Mack Brown is what he is

I believe it was Sun Tzu who said that the first prerequisite to a victory is the true and objective knowledge of oneself. I've been one of the harshest Mack critics for years now, but after this epic fail I am slowly starting to feel compassion and empathy towards the man.



We knew who Mack was an inept game-day coach who is probably better suited for non-FBS competition. It has been obvious for years that he can't develop players or properly motivate them. The 04-09 run was anchored by two things: Back-to-back game-changing QBs and a tough defensive mentality built by Chizik and Muschamp. He also benefitted greatly from certain players who became leaders and motivators. I think, subconsciously, Mack tried to send us a message with his “it is what it is” gem because HE IS WHAT HE IS!... a life coach, broadcaster, CEO and schmoozer. Now, that there’s no one to carry the weight for him, the results are a natural consequence.



NICK SABAN and MACK BROWN should never be mentioned in the same sentence. Saban is a COACH…a man who builds his program with superb knowledge of the Xs and Os, human psychology, player development and masterful control of all aspects of the program. He’s a guy who has now won TWO NCs with an average QB. Mack is glorified public relations expert.



My advice to Mack: IF YOU WANT TO KEEP COACHING, TEAR THAT RED-SHIRT OFF AND LET SWOOPES LOOSE….IT’S THE ONLY CHANCE YOU HAVE. You know very well you don’t have the ability to fix this without a VY/McCoy up your sleeve. Otherwise, you may be out after this year only to watch Saban take this team to the NC with a FR QB next year…which will cement the perception of your ineptitude even further. Or worse, you will take Texas down a cold dark tunnel with no light at the end of it for the next 20 years. TEAR THAT RED SHIRT OFF AND PRAY TO THE FOOTBALL GODS ONCE AGAIN!
