UNC Alumni/Fans - How Do You Feel About Mack Brown?

5 posts in this topic

Is there a part of you that is enjoying his demise in Texas? I was a kid when he was at UNC, but I had so many great memories of his teams here and I wouod consider that the best period of UNC football in my lifetime. I remember winning games on primetime/national tv and them doing interviews with Dre Bly afterwards. It's the last time I remember being consistently good in football and being ranked in the top 25.

Tbh, I liked multiple teams growing up, but thst was the first team that I felt proud of as far as UNC football goes, so naturally I was pissed when Brown left. So, yes... Yes, I am delighting somewhat in his downfall at Texas now.

My friend who is a UNC fan, still to this day, will only refer to him as "Traitor Brown". Tucked tail and ran because he couldn't beat Florida State. Of course I think it the very next year NCSU stunned the world and beat FSU. Thank you Torry Holt.

I don't blame him one bit. I was miffed and upset that he left UNC when he did, but now that i'm older and can see things in a different light, I understand what he did and why he did it. UNC was never going to be considered a national title contender in football, ever. We're labeled as a basketball school. His record the last 2 years, we had double digit wins and even finished ranked 4th, and we were invited to the Gator Bowl. The nation and media had no respect for UNC football, and you gotta remember, he was at UNC at the same time as the guy who was the basketball coach, I think his name was, Smith? Dean Smith? yeah. Why stay at a school that's obviously going to always be second fiddle to basketball and never be considered a nat'l title contender when you can go to a "football" school like Texas and win a nat'l title and be a contender year in and year out. Not so much the past couple of years, but still.

TL:DR - Mack did what he thought best for himself and family, I don't blame him one bit for leaving.

Brown is a good coach, but I do believe he's done everything he can possibly do at Texas. There is a legitimate chance he's gone after this season. Don't blame him for leaving UNC, either. Because he did about as much there as he could do at the time. 

 

Something about him that bugs me though is he appears to be a bit too "old school."

 

He's one of the few big time coaches who is against a BCS playoff system and was against a B12 title game. He's also been inclined to be a jerk. The salary thing a few years ago. The infamous urban legend regarding he and Steve Spurrier while Spurrier was in Durham. He's also one of the highest ranking coaches in amateur football. That and being very opinionated can sometimes rub people the wrong way. PLUS his recruiting of skill position players has dropped off significantly. 

 

I do think it's safe to say that his days are numbered in Austin and there is an article floating around ESPN & NBC that Texas is sniffing around Saban. Brown, if fired, would have a job in a week if he wanted one. A lot of people at UNC (not me) would probably take him back in a heart beat. FTR - I am not a Larry Fedora fan.

I was excited about Fedora initially, but the luster is wearing off. Dude could give a crap less about defense, and it is killing us.

    • @Panthro Proving Medical Malpractice Based on Diagnostic Errors The law does not hold doctors legally responsible for all diagnostic errors. Instead, patients usually must prove three things in order to prevail in a medical malpractice lawsuit based on a wrong diagnosis: A doctor-patient relationship existed. The doctor was negligent -- that is, did not provide treatment in a reasonably skillful and competent manner. The doctor's negligence caused actual injury to the patient. Most medical malpractice cases hinge on either the second or third element (or both) -- was the doctor negligent and did that negligence harm the patient?   Easily provable  1. ER dr saw mom and had all the records. Mom was healthy prior, no issues besides a murmur she was born with. 2. Motrin does dot fix the flu especially if you one has A and B. Greenville drs from ICU would testify against New Bern ER doc. No tamiflu prescribed nor any other treatment besides Motrin. (Anybody can take Tylenol/asprin but tamiflu is prescribed) 3. Without x raying or running further test, mom went from early caught flu to both pneumonia that now developed 3rd stage ARDS and now pulmonary fibrosis is setting in. Due this negligence, mom will live at most 5 years in poor quality will my dad ends bankrupt. I just proved how not properly treating mom has lead to a snowball effect due to incompetence which lead to where we are now. Dad was not given a course of action, he does not have a M.D. at the end of his name, and the hippocratic oath has been tarnished. I am in the settle or I will find out how he will lose his license. I will file a complaint with the hospital and board. Publish in the newspaper about his care and online. My mom will never be the same.
