    Shut up, Mack Brown

    Orangebloods.com - Mack Brown expresses concerns about LHN

    Some highlights from Mack Brown's complaints about the LHN:

    "Brown even said if a player needs to have an ankle taped, the UT medical staff will tape both ankles so anyone watching LHN won't know if a player is injured."

    "Brown said he's spending six hours a week minimum preparing, participating or traveling to the studio for shows that air on LHN."

    "But I've got a microphone on every time I talk to the team," Brown said. "So I'm sure other coaches are sitting there watching me coach our team."

    "Brown added, "I didn't ask for it. We were given a deal we had no input in."
    Please **** off, Mack. You're ******** about a deal that gives your team an unparalleled advantage over every other school in the country. A deal that pays Texas $15 million a year. A deal that should attract the best recruits, allow Texas to build the best facilities and hire the best assistants; and you're complaining that you have cameras following you?

    Its amazing he is still employed. Texas has every advantage, yet he has only 2 conference titles in 15 years... and now he dares whine about the inconveniences of one of the things that brings those huge advantages?

    So they're going to make Mack the scapegoat for LHN failing when ESPN pulls the plug because nobody will sign-on to carry the ****** network.

    Six hours to prepare to TALK? I thought that is what coaches do.

    Also, how are these other coaches watching the LHN when no one else can?

    The right coach would relish all of that exposure. Every other school should be playing ketchup. Sorry.

    The LHN is the reason Texas' defense sucks.

    Hey Tejas I hear the Chiz might be looking for a job if Mack does not work out.

    Mack Brown can't coach himself out of a paper bag

    Still not sure this individual school network thi.g is going to work really well. It might work for notre dame.

    He can send it to us, along with the paychecks if it sucks to bad. It does bring up an interesting topic though. When you sell your soul, do you get to keep anything?

    Re: Shut up, Mack Brown

    The best part of all of this is only 3 carriers have picked this up...and are not huge players down here as far as cable goes. No other cable network wants to carry this...and I find it funny they cannot even get it picked up in Texas from major companies.
