Here is what he is saying now:
"Looking back doesn't do any good," Brown said, "and I still can't figure out the computers. I'm proud the humans are voting us third and fourth in the country. And we are a really good football team."Why can't this man just say things like, "If we keep winning, things will work out. We just need to focus on next week's game." Oh wait, then he would sound like Tedford. Let me explain to you how the computers work, Mack Brown.
1) You lost to Ohio St. and it was not close. Yes, they are the #1 team in the country but do you really think you should be above an undefeated Louisville team. Imagine what you would have said last year, if your undefeated Texas team was leapfrogged by a one loss team. But more importantly...
2) Who have you beat and how did you beat them? You beat Nebraska (on a fluke fumble), Oklahoma (on a down year) and Texas Tech (barely) and expect to get more respect than Florida or Auburn. Or maybe we should look at your non-conference scheduling of North Texas and Sam Houston St. Texas did not even play a road game until late October.
He also said:
"If all the coaches and athletic directors could understand exactly who the computers want you to play and where they want you to play them, and then if you could know how many games they were going to win, it would probably help all of us," Brown said.I guess this has not been made clear enough. So let me make it clear. Play team outside the state of Texas and play teams where Vegas will still make a line on the game. Replace North Texas with a middle of the pack SEC team. Drop Sam Houston St. for a Pac 10 team. Oklahoma is doing a home and home with Oregon. It is really not that hard to understand.
Please Mack Brown just stop talking about the computers and the BCS. Focus instead on beating Kansas St. next week. Be proud of the fact that your team is playing well against such average competition.
