Joe Jamail Discusses Mack Brown, Presient Powers in Texas Monthly

Interesting read in Texas Monthly about the ongoing saga at the University of Texas, both in the athletics department as well as the President's office. It doesn't offer too much new information, but there are several interesting quotes from Joe Jamail throughout, including this great anecdote.

"When Frank Broyles coached at Arkansas, he used to have a golf tournament each year for all the Southwest Conference coaches. Darrell asked me and Willie [Nelson] to go with him one time—not to play, but just to be together. Afterward, Darrell brought Willie out to pick a few songs for everybody. At some point Willie hit a wrong note or something, and he said, ‘Ah, f— it.’ The old Baylor coach Grant Teaff was there, and he stood up and said, ‘This is a Christian group here. We’ve brought our wives. And we don’t appreciate that kind of language.’ Willie didn’t miss a beat. He started another song and sang:

Jesus was a Baylor Bear

But Jesus wouldn’t cut his hair

His helmet didn’t fit

But Jesus didn’t give a shit

’Cause Jesus was a Baylor Bear

"And then we got up and got the hell out of there."

Oh, by the way this is what Jamail had to say about "people on the internet" that want Mack fired.

Jamail said over the phone the morning after the Tech game. "I don’t know who the hell those f—ing crybabies on the Internet are. Could be Aggies or the Taliban, for all I know. Or f—ing al Qaeda. Because every real UT fan is proud of this team and the way they’ve turned their season around."

Guess that means he's not a fan of BON, I guess.
