04:44 PM ET 10.17 | Former Texas linebacker Brian Jones, former All-Southwest first-teamer, says "the only constant" in the Longhorns' struggles against Oklahoma and otherwise has been "the head coach." The latest Red River loss was "an embarrassment," all three 60-point efforts have "come under this head coach," the current roster is "weak, timid and soft" ... and there's much more than that.

I told my wife after the 3rd Quarter on Saturday that it was just a matter of time before the "Mack Must Go" drumbeat would begin. But I gave the dude at least one more loss.

I didn't take into account that conference record and record versus Top 25 teams the last couple of years (which I wasn't aware of until yesterday).

Can't wait to talk to my brother-in-law this weekend when he comes up from Austin...

IMO, Texas should have hogtied Muschamp and never let he go to Florida, that way they could fire Brown this year and then give the job to Will!! I know that is "coulda, shoulda, woulda"!!!! If I remember correctly, FJJ was saying the same thing last year!!!

Mack never accomplished anything. Why they kept him as long as they did, seemed like he must've been getting paid peanuts, instead of donuts. Literally. He looks like a peanut eater. And the kind that throws the shells on the floor.

Dude you have amnesia. He beat ESPiN's 2005 lovechild USC - the best team money could buy at the time!

Mack. says to Stoops, so what you are saying is if a team plays good D and good O than you have a better chance of winning. Excuse while give my good friend John L Smith a call.

Yes I forgot! I have trouble remembering who won it 2 years ago much less 12 years!

I picked TX to go 9-3 with losses to WVU, OU and KSU and as far as I'm concerned they're right on track. The fact that they looked so bad vs. OU is not enough for me to jump on the Fire Mack Brown bandwagon. It looks like FJJ has made the jump.
