    Save your little slick comments. Mack Brown is having his third straight mediocre season. Texas is the same team as last year but the problems has switched from offense in 2011 to defense in 2012, though I think the offense is a bit of a fraud. Texas has given up 200 yards to five of their opponents this year. They tackle poorly and they miss assignments. Statistically, texas is maybe having rheir worse defense since the gary darnell days. 90% of Texas fans that follow this program could care less that they are 6-2 right now. They can't beat ranked teams, can't beat their hated rivals, can't contend for conference titles, and can't contend for national titles.

    Problem is, we need a real QB before this team can contend for anything. Debating Ash vs. Mccoy, reminds me of the Quincy vs. Hutch debacle here in Dallas.

    Yeah, I know they have problems and I did mention that they have not been good for 2 1/2 years now. I even said they basically suck for a 6-2 team.

    We agree on the team right now.

    None of that was the point. The point was that they have been pretty elite for about 12-15 years now since Brown has been there. In fact the entiore athletic program has gone to another level in this time in many ways.

    My issue is the whiny, what-have-you-done-for-me-lately attitude that ignores the very recent past.
    It's no wonder so so many fans from other schools call UT fans the "whiny orange" fans. And I'm a UT fan.

    They hit a rough stretch and everyone wants Brown's head.
    Classic.

    They JUST played in a National Title game in Jan 2010! We're not talking 1999, but 2010 (2009 season). And won one in 2005.

    Hey, it's everyone's right to an opinion. If you want the guy gone, I'd say he's left the entire athletic program (and yes, football funds just about everything) in pretty good shape for the next guy.
    They still seem to be recruiting pretty well too. I would not be surprised that in the next 2-4 years they are once again in the national title race.

    Mack said this reminds him of 2004 when they beat Kansas and that team went on to to win the Rose Bowl. either he actually believes this and is so far beyond the ability to grasp reality he might be insane or he's full of ****. I'll let you decide.

    i thought so, but i didnt know the injury or how severe......the offense misses him a lot.

    still, we have so much speed with Goodwin, Daje, and DJ.....no excuse not to utilize that speed to the max....

    Love the way the team has been playing lately. Our D has been playing like they were expected to at the beginning of the season. I think we are capable of beating KSU. If we can get by TCU the way we beat Iowa State and Tech we can pull of an upset and head to a BSC bowl.

    recruiting took some hits these past few weeks. the program is in a state of flux. i wish we would cut our losses and go get a real head coach this offseason but i dont see it happening with the country club atmosphere around the program.
