Charlie Strong ain’t real, according to at least one Louisville player

Charlie Strong was just introduced to the Texas media in a nationally televised press conference on ESPN and at least one of his former players was watching back in Louisville. That player, defensive back Andrew Johnson, had a little something to say on Twitter while his old ball coach, the man who brought him to Louisville, Kentucky from Miami, Florida, let out a loud “Hook ‘Em Horns” in Austin.

Real or not, Strong’s wardrobe tribute to Henry Hill is very real, as pointed out by Adam Lefkoe. Look at that Goodfellas collar he is sporting today.

Louisville STILL BALLS, though.

      At 22 and 3 the last 2 years and and only 1 win against a top 10 ranked opponent, I’d say he stole the keys to Ft. Knox (if there is any gold left there, I don’t know)… It’ll be interesting to see how much time the TU alums give the guy…. he will have an opportunity to recruit in a great state for high school football but it’s all about winning and winning against the big boys. Think OU’s stoops braggin ’bout the big 12 after bu and osu cratered… charlie tuna is gonna have to make it happen… and now!!

    I expect that Twitter account to use the words “doe” and “bruh” quite a bit. He’s obviously an intellectual. These kids tweet all day about how they’re “chasin dat paper”, but now they’re mad about their coach realizing his dream and get paid millions to do it?

      Probably will be announced that his Twitter was “hacked” very shortly.

    Seems like UK basketball has taken a backseat to UL and Matt Elam on this website.

      That is your complaint? When Elam was the biggest UK recruiting story and the Louisville football coach the other….. not to mention UK basketball hasn’t played since 12/28 and won’t play again until Wednesday…… really?

    Soooo, Charlie Strong is fake? I am confused now. I thought he was real, but apparently he isn’t real. He is fake. So may the REAL Charlie Strong please stand up….. Please

      Thank you!! I’m very confused by this guys tweet. Maybe he just doesn’t want to beleive that Charlie is gone and went out outside to throw football to himself to deal with the pain.

    9-asty—two things….I like these type of posts…helps me survive my job. Second, great name…9-asty. I would go with “Ninasty” —- Trademark this one and make t-shirts. Also, “Texas Strong”–trademark that one as well….millions I tell you, millions.

    Hookem horns salute is second in stupidity to throwin’ up the L’s. Both are ridiculous so it is only fitting that he ends up there. That being said who wouldn’t leave Louisville or ,UK football for that matter to coach at the University of Texas(Texas University whatever). Louisville football is not a destination job, Texas is.

      Yeah, I agree, both are about as stupid as the 3-goggles.

      yeah because when people think about Kentucky they throw up 3-goggles. No no wait this just in that is in fact a lie.

    So who was the guy pretending to be Charlie Strong? And how did he get by with pulling a coaching Milli Vanilli?

    I really hate sharing the same name as that guy. It makes me sad. And you wouldn’t like me when I’m sad. Or hungry for that matter.

    Is it natural for these players to be upset with the coach that lured them to play for these losers? The NCAA needs to openly invite the Cardinals to go wherever they’d like with the capability of playing immediately. I don’t blame Charlie for leaving one bit but if the NCAA is going to operate like a business on the coaching side then it needs to make sure it protects the side they pretend to care about the most. I hope UofL hires Petrino… they deserve each other.

    Did we start providing this much coverage to U of L sports on this site? KSR Is covering their coaching move like it was Joker’s departure.

    If Strong thought he has pressure at Loserville, he hasnt seen anything yet. Dont know if he will be able to handle the pressure there..

      Should be capital “I”, in “I like them”.
      Should be “posts”. Plural.
      Should be “people’s”. Possessive..

      There, I fixed as many of the grammar and spelling mistakes as my remedial english training would allow me.

    Strong should give some of his new Texas money to Teddy Bridgewater, because if it was not for him he would be a .500 coach.

    I wish UK Football would have had Strong for 4 years.

    How is that a city school like Loserville can hire much better football coaches than UK?

      They do by playing a weak ass schedule thus making them look like a real football team. If they played UK’s schedule every year they would have shared our fate. You have to hand to strong, he used the Tennessee job offer to rip off turdville and Texas!

      Strong is going to get $25 million even if he is fired. We would all be lucky to make mistakes like that.

    Has anyone noticed that he is not holding the “Hook ‘Em” sign properly? The thumb should be to the side of the middle finger…he has a lot to learn.

    I saw a newspaper guy that covers Texas football on ESPN, and he said the Texas A.D. had a search committee for the football job, but he went on his own on picking Strong. So, some of the big money people on the committee may not be all in on Strong.
