Congratulations to Mack Brown on 7 straight 10-win seasons!

Seriously! No sarcasm here... why are you looking at me like that? I'm being serious!

I've been a UT fan for about 7-8 years. This year, I don't think I've ever been more frustrated, given the expectations. I believed you guys. I thought we were going to be real good and live up to the pre-season rankings.

Then I realized... holy crap! Our defense SUCKS! Especially our secondary. And wow... after injuries, our offensive line was a bunch of freshman babies! There ended up being so many question marks and weaknesses.

Losing all those players to the NFL. All the injuries like Sweed and Griffin. All the JC fumbles. All the Colt INTs. Not using Chiles. Not using Finley. Completely disappearing on special teams. No blocked kicks, punts, FGs. The Greg Davis ineptitude. The regression of all the veterans that Brown trusted. All the close wins to teams we should've beaten easily.

And yet here we are in late December, and Mack Brown has found a way to gut out yet another 10 win season. I am impressed. He found a way to win 10 games with a mediocre to decent team. Despite having a horrible defense, we found a way to beat explosive offenses in Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, and Arizona State. We looked respectable against OU. When you're so dependent on the offense carrying a team, there are going to be bad losses like K-state and A&M. But we bounced back, and then some.

Based off of this solid defensive performance, I'd like to see what this team can do next year when we don't have to worry about the vets that let us down. I imagine that Chiles will be used way more consistently in the offense, as a QB, RB, and WR. The defense should be much better. We do have a harder schedule, and the conference is better overall, but a good defense compounded with our high powered offense will let us go places.

Congrats to you Mack Brown. You deserve it.
