Losing seven of your last nine Big 12 games probably a good way to experience your monster buyout.

Texas suffers from Nebraska mentality. Just because they were at the top of the mountain many years ago, they believe they can take the escalator to the summit rather than having to make the long hard climb up.

Money is no object to them. They're determined to pay whatever price is necessary to ride the escalator, and they refuse to admit to themselves the escalator doesn't exist.
This. And they have players who were more likely consumed with their NIL deals this summer than actually putting together a quality team.

Worst culture in power 5 football. They're a collection of individuals each year posing as a team. Operative word is posing.

They’ll keep him this year because of Arch Manning.
The problem is, they have been getting great recruits for years. They get there and fall apart. They ruin them with ego, and money.

So keeping a coach that continues that trend is not going to help them.

But then again, I hope they do, because their continued mediocracy, is great. When they are the highest earning, biggest brand, top 10 recruiting that cant win, it has been great.

I’ve been trying to figure out why teams like Texas and Nebraska are no good despite having nearly every advantage imaginable. I think it comes down to booster and administration interference. I don’t think those coaches can really run the programs like they truly want to because many people are always chirping in their ear.

What advantage does Nebraska have right now besides I'd guess big boosters?

Texas is definitely the head scratcher. But so is any school that can't get it together in the middle of recruiting hotbeds.

Nebraska less so but the still have tons of money, Dan support, it’s the only game in town, national title history, in one of the Top 2 conferences, and is still considered (although I’d argue it’s about 25% of what it was) somewhat a blue blood.

Texas has the worst culture in the Big 12, and their solution was to hire Steve Sarkisian. They could have hired a dozen other coaches that would have been better choices.

Should have never forced out Mack Brown. You know, the guy that actually won a National Championship and multiple Big 12 Titles.

Texas should be the easiest place to win in college football, but they can't figure it out and it's hilarious the watch.

Yeah seems like the Jerry Jones affect happening....

The other big reason in my opinion is simply complacency. It's no secret Texas could do literally no recruiting trips and put very little effort in and still get a higher ranked class than ISU. They can get pretty much the top of the top talent.....but with that comes a lot of the "I'm just here as a stepping stone to the NFL" type mentality. Kids who have been told they got it made already.

Take that vs. the Iowa States and Kansas States of the world where you get a lot of guys hungry and looking to make a name for themselves. Guys who've had to work their whole life to get a small slice of recognition or to be noticed.

Kind of like Nebraska with Bo Pelini. Say what you want about his character but he finished 6 out of his 7 season ranked and won 3 Big 12 north titles and 1 big 10 west title.

Mack was probably close to needing a change of scenery but you're spot on about their culture.
