    Props to Colt. That is a great honor, and he was an awsome college QB.


    He successfully camoflouged Mack and Greg's flaws as coaches for two seasons.

    I wouldn't say camoflauged, more like compensated, especially last year when him and Shipley were the offense.

    I don't mind Mack as a HC, he is what he is, lights out recruiter and a mediocre head coach.

    Davis....well I'm sure youand I both could go on for pages about his ineptitude as an OC.

    I'm just really hoping Muschamp sticks around long enough to become the HC.

    Please get rid of Greg Davis, only the 8th year in a row I have made this my request.

    Great job Colt!

    From what a lot about what I read is that Davis just runs the offense the way that Mack wants him to. I hear from some that Davis would like to be a lot more aggressive, but Mack is the guy that wants to be so conservative and the guy who wants to run the ball so much now. I'll never like Mack as a coach. He's cost Texas National Championship bids in the past. VY camoflouged his ineptitude as well and it wasn't until Muschamp came that this team finally developed a mean attitude. Sadly though, Muschamp is gone after this season most likely.

    I would not be surprised if Mack hands it up after next year. He would then slide into AD and Muschamp slides into the Head Coach/DEf Coach and Major climbs into the Offensive coordinator spot.

    Man, that would be a dream come true for me, but sadly I don't see Mack retiring from coaching any time soon. He still seems pretty energetic and hasn't given any type of time table as to when he'll retire. I think he'll keep coaching for a while honestly. Whenever he does go though, GD is right there with him. UT was going to fire GD many years ago and Mack said that he would quit if GD was fired. That is his main man and his puppet. GD will always be here as long as Mack is.

    I'd love to see Mack as the AD though. That's a position that he's perfect for. He's just not a good X's and O's coach and never has been. He's a great recruiter, but he has zero intensity and acts more like a grandfather to his players than he does as a hard nosed coach.

    I love Will Muschamp though. He's everything I like about a coach. He's smart, he's fiery, and his players love to play for him. He makes you energetic and excited as a fan. If Mack does not go this year, than Muschamp does unfortunately.

    This won't be a good year for Mack and I think he knows it. I think next year they challenge and he slides over after a great season. I don't think he wants to leave on a sour year like this one.

    Plus, the man will be 60 before the first game next year. I can see him shifting over.

    So who was the DB that wore #12 while he was there with McCoy? Was it Earl Thomas? Anyway, looks like he's getting his number retired too! :D

    McCoy will join Earl Campbell (No. 20), Bobby Layne (11), Tommy Nobis (60), Ricky Williams (34) and Vince Young (10) as the six football players who've had their number retired.

    Colt McCoy in the same conversation with those guys ?
    No wait, is this April 1st ? It's a joke, right ?

    Yeah he is only the winningest QB in college history.

    UT - Most Total Touchdowns, Career: 102
    UT - Most Touchdown Passes, Single Season: 34
    UT - Most Touchdown Passes, Game: 6

    NCAA - Highest Single Season completion percentage: 76.7%
    NCAA - Most wins by a starting quarterback in NCAA Division I history with 45.
    NCAA Colt McCoy is the only quarterback in college football history to have at least ten wins per season during all four seasons.

    Interesting facts here. People do forget that he led a team that only lost one game in two years which was on a last play of the game against TT where Colt had just led his team down the field to take the lead and his defense gave it away. The Bama game, he did not play in so that doesn't even count. Colt was amazing when you consider how bad GD's scheme and play calling is. He's easily up there with names like Layne, Ricky Williams, James Street, and VY.

    VY singlehandedly whips USC for the national title game back in 2006 in what many consider the greatest collegiate football game ever player while McCoy whimps out against 'Bama after one series in the most important game of his life. And you consider that "right there" ? You must be thinking of some of McCoys stalwart performances against those gridiron powerhouses like the Baylor Bears & the Iowa State Cyclones ?

    I can never tell if someone is being sarcastic on message boards.

    It is difficult, but I can tell if they are being a jack ass.
