So....it's the end of yet another season and Texas has had yet another disappointing year. I think most people wonder just how in the hell a program like UT can underachieve as much as they do. Well, Mack Brown has changed coordinators and assistant coaches a ton, signed top classes year after years, and nothing seems to work. The one NC appearance they had since Vince Young was quickly thwarted by an Alabama team in 2009. Since then they have gone 5-7, 8-5, and what looks like 8-5 or 9-4 this year. When you strike out year after year after year on QB's, it's pretty easy to be that bad. Not only have they struck out, but check out the guys they let get out of state or to other programs. They usually get first pick instate but their evaluating has been abysmal. They have let countless first round picks and Heisman finalists leave. If they sign one of these guys every 3 years they are fine. But Mack has completely struck out on QB's. Like, FSU home game against a top 10 team striking out. It's terrible. Check this out:
4* Jevan Snead- Texas
3* Sherrod Harris- Texas
5* Matthew Stafford- UGA
3* Andy Dalton- TCU
3* Christian Ponder- FSU
3* Greg McElroy- Bama
3* GJ Kinne- Texas
5* Ryan Mallett- Michigan/Arkansas
3* Ryan Tannehill- Texas A&M
No QB taken for UT
4* Andrew Luck- Stanford
3* Robert Griffin 3- Baylor
5* Garrett Gilbert- Texas
4* Connor Wood- Texas
3* Case McCoy- Texas
5* Cam Newton- AU (JUCO)
4* James Franklin- Missouri
3* David Ash- Texas
3* Johnny Manzell- Texas A&M
2* Chuckie Keeton- Utah State

The only reason Mack is still here is because of Vince. Vince basically saved Mack's job.

Griffin and Luck really killed hurts. Like really hurts. Like, kicked in the nuts with a spur hurts.

mack brown is the new bobby bowden minus the success earlier in his career. underacheiving greatly with massive amounts of talent. running his program into the ground
FSU Ambassador to the masses
One school that has a lower winning percentage than Mack Brown during his tenure is Alabama. I know, with all of their advantages. Go figure.
There comes a time in a mans life where he cannot do the things he used to do at the same level. They need to call Will Muschamp
Why doesn't UT just can him? What's the deal with that? It's obvious he's done, just like Lane Kiffin. Why would blue blood schools chose to keep underachieving and losing with these guys. UT and USCw recruit themselves. They will pull top 5 classes regardless of who is HC so why not get a winner in there?
Again, UT has recruited poor QB's in '13. They thought Swoopes was the second coming of VY and he probably won't even play QB and if he does, good luck on that one. Sucks!!! Saje with that Jerrad Heard kid next year. Again they think they're getting VY, but the kid is overrated. If they wanted a good dual threat they should've gone for that Barrett kid who went to OSU. I guess he wasn't tall enough and he wasn't an exact clone of VY....physically that is.
Why didn't they go for Cody Thomas? I think that kid will kill it at OU. Oh well. Sucks for UT and USC. Coaching is destroying their programs.
Ridiculous post. We were under NCAA sanctions and had three bad coaches in a row that led to us having several bad seasons. Not the same as having a mediocre coach for a long time. We also took the steps to correct our problems.
Ha, this mediocre coach just handed you your ass.
As in, has done better with his program than you have with yours. There are always ups and downs in programs. You guys are firing on all cylinders now though. You have to admire FSU for their string of top 5 finishes, despite all of the wide lefts. That said, Texas is ready for a new head coach.
I don't even know what to say to this.

That list of QB's to come out of Texas over the last few years is astonishing.
Dumbarse post of the week.. And it's not even close.
Talk about homerism at it's finest.
You're hilarious, keep posting
Danielle Hunter, Jamario Rasco, Anthony FREAK Johnson.. DL wrecking crew of 2013.
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
Talk to me in 9 years. You did manage to improve your record against Texas to 1-9. It took a hurt QB and no back up, but you should take them anyway you can.
Didn't we play you back when you had Saban instead of that idiot Miles. Remind me of the outcome.
lol, where did that number come from?
Bama was 1 game from playing for the NC in 08, won it in 09, won it again in 11, and is one game away from playing for it all again this year. Are you sure you want to have this conversation? FYI, trolling only works when you can make a valid point that manages to piss people off. All you are doing is looking like a dumbass.
i believe MB became their coach in 98
Lol, that game was almost a decade ago. Texas has been irrelevant for almost 5 years and you keep making an arse of yourself with your idiotic posts. If all you have is a game 9-10 years ago, more power to you. LSU would dump all over your crappy team and crappier coach.
Anyways, keep up with your idiotic posts
