What do you call dragging Mac Brown's job status through the press for a couple of months? The President and the AD could have called an immediate halt to the speculation had they so desired. Instead, they created controversy where there wouldn't have been any otherwise.

Whaaaaaaat?

You're making Mack Brown out to be a victim?

How about beating Baylor for crying out loud?

When did Texas football fans become so fat and happy? 1 or 2 more years? Of what? The guy should've resigned after last year.

He is a professional, so he doesn't act like this. First off even if Texas did him worse he wouldn't do that, but even if he was low such a move would hurt any future career he would have.

This story shows that Orangebloods.com once again showed why people shouldn't get their news from a fan site. And contrary to what most thought about how this scenario would play out - UT let it be very messy and unpleasant for Mack.

All of this makes the firing of Mike Sherman at A&M (which was poorly done) two years ago look smooth.

I have also thought that Saban's personality would be a poor match for UT. He is not a cheerleader like Mack. I'm sure he deals with big money alumni at Alabama, but I think the equivalent at UT is multiplied. I don't think Saban would deal very well with all the sucking up that occurs around the UT athletic department.
I agree with this...if Mack was 4-8 that's a different story. The UT admin dept needs to get a hold of themselves and act like a first class organization.

I agree that Mack had the right personality for UT where Saban may not. The UT crew didnt like Mackovic (for being too wine and cheese) even though he won 3 conference titles. His last year...not so good w Route 66. Find the leaks to OB.com...

Ha! Ha! He screwed them out of offering Saban and now he gives them the finger. What's going on down on Austin?
