Nope, we had to wait until our true freshmans grew up. It's pretty typical with a complete rebuild like we went through just two years ago.
Once we get back to where we were in 2009, our recruiting and experienced coaching staff will maintain going forward. Still talking about a complete overhaul of both our personnel and our coaching staff. Next year we should be another step closer to where we were in 2009.
"brilliant moves???? He hired a couple of coaches, it remains to be seen how effective they are, our OL and DT's were average this year. Check out how brilliant our run game was this year and our defense against the run. Not saying they weren't good hires but calling it brilliant is quite a reach.

Whose fault is that?
Is he still here?
no one should say we lost because we were young and quite frankly, no good coach will blame a loss on youth. This is something that Mack has done many times and I absolutely hate it. Saban is the ideal coach. Mack is nothing like him. If we lose, it is because of Mack's inability to get his teams ready to face OU. I think Major will play a big part in David Ash's development this spring. He will have him ready for the season. Mack will attend to the media which is what he is good for.
Physically - yes
Mentally - no

You mean, you want OU to think they still have a chance when they go to halftime?
Did you write this Chupita ? Are you really Roe ? Gotta be !!
This really made me smirk.
Kenny Vaccaro and Alex Okafor are heading pro... Defense will be decimated losing its two best players (the only two consistent players) while having the worst defense in school history to begin with.......
Change the title to staying within 20-30 and I'll possibly agree. You did get one thing right though, defense will win the game, that's mannys winning the game for OU.
Thanks again for your input Mrs. Brown.

I couldnt see anything they could do stop the Belldozer this year... It didnt matter if they were in his way or not. I dont know what we need to feed them to get them bigger this year!
Biggest reason is that OU won't be a Top 10 team next year.
Mack has lost 9 of 10 (90%) when OU was ranked in the Top 10.
I have a question. Just what is Mack's record against top ten teams while he has been here at Texas? What was the record when Vince was our starting qb against top ten teams?
275-0 scoring margin
Dana X Bible's National Championship team
We lose a lot on defense, but we will put a competitive product on the field. The offense will not be full time belldozer but will have some QB run game in it. We need a much better scheme on defense. Its not an experience issue because we played a ton of people on defense this year. If we can get our DTs to play better, lots of things will start to come together.......unless we play that same scheme.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
This QB running O seems to be picking up steam again. Got some of it in the NFL. Myself, I am not going to be confident of beating OU until I see it. This group of players , know they were young, got punched in the mouth by OU last two years. It looked to me like they quit. This last OU team was not that good, that was proven out. We made them look like Bama.
Mack's record vs. Top 10 opponents is 10-19 (34%).
Vince's record vs. Top 10 opponents was 3-2 (60%). (Lost to OU in '03 & "04. Beat tOSU, Tech, USC in '05)
Here's another interesting fact:
Mack has 9 ten-win seasons at Texas, which is great. However, in 7 of those 10-win seasons, Mack lost to every Top 10 team he faced, and Texas was relegated to a minor bowl.
To me, Mack's record indicates a coach who's certainly a Top 25, but not Top 5 or 10, and certainly not Top 2, as he's currently being paid.
