Mack Brown, AD and president to speak at football banquet

Well this should be interesting if noting else. With the college football keeping a close eye on the developments out of Austin, Texas, Texas head coach Mack Brown will speak at a football banquet tonight. Surely this is nothing out of the ordinary. Why wouldn’t a head coach speak to the football players at a football banquet?

What comes off a little odd, at least at first glance, is the news reported by The Dallas Morning News that new athletic director Steve Patterson, former athletic director DeLoss Dodds and university president Bill Powers are all scheduled to speak at the football banquet. In fairness, this may not be out of the ordinary either. It is somewhat expected for an athletic director to at least make a brief statement and appearance at most sports banquets, and for a program as valuable as the Texas football program it probably is not all that unheard of for the university president to be on hand either.

So what does this all mean? Is this any sign that Brown has reached the end fo the line? Probably not by itself. The speculation continues to be out there that Brown is coaching his final game when Texas faces Oregon in the Alamo Bowl. But the news that the school’s AD, president and former AD are also speaking does not seem to carry enough weight to suggest this is the final curtain call for Brown.

Regardless, the Mack Brown watch continues.

    Yeah it is not often that millions of people, give or take, wonder what will be said at a football banquet. If he is staying, it seems like they would say so soon.

    Maybe Saban is being paged again at Austin International Airport haha

    The Longhorn Network is broadcasting the 2013 Longhorn Awards right now. Looks like a banquet to me. It’s shown in the program guide as “new”, but not “live”. Is this the banquet or something else?
