Former Texas Longhorns head coach Mack Brown, who’s now leading the North Carolina Tar Heels, hopped on the airwaves with Paul Finebaum earlier this week to talk Texas’ move to the SEC. In particular, they spoke of the power play the move represents for the future.

“I would think, just in listening to AD’s across the country and the presidents, all of these moves are about money and securing your place at the highest level of sports long-term,” Brown said, according to 247Sports. “And obviously most of that is TV money. And also the better schedule that you have the more enticing it is for season ticket sales and fans, but you’ve gotta win. I think that’s what all of this comes down to. If you don’t win, regardless of whether you’re Texas or Oklahoma or Ole Miss or North Carolina or Clemson, it doesn’t work. Because I’ve tried it both ways and people like it better if you win.”
