Rich is the new poor.

“As president of the American Football Coaches Association this year, I’ve been very involved with Coach Teaff and the American Football Coaches Association board, in looking at rules, potential rules changes, and size of staff is one that has been very discussed because Alabama has had so much success, and their staff has been bigger than any of the other staffs in college football.”

“So there was a thought at the board level of the American Football Coaches Association that, for the first time, along with the NCAA, maybe there should be a cap or a number to make it more fair across the board.”

If you’re thinking that’s a quote from a guy who’s the head coach at an SEC school with decent but not incredible financial resources, or maybe a mid-major program that simply has no chance of keeping up… well, you’re way off.

Mack Brown said that.  That would be this Mack Brown.

Despite his call for a cap on support staff, Brown made several new additions to his own support staff this offseason, including hiring away a member of Saban’s staff at Alabama.

“What we did is we were looking at ways to improve our staff,” Brown said. “So we brought in a recruiting coordinator from Alabama named Patrick Suddes, and he’s done a tremendous job for us.”

Next on Mack’s agenda is a rule limiting the number of hours a head coach can spend thinking about his job.  Because Saban is obsessed and maybe there should be a cap or a number to make it more fair across the board.

  1. John Denver is full of shit...

    Mack Brown wants social justice!

  2. Go Dawgs!

    Wonder if Mack would be as worried about it if the Longhorn Network was on basic cable in every American household.

    Mack Brown has never been confused with Einstein.

  4. I think Harrison Bergeron heads that organization.

    Even Nick thinks that’s funny. He could easily circumvent that one; however, because unlike Mack, Nick knows the faster you go, the slower time moves.

    Coach Brown….Greg McGarity on line one.

    If staffing is a problem, perhaps Texas should shift some people over from the Longhorn Network.— Cecil Hurt (@CecilHurt) July 23, 2013

    Mack’s right. Which Mack Brown, though?

    Gotta believe Texas has THE most advantages of any school in the nation when it comes to football. Perhaps if Brown quit mailing it in he’d enjoy more success. Maybe I’m being too rough on him ’cause he does have a mncc after all. But the dust on that glass trophy has got to be getting thick.

      Westy, don’t you think that Bama has even more advantages? For that matter, every Catholic kid in America who is any good wants to go to ND, always has. If Texas has advantages it really only is in Texas and since aTm is now in the SEC even that has been watered down.

        Mayor I agree Bama has more advantages. Taxas has to learn how to juice and fix the cops without getting caught.

          All hell breaks loose when Alabama loses a game. You have to think about the greater good here.
