Arkansas picks up Chris Peterson as head coach, Texas still with Mack??

Many Texas fans have held out hope that offensive master Chris Peterson would be the next head coach in burnt orange.

Well, once again, the dithering by Mack and Belmont have cost us a golden opportunity to inject new life into the program.

Arkansas to name Peterson head coach'

We've seen this before. Our "head coach in waiting," Muschamp was snapped up by Florida, where he already has produced superior results to Mack's last three seasons and is tied up until 2017.

Meanwhile, the smoke signals from the president's tower and Deloss' office seem to indicate no change in the near future.

Why has this become acceptable? How many more great candidates will be taken off the market by lesser universities before Texas decides to make this much-needed change?

For now, all we know is this: forget watching football on a burnt-orange field. Peterson is gone.
