Texas QB controversy officially opens Aug. 5

08:19 AM ET 07.30 | Mack Brown is humming a familiar tune, insisting that a quarterback race is no done deal. Mack said the four-man race for the starting job was wide open in the spring of 2011, even though most of us believed there was no way that Garrett Gilbert would not take the first snap of the season. ... So now Mack is back at it, spreading the gospel or tantalizing media and fans with suggestions that either Ash or McCoy could be handed the reins to a run-heavy offense. Maybe the coaches didn't know before they got away this week for a 2 1/2-day retreat to fine-tune plans for fall workouts, which will begin after the team reports Aug. 5. Both quarterbacks had their moments last season.

as to the thread, the rusty cow QB controversy started long before this Aug 5.

They compared salaries and got mad over the discrepancy.

The problem is Mack Brown's trying to find a Timex QB - one that can take a lickin' and still keep tickin'. I wonder if Case will be as fragile as his older brother.

Mack Brown has entered the Joe Paterno and Bobby Bowden old man training program for coaches who are out of touch with today's players. Since Mack is clueless and old , Brown can stand around and do nothing like Paterno and Bowden. Go mack

Ouch!

Will UTx give Mack the same amount of years of mediocrity, that UTk gave Phillip, just because they won a MNC?

Not if they have paid any attention to where UTk is nowadays.

Was painting the under-eaves of the shed this weekend...had my hat turned around so the bill wouldn't get in the way. Stepped out to look at what I had done and looked up into the sun. My first reaction was to shield my eyes with my hand. Realizing what I was doing, my hand continued around to the back and grabbed the bill....LOL

FWIW....Bleacherrport has a list of the top 50 college quarterbacks.
Guess what school is not on the list?

Did we not just see this thread worded differently just a few days ago? There is no QB controversy, they don't have any!!!
