Good hire if true. Dude is a great recruiter and defensive mind....will have a massive amount of resources. He already does good work in SFla.....I expect Texas to be very active down there and the street agents will steer kids there due to the cash they have at their disposal. Charlie really wanted the UF job last time it came open and its no secret that the BullGator mega donors didn't want a black coach with a white wife. He ended up doing even better....good for him!

Glad that we won't have to deal with him next year in the ACC.

The Cotton Bowl is setting up to be an exciting finish. It's tied 24-24, with almost 10 minutes left. I don't know what you all are discussing...

ESPN is saying Strong has not accepted and wants to talk to the Louisville AD and president.

Texas: Bobby Burton of 247 Sports reports that Charlie Strong will be the next head coach at Texas. Chip Brown of OrangeBloods.com also reports that Strong has indicated he will accept the job. Jeremy Fowler of CBS Sports reports Strong has not told his staff. ESPN's Brett McMurphy reports Strong wants to talk with Louisville administration. CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman says Texas has not made a decision.

He will own fools with all of the Texas power.

Clemson beats OSU in a fun Orange Bowl.

Tip of the hat to fellow ACC mates Clemson, I'm glad they beat OSU and Meyer. Dabo is a class guy and I'm happy for him and Inferno.

Ohio State loses. Urban will have "heart problems" again and bail that program.

Glad with both results. But, seriously, kind of sick of the general "S-E-C! S-E-C!" fans on my Facebook and Twitter feed. Pride in your team playing the top conference and generally pulling for it to have a good showing? Sure, I get that.

But I have Arkansas fans bragging about SEC vs Big 12 bowl records this year? When their team won three (cupcake non-con) games all year? It's like Detroit Lion fans bragging about that 13 year NFC Super Bowl streak or something. Or the Raiders being proud that Denver, KC and SD all made the playoffs. Just weird.

Thanks, good sir. Should have won by multiple scores if not for Tahj trying to piss it down his leg and the blatantly biased officiating. Braxton Miller should slip Matt Millern a twenty spot for all the fellating he did.

I don't know many fans of SEC teams that aren't like that. It's why it was so awesome watching Alabama lose.

I'm a huge Arkansas fan. That's my Alma mater. I always root for SEC dominance because it's responsible for growing Arkansas's revenue.

It's different in the pros. I'm obviously a Broncos fan. I never root for Oakland or KC unless they're playing each other. I've always rooted for the NFC in the Super Bowl the last 14 years. If no Broncos make the pro bowl, then I hope the AFC loses just for not choosing any. I have no loyalty to the AFC. I want the other 15 teams to get beat down so that the Broncos get the top seed.

I don't care what it is, but I will 99% of the time not root for Texas. Texas can suck it every single year. I rooted hard for Alabama in the 2009 NC game because screw Texas.
And I'm sure Texas fans were the same when OU was in their NC games.

I sort of understand the revenue thing (though, honestly, the Big Ten schools are pulling in big money right now no matter how bad the conference shows in the bowls). And, more than that, I get having regional pride in the quality of the conference.

But what is with the outright bragging about Alabama from people who the rest of the year were comparing Nick Saban to Satan? It's like a bizzaro kind of bandwagoning that some "SEC fans" start beating their chest when the same teams that embarrassed their alma mater beats a Big 12 team in a bowl. Up here, an Illinois fan acting really excited about the Orange Bowl because Ohio St had Big Ten pride on the line would have gotten very strange looks...especially from Ohio St fans.

The NFL analogy wasn't perfect, but given the recruiting battles that rage inside the conference, the postseason success of rival teams is actually more meaningful in NCAA in regards to your eliminated team than in the NFL. Mizzou looking good on national TV could negatively affect recruiting for Arkansas if they're going after the same players this offseason. It's much more complicated than that, obviously, but it's a factor.

I can't imagine any of the other Big Ten schools were sad to see Ohio St lose. Because all 11 other teams ****ing hate them...and want to close the recruiting gap.
