    I still think Brown steps down at the end of this season.
    Good for him if he is allowed to finish it and does so quite strongly(except versus my team).

    Briles/Saban and other top candidates will be the targets and we'll see what happens.

    UH's coach might get a gig at a lower tier spot in the Big 12 like KState whenever Snyder retires again or Kansas when Wies is fired but he isn't walking into a Texas job.

    Aik: I am going to feel reallllly sorry for you if/when Briles leaves.
    Baylor is going to lose Seastrunk to the NFL, 3 starting OL to graduation, Reese at WR to graduation....
    That's a ton and Bryce Petty may very well also opt for the NFL.
    For a guy who has looked ahead at hsi career every step of the way the logical thing for him is to take the highest paying, most high profile job he can after this season.
    Baylor would then be wise to keep Kendal and as much of the current program in place as they can.
    But Briles isn't leaving before the end of the season and Baylor 'can' make this one special.

    I appreciate your concern but Baylor is a very deep team and will be special for many years to come. Quietly only Alabama has produced more first round picks than Art Briles' Baylor Bears abs sending more pros to star at the next level is only going to amplify the program.

    Every year Baylor replaces quarterbacks, wideouts and runningbacks, and as a team they only get better.

    As for Kendal, he's but 30 years old, but when his dad retires he will likely be in the running to be the next in line.

    I have a hard time believing this is true. I guess I'd have to see the numbers here. There is no way that Baylor has produced more 1st round picks then any other program, except Alabama. No way.

    Matter of fact, I doubt that Alabama is even number 1 in this are. I'd be willing to bet that Ohio State, USC, Miami and Notre Dame are all higher on that list then Bama. Are you trying to say the Baylor has produced more in a certain period of time and I just don't understand the context here?

    1. USC
    2. Ohio State
    3. Notre Dame
    4. Miami
    5. Alabama
    6. Florida
    7. Oklahoma
    8. Tennessee
    9. Texas
    10. Michigan
    11. Florida State
    12. Penn State
    13. LSU
    14. Nebraska
    15. Michigan State
    16. UCLA
    17. Auburn
    18. Georgia
    19. Texas A&M
    20. Wisconsin

    Baylor also didn't make the to 20 in # of drafted players in the NFL.

    Actually, if I am not mistaken, OU, Vols and Horns are all tied with 43 each but yeah, Baylor has not yet cracked the top 20, according to publications.

    Right now Briles is at the forefront for coach of the year as well.

    Here's his opinion of his team's ability to compete for recruits, lest anyone think he's tempted to go elsewhere to obtain who he wants:
    "Every recruit, we're going head-to-head with Texas A&M and Texas," Briles said. "They're hard to beat, but we're getting hard to beat, too. We're an attractive product."


    College football mid-season: Baylor's Art Briles is coach of the year.

    And a link to the fact only Bama and USC have produced more first rounders since Brlles came to Baylor, the link above makes you search for the article. This one should be direct.

    http://www2.baylor.edu/baylorproud/...ars-five-nfl-first-round-picks-in-four-years/

    And some scouts think Baylor may produce as many as four first round picks this coming April.

    Actually, you said only Alabama has produced more then Art Briles Baylor Bears. Now, that doesn't actually say under Briles but fair enough. That's why I asked if I was not understanding something. I can re-read the post all day but it can still be interpreted as Baylor having produce more #1s. In addition, the article actually says Alabama and USC so technically, that statement you made earlier about ONLY Alabama would seem to be incorrect.

    In fact, USC has produced 10 1st round Picks since 2008

    2008
    Sedrick Ellis
    Keith Rivers
    Sam Baker
    Lawrence Jackson

    2009
    Mark Sanchez
    Brian Cushing
    Clay Matthews

    2011
    Tyron Smith

    2012
    Matt Kalil
    Nick Perry


    Alabama has produced 14 1st round picks since 2008.

    2013
    Dee Millner
    Chance Warmack
    DJ Flucker

    2012
    Trent Richardson
    Mark Barron
    Dre Kirkpatrick
    Dont'a Hightower

    2011
    Marcell Darius
    Julio Jones
    James Carpenter
    Mark Ingram

    2010

    Rolando McLain
    Kareem Jackson

    2009
    Andra Smith


    Since 2008, Baylor has produced 5 1st round picks.

    2012

    RG3
    Kendall Right

    2011

    Phil Taylor
    Danny Watkins

    Has Mack given any indication he even wants to retire?

    Bits of both.

    I do not think they will fire him so a new coach means he would be retiring. And again my question remains has he mentioned retiring?

    He might get kicked upstairs once Dodds retires. Could be a lot of things that might be in play here.

    He was pretty adamant on the radio the other day that he had no interest in being an AD, said he's been one at Tulane and hated it, he's a coach and wants to coach he says.

    I heard exerts from that interview as well. I honestly don't know what to make of it. One thing is for certain, if the new AD wants a new HC, that's what will happen. I understand that not everything that is said can be taken as gospel in situations such as this but I think at some point, you have to come to the reality that Texas has a big contract commitment with him and it might not be as Head Football Coach if Mack wants to stick around.

    IDK. Still a lot of Football left to play.

    I've seen a few interviews of Mack's. He reminds me a lot of Jerry.

    He talks a lot but when it's over he really hasn't said much.

    Well that just means he won't be AD at Texas which I never thought he would be anyway.
