Mack Brown: Outhit, outhustled, outcoached in all 3 phases. Totally unacceptable at Texas.

Mack Brown was pretty much miserable today during his press conference. He spoke the hard truth and put the blame on himself and his assistants.

Brown started by saying, “We got outhit, outhustled, outcoached in all three phases. Totally unacceptable at Texas.” 

“You want to play hard. Texas football teams play hard. If you don’t, it’s on me and our assistant coaches. We get paid for getting them ready. That’s our job.”

“I didn’t get them ready. Assistants get them ready. It’s a shame. It’s been a long time around here since I didn’t think we played with passion for 60 minutes.” 

“We lost three turnovers for the 2nd week in a row. We didn’t make our first and third down efficiency. We looked discouraged and we didn’t play to the end. We missed 15 tackles for 92 yards. We had 18 missed assignments. We only forced 2 turnovers. Special teams are supposed to create field position, make big plays, and regain momentum, and we didn’t do any of them. We didn’t answer all day.”

“One of the worst things you can do as a coach is have 12 on the field. We had 12 on the field on defense and special teams. It was probably the worst we’ve been on punt block & return since we’ve been here.”

“You don’t forget, you move forward. I’ve told the kids whatever you read this week will be fair.” 

“We’ve only lost back-to-back games 4 times in 13 years. We’re lucky Saturday wasn’t a conference game. With OU this weekend, we have to get back to work. The biggest think is they are +8 in the turnover margin and we are -3.”
