Injured ISU LB Jake Knott, arguably the Cyclones' best player, tweeted earlier that he receiver a letter from Texas head coach Mack Brown. His response:
"Mack Brown, thank you very much for the letter. You are truly a class act."

Class thing to do.

glad to see it.
Now where can a brother get some of that letterhead?
Reason # 1,365, 988 that I am proud to have Mack at the helm in Texas.
I'm guessing it was a "thank-you" note.
I kid... Best of luck to Knott for a speedy recovery as he prepares for the NFL draft.
Mods, any knowledge ab how big of a drop off from Knott to his back-up?

I don't know anyone that doesn't think Mack Brown is a fine person.

Nice thing indeed but that will not help you win football games.
True, Macks done plenty of that as well though (winning football games)...
If memory serves, Texas is the #1 team (winning ) across all BCS Conferences since Mack has been hired.
Just win baby!

I just wanted to write you and tell you how envious I am of your guts, grit, heart and balls. If I had any semblance of those things within spitting distance of what you possess, I'd have a clue about what it meant to develop that kind of make-up within the program I run. Unfortunately, since I lack those things, I can't locate them in recruiting and I lack the ability to instill them once the players get on campus. As a result, I usually field a team of insecure bullies with a huge sense of entitlement that can frontrun with anyone, but has a hard time handling beating anyone comparable or better in talent. In short, my team always winds up looking a lot like me and less like guys like you.
Anyway, I just wanted to write and say that I feel indicted by what you've made of yourself and I am simply grateful we don't have to face you in a few weeks. Look me up if you travel with the team so I can give you a big hug, rub your neck, and lavish hyperbole on you. You are truly a friend of the Texas program and good luck in your recovery.
Holy shit, I just peed myself at lunch!!

What's this all about? Didn't he send a note to a injured Tech player last week? I don't get it. Does he know these kids? Their families? Did he recruit them? What does the opposing coach think? What's the point? What's he trying to accomplish? Not saying it's a bad thing, just don't get it.
PS: I am a mirror reflection of the majority of my/UT's fan base. Especailly the part about "insecure bullies with a huge sense of entitlement"
and drinks zima
Why be a complete and total dick? Is it just too hard not to be cynical? Shame on you for being a mighty asshole.
"Auferre, trucidare, rapere, falsis nominibus imperium; atque, ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant".
WTH coach, he already admits to being a fat Mexican whore. What else do you want from him???

Take it easy Barbara. Don't hate CTJ because genuinely cares about the program. Your blind support for Mack only helps ensure mediocrity.
Lots of idiots in the world DharmaCombat
I love you. Really. I do.
She doesn't need the comfort fit Wranglers either, at least in the front.
You make me raff.
If my mind serves me right but the past two year we haven't (won games and NOW that what counts). If we want to be a big dog in TX then we need to win. I don't know about y'all but I have seen a lot of ATM on TV, announcer have been talking how good this team is. I don't see it but being in the SEC they get ALOT of exposure. I see a lot of change now and we need to win now to keep recruits out of ATM and SEC.
Oh man, by not jumping onto the "Mack has lost it bandwagon" I have DOOMED the Longhorns to mediocrity. (Sad face)
I'm glad the vast majority of Longhorn fans are not like the tiny minority of posters on this bandwagon. Yep, that's right, we like the fact that UT's head coach is a class act. Yep, that's right, we appreciate the team that Mack has built, and taken to two MNCs. Yep, that's right, we don't think all is lost as a team that is full of underclassmen continues to improve.
But you keep on thinking the bandwagoners being a-holes makes UT better somehow...
Thanks, Blake. It's good to have a reminder of the positive Mack brings to the table while representing our University of Texas. I know this doesn't change the season, but Mack's class is certainly something I hope our next coach also has.
