Mack Brown has cooled down from his postgame tirade ... well, as close to Mack Brown gets to a tirade Saturday, but the message hasn't changed much. Jimmy Burch relays that Brown was still talking about needing to be able to trust his staff and players in his media session Monday.â†µ
"If you're coaching a position, and your position's not playing well every week, I can't trust that you're doing a good job of coaching," Brown said. "If one of your guys is playing bad, I can change him. If three of your guys are playing bad, I've got to change you."â†µ
"That's what we're paying for," Brown said. "I can handle a loss if we are playing with passion and busting our tails and mess some things up. Right now, I don't trust all the kids, that they will [give maximum effort]. Because they haven't shown that ability. Therefore, you don't trust the assistant coach if his guy's not playing well because it's his responsibility to get the guy to play well."â†µ
Brown will see whether his message has been received Saturday night, as the Longhorns host #25 Baylor.
