ESPN’s Pat Forde followed Mack Brown throughout the day of the Longhorn’s season-opener against Rice, a game the Longhorns won 34-17.
You can watch the All-Access video of Brown’s hotel speech and his post-game candid thoughts right here.
Interestingly, after a sub-par performance, Brown asked the team, "How much do you like being at Texas and like being a football player?”
He added, “Some of you like being at Texas more than you've earned the right to be here. I was embarrassed for myself. I was embarrassed for some of my coaches, not all. I was embarrassed for some of you players, not all. … It was kind of embarrassing.”
"Boy, I'm scared. I'm worried about this team. I'm worried about it. We've got some entitlement in this room. Got to get that fixed. Got some selfishness in this room. Got to get that fixed. This isn't Texas football.”
Texas is on the road at Texas Tech this Saturday night. Kick-off is set for 8:00 pm EST.
