This latest edition of the Red River Massacre brought to you by Bob Stoops but made possible through a grant by the Mack Brown Group, may finally be what puts Teflon Brown in t-r-o-u-b-l-e, Travis Tritt style.
Despite all of his success - a national title, another title game appearance - what we are seeing over the last two-plus years is a ticket to make those accomplishments feel like 50 years ago rather than four or five.
A 63-21 loss against the Sooners today in Dallas is as apt for the Longhorn faithful to say "Enough!" for the first time since Mack arrived in Austin to turn the program into a national, cash-cow monster.
Mack has filled the coffers, but he is not filling the win column of late.
Since finishing 13-1 in 2009 and losing to Alabama in the title game, the Horns are ...
Running 2-plus season total: 17-14
The Horns lost a total of 14 games from 2002 to 2009.
This is what we call a trend.
Saturday's beatdown at the Cotton Bowl by the Sooners was another piece of evidence of how lacking Texas has become. They are not good enough.
The Horns routinely land top 10 recruiting classes, but no team with all of that alleged talent can lose 14 games in three seasons. Every program has a dip, but this is beginning to feel a lot more than just a slip.
Despite his recent contract exentsion that should ensure every Mack Brown family member is taken care of forever, this may be the time he finally feels it.
