MACK BROWN HAS SEEN WHAT CANNOT BE SEEN

USA TODAY Sports

QUESTION HIM NOT, FOR HE HAS THE GIFT

Mack Brown is a lot of things. A champion first, sure. A man of wealth and taste, undoubtedly. A molder of young men. A community leader.

But beyond all that, there's one hat Mack Brown wears that really sets him apart from his peers.

A SAYER OF SOOTHS. Mack Brown didn't snag Robert Griffin III because he foresaw the young man's eventual knee injuries. Mack Brown fully intended for David Ash to get his lunch handed to him against Oklahoma. It's called lighting a fire. Mack Brown had visions of Big Tex's smoke-filled demise. That's also called lighting a fire.

Mack Brown has seen his own death. He knows he cannot change it, and so he embraces it. If anything, he eats more 7-11 taquitos now. Which one will be the fateful snack to lodge in his trachea when he's alone one night? None of them. All of them. Mack Brown is ready, because Mack Brown knows it's a high-character taquito that will end him.
