They were a tip here or there from beating WVU last week. This week, no excuses, except for Manny's Diaz's defense is not tackling at all. On FB I've proposed they put Bevo on the DL...would clog up the rushing lanes.

I don't get the calls for UT ruining the Big 12, every college in the Big 12 continually voted for the uneven revenue sharing model every time it came to a vote. Also the conference as a whole should've been able to get a network together or a good TV deal, which they did last year finally.

In terms of the Big 12 right now it probably has the most quality depth of any conference outside the SEC.

With OU likely headed to the win and could be vaulted back into the top 10. It'd have 3 teams in the top 10. Even with A&M and Mizzou leaving the conference got two equally good programs in WVU and TCU.

The two biggest front runners in the Hesiman are from the Big 12 right now in Geno Smith and Colin Klein.

This UT defense is horrible. It's 2010 Texans/Frank Bush bad. I quit watching it when OU scored that 95 yard run, I knew right then that UT defense was going to do jack today. It is starting to look like a change needs to be made, there is no excuse for Texas to be this bad with the supposedly great recruiting classes they have.

Why would he be on the hot seat? He should have been fired after he was the biggest under achiever in the Applewhite/Simms days. I used to get so fired up over these types of losses, but I just expect them with Mack Brown.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, he is a great recruiter. We all know that, but as a game day coach, he has never scared anyone and Oklahoma fans have always wanted Mack and Greg Davis there for a reason. When your main rival doesn't want your coach to go anywhere, it's usually pretty obvious why.

Mack will coach Texas as long as he wants unfortunately. I was forced to accept that many years ago.

Mack will be forced to retire by the bigwigs. He's already used up the "changing coordinators" bit and now it's just on him.

They may yet lose to Baylor, Tech and/or TCU.

Shouldn't any coach at Texas be a good recruiter based on the fact that you coach at the University of Texas?

I don't know a whole lot of college football history but I would of thought certain schools would recruit well just because of who they are?

I would love for that to be true, but you're way off. Mack is a god at UT for some reason, and the athletic department cherishes the guy. Mack's been the biggest joke of a game day coach in college for like 12 years. He was going to walk when they first tried to fire Greg Davis before VY got there and Mack was going to walk until VY saved their jobs. VY didn't play like the freak he was in college until he was left alone and wasn't really coached. That ought to tell you a lot. The Horns couldn't go anywhere after VY left until Muschamp got there and got that entire team playing with intensity and with a chip on their shoulder. It was very similar to how the Texans under achieved and Wade came in and changed things. It was no surprise that the Longhorns have been garbage still since Muschamp left. I couldn't wait to see Muschamp as their next HC, but then Meyer had to leave Florida for the 10th time and Florida got him away from us.

Mack will coach at Texas as long as he wants.

No, it isn't that simple. If it was, Mackovich would have done that and he didn't. Mack can recruit like a MOFO. But yeah, at this point as long as Texas hired a big name HC pretty much any big name HC could recruit fairly easily there. Mack Brown is the perfect guy to lead the athletic department and that is where he has always belonged, but if he wants to coach, they're not going to push him out. Maybe if he stinks for another two seasons, but that is a ways away.

Default Re: Texas Longhorns Football - 2012

The first half played by Texas might just be the worst collective effort by a football team that I have ever seen at any level. The second half was atrocious as well. This was a complete meltdown by the Texas Longhorns, especially following a nice win against Oklahoma State, and a competitive showing against #5 West Virginia last week. And now with two conference losses, the Longhorns appear to be out of the running for any of the top bowl games. What a debacle.

But how much fun for all the UT haters in our midst. You guys enjoy this one. The Texas Longhorns will return. Unfortunately, I can't even pretend to know exactly when.

THis last part is pretty funny Mojo. It sounds to me like you don't allow yourself to get so emotionally invested into the Horns anymore like I used to. I always expect this kind of thing at any moment with Mack at the helm, so luckily it doesn't chap my hide the way it used to. The only time it does is when everything is going so well like it was when Muschamp was here and Mack's ineptitude screws it up. A lot of people over looked how bad Mack Brown was in that Big 12 championship game a few years ago in McCoy's last season here where Mack almost completely blew the game at the end with the worst clock management I had ever seen in my life. It put the kicker in the worst "clutch" type of situation and I was so happy that the poor kid didn't blow it, but I wouldn't have blamed him if he did. Mack is awful. Always has been. I always have wondered how many trophies and Big 12 championships the Horns would have if Stoops and Mack were swapped around?
