I don't get it. Why are we still "on-the-fence" on this? Why are people talking about some shyster lawyer (Joe Jamail) getting involved, and a potential "showdown" between Mack Brown and Patterson? What is this??!!! THE GAME HAS CLEARLY PASSED HIM BY...that has been demonstrated OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER again this year...last year....in recruiting...player development....assistant coaching hires...etc...etc.
Let's not even get into the 2 CONF CHAMPIONSHIPS IN 16 YEARS. The man just REFUSES to take advantage of opportunities to win his conference...I've never seen anything like it. Even his signature strength, recruiting, has fallen by the wayside due to complacency and improper player evaluation.
The reason Longhorns, who should've easily cruised through the Big XII this year, have 4 losses is the management of the team before the team took its first regular season snap. instead of golfing and rubbing elbows with the rich alums in country clubs over clam chowder, a real coach would've recognized the disaster that was Manny Diaz in early Spring.
If there were any doubts left, he served them up for us in what was arguably the biggest game of his tenure last night...back against the wall...potentially must win to save job...and, typically, he laid an egg faced with the prospect of winning the Big XII outright. 3-3 at halftime...plenty of opportunities to take a two-score lead...nothing happens...the other team's coach makes the right adjustments at halftime...his team doesn't...and gets blown out.
What else is left?...This was the team that was supposed to encapsulate the "end of a rebuilding period" and a return to NC contention. What possible reason/argument could ANYONE have to allow this buffoon to stay? Seriously! This is beyond ludicrous at this point! Just go for God's sake!
