Charlie Strong Talks Texas Bowl

Charlie Strong had a private conference call with the media at 5:15 p.m. Here are the keys to what he said:

Strong said they've already talked about TCU and it's time to move on.

Strong mentions being in Houston will help with recruiting.

No update on Shipley.

Main goal is to get a win for seniors.

On not being recruited by Arkansas: "I wasn't a good enough athlete at the time."

On Swoopes: "Tyrone needs to play better. But the whole team needs to play better too. Tyrone, when he plays well everyone praises him, when he doesn't everyone criticizes him. Everyone around him needs to play better. The offensive line.Tyrone needs to manage the offense, not turn over the football, and he needs to continue to get better."

On if he'll play young players to prep for next season: "We don't have any young players to play."

Was asked if he had any feelings on the Big 12 being left out of the CFB Playoff: ""I have no feelings on that."

On importance of winning game to finish season with winning record (7-6): "Well it's always important. You want to go out and win any game you play in. You prepare to win it. Our focus is to win this game. But it's about the seniors. You want to send them in the right way."

Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema: "Texas is Texas. The part that's the biggest challenge is playing Texas in Texas."
