Does anybody care? Texas didn't have a clue at the end of Saturday's Big 12 title game against Nebraska. The Longhorns, who still had a timeout in hand, were walking around without purpose as time ticked off the clock and nearly lost the game.
While officials were sorting it out, Pete Thamel of the New York Times wrote on his Twitter page: "If there's no time left. This would be the biggest coaching blunder in college football history."Nonetheless, the clueless Mack Brown is taking his Longhorns to the BCS title game. This is the second-best team in the land? Unreal.
Next to unbelievable was Lisa Salters' postgame interview with Brown.
The college football world was waiting for the questions: Coach, can you explain the clock mismanagement at the end? Were you saving that timeout for the BCS title game?
Somehow, Salters failed to ask the questions.
Instead, viewers got a series of softballs:
What were you thinking when the field goal went up?
I saw you say something to the kicker. What were you saying to him?
Why did your offense struggle so much tonight?
Where do you think you'll be ranked?
Are you friggin' kidding me?!? There is Brown, at his most vulnerable moment when he hasn't had a chance to prepare an answer, and no question about the clock? Fail! Fail! Fail!
Update: I've added a cleaner video of the controversial play.
