Texas Longhorns Players Threatening to Boycott TCU Game Over Charlie Strong Being Fired
There’s not too many coaches in the NCAA that almost everybody wanted to see succeed like people wanted Texas Longhorns coach Charlie Strong to succeed.
Every time the Longhorns had a big win, they always seemed to follow it up with a terrible loss. That happened once again on Saturday when the Longorns lost to the Kansas Jayhawks for the first time since 1938.
Then the rumors started swirling about Strong being fired, but he has yet to hear anything from the university.

Those rumors have many on the Longhorns squad upset and ready to boycott the regular-season finale against TCU if Strong is indeed fired, like reports state that he will be, according to the Hookem.
“Amidst the swirl of speculation about Charlie Strong’s future and reports that the Texas head football coach would be fired this week, several Longhorn players are considering boycotting this week’s regular-season finale against TCU, according to a source close to the Texas football program. Upperclassmen on the team are intervening and trying to calm the waters according to the source.
“Some of the team is threatening to boycott the TCU game,” the source said. “Older players are trying to settle things down.”
