I’ll take him seriously when he gives a similar hot take for coaches who leave for other jobs before a bowl game. Somehow, I get the feeling Mack’s all in on Pruitt coaching the ‘Bama defense in the playoffs.
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.
Okay, I wasn’t going to post anymore today, but I simply can’t resist this.
A few days after Alabama won the 2013 national championship, a University of Texas regent and a former regent talked with Nick Saban’s agent about the possibility of the Crimson Tide coach replacing Longhorns coach Mack Brown, The Associated Press has learned.
And this is so Jimmy Sexton:
Whether Sexton initiated the contact with Texas is unclear. He did not return a telephone message from the AP on Thursday. Alabama spokesman Jeff Purinton also declined comment.
Hall said a person he would not identify called him, unsolicited, and proposed an introduction to Sexton.
The only thing missing is a bone to throw Houston Nutt.
Needless to say, it would be a lot of fun to see this story develop legs, especially during the season. But I’m not holding out much hope of that.
Aaron Murray is about to become only the second SEC quarterback with 100 TD throws. “When you think about it, Murray has been here for like five or six years,” Scott-Wesley said. “So you would think he would have more. Just kidding. If I can catch No. 100 or No. 105, I’ll be honored.”

Considering the reactions I saw here from some after the Dawgs lost a close opening game on the road, I’m afraid WordPress’ servers would melt down if Dawgnation had to deal with something like this:
Even Mack Brown isn’t afraid to have a good laugh about Texas’ run defense.
“Kansas State will run the option,” Brown said Monday. “I told our defense this morning, if they didn’t run it, they’ll put it in. My gosh, we’ve got to stop it.”
And remember, unlike a certain head coach I can think of, Mack’s got a national title and another title game appearance in the last decade on his resume. So how bat shit insane do you think it would get?
“I just think that people like Georgia football. I mean, why, when you have an opportunity, on this nice spring day to come to Athens, I know I would be dying to come if I lived anywhere in the state or in a five-hour radius. Get out of the house, get the kids out of the house, come see who the new faces are. I think some of it’s recruiting but I think people enjoy football in Georgia and want to come watch it. I’m glad they do because the impact it has on recruiting, I can’t tell you how many recruits are out there going, oh my gosh, I can’t believe it, I can’t get over it. It’s the norm here. It’s the way it should be…” — Kirby Smart, AJ-C, 4/21/18
