Mack Brown has first world problems

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

The embattled Texas coach has trotted out an inventive new excuse for his team's struggles this season.

In his weekly press conference on Monday, Mack Brown made a splash with some interesting comments about his responsibilities with the Longhorn Network:

"I didn't ask for it," Brown said Monday, noting he's worried that the six hours a week he spends taping three television shows and the network's access to the first 30 minutes of daily practice may tip opposing coaches to player injuries, tendencies and schemes.

On second thought, this might actually be more of a humble brag: "I would be able to put a program in place that could compete with OU, but I've been too busy making appearances on my own TV network."

But what's really revealing is Brown's paranoia about his opponents gleaming information on injuries and game-plans from LHN programming. Everything they need to know about Texas football is on display weekly on ABC and ESPN.

Maybe Art Briles needed to watch an edited broadcast of the first eight minutes of a Longhorns practice to realize that the Texas defense couldn't tackle worth a damn ... or maybe he just needed to watch the first eight minutes of their game with OU.
