Texas QB Swoopes still struggling after 4 starts

Texas coach Charlie Strong saw Tyrone Swoopes sitting down for lunch and quickly walked over to offer a big handshake and an even bigger smile before the small talk ended with a chuckle.

This is how Strong wants to handle his struggling sophomore quarterback: Build him up. Don't tear him down.

Four starts into his career, Swoopes is still in need of a big lift, coming off a poor performance in a loss to Baylor that sends the Longhorns(2-3, 1-1 Big 12) into Saturday's rivalry game against No. 11 Oklahoma (4-1, 1-1) on a two-game skid.
