Yeah, I pretty much came away with the same thought.
Mack Brown = one helluva CEO, runs the Texas program like a Fortune 500 program (well, one that doesn't need a bailout).
Its amazing to me that Mack Brown really led Texas into becoming "Texas" rather then "UT." I mean you guys aren't even really a college team, you are literally the representation of the best football players from Texas (which along with FL and CA are the 3 hotbeds of football talent). Your recruiting is just absolutely insane, pretty much fill your class with 4/5 Stars when they are juniors. TCU does a good job of getting the best scraps, and Tech could compete when they had a brilliant coach. I'm guessing the demise of SMU also helped, and A&M use to be decent during the 90's didn't they?
USC had to cheat to get that kind of talent. And FL seems to have a revolving door on who has the state (Miami, FSU, and currently Florida). Whereas Texas has essentially maintained it for nearly a decade with no stop in sight.
Anyways, IMO, you guys are always a failure if you don't win a NC with your talent pool
Where as with our talent pool, we are a success if we win 4 games
