07:18 AM ET 09.16 | Oh-and-2 is a good way to put it for Mack Brown's Longhorns, courtesy a 44-23 loss to Ole Miss on the heels of a season-opening 40-21 loss to BYU. Three straight disappointing seasons has become four. The Longhorns are 23-18 since the start of the 2010 season. ... The 'Horns have fallen, and they can't get up. And the Brown era seems near an end. The fans have turned; Mack was booed Saturday night at Royal-Memorial Stadium. His sacrificial firing of defensive coordinator Manny Diaz a day after the BYU bashing didn't change much. Ole Miss rushed for 272 yards, an acceptable sum only when compared to Brigham Young. Worse yet, Brown's champion, athletic director DeLoss Dodds, might be on his way out, too. Orangebloods.com reported that Dodds will retire in January.

I thought they'd have the same photo up as they had yesterday of Brown....you know, the one where he's holding up his right hand showing the number of games he has left in Austin.

Mack Brown's days are numbers. So are mine. I'm up to 16 (for this month) :P

Mack's running out of assistants to fire in mid-season. Add the fact that I heard that a fair number of hotel rooms in Austin were occupied by A&M and Bama fans who couldn't get lodging in College Station, which isn't going to sit well with the Longhorn alums and TPTB at UTx.

Maybe all of the "assistants in waiting" (Mitch, I'm talking to you) had the good sense to see what was coming -- Mack wasn't going to leave except under less-than-pretty circumstances, so they'd best move on. Perhaps that's who'll they'll bring back to replace him.

Ha ha hotel rooms in Austin are ~15% higher than other cities, A&M/'Bama fans got soaked! I guess they decided it was better to pay more than to stay in Waco.

Didn't go a few years ago for 70 million over 10 years, why would he go now?

It's funny, you guys have been saying he's leaving for 7 years now....

It's hard to read the sarcasm because for so many years, you guys posted it and believed it. :)

What do you UTx fans think? Who do you want as the next HC, and is this list real?

Assuming you have a $10 million salary cap, anyone is possible......just curious as to whom you would pick.
