Mack Brown, On Mic

Always quotable Texas coach Mack Brown sounded off on the Longhorn Network, quarterbacks and last season's struggles at Big 12 Media Days.

Texas coach Mack Brown, on the problem with paring down the quarterback race too quickly

"If nobody's playing well, and you throw two (quarterbacks) out, you might be throwing the best one out."

On the Longhorn Network

"If somebody pays you $300 million, they're going to ask for some access."

On what he's looking for in a quarterback

"The No. 1 thing that we want is leadership. We want somebody that can get the swagger back and make sure the rest of the kids know that this person is going to lead them to victory."

On the Texas administration and regents in the formation of the Longhorn Network

"What an unbelievable thing they did. I think you have to give them credit. It was available to everybody, and they pulled it off. I didn't think they could do it ... I never dreamed that it would happen."

On last season's woes

"My wife said that most hotels don't even have a 13th floor, and that was my 13th year, so I should have skipped it. Some people thought I did."
