Barry Switzer and T. Boone Pickens Are Laughing at How Far Mack Brown and Texas Have Fallen

Mack Brown got Texas in the BCS Title game in January of 2010, but the last two seasons have been a struggle for the Longhorns. After losing six players to the NFL, a young Texas team limped to a 5-7 finish in 2010, and 2011 hasn’t been much better: Quarterback issues, youth, and a deceptive 4-2 record.

Why is it deceptive? The front-loaded schedule was filled with laughable, standard-issue out-of-conference jokers. They’ve beaten nobody good, and only have one more definite victory on the schedule (Kansas). There’s a chance Texas will finish 5-7 again and miss another bowl game. Indulge me: Who are the Longhorns beating out of Texas Tech, (at) Missouri, Kansas State, Texas A&M and (at) Baylor?

And now, to pile on, Barry Switzer and T. Boone Pickens are laughing at the expense of Brown:

Pickens says Switzer wrote to him suggesting that Oklahoma State shouldn’t “beat them as bad as the Sooners did because we want to keep Mack Brown as coach — we want somebody that both of us can beat.”
