He was on the Herd today getting interviewed, and he went on and on about how stupid the Big 12's tiebreaking procedures and how he "wishes the Big 12 would get with the times like the SEC and institute head-to-head as the tiebreaker rather than BCS ranking".
And this wasn't just a slip up in passing, as he kept going back to it all throughout the interview about how the SEC has it right with their head to head tiebreaker and the Big 12 is stupid for not having one. Then, he went even further by saying that "if we just did it like the SEC none of this would matter, because we beat Oklahoma so we would go to the Big 12 Championship game".
Apparently he forgot about this little school called Texas Tech, that could use the same argument against them, and about this little school called Oklahoma, who could use this same argument against Tech. And apparently he also forgot about how the SEC was staring this exact same scenario right in the face a couple years ago (or it might have even been last year).
I'll be the first to say that I hate the political crap. Does Mack Brown not have anything better to do? I sware this guy does a phone interview during half of the games and half of the cf shows. Its been bad over the last 3 years or so, and it seems that Brown has set the bar even higher this year.
My argument in this is why is Tech even in the argument. Outside of the Texas win, they're next best win is probably....Nebraska(?). OU and UT are clearly "better/more deserving" in terms of their sched/results. So if the argument is between OU and UT, head-to-head should far outway the "we beat the team that beat you" argument (especially if youre a playoff proponent).
