Give Coach Brown Respect

It might be time for a regime change. But it might not. The people that actually make that call will do so. Either way, I'll support and cheer the Longhorns, coaches and players alike.

What I won't support is disrespecting a veteran coach, who is a gentleman and a winner and has conducted himself as such throughout his career. People say he ought to be fired if he doesn't perform according to his job expectations like they would be, trying to compare their average jobs to being the head football coach at Texas. When someone invests his life in a job as Coach Brown has for so many years, and brings nearly unparalleled success while doing so, and receives a nearly unparalleled financial investment from his job for doing so, all the while maintaining a high level of professionalism and integrity, it ought to be very difficult to part with such a man. Eventually, it would happen, but ideally at an agreed-upon time, and, at the very least, with an overwhelming sense of appreciation for a job well done. I'm not talking about whether you think Coach Brown ought to stay or go, I'm talking about giving him his just dues. Texas is a classy state, UT is a classy school, and the fans ought to follow suit.

Texas has benefited richly from employing Mack Brown. If we're going to usher him out, as seems to be the cry of the cyber-masses, then let's do it with class, thanking him for the good times and for keeping the rough patches to a minimum. He's spoiled us, but let's try not to act spoiled. It's unbecoming.
