Texas HC Charlie Strong says he's never seen such one-sided officiating

New, 95 comments

Strong's Monday press conference covered a variety of topics, but the officiating from Saturday's game against Oklahoma State took center stage.

Texas Longhorns head coach Charlie Strong was clearly intent on avoiding any possible fines during his Monday media availiability wrapping up the loss against the Oklahoma State Cowboys and previewing next weekend's game against the TCU Horned Frogs.

Strong said that the team has to make its own luck when asked about the plays Texas might submit to the league office for review and laughingly said he forgot what he said to the official that earned him a personal foul penalty in a critial moment. On that play, he took responsibliity for getting the flag and noted that he needs to avoid similar reactions to questionable class in the future.

However, the Texas head coach was also candid when asked if he'd ever seen a game with such one-sided officiating. "No, I haven't," he said.

Just like he'd never seen defensive holding called on a running play.
