3 Things That Must Change Before 'Horns Are a National Title Team

The pressure is on Texas head coach Charlie Strong and his new staff to return Longhorn football back to prominence.

The Texas Longhorns are no longer recognized as a powerhouse football program, and Charlie Strong has had enough of the mediocrity. 

"I told the team what I expected of them," Strong said. "I told them how unhappy I am with where the program is right now. It falls upon all of us and it's going to be on all of us to go get it right."

If you have watched Texas football over the last four seasons, you don't see the hard-nosed, mean team that Longhorn fans were used to seeing between 2004-2009. The term "soft" has often been used when discussing the Longhorns, and Strong is eager to change it.

"If something is soft, you can get it hard," Strong said. "You just have to build toughness. If you build toughness, you can get things back to the right way."

But getting things back to the right way will not be easy and could take some time.

The list of necessary changes for Texas could extend for miles, but the primary focus should be on three.

Here's a look at three big changes that must be made in order for the Longhorns to return to the top of the college football world.
