Someone needs to take responsibility.
Mack Brown is reevaluating his coaches and players, but he also needs to take a look in the mirror.
Throughout the season, he always took ownership for the losses, but he didn't always make changes.
There was a major lack of accountability on offense all year long. Brown lets offensive coordinator Greg Davis handle all substitutions, but there were times when Brown should have stepped in and made the decisions.
So, what's the line on a Greg Davis firing?
What's the betting line that Mack Brown fires Greg Davis?
Actually, I don't think Vegas has set a Greg Davis line. Right now, it's a coin flip, a 50-50 proposition. Mack Brown wants to fire Davis, his longtime offensive coordinator and would like to bring him back for another year. But is changing only position coaches enough after the meltdown that Texas experienced this season? And what about another major change for Garrett Gilbert?
Rest easy, people. The NCAA is in charge and they will fix everything.
And then there were three. The Buffs are looking for their new head coach.
John Mackovic has some advice for college football coaches.
As the college football season winds down with its conference championship and rivalry games, there is something that has been bothering me all year. The actions of coaches on the sidelines have increasingly become a detriment to the game. It did not start in 2010 but has been getting progressively worse for the past five seasons. Foul language is one thing and when the television cameras train themselves on some coaches there should be a censor strip put over the lens to preclude reading lips.
Coaches challenging the call of the referee is nothing new, but lately some of the games look more like baseball with coaches streaming onto the field to voice their objections. The only thing missing is the nose-to-nose verbal insults, but the four-letter words are right there for the viewing audience. What a great example for the young men on the sideline.
Kansas almost went to the Big East.
At the height of conference realignment talks last year, there was real concern that Texas (and most of the other Big XII South schools) would flee the conference for -- pardon the pun -- greener pastures, leaving the schools up north wondering what their next move would be.
Fortunately, as Kansas basketball coach Bill Self told listeners on his weekly radio show yesterday, his Jayhawks' AQ status was never in doubt -- and nor was that of Missouri, KSU, and ISU. When asked about TCU and its move to the Big East, Self said that if the Big 12 folded, those schools would have been offered a spot in the Big East.
Some team did not impress Bill Byrne.
A&M athletic director Bill Byrne offered this of A&M’s 24-17 victory a week ago over rival Texas in Austin in his weekly online address:
“I thought the game was played the way football was meant to be played, without the cheap shots or late hits we’d experienced a few weeks earlier.”
Two weeks before the UT game, the Aggies pulled out a hotly contested 42-30 victory at Baylor that had questionable calls (and no-calls) on both sides by the officials. Byrne did not specify to which game he was referring.
Texas Tech basketball coach Pat Knight absolutely, positively did not call Scott Drew a cheat and a liar. He was just talking in a hypothetical sense.
Knight became characteristically animated on Tuesday when a reporter asked about his relationship with Oral Roberts coach Scott Sutton. Sutton and Knight have known each other since childhood, and Knight wanted to convey that what really stinks about scheduling a game against a good friend is that someone has to lose.
He said he’d much rather beat a coach who lies and cheats than one who he respects. He never named names.
Nebraska won a basketball game. It is true. I swear.
The Nebraska junior guard hadn't made one of those since before the Huskers' three-game swing in Puerto Rico.
And wouldn't you know it? He sank another one the next time down the court.
Those consecutive three-pointers were part of a 16-0 run that broke open a close game in Nebraska's 76-57 victory against Jackson State at the Devaney Sports Center.
Don't ever tell KU forward Thomas Robinson he can't shoot.
Too bad. The Sooners lost.
BDR likes versatile, smart women. This is my feel good story of the day.
The Cornhuskers have a plan.
"I've always believed this: You have to tweak yourself to manage wins. We've been able to do that. Sometimes it hasn't been romantic or pretty, but we've found a way to do it."
And sometimes finding a way means having two sets of plans. So it is this week as Nebraska prepares to meet Oklahoma on Saturday.
Don't underestimate the Cornhusker defense.
Nebraska got their trophy, in case anyone actually cares.
And y'all think I have issues with the Cornhuskers? This woman has me beat by a mile.
I should take her to lunch.
Sing along! You know the words. (Or feel free to make up your own and share below.)
