In the immortal words of the Counting Crows singing the immortal words of Joni Mitchell: Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got ’till it’s gone?
That’s how one enterprising Texas football enthusiast evidently felt after Saturday’s Orange-White Game. A website called “I Miss Mack Brown” (located at imissmack.com, natch) has been making the rounds among Longhorns on social media this week. A banner at the top of the page reads “I watched the Texas game this weekend and was left with an unshakable feeling …” followed by an illustration that reads, well, you can probably guess.
The other half of the page sells “I Miss Mack” T-Shirts in both men’s and women’s sizes for $20. (“Guaranteed delivery by the start of the 2014 season opener versus North Texas,” the site promises.)
Who’s behind this coach-centric elegy? The site doesn’t say, and there’s no contact information to be found. A look into the domain registration shows that it was created the day of the spring practice game, but there’s no insight into who runs the site (and thus, no insight into what actually inspired the site’s creation).
Did the maiden voyage of the Charlie Strong era leave you crestfallen enough to wear a T-shirt about it? Do you know who’s behind this online ode to Mack Brown? Let us know.
