Don’t worry Texas Longhorns fans, head coach Mack Brown doesn’t like himself any more than you do right now. The coach has been the subject of much criticism in the past couple of weeks following two blowout losses against the BYU Cougars and Ole Miss Rebels by an average of 20.5 points.
The fan base at Texas has been increasingly angry at the 15-year coach of the Longhorns and for good reason. Since 2010, Brown has led the Longhorns to 15 Big 12 losses since 2010 while accumulating just 16 total from 1998-2009. The 62-year-old coach is watching his team sinking fast and his seat is growing hotter and hotter as the days go by.
Brown, with a career record at Texas of 151-45, has seen fans turn on him quicker than he ever thought possible, yet he understands the frustration with his fans. His team has received its fair share of boos in the past couple of weeks because of the poor play.
He had this to say in a recent interview:
Mack tells the fans again to root for the players: “They don’t have to like me. I’m not happy with me right now. I might boo me.”

If he’s not a fan of himself right now, who is? I can understand that he wants the blame solely put on himself, but his team has just been flat-out awful and it all starts with the lack of defense being played in the first three weeks.
Well, Mack, not too many people are fans of you, either. Hook ’em Horns.
