All I needed to hear. 2013 will be a failure. FU Mack!
That was my thought as well. What else would he tell his assistants? "Not sure if I'm going to be around yet but I kmow you're going to be fired shortly."?
"Leadership is wisdom, courage and great carelessness of self"
How many years has it been now since "we've started over" under Mack? Same tired BS that we've heard before, but yet we keep getting the same results. I wonder why that is???. Now that were going to a bowl game that he actually has a chance of winning, he wants our practices to be as physical as ever since he's been here at Texas? What a great time to start that (at the end of the season). I guess that means will actually be tackling now. I mean the fact that people inside the University actually put up with this is just astonishing, but then again $$$ talks. I wonder how many favors Mack had to give to some of these "big donors" in order to get their support. Just makes me sick. If Diaz comes back next year, I don't know if I'll even be able to watch this team. He is just flat out brutal.
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants".
Mack uses the words "intense" and "physical" and "power" more than anybody I've ever heard. Honestly I wish he would just STFU
The problem is I wish his teams played with intensity, were physical and had a power running game...............anytime Mack says something the opposite is usually true..........
and personally, that scares me to death.
I almost think that this has to be a troll, just because of the INSANITY of Mack wanting to keep Diaz. That is about the craziest thing I've ever heard, and I just cannot believe it, except I can. If Mack stays and Manny stays, next year will be no different from this year.
We are doomed.
"Auferre, trucidare, rapere, falsis nominibus imperium; atque, ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant".
Mack is in Diaz's corner.
What a complete bastard. Mack is more interested in doing it his way than earning the effing money than we are wasting on the shithead.
If Manny comes back, I am officially done with Mack. He is holding the program hostage the same way Bowden held Florida State back.
Screw you Mack. If Petersen does sign with Arky it's probably because he was getting sick of Mack hanging around, just like Muschamp.
We need a real coach Mack, GTFO. Your legacy is shit to me. By next year, it will be shit to everyone else too.
there was no "hand the program off to Peterson" plan in place. I don't understand why people believe such a thing would exist.
You are speaking for every Longhorn I know. Enough is enough.
Good writeup and thanks. But I think the DL is about as weak as they come. Some of it is scheme, but they can't move the OL and just get pushed aside. Our DEs rush themselves constantly out of running plays. We can't keep taking fat RBs and make them DL and expect to compete for NCs. We need those 330 pound Nose Guards and DLs that Alabama, LSU, etc. have to stuff the run and push the OL back into the QB. The urgency at LB is a direct reflection of our very poor DL - and remember how that was talked up this summer as a position of strength and depth. But that was because they looked good against our weak OL.
The conversation here (even by the principles) was that this D was going to be really special.
Uhhhhh, not so much.
