    I think you mean supporters. All you Herman haters need to take a reality pill and realize he's our coach now and Strong is gone.

    In how many different threads?


    I also find it interesting that he detests a coach that won three BCS games and a National Title at Texas, lol. Doesn't make much sense

    I think it is too soon to bring back Mack for that kind of role. He is still way too polarizing of a figure to our fan base. I think Del Conte has misjudged this one in his desire to have Mack as a fundraising asset. Del Conte needs to keep Mack's role to trotting him out to the blue hairs for fundraising for a bit longer.

    Mack Brown record at Texas by year,9-3,9-5,9-3,11-2,11-2,10-3,11-1,13-0,10-3,12-1,13-1,5-7,8-5,.9-4. I have not seen those records since he left and it would not hurt to listen to what the man has to say.In fact,if I was a coach at Texas I would be glad to listen.

    Why do you conveniently skip past all of Coach Brown's success and dwell on nothing but the negative? Three BCS wins, multiple bowl wins, a national championship and played for another. To hear you tell it, he was the worst coach it UT history. :rolleyes:

    All y'all keep on this CS stuff..that guys died and gone to me, I had my opinion and it was told.


    MB was a good coach when he started and up until the last yes and he dropped off or he would still be here,i challenge anyone of you to tell me that he did not lay it down the last year's, left us with out the players and in a hard. Way or we would not be here now the way we are.their a lot that like him and more that don't because of the ending of his tenure. So CS has nothing to do with this, you better hope Herman wins as I do or we be put back another 5yrs

    I’ve been a Herman critic, but I have to say he has a lot of momuitem building with the bowl win and stud recruiting class, and Orlando elected to stay. All things are major positives goimg in to year 2. Having said that though. With the decssion to keep Beck, and apperentl decssion thus far not to call plays himself does make week 1 agsinst Maryland critically important for Herman. Lay another egg or a win, but no improvement on offense to speak of, and I think even some of the Herman supporters are going to get restless.

    Again, all you do is focus on Coach Brown's last few years. Did he get complacent towards the end? Yes. The good he did for the program by far outweighs the negative, and he put Texas back on the map and made the program relevant in the college football scene and won a national championship! Good grief. Let it go, man.

    I could have sworn I enjoyed watching UT consistently be one of the top teams in the country year after year when Brown was coach, but I guess that didn't happen because he didn't get another head coaching job after he left Texas.

    Mack did all he could to sabotage CS on his way out. Some of us aren't ready to forgive him for that. If Mack hadn't don't that then I'd be all for bringing him back in some capacity.

    The really unfortunate thing is, Mack sabotaged the hiring of Nick Saban at Texas. :(

    Plus after preaching, 'commit to the school not the coach' for years he told the players he help them find new schools once he was the one on the way out.

    I cannot find fault with that since he knew the players and families and had a commitment to them.Most staff changes are also about players.

    Are you sure Saban was not just using Texas as a more "money Grab Contract" at Alabama???

    I heard from a very reliable source that Saban was coming to Texas, had verbally agreed to a contract and had started assembling his staff. Mack drug his feet and drug his feet about retiring and Saban got impatient and said, screw it, I'll stay at Alabama. He got a big raise as a result of the flirtation with Texas, which was much more than flirtation.

    nope
    I have not heard that report but If Saban really wanted the job,he could have waited.As for Mack,he lost the National Championship to Alabama and most Texas fans feel it was the loss of Colt.Then,you are going to replace him at Texas with Saban and my guess the two do not send Christmas cards and maybe the thought of losing the National Championship and then your job was too much for Mack to handle and not deserved based on his overall record.He may not agree on how the teams of the deep south Sec do business.

    Honest question: What did he do to sabotage Strong? I know facilities needed upgrading, but I guess maybe I just don't remember. With respect to Mack Brown, it seems like the Muschamp "Head Coach in waiting" thing also contributed to some of Mack's late issues.

    The story goes that Mack told Strong to let the coaches and staff go except for Bruce Chambers and that Chris Plonsky was the go to person in the AD for whatever he needed.

    I would think most new head coaches would like to pick their own staff with coaches they know and have worked with in the past.

    those last two teams were not very talented. he went 8-5 and 9-4. how is that quitting? he missed on the qb position and misjudged the difficulty and necessity of changing offenses.

    i want to say this again... he went 9-4 with case mccoy as his starting qb. 8-5 with david ash as a freshman.

    the change in offense is because he let a game get to him too much. OUR COACH CARED TOO MUCH!!! i will take that any day

    Every player brought a gun in the locker room? Out of the 15 years Mack coached at UT I don't remember it being run like a Miami Hurricanes team. I think you're picking things to make Mack out to be some POS coach. Did he have some faults sure but the way you talk about Mack it makes it sound like he was Switzer or Jimmy Johnson coaching at OU or Miami. FBH the reason you're pissed about the way we play now is due to Mack giving us a winning product for most of his coaching career here. I wonder if we had a forum before Mack if you'd hate all those coaches before him and after DKR.

    You got Hate mixed up with Dislike, I hate no one, the front end of his Tenure no one can fault, the back end he sorta forgot about Football, he was not prepared for the second Bama game with no backup QB like he was all the season, gonna start Swoops as that's all he had besides Heard and we seen how that turned out

    FBH it sounds more like hate with the way you go on about Mack. If you go back to all your statements about Mack it all reads as if you don't want him around the program because he destroyed it. "Dislike" what does that mean? You've never mentioned anything positive about how he built the program back up or given him props it's always been about how he stopped caring and left this program in shambles. If you just 'disliked" him there would be some praise and then somethings you don't care for but all of it has been "get him outta here" kind of post. Everyone has their opinions on Mack but no one can take away what he did for this program! It's all facts backed by numbers and if you're going to let a couple years make you forget the number of winning seasons and two NC appearances one of them being arguably the best NC in history well good luck. You're pretty hard to keep happy.

    Well, if you "dislike" Mack Brown, how do you feel about Fred Akers, David McWilliams, John Mackovic and Charlie Strong? None of those coaches came close to winning a championship and all were fired for having losing records, and none of them came close to the success that Mack Brown had at Texas.

    Dude, you take the Mack Brown era out and since 1975, where does that leave you? Mack Brown did extraordinarily well.
