    Sugiura: New UNC coach Mack Brown on his return, Georgia Tech, recruiting Atlanta
    Poll included.

    Voted "Meh". I don't dislike him like I do Cut(block)cliff, but I don't think he's all that either. I'm worried that he's a good coach that will take all of the talent that goes to UNC and turn the Cheaters into our new Duke (the team we should beat but don't.)

    Not at all pleased that he is back. Yeah, he is old but he can recruit at a place that is perfectly willing to do shady stuff. To me, UNC is a bigger threat going forward than VT, perhaps on par with Miami as far as who we're going to have to beat to win our division. Not right away, necessarily, but in the coming years.

    He was a terrible TV announcer. His voice tone and inflection are not pleasing to the ear.

    I think North Carolina will be looking for another head football coach in December 2021 when they fire Mack Brown after he has three straight losing seasons.

    Mack Brown would have done well in politics. The guy knows how to charm a room, and is the ultimate "CEO coach". Never says anything bad about any coach or team if asked.

    On the football side of things, he hit a homerun with Jay Bateman his DC. His OC is a bit of mixed bag, but it's an offense that recruits like.

    He's going to be a thorn in our side on the recruiting trail as long as he's at UNC.

    I hope that's true! Is it because he's old, or just because he's a terrible TV announcer?

    Well he has really upped the UNC recruiting which is a big deal especially with Collins because he is going to snag some of our targets. Otherwise I don't have specific ill will toward him, but I really dislike UNC football overall. Serial underperformers with little tradition, underwhelming fan support, annoying snack talkers, and frustratingly snagged some games from us (see: 2014). Also, Fedora was a huge whiner. He was Cutcliffe but hadn't earned the right to be. Mack? Seems generally affable but apparently left a lot of skeletons in the closet when he left Texas. Doesn't give me the outright shady vibe that Kirby does, but if he's going to push the rules at UNC, I'm sure I'll grow to hate.

    I think the game has totally passed Mack Brown by and North Carolina paid a bundle for what he's done in the past at North Carolina and Texas.

    I'm in the meh category. I think the game has slightly passed him by, and he got a bit complacent at UT. He or his staff really missed the boat at QB after Colt McCoy graduated.

    He seemed a bit overwhelmed when he saw what he was going to face at Clemson when CPJ started talking facts.

    Probably will be good for fundraising and culture building (potentially) but I'm still not sold on the CEO head coach model.

    Think he won at Tulane (?) before going to unc.

    Then he won at unc before winning at Texas.

    But trying to recall how a HC has done when returning to a previous stop. Can't remember a scenario quite like this.

    Dislike. Blatant cheater. Only reason more o' y'all don't hate him is because of his "Gee aw shucks" demeanor. Make no mistake, that man is a scumbag.

    Fair enough. I think my "meh" was as much "Is he still alive?" as anything? :LOL:

    Petrino did ok until he lost his Heisman winner. But probably should've done better considering what he had?

    Mack is a crook. Hope he fails miserably at UNCheat.

    Great recruiter. Not much on X's and O's. Probably not as good as the last time he was at UNC. He did make UNC better, but he's not the home run hire they could have made.
