Strong has people thinking positive and optimistic about the future. However, after a recent appearance at a coaching clinic people had nothing optimistic or positive to say about him.
According to some of these coaches that is far from the case.
Travis Haney--who was in attendance--recounted some of the comments he heard in a recent post for ESPN:
“I think everyone was shocked. It was that bad,” one coach told me later.Haney also talked about hearing someone laugh at loud when Strong finished his speech. He described a person that spoke more like he was trying to finish his speech in under two minutes instead of 20, and that his train of thought was hard to follow sometimes.
“It made me miss Mack,” one joked.
Another: “If I was the coach at Texas, I would act like I had bigger balls than that.”
There was pretty much nothing nice about Strong in Haney's post; a combination of his own thoughts and those of coaches at the clinic.
Something doesn't sound right about this at all. If he was this bad of a speaker word would have gotten out after one of the many speaking engagements on his tour of the state. Yeah, he was speaking in front of Longhorn crowds, but there is always someone that likes to spill gossip on social media.
It would be interesting to hear from some of these coaches that were there or see some video of the event. That way people could judge for themselves rather than take a blogger for his word (because we all know what kind of dirty rats they are).
