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.

Two words: Jimmy Sexton

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.

How ballistic would our fan base be if Mack Brown were the head coach?

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.”

Haw, haw!

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?

Would you buy a used program from this man?

Mack Brown’s supposed to be a good salesman, but judging from this comment, I’d say he’s losing his touch:

Brown also made this plea to obviously angry Texas fans: “Keep coming. … Forget the coaches, come for the kids.”

I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t exactly make me want to whip my wallet out.

Tight, tighter, tightest

We haven’t had a reader poll in a while.  Here’s an easy one:  which coach has the tightest sphincter in college football right now?  I’ll give you a choice of three.

  • Mack Brown, who’s in full “remain calm, all is well” mode after firing his defensive coordinator two games into the season;
  • Junior, who announced his latest starting quarterback decision with one of the more awkward videos you’ll see; or
  • Boom, who’s elected after Florida’s embarrassing loss to Miami to keep his coaching staff and players away from the media.

Remember, there are no wrong answers here.

Feel free to explain yourselves in the comments.
