Dan Jenkins on Mack Brown and Texas: [ESPN]

I know Mack, and he’s a nice guy. I never thought he was a great coach. He’d have been gone sooner if it hadn’t been for Vince Young. Vince gave him a lot of years. It’s like our guy here (TCU head coach Gary Patterson) said, everyone thinks Texas is the greatest job in the world, but it’s not. The greatest job in the world is OU, because you’re isolated. You got no media to deal with. Down there in Austin, you got five million bosses. And the Joe Jamails and Red McCombses and Tex Moncriefs -- the big-money guys -- they’ll give you a while, but if you don’t give them what they want, you’re gone. (Bob) Stoops? He hasn't won a national championship since 2000 -- fourteen years ago. And he’s still there. See, he wins just enough. You know, 9-3, that sort of thing. 9-3 is always what coulda happened.
