He must really love Stoops and hoops.

I believe his position coach at EMCC got a job on Stoops' staff.
Looks like Mack is really kicking some ass on the JUCO front. Just freaking pathetic.
There are some reasons to pick on Mack . . . not getting JUCO Smith is not one of them. We were forth or fifth in line to start.
Starting to hear some funny things on Smith.
According to an assistant at East Mississippi, the assistant received a text from Smith last night.
I'll recount the text conversation as it was told to me.
"Coach, how many wins did Kentucky have last year?"
"Don't know. I'm thinking I like the Wildcats."
According to the coach, last night was the first time the player had mentioned Kentucky to him. Ever.

Bullshit. Mack Brown has gone all in on finding JUCOs to solve the problems he's allowed to fester. He gets to get judged on it, too. They targeted 7 JUCOs over the past few months, this guy included. Unless they get Harrison, I believe they're going to wind up 0 for 7. If he had gone even 3 for 7, guys on here would be screaming, not singing, but screaming his praises as though the program were about to hunt down the MNC.
Might as well start payment plan early...otherwise kentucky will continue to suck. I am disliking college sports more and more
CTJ, sometimes I wish you would ... Jump up! For my love! Seriously, why are you so petulant? You continuously seem to wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Swaim signed today and Campbell and Harrison will most likely be horns. Your attitude sure leaves something to be desired and I sure am glad your not the one running the zoo.
Maybe I'm wrong but didn't we jump in late for a majority of them?
He has mental issues. It's best to just put him on ignore.
That is correct.
Big Blue Motors?
Out of state JUCOs who were not Texans to begin with are always going to be a very low hit rate. Mack is not pathetic for trying to get said player and not getting him. In fact I applaud Mack for trying. Dogging Mack for that is really reaching.
Now if you want to pick on Mack in this arena, I think the avenue is "why did it take him so long to start on the JUCO path."
Just so we're clear, I referenced the JUCO push over the past few months and the utter failure that it has been. Swaim has nothing to do with that. He was clearly a target last spring and someone for whom they had a rational plan. The rest of the "work" that has been done is scurrilous for anyone following recruiting for years. They've been throwing shit at the wall and hoping something sticks.
You may be right, and they may sign Campbell and Harrison, but those aren't over and they don't make up for many of the holes Brown has left wide open. He owns all of this, irrespective of how some of you guys wish to absolve him at all costs. The desperate JUCO gambit is turning into a farce and the program wouldn't be dealing with any of it if Brown had the guts and gumption to hang it up, but he doesn't.
I am sure that makes me a big meanie, but I'm going to have to live with that, I guess. My bad for looking at of this crap Brown is churning around him right now and finding his continued employment reprehensible.
How does this function as an excuse for any of it?
There is how something makes us "feel" and then there is what is getting done. What is getting done is all that matters. Mack Brown's entire career has been driven by recruiting success. Now that he is shitting the bed on that, and refusing to step down, this program is embarking on more lean years. All of the excuses for why that is so, or how you wish for him to be judged because of those excuses, is just what I've already said - bullshit. Either it is getting done or it isn't. Any spit and polish beyond that is a waste of time.
Your first post came off as - failure to sign Smith is evidence of Mack being pathetic.
That's a reach.
Based on your further writings, its clear you mean - Mack's getting to the JUCO game too late this season smacks of desperation -- and you just chose to post that somewhat incongruent thought in this thread to bitch about it. This later thought is debatable I suppose, but I missed that being your original point.
1) JUCO Signs elsewhere
2) CTJ - responds - Mack is pathetic
3) Crew of folks reply - Mack is not pathetic because JUCO signs elsewhere.
4) CTJ - the program is going to shit because Mack sucks.
Man - it didnt take you long to get from 1-4. This was a thread about a shot in the dark JUCO going somewhere else and you use it as a springboard to go off on how Mack sucks.
C'mon man. The key here is that you thought you were making a point and instead you just cluttered up the thread. We're going to keep working with you, but you're going to have to bring the effort on your end to get better.

ctj needs to stop being a whiny bitch, it's getting old.
Getting old? He's been like that since day one. And I've had him hidden since then too. Everyone should.

This. The CS contrarian act gets tired after your 4th or 5th bullshit or Mack rant. We get it, no need to poison every thread with it, maybe start an F Mack blog and post a link.
