"According to Rivals.com’s comprehensive team recruiting rankings, Brown hasn’t brought in a class ranked lower than No. 20 since 2002, and seven of these hauls have been Top 5 rated groups.
Brown’s last four classes at Texas have been rated No. 5 (2009), No. 3 (2010), No. 3 (2011) and No. 2 (2012).
When you put the Longhorns’ wins, losses, scores and other stats in front of this striking backdrop, it becomes almost impossible not to question the quality of coaching.
And the coaching buck at the University of Texas stops with Mack Brown—not Manny Diaz, not Bryan Harsin and no, not Major Applewhite.
Simply put, the Longhorns 17-14 record since 2010 might be the most criminal misuse of talent in the history of major college football.
Don’t think so?
Well, Alabama has recruited No. 1, No. 5, No. 1 and No. 1 classes from 2009-12, respectively, and their record since 2010 is 28-4, which includes a national championship.
Oregon’s recruiting numbers are No. 32, No. 13, No. 9 and No. 16 over the same four years and they’ve gone 30-3 since 2010 and won back-to-back Pac-12 championships.
