AUSTIN, Texas --The confetti still lingered.
The shine was still bright.
And the memories were only moments old when Mack Brown began thanking people.
This was the Texas coach's moment. His team had just won the school's first national championship in more than three decades. Thousands had helped Brown get to where he was.
It has been a decade since Mack Brown signed a juco player, but with new coaches and needs to fill, Texas is showing more interest in these prospects.
