Both Greg Davis and Duane Akina must go.
And if Brown is not able or willing to make those changes, then his tenure as head coach of the Longhorns should also end.
Yes, this was a ‘rebuilding year' for the Horns, but that does not excuse the absolutely horrific play at times from Brown's team, including today in the regular season finale. Arkansas State. Central Florida. Kansas State. Nebraska. Oklahoma State. Now A&M. This team has not been consistently prepared, and certainly not at a championship level.
The game versus the Aggies looked so familiar. It was the MO for the Horns all year, except, this time, Colt McCoy and Co. could not overcome the ineptitude of the coaching staff's preparation and game planning. Just as it was in ‘06, the Horns played the A&M game as if it were a game against a directional school.
A&M will fire its head coach in the next couple of days, yet that same coach for the Ags has now proven capable of besting Brown and his assistants in consecutive years when the Horns clearly had more talent than the team in Maroon and White. That is unacceptable, particularly given the fact that Brown and his assistants are among the highest paid in college football.
While Brown is a perfect fit for the Texas coaching job, he must also know that what has transpired over the final games of the 2006 and 2007 seasons is in no way acceptable. He must make changes on his staff that reflect a commitment to returning this program to a national championship level immediately. Greg Davis and Duane Akina must go. Now.
