How now Mack Brown?

Texas is 1-1, and it’s not necessarily that the Longhorns lost at BYU but how they lost.

Ole Miss players say they expect Texas’ best shot in Austin this weekend.

“I think they feel like their backs are against the wall with the national media and their media saying the things they’re saying about them,” Bo Wallace said.

Success against Ole Miss won’t likely stamp out all the fires around Texas coach Mack Brown, but without it, things only get hotter.

Here’s a USA Today look at Texas and USC — where former Ole Miss coach Ed Orgeron is an assistant to Lane Kiffin, the brother of Rebels’ DL coach Chris Kiffin.

      That trip to Coral Gables definitely did something to you, sir!!

    JB, there’s no way the sharkfins lose this one. It’s too late for Mack Brown. Hugh Freeze is becoming Sylvester Croom. When he beats you…you get fired!

      I don’t think Ole Mi$$ will beat Texas.!!

    Bama to up Saban’s contract towards $8.5 million per year !! Texas will have to up the ante or fold.

    Ole Miss season tickets almost gone. Less than 1,300 remaining. They won’t last long. SEMO was right at sell out at 60900.

    Alabama has a waiting list of thousands for season tickets..its easier to get a ticket to The Masters! There won’t be such a demand next year, when Sharkfins are on probation.

    JB, you’ve been smokin rabbit tobacco. Texas could get beat by Texas State at this point. Sharkfins win easily. Just kidding bout the rabbit tobacco, old friend.

    • JB

      Use to smoke a little rabbit tobacco out on the farm in SE Lafayette Co. Mi$$. A little plant that grew wild out there and it was not fit for smoking until a certain King Babbit took a wee on it, Us rabbit hunters were very selective about the rabbits we shot and not to get that hung King Rabbit..My friend have a good day- don’t let the black bears catch up with you,the hung king rabbit may not protect you. 🙂

        JB! You’re a true Mississippian. Funny how that plant seemed to grow in the back of barns. Heehee!!
