Say your goodbyes. For all you die-hard Aggie fans who haven’t heard, head coach for the Texas Longhorns, Mack Brown, is said to be leaving. Multiple reports have leaked, and well quite frankly, I wouldn’t see anything different. Texas’ poor year in the “Big” 12 has put ole’ Mack on the hot seat. With losses to Oklahoma State and Baylor, as well as non-conference foe, Ole Miss, the Texas defense has not been seen and not only with that, but their offense hasn’t had a leader; switching quarterbacks through out the year.
Not only has the Longhorn’s poor season put Mack in a bind, but Alabama’s Nick Saban, is looking to be their next head coach. Rumors have spread that Saban has bought a house in Texas, as of yesterday, and today, the announcement of Mack retiring was released. Saban is currently being paid around $5.5 million dollars at Alabama, and well projections of at least $7-8 million dollars have been attributed to Saban. With these leads, there are also negotiations going on between Saban and Alabam, and for sure, Texas and Saban. Saban, already the highest paid head coach in college football, has been negotiating with Alabama, possibly earning $6.6 million.
How does this affect the Aggies? Well the Lone Star Rivalry would be renewed, and honestly, how much fun would it be to beat Saban (again) at Kyle Field or even in Austin rather than Tuscaloosa. There has already been reports that the Longhorn’s new Athletic Director, Steve Patterson, would like to begin this rivalry again. Sawing them off in new Kyle Field. What a feeling. And while we’re at it, let us not forget, Mack did recruit our star, Johnny Manziel, as a safety.
