AUSTIN, Texas – Mack Brown says he does his best to ignore all the speculation about his future as the Texas football coach.
He wants no part of any discussion about whether his job is on the line when the Longhorns play rival Oklahoma in Dallas on Saturday at the Cotton Bowl.
Any talk in Austin about the biggest game on the Longhorns' schedule inevitably comes around to whether it's "win or else" for Brown after 16 seasons.
Brown says he's tuning all that out this week as Texas (3-2, 2-0 Big 12) prepares for the No. 12 Sooners (5-0, 2-0). He says the coaching staff and players haven't given up yet on their goal of winning the Big 12 and the winner Saturday will be in prime position as conference leader.
