**UPDATE** Mack Brown resigns.
Months ago, after the humiliating beat down BYU applied to the UT Longhorns and the fire Mack Brown screams were their loudest, one of the contributors at a UT blog claimed that his biggest fear in removing Brown and finding his replacement was that UT would look like a “clown car,” when a large number of clowns exit the car.
Well, with the way events have unfolded in the past six days at UT, with the Board of Regents voting to keep the President, the new AD not yet in full control of his office trying to be relevant, Mack Brown staying out of town dodging meetings with the administration and Nick Saban not signing his contract extension with ‘Bama giving hope to UT fans that he might be their new coach, we come to the exclusive video.
Mack is the ring leader, the administration is in the car and Nick Saban is the one hiding just out of sight.
I expect this scene to be repeated a number of times in the coming days, as we now know Saban has signed his contract extension with ‘Bama. The UT President and new AD have stated often in the past 24 hours that Mack is their “friend,” which would indicate that Mack will retain his job for at least one more season. The boys and girls at Burnt Orange Nation are not well pleased with this prospect.
Probably next year’s 5-7, I’d guess.
Once the fanbase has turned on a coach the way that this one has turned on Brown there’s no saving the program. Never. This kind of thing never gets turned around. Kind of surprised that smart people like Powers and Patterson would allow this kind of needless damage to occur to the football program but apparently Patterson is too new (or too timid) to rock the boat and Powers put his friendship with Mack Brown above his duty to the University of Texas.
Nothing to do now but to watch in horror the continued deterioration of Texas football and all that comes with that.
Send in the clowns.
