Is it an attempt to gain a little integrity into their athletic program?

A long time ago. But I’ve changed, you’ve changed... let’s give it another run. Oh and we don’t even make our kids go to school here anymore so there’s that”

This won’t be popular to many of my Tigernet brethren but I like Mac Brown. Except when he plays us, I’ll hope him the best.


Surprising. Guessing he's a young 67

One site had three candidates: Brown, Gene Chizik and Tony Elliot. I know which one I'd pick. Thankfully, it doesn't appear they're that smart.


Guess that classes will be optional again!!!

I don’t know what to be happy about the most:
1). That I don’t have to listen to his inane yammering as a color commentator.
2). Even if he somehow hires a quality staff, he’ll be there what, 4-5 years because of his age? This seems like a really big recruiting win.

I mean, it’s peak “we don’t know what to do here” from UNC’s administration.

Great recruiter if anything else, if he is able to lock down North Carolina that could hurt us.

You should never chalk up to conspiracy what you can reliably attribute to stupidity. Because stupidity is a much more powerful force in the course of human events.


except the whole poor recruiting thing his final years at UT***

talent he had at Texas he's also the most underachieving coach of the last 30 years. Has won 67% of his games and his last 4 years at Texas were a disaster. UNC has decided to go the SCar route and offer a retirement plan to an aging coach who no longer has the fire to win, ala Holtz and Spurrier.

My guess is he reached out to them and offered to coach his first few years for free until they pay off Fedora.


Brown hired. Next question for AD is

Who will actually coach and relate to the players?

The young guys will relate to Mack Brown just fine...as long as they are happy to hear the same stories over and over again about how good Vince Young was.

I would expect Gene Chizik to be hired as the head coach in waiting. Should go as smoothly as the Muschump head coach in waiting at Texas went.

Wow, the coach looked really lost in his last year at Texas, like dementia kind of lost. I don't know about this decision...


You can’t fix stupid. Not that Mack is, just the hire.***

What do they have to lose? Can't get much worse. He

can hire some young coordinators like Kingsbury for the offense.

All of us old guys think we still have value to offer. I have no problems with Mac, other than his grating voice.

He will hire a well above average staff and will give us fits in NC in recruiting. Good thing we have a strong line of success that attracts talent!

Btw - I agree, Kingsbury would be a fabulous OC!!!

You will see an immediate improvement in this Tarhole squad.

Wow.. what an awful hire. I think just listening to him during games on ESPN


Posted: Nov 26, 2018 12:01 PM
 

is enough reason to not hire him. The guy sounds like a dope... plus he's old and washed at this point.


you youngsters may not remember


Posted: Nov 26, 2018 1:39 PM
 

Mack had back to back 1-10 seasons his first two years in Chapel Hill in the late 1980's..

with the personnel on campus he may have a repeat performance


FWIW he is 2 months older than Nick Saban


i think it's a good hire... he will be strictly CEO


Posted: Nov 26, 2018 1:50 PM
 

they'll go out and get two young, really good coordinators who will run the show... and he'll eventually turn it over to one of them.

Sort of like that old sweater that you haven't worn in a decade that you pull from the back of the closet. It's still comfortable and a good fit, but people are still laughing behind your back at how old and worn you look.
