My fellow Texas Longhorns we have a coach in waiting in Mr. Muschamp.  Sounds wonderful but how long does he have to wait?  Coach Brown seems like he could easily go another ten years and Muschamp is in his prime?  I mean what is it, the security of a knowing you will become the head coach one day (But, when?) or is he just not ready to take on the whole job as head coach?  Whatever the case is I know the money is right for him.  I just had a thought of interest...I was wondering if the NCAA could petition the United State Government to "BAIL" out all of the "Non-Money Generating" sports at every major Unveristy in the country and input a "Financial Stimulus Package" to pay the individual players?  Just would like hear some feedback on this or any other perspectives.

The Future of University of Texas Football

I'm not even going to go into the gov't bail-out scenario, but I will comment on Mr. Muschamp. I believe he sticks around as long as it takes. He is being groomed by the best ie: winningest CFB coach in the BCS era. He is going to be taking over for one of the top 5 CFB teams of all time. That being said Austin is without a doubt the BEST CFB city around. I live in Waco and work in Austin and I am sure you are already well aware that if you are associated with the team in any way you are treated like royalty (well so long as things are going well with the team). I believe Muschamp will have many offers trying to pull him away for head coaching jobs elsewhere, but I think his job security that he KNOWS he has and the opportunity to coach one of the best programs around will be too much. Mack will school him in all the areas he is lacking and he will have some of the best staff in the country around him as well to help him along. I don't see how anyone with any football sense could throw that offer to the side for more money (which he will eventually get anyway) and most assuredly a lesser team. Muschamp I believe is here to stay and I look forward to having the triumvirate of Mack Brown at AD Muschamp as HC and a former Longhorn standout Major Applewhite at OC. Things are looking up UT fans so get ready for another great 10+ years of football.
