As one of the most consistent college football programs in recent memory, Longhorn fans are having difficulty accepting their recent struggles.
Currently sitting at 1-2 after two awful losses to both Ole Miss and BYU, fans and pundits have been calling for the job of head coach Mack Brown, who is obviously feeling the pressure.
Hell, Brown is even siding with the unhappy fans and alumni, suggesting that if he was a fan, he might boo himself too.
Per Chuck Carlton:
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.”
Given the dominance that some NCAA programs have (both in basketball and football), you’re essentially damned if you do, damned if you don’t. At the first sniff of something less than elite level play, as a head coach your seat gets burning hot and continues to warm from there.
In a way, you can’t help but feel for Brown as he probably feels the walls are crumbling from within.
He and the Longhorns will have the opportunity to fix things against a tough Kansas State this coming Saturday.
