Greg Robinson, last seen being run out of football by a Mississippi State offense led by Chris Relf, was named defensive coordinator of Texas on Sunday, replacing Manny Diaz, who was run out of Texas by a BYU offense led by a quarterback who had 376 career rushing yards in 6 games before dropping 259 on Texas.  Obviously, this is an unusual situation, but everyone involved is trying to make the best of it. From Mack Brown: "We’re very fortunate that Greg has been around, watched all of our practice video and has a good scouting report moving forward. His familiarity with the staff and players should make for a smooth transition. He knows this place, did a terrific job in leading our defense before, and I’m excited to have him back on the field." From Greg Robinson: "Coach Brown has been wonderful to me. I’ll do anything I can to help him, so when he called, I told him I’d be there (Sunday). I know the staff, have a lot of respect for them and am excited for the challenge moving forward. I’ve been around the team a lot, watched all of their film and have been self scouting and scouting opponents since I came on board in July. Because of Longhorn Network, I’ve also been able to see these guys for two to three years and am very familiar with the personnel." Not sure if it's more amazing that Greg Robinson is now the defensive coordinator at Texas again or that he gets the Longhorn Network.  But, as you might expect, despite having a channel that so few have, he's a little behind as far as everything goes: Then there's DB Quandre Diggs on new DC Greg Robinson: "He's behind, so we have to continue to teach him the things we know." — Mike Finger (@mikefinger) September 11, 2013 Ignoring what Texas defenders do and do not know, just what all is Robinson behind on as his first game back at Texas approaches?  Pretty sure this list covers it all: 1.  Names of players 2.  Terminology 3.  A defense that finished in the top 50 in scoring or total defense in the last 8 seasons 4.  Seriously, his defenses since 2005 look like this:      -Michigan 2010:      110 (total)     108 (scoring)      -Michigan 2009:       82                  77      -Syracuse 2008:     101               101      -Syracuse 2007:     111                104      -Syracuse 2006:     107                 72      -Syracuse 2005:      57                  67 5.  Play sheet lamination techniques 6.  Mack Brown's favorite coffee blend 7.  Moving into his new office (seriously, Diaz, get your Gator Bowl crap out of there) 8.  Parking ("Look, I told you yesterday, I don't have my mirror hanger thing yet. They said they'd have it this week.  All I have is this temporary permit.  No, don't have a university ID either, supposed to get it when I get the parking hanger.  Just call the office again and ask about me.") 9.  Chris Relf 10.  The forward pass 11.  The kinda sideways pass 12.  The backwards pass 13.  Where the quarterback just sorta runs it 14.  Breaking Bad (so help him, if you spoil it for him, he'll gonna force you to punt every six possessions) 15.  1st down 16.  2nd down 17.  3rd down (just kidding, it will never even come to this down) 17.  Any form of the run 18.  "Wait, what?  Explain packaged plays to me again." 19.  "For real?  They can run plays that have three or four options for the quarterback?" 20.  "And they go fast now?" 21.  "What happened to real, American football?" /BERTdar goes off in Fayetteville /sticks his nose (non-hog hat nose) in the air, followed by a finger "An ally is on the ground.  We must find him for our cause." /Samford scores a touchdown to take a 21-17 lead in film review "Dammit.  Gotta talk about this first.  HOLD ON, GREG.  HOLD ON FOR LIFE, BUDDY.  I'LL BE THERE SOON."
