The Longhorns 2012 football season has been anything but a breeze, despite the shiny 7-2 record through its first nine games.
That said, after winning by the skin of its teeth or losing embarrassingly all year, quarterback David Ash finally put together a great game – as did Browns’s defense and running game – in winning a tough road contest at a ranked Texas Tech squad.
However, instead of putting on a happy face and chatting up a few reporters about his up-and-coming young squad, Brown sounded more old and crotchety than ever on Monday afternoon.
After taking far too much time out of his schedule to complain about the Longhorns Network earlier in the season, Brown, without being prompted, took ever more time away from game planning for Iowa State to tell the world that the Big 12 probably should take a look at how disrespectful the upside-down horns makes him feel.
“The horns down is disrespectful,” Mack Brown said. “We ought to talk about that as a league.” #ut

If Brown is so offended by simple taunting on the part of a heated rival such as Oklahoma, perhaps he should consider beating them on the football field.
So bemused are a few of the Sooners with Brown’s worries, defensive end R.J. Washington did not hesitate to call it as he saw it:
“It sounds like Texas whining, like they’re always whining.”
You said it, Washington, not me. Of course, if Brown is becoming too sensitive for the sport in his old age, perhaps it might be time to look into a tamer, softer sport, far away from the battle on the gridiron.
We may not know much over here at Oklahoma Gamedayr, but we do know a few things.
One of those is that should Brown decide to take up yoga or Tai-Chi, he had better not do it anywhere near Norman, because the upside-down horns run just as deep in Oklahoma as ancient exercise techniques run across the world.
