On Monday's Big 12 coaches conference call, Strong was asked about the prevalence of the spread offense in the Big 12. Texas adopted a more high-tempo spread attack this season, bringing Sterlin Gilbert in from Tulsa, and Strong noted that teams are looking to the success of programs like TCU and Baylor and trying to match them.
