The Texas Longhorns aren’t in the greatest of positions right now. The team barely made it to a bowl game in 2014, which they lost in embarassing fashion to Arkansas, and now they have started their 2015 season off on a very bad note after a 38-3 drubbing at the hands of Notre Dame last week.
Many fans would look at former head coach Mack Brown and say that he may be to blame for the way things have gone down in Austin over the last few seasons, but I would personally disagree with that. He left the program after fifteen years.
During that time, he brought a national championship home as well as six Big 12 South division championships. His final four years with the program were mediocre at best, but he did something great for the Longhorns during his tenure.
According to College Football Talk, Brown knows that and he wants fans to stop blaming him for what is happening in Austin.
Mike Finger, Longhorns’ beat writer for the Houston Chronicle and SA News-Express, shared a story that Tim Griffin wrote surrounding an interview with the coach.
Brown is frustrated with the flak he has been receiving since leaving the program, but I can’t really blame him. The flak is unwarranted and if you think the shape that program is in right is in anyway Brown’s fault, then you’re as delusional as those who actually think the Longhorns are “back” in the elite of the college football this year.
Brown brought a winning attitude to Austin. It’s no fault of his if the kids don’t accept and run with it.
