Mack Brown is the most successful football coach the University of Texas has had since Darrell Royal retired in 1976. He built great teams from 2004-09 that played with confidence, resolve and swagger.
It was Jimmy Johnson who told his University of Miami teams, "Play it like champions. Play it with poise. You get down, you get back up. You get them down, you play like Hurricanes."
Texas had gotten away from so many of the things that made it elite under Mack Brown. That's why, after two down years, fixing the Longhorns' psyche is still Brown's priority.
