Almost 10 years of Mack Brown at Texas


This is the 3rd post in the “Ticket Stub” series (click here and here for the first 2).

This is the ticket stub from Mack Brown’s first game as head coach of THE University of Texas. The game was won easily by Texas, 66-36 and was for the most part not very memorable outside of being Brown’s first game at the helm.

Next year will be the 10th year of Mack’s tenure at the 40 Acres and while he has raised the program to national prominence, and even won a national title, questions still linger in regards to his ability to coach. That he is a fine recruiter as any is beyond question, but can he coach?

Without further ado I step aside to what I think is a well-written and accurate post on the Mack Brown Era at Texas,
“Welcome Back My Friends to the Show That Never Ends”

Yes I know this ticket stub has seen better days, it suffered at the hands of an overzealous gate person.

We recently moved and as it sometimes happens you find stuff you forgot you had.

I found a bag of old ticket stubs from events I attended in years past. I scanned them and hope to create a series of posts.

This one is from my freshman year at Texas from a game which the ‘Horns won on a last second 50 yard field goal (against a treacherous Central Texas wind) as time expired by Phil Dawson (now with the Cleveland Browns).

This was my first thrill of many as a UT fan. This game also marked the first and last time I attended a UT football game alone, though after Dawson’s kick cleared the uprights I hugged a lot of people I didn’t know and probably never saw again at UT.

Notice the ticket price, anyone know how much this type of ticket would fetch now?
