The Longhorns lost their final game of the regular season, 42-24, to Kansas State. We asked: Does coach Mack Brown have what it takes to return Texas to prominence when he has won one of his last 11 games against AP Top 25 clubs?
Michael Cruz: Mack Brown is a great coach. He did a lot for Texas during his time. Texas needs a motivational coach that will turn this unit around and get them on fire.
Laurie Pruser-Stockman: Yes, playing 16 freshmen has to be taken into account, doesn’t it?
Heron Baggett: Mac wasn’t “given” the quarterbacks, he recruited them. The fact that Mac tried recruiting Johnny Football and RG3 as defensive backs rather than quarterbacks says a lot about the lack
of talent evaluation.
Paul Delacruz: Texas should have joined the PAC 10 and not created the Longhorn Network.
Brian Ortego: Red McCombs stated that “this is a decision that Mack Brown will have to make for himself.” Sounds like Texas will have a new coach next year!
Kevin Murphey: Texas’ problem is that they don’t have the leadership on the field like they did with Colt McCoy, Vince Young, etc. They need someone, anyone, to get on the field and rally the team when we are down by 3 in the fourth quarter with four minutes to go.
