If the 5-6 Longhorns lose Friday's game against the TCU Horned Frogs, they will finish with three consecutive losing seasons for the first since 1936-38. The embattled head coach's time at Texas is likely coming to an end.
"It sparked us", Beaty said.
The Twitterverse and Interwebs are certain to be bubbling over with #FireCharlie and #StrongMustGo in hashtag or any other form, and if those cries are intense enough, the donors will respond appropriately (in fact, some of them may very well be surreptitiously posting such things). "It's always nice. I hope I can get a couple hundred more here at Texas". It all seemed to come too late for Strong.
That question being asked was kind of like wrangling the elephant in the room.
Moving on from Strong won't be a painless procedure by any means. We've just got to just pull it together.
Said Loneker, a Lawrence native who starred at Free State High: "That's the best feeling I've had as a KU player and probably the best feeling I've had after a game ever in my whole career".
Strong's buyout now sits at $10 million. But at least now Texas leadership can move swiftly with some peace of mind that they're doing what must be done.

The new assessment is for continuous, aka unconventional, oil and gas considered undiscovered, technically recoverable resources. Such advances "can have significant effects on what resources are technically recoverable", he said.
D'Onta Foreman looks to continue his recent tear - and break a school record - when Texas travels to Kansas on Saturday. And they blew it. He ran for 250 yards.
Don't know why Longhorn players going on Twitter to lobby for Charlie Strong to stay.
In OT, Texas was on offense first, and the second play was a Mike Lee interception on a poor throw by the Longhorn QB. He's now lost 10 games by one-score margins. A Kansas fumble negated any chance to put up points trailing 14-10.
The Notre Dame win was misleading. Struggling was expected as Strong and his staff tried to restock the pantry, build up the depth chart, and most importantly, find a quarterback. Freshman quarterback Shane Buechele found receiver Jacorey Warrick from 75-yards out, giving the Longhorns a 7-0 lead.
Strong, in his third season with the Longhorns, was once the darling of the coaching world as head coach of the Louisville Cardinals. The Jayhawks (2-9, 1-7 Big 12) had only won a single game since the start of the 2015 season, and that was the opening week win against Rhode Island this season. He couldn't reach it.
Who comes next? Tom Herman is the name everyone keeps mentioning, as he's guiding Houston to another strong season, which included wins over Oklahoma and Louisville. Even after Strong secured a blue-chip recruiting class this past February, it felt as if he was coaching for his future every time he took the field.
For once delight ruled the day for the Jayhawks, who defeated Texas for the first time since 1938.
