball Final Fours, and appear in the College World Series in the same school year, doing so in 2012—13.[2]
