Former Texas running back, Heisman Trophy winner and NFL Hall-of-Famer Earl Campbell thinks it's time for Texas and Mack Brown to part ways.
"Nobody likes to get fired or leave a job, but things happen," Campbell told Fox 26 in Houston. "I'd go on record and say 'yes I think it's time.'
"I'd just say this, I take my hat off for USC for what they've done. They didn't mess around with it. They just said 'let's do it now.' I think at some point our university's people are going to have make a decision."
Mack Brown, faced with a no-win situation:
Mack: "Earl Campbell will always be welcome back at Texas. I'm disappointed in his comments but he has a right to say what he feels."

And incase you're wondering who is more popular with Texas fans at the moment:
Mack. Let me straighten this out for you. You don't decide if Earl Campbell is or isn't welcome back at Texas. He is Longhorns football.

Things are getting hot down in Texas, and unless Mack Brown rallies the troops and leads Texas to a next-door-to-impossible BCS title run, it's looking like he'll be on the outs after the year. (That still may not satiate Earl Campbell, who apparently wants to see Mack Brown fired in an airport parking lot.)
