Mackovic had a better record his last three years than Brown has had. Mackovic was 22-14-1 from 95 thru 97. Brown has gone 21-16 the last three years pending the bowl game, which wouldn't catch him up to Mackovic.
Brown has three straight losses to OU, where Mackovic won one, tied one, and lost one. Mackovic won the Last SWC Championship in 95, the first Big12 Championship in 96, got slaughtered in 97 and was fired on the spot. Brown hasn't won any hardware the last three years.
As damning as anything I've seen
Some on this board do not want any criticism of Mack. They certainly do not appreciate someone confronting their bias with facts.
275-0 scoring margin
Dana X Bible's National Championship team
Did mackovic win a NC?
Did he play in another?
Was he Gideon gimme from a 3rd NC game? Was he a Simms half away from a 4th?
It all matters...
I am curious about why we are using 3 years as the window given when the staff change occured.
If you go 2 years or 4+, the "facts" change radically.
But we get it, Mack sucks, you want him gone.
The three year run has been poor to average, no question.
I think Brown also took Texas to a higher consistent level than Mackovic ever did.
But at the same time, the amount of blowouts Texas has suffered during Brown's tenure far exceeds that of any other coach.

I'll take Mack's 21-16 over 22-14-1 when you factor in the final A&M win and the final Nebraska win.
Well, Mackovic had a pretty bigtime Nebraska win, too. Roll left.
I just think it's another interesting data point that shows how the program has basically trended far more downward than any of us could have imagined when we were strolling into the Rose Bowl to take on Alabama for the NC.
I don't see it as much of a data point. Lots of different variables. The bottom line is we've sucked and putting it up against Mackovic isn't making it any more clear.
OP, did you not see the multiple page thread about Scipio's article?
Yeah. I missed that. Sorry. And someone just sent the Scipio article to me. My bad.
A friend sent me this and I had no idea that it was already on the webs. Seems as though Scipio was the first one to notice this particular data point re Mack/Mackovic.
This board has many assets and a helluva lot of things going for it, but one of the best ones is that echeese doesn't seem to stink up every thread here that is critical of Mack as he does at another site.

It is not too late for Mack to turn it around . Things are going down big time right now. Next year will be extremely important for us. They have to have a great season. At least a BCS Bowl. Have to have that to right the ship on recruiting and get the fans back on board.
I remember setting in the stands at Lubbock in 1968 as we lost to Tech. Heard griping about Coach Royal. One guy said " Darrel was a good coach for us but times have passed him by. Time for a change." We won 31 in a row after that. Know Mack is no Royal and do not expect that to happen but you never know, things can turn around.
You ask a fair question. On other threads I have pointed out that Mack decided to alter the spread offense that had gone 25-2 the last two years and 45-8 after our National Championship. He and he alone decided to change a system that was working. We have changed coaches. We have changed players. To me the 3 year period is defined by Mack's change without looking that for the previous years we had recruited offensive players for a spread offense rather than a power run game.
But Mack's trending up..........to 8 wins!
He doesn't post much here. But if you say something critical of Greg Davis, he will come back from the grave and smite you down.
