Getting tired of the Mack Brown talk.

Getting tired of the Mack Brown talk. I am not holding my breath for him or anybody.

June Jones emerges to expose just what a fraud he is

June offers a vague interview with SI and basically admits he quit just to quit. Says he wasn't sleeping well. What college administrator in his or her right mind would hire someone who says they quit the last job because he wasn't sleeping well?

He says he was trying to do too much. But I can't imagine what that was. The guy went to Hawaii last year the week before national signing day. That isn't "working too hard" for a college coach, by definition. 

He says the SMU job " It will be tough for the next guy, too." If "tough" means expected to put in the average number of hours to be a college coach and hire a competent staff, then this job is "tough."

Only at SMU is a coach not required to justify a lack of results and vaguely respond that a job is hard without specifics and get away with it. 

June went to four bowl games, winning three, sent double digit number of kids to the NFL, a majority of which he inherited. His own success proves his statements wrong. His failures are at his feet, not SMU's.

Your buddy has a girlfriend....

... And they have dated for a long time.  She's good looking and great in almost every way. He complains about her constantly. In fact, lots of people in your circle have complained about her for years. Some of the complaints are nonsense; some have merit.  They finally break up. 

People start suggesting you should date her. But you have been listening to these complaints for years. Do you have reservations? Of course. 

And people wonder why SMU may be reluctant to hire Mack Brown .

Mack Brown for $4M per Year.

Supposedly SMU would pay Mack Brown $4M pet year for 8 years. Nonsense.

In a word: Bullshit. 

This isn't true. 

Put all the pluses and minuses of Mack Brown aside for a moment. SMU is where it is today staring an O'fer season in the face because it overcommitted to a coach with a contract neither party could get out of even though one or both parties wanted out for 3 years. Does anyone really believe SMU would commit 8 years to anybody? 

This report is a waste of valuable bandwidth that could be better spent on more useful things like cat videos or Tinder hookups.
