The Texas Longhorns regular season ended today with a 30-10 loss to the Baylor Bears, in what actually became the unofficial Big 12 Championship Game following Oklahoma’s win over Oklahoma State earlier in the day.
With the loss, Texas finished their season 8-4, which will undoubtedly get the “Fire Mack Brown” crowd out in full force sooner rather than later.
Would winning the Big 12 title have cooled the heat on Mack? Well, that we’ll never know the answer to.
Regardless, a lot of people wondered whether or not the Longhorns’ inspired play this season after beginning 0-2 had anything to do with the team getting themselves together to try and keep their coach’s job safe.
After today’s loss, embattled quarterback Case McCoy was asked that question, and he gave a pretty stern answer, which didn’t exactly show much support to Brown:
“We played for us, not him.” – Case McCoy, on playing in possibly Mack Brown’s final season #HookEm

Although, maybe McCoy was the wrong player to ask this of, because if his play at times alone was any indication, you would think that he was trying to get Mack canned.
