The Red Sox for so many years had to live with the Curse of the Bambino. Could UNC Football have its own jinx, theirs being the Curse of coach Mack Brown? We all remember when the former Carolina coach headed for the greener pastures of Texas University. Many fans blame the slide of the gridiron program on the fact that the school was not able to keep coach Mack in Chapel Hill. But that episode, which happened over a decade ago, is neither here or there any longer. On the other hand, with the Longhorns slipping for the past couple of seasons, could it be time for a change in personnel there? And if so, could Texas come knocking once again at the door steps of Kenan Stadium for their new head coach? By all means nothing of this is being talked about in the main stream media (or any blogs I have seen), but you have to wonder how much longer will a program like Texas watch has its football program falters. Without a doubt a program like the one in Darrell K Royal–Texas Memorial Stadium can get pretty much any head coach they desire, but you have to admit, bringing in someone like Fedora, who loves the high scoring/high intensity offense, would make the fan base pretty excited and rejuvenate the atmosphere there. Especially after having gone 11 and 15 in conference play in the past three seasons, and beginning 2013 with a 1 and 2 record, it is not a stretch to believe that coach Mack Brown is close to being on the hot seat. I highly doubt he will still be with the Longhorns if this season is once again sub-par. As we have seen in the two off seasons coach Fedora can recruit, and in a place like UT, where the blue chipper are much easier to reel in, being able to run that program, if offered, would be tough to refuse. The reality for now is that the next step for North Carolina is to get to the echelon of the Atlantic Coast Conference, which seems still far away for the Tar Heels. While for Texas it’s to get back to what they were less than a decade ago, when they beat USC to win the national title behind the excellent performance of Vince Young. Meaning, that like it or not, even if the Heels program might be on the upswing, while the Longhorns are not, the Texas program is still a better looking job at this moment. Hopefully this does not happen, since right now the UNC Football program seems to be headed in the right direction. However in the musical chair world of coaching you never know what will happen from one year to the next, and that should be scaring the Carolina fan base.
