Texas coach Charlie Strong issued a strong statement Friday after one of his senior leaders, OG Kent Perkins, was arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated. "We're disappointed in his actions and take a strong stance against drinking and driving," Strong said. When you get behind the wheel after drinking, you not only risk your life, but the lives of others, and that's something you just can't do. We will make sure that Kent learns from this and handle any punishment once we have more information."

What can Charlie Strong do to fix Texas' defense?

Texas was again gouged for yards and points in a loss to Cal. More powerful offenses are coming, but dumping the defensive coordinator won't help. This comes down to Charlie Strong.

Texas freshman QB Shane Buechele says he's fine after the chest injury he suffered in a loss to Cal. Buechele shot down any talk that he might've suffered a concussion in the game.

Charlie Strong has been asked directly whether he needs to take defensive playcalling duties away from DC Vance Bedford. He won't say whether that's the plan but insisted: "The defense will get fixed. Whatever I need to do to get it fixed will happen."

Texas coach Charlie Strong says he'll spend the bye week evaluating his coaching staff after a 50-43 loss at Cal. No announcements today, but Strong did say accountability is important going forward. He vowed his defense will get fixed and said: "I can get more involved and I will be more involved."

Texas coach Charlie Strong says he is not concerned about the poor nonconference showing of the Big 12. "The good thing about it now," Strong said, "is they all count." Makes sense that he's focused primarily on the Longhorns, who lost at Cal Saturday and open league play at Oklahoma State after a bye this week. No doubt, at Texas, though, the out-of-league games count for a lot, too.
