Charlie Strong doesn't need to beat Oklahoma today to solidify his tenure at Texas. But he can't afford to get run out of the Cotton Bowl, either. Given the infighting in the locker room, this feels like a fork-in-the-road game for the Longhorns. If they no-show for a second straight week, the season could really spiral. Conversely, if they hang tough, even if they don't win, that could give Strong something to build off of going forward.
