Big 12 football: Will Mack Brown still be the Texas football coach come next week?

“It's crazy to think about where we've come from, especially at 1-2,” said center Dominic Espinosa. “Obviously, it was dark. We were down there. I think it's crazy to think about the opportunity we have in front of us now.” 

All while losing a variety of key players to injury and constant talk about Mack's job status. Even now, Nick Saban-to-Austin whispers won't die.

“What I've learned is, this place helps you focus on your job and not worry about all the stuff around it,” Mack said. “That gets you in trouble. What I've learned is, my job is to try to win the game on Saturday and keep these guys focused and keep our coaches focused. The rest of it is really unimportant.” 

Again, that's not true. But if this is Mack's final year, he can leave with his head held high.
