Here and honestly stop on by a clear view a -- nonperishable items getting as many as we can't the second harvest food bank here for the how the bases will be here to eat in the year. On a home of the Saints and Tigers and the pelicans pelicans and attend -- that night. This is that you don't you Hillary hot story in sports of course that two of the highest paid the two guys -- coaches in college football. One is Nick Saban the other is Mack Brown on blood got comedy club thought all things Texas and long on athletics. Was the first to come out earlier this week and say that they had learned that it -- that would be stepping down. As head football coach Jason -- -- joins us now who -- was Texas football and -- on blood dot com. Jason thank you so much for the comments -- we all have -- -- pain in my mind although all his and with Mack had done this year. He turned a program around they've beat Oklahoma on you didn't beat Baylor but if if Texas didn't clearly have their Maine and our. -- strong possibility that the that they -- on the short list I wouldn't think it did Mack Brown would be moving away from the coaching position what what did you take. I think that's fair to say you mentioned Nick Saban and that's. Certainly all signs are pointing towards. That it's texas' top target now I would say. Whoever second -- very distant second no I think the people. To them that make these decisions that Texas the power that power players in Texas. They feel like the statement thing using real strong possibility now yes we in my opinion Johnson and I don't know what the -- it's an eccentric he's got a good agents. Yeah that that they could bill that were eleventh hour to get. More money out of Alabama so I don't know that I am ready to say Nick Saban as a guy not seen other reports say nets signed sealed -- delivered all -- signed sealed and delivered. I don't think that case I think you're right that the the people that are making these decisions and we kind of -- decision with -- if you will I think they feel very confident about it now -- -- had to be be fair here you know I just that little edge on top of the a source of mine but ten minutes ago and I'm still here in the Mac. It's gonna try to fight this until the end now will it matter. I don't know the other I think there are some people above Mac you know. Double double this thing that the want change and can probably make that happen if they want to that I don't think Mack Brown is going to go away. Make it he's yield on the people who make that that final decision that final call Texas State where dictates it's time to make it changed I think it's gonna happen. But I don't know which will be. Am days the other names out there what's -- and a lot of moves Harding made no other school it's a coming out saying you know like what they have him be able -- summon it and now -- Was a guy that it's a well excuse me notes estate you know if you think -- a guy that knows them the state of Texas and has been successful to. It's a program to Houston Baylor thought -- but he recently got expected so I guess to party who would the only shot list maybe one or two other names. And what's the timetable a school like Texas having that little fickle thing and now. Yeah that's right the detectives is not going to want this thing to drag out you know there very long what if Texas has its way. They would have -- things soda sown up may be open about next week is what we are now. Will that happen or not there will be bumps in the road but -- you've been to a lot that the names that that have been rumored that Texas would like to go after it means. You know they're not that -- you for the topped all cheered -- it's not wild he just signed an extension gospel songs got one home table. Jim both pitchers got an extension he decide we've heard his name. Yeah we've heard a couple big time NFL openings even guys you like our problems and Texas. But even possibly throughout -- to those guys have been if you do that you're talking with mid January so the other name we heard in. He makes Celek the pipe dream on serve as we've heard that the Pirates and Texas are really enamored with a guy like Urban Meyer so. You know is that they're there has shoot for the stars here whatever happens you know but it -- -- you know -- -- start with Nick Saban. If that falls through then I think he's teaching these other guys coming to play and David -- Stanford would be another one but a lot of these guys Texas has talked about or talked. You know has talked about going after. Other we've mentioned Mike -- on our problem those guys enjoyable maturity and excitement that there's. Talk of Nick Saban and -- Nick Saban have a contract extension in front of them that he has not yet -- have a lot of got the signed contract extensions so. Texas didn't go in with pretty significant buyout on most of them. Now Jason I'm not gonna go along Lamar pardon. You know he kind of a thing in Mack Brown. You know turn around -- program -- because you know they beat Oklahoma. When I look at Texas the -- -- acceptable. That they just completed another regular season that didn't meet expectations obviously is sitting architect that your eight or. I know he had a wanted to starting QB Oklahoma but whatever department lately lately how lopsided a late season losses vocalist needed Baylor. So it has to be an acceptable in all of those the big dogs at Texas you -- a big dogs -- should demand. To be there you know and you're out I mean it just comes with the territory Texas there's no reason because the resource that they should be in the top five. Every year I now look at Mack Brown I appreciate what he did. And the 2005 national championship he looks at 2009 though. And that title appearance. I mean he's thirtieth 218 and eighteen and seventeen in the big twelve. -- bought it -- that was happening with less miles at -- -- You have been long goal -- -- -- a whole lot more pressure is that it does go with the flow that's honestly how Mack Brown could survive considering he's still got to play. Art into trouble -- who knows if that that that that could be a bullet out. This Kabila to that he with a couple you know threw three nasty losses down the stretch about accurate -- Peyton four's not bad that you can get bio that one maybe two years we were caught -- a four year run here. Texas hasn't been able to you know that -- the start -- -- 2010 with a five and seven year you know they've made. Gradual steps. Well coming off a factor disastrous year. But -- thought and even Mack Brown said before this season Nate this is the year they thought they have a chance to really not just compete for the big twelve they thought they have a chance that. To win a ball. Maybe compete for a national championship -- think they'll right now we have a candidate for in that take the four losses against BYU. Only yes. Oklahoma State in -- and all of blowout losses none of those games were even close. So that leaves a bad taste in your Malkin in this and those losses against Oklahoma State and Baylor I think for most people trump everything else that Texas did this year with a six game winning streak in. Coming back from a bad start but. Then they got to think about this okay. Yes it's Peyton -- it's not terrible but it's the fourth year in a row kind of mediocrity and below texas' standards. What happens next year Mack Brown comes back then and I don't know if you look at the roster this team -- that it's going to be any better connection wasn't here. Want them to come back next year they start off you know whatever two and Juan. Three into. They're gonna have a whole another season of just unhappiness and in the people want Mack -- not gonna want to wait for the rest of the year -- so. I think this is the decision that probably have to be made. I think Mack Brown to make that decision for itself I can't imagine matched his wife has been and we want to go through another year potentially mediocrity answer -- -- questions and these pressures and you know just people people down in the one run and out of town. I think he goes down now he doesn't gracefully bowed out of the Mac will be remembered as the legendary coach in at the University of Texas as he should which -- -- this -- get ugly. You know these last few days but you know we'll see where. Where it goes back to problem and I think. He -- -- -- come -- but I think objectively if you could actually step away from the whole picture I think even you know I think most objective people say hey it's it's probably time for a change. Jason -- people covering the Texas football program at the hot. News information and sports right now what what happened with Texas coach Mack brown and not if he does move lately -- it's a coach.
