09:34 AM ET 09.25 | In his early days as Texas' football coach, Mack Brown would remind Longhorns players who were part of the 1997 team about the humiliation of their 66-3 loss to UCLA. He says those types of motivational ploys are long gone, though. "We have not talked to the kids about it; they weren't really around," Brown said this week. "The media and the fans are going to talk about it. But the kids were 4 or 5 years old at the time. They don't know players from that game, and the coaches have changed."

Cold front approaching with a chance of rain for today's game, some heavy downpours possible. It could be sloppy.

Is it me or is Mack packing a few pounds this year?

Yes. He's definitely put on some lbs. He's going to be moved to the OLine since he outgrew his old position.

He is getting tired of dominating college football and maybe he is secretly entering pie eating contests on the side......

He could use this as motivation and it would get JRM to suit up....

The sloppy field might slow down some of that "SEC speed", oh crap, I'm sorry, we are talking about the BIG 12 and the PAC 10!!!! LOL.

Oh, wait, my bad. I said there was only 1 good thing that came out of the game. But actually there was a second.Texas QB Marty Cherry was "officially" discovered by a modeling agency and he went on to be the face of Polo, A&F, Chaps. Major LOL

Somebody always gets the silver lining..........

I don't believe he's a homer. He's just stating opinion.

Some people's opinion is a fact in their mind. Right, OT? :)

I still don't see how UCLA dropped Houston; I guess knocking out Keenum and his backup helps... but I don't see UCLA being remotely close in this game (Neuheisel teams seem to be anomalies don't they?... kinda smoke and mirrors), especially if the weather is going to be as what everyone here is saying...

LOL!!! Yes you are right (sometimes).

Conjecture.

Thats just his money belt.

Mack looked like he was going to have a stroke out there today. Maybe he can use this game as a motivational tool.

Better luck next season Horns. The mighty UCLA Bruins hooked you today and the Sooners will cook you next week.

We can all rest assured that the domer homer's will not be saying anything to the 'horn fans! They may be sitting beside the u$c fans, watching bowl games this year.

Now Brown can use the 34-12 whuppin' as a more contemporary motivational ploy.
