  • Great Stuff as always guys. One of the best shows you guys have done so far. I've got a question you guys really didn't cover.
    If Mack is done after this year as the HC, does Mack stay close to the program or does he kind of distant himself considering the last 4 years he has had here? Would the fan base even want him around the program? For all Mack has done, I think he deserves to be around the program in one way, shape, or form.

  • Awesome show and really appreciate Rod setting the story straight with his meeting with Mack. From my perspective, Rod didn't need to publicly share that info with anyone or address that grossly inaccurate and highly exaggerated pile of shit this weekend. He stepped up to the plate to take the heat off of a friend that was being unfairly shit on by posters on this site because they feel like their subscription grants them unfettered access to all things related to UT. Jeff and all the mods work their ass off providing great and accurate content which has surpassed the expectations I thought I would recieve for $100.

    Keep up the good work.

  • Another great podcast guys. I appreciate it, as always. Best show yet, I think. Also, way to go Matt on getting to all your damn stats.

  • Will Rod continue with the podcasts? I would love it if he had the opportunity to do a daily podcast. I always knew about him and his radio gig but I became a fan of his in the podcast format.

  • Thanks, Jetson212. I think Mack will definitely have some sort of role in the football department similar to the other prestigious former coaches and players. I can't speak for the fans, but I have learned that time does heal things in most cases. I know that as a fan, I can not thank Mack enough for what he has does at his time at Texas.

    GAHorn912 & mackryan08... As always, thanks for your feedback and for always listening to the show.

    Highsucrose... All three of us are committed to making this show as good as it can be and we have no plans of changing anything. I know we will keep recording two shows per week through the football season. We are planning on recording more than two shows per week in the future, but we have to make it work with our schedules. We would like to do it as soon we can, and we will definitely let all of the listeners know when we are able to do so.
