Year two of the Charlie Strong era begins just 50 days from today. The 'Horns experienced an up-and-down first season under Strong, at times playing like the team Strong envisions them to be - wins over West Virginia and Oklahoma State, and even in losses to Oklahoma and Baylor - and at other times not looking anywhere close. With his first full recruiting class and another off-season to build on, it'll be interesting to see how much further Texas has progressed.
"You know deep down who you are," Strong tells his team. "You don't need anybody to tell you anything. You know what you're made of. You know your passions, your desires, your determination. You know what's inside of you. What we're talking about here is the hard work starting from January to here, to now, a game you guys have been pointing at. Why not go out today and give it everything you've got. Let's go get it taken care of."
Texas kicks off the 2015 season at Notre Dame at 7:30 p.m. ET.
