When news broke over the weekend that Charlie Strong was leaving to head to Texas the first thing I thought about was how it would effect the players, more specifically Lorenzo Mauldin. Mauldin has been vocal in his time here about the influence Strong had on him, how he had been father figure to him. Since the announcement, Lorenzo has made it clear that he was hurt by the fact that Strong didn’t tell him, or any of the players, before packing his bags. Mauldin is an exciting player to watch, he loves the games, and seems to be an all around great guy. All that being said, I thought I would do my small part to help him through this tough time. He will be back next year better than ever.
