Daily Round Up: Monday, December 10, 2012

Take the most important question in the win-now business of coaching -- What have you done for me lately? -- cut the last word, and you know what Texas thinks of Mack Brown. The Longhorns aren’t winning like they want to. They are still a step away from where Brown took them in his first 12 years. But university president Bill Powers and athletic director DeLoss Dodds remember those years. They appreciate how Brown has worn the burnt orange, and how he actually reads the NCAA Manual. Texas has the money to afford to act on principle. And that’s not as cynical as it sounds. [ESPN]
