Mack Brown, advisor

You gotta hand it to ol’ Mack.  He’s retired as head coach, but is still drawing a paycheck from the school as a special advisor to the president.  But the prez isn’t the only one getting friendly advice.

Those facts make the conversation between four-star safety recruit John Bonney — a long-time Texas commitment — and Houston ABC station KTRK all the more potentially awkward. In this video, Bonney says that Brown told recruits visiting during the same weekend Brown resigned they should “look around” before signing with the Longhorns…

The complete quote from Bonney:

I was at my official visit when Mack Brown resigned and he told us to go look around. [He said] he’ll even talk to other coaches for you and everything because he really just wanted the best for us as players.

That’s right nice of the man.  Although I doubt Charlie Strong agrees.

Boy, imagine what Mack would be telling the kids if he wasn’t on the UT payroll.

“There aren’t too many people crazy enough to do what I did.”

This may be the ultimate haves vs. have-nots story (for the moment, anyway) – Miami of Ohio’s new head coach took a $200,000 a year pay cut from his coordinator’s position when he accepted the job.

There’s no way the mid-majors can keep up with the Joneses.

It’s national signing week. Time to freak out!

After grazing over this, this and this – all involving Georgia prospects – in just the last fifteen minutes, I continue to be amazed by the capacity of my fellow man to get caught up in the uncertainty of the teenage mind.

And to think some of you spend good money to follow this stuff.

And this would be the total absence of glee.
