WACO, Texas (AP) Texas coach Mack Brown jokingly referred all week to being the only coach in America playing for a conference championship while also shrugging off speculation that he could be replaced.
Well, the intense speculation about Brown's future is certain to increase now. The regular season is over for the No. 23 Longhorns without a Big 12 title after losing two of their last three games, the regular-season finale a 30-10 loss Saturday at No. 9 Baylor, which won its first championship in the league and a Fiesta Bowl berth.
"I'm not talking about any of that tonight," Brown said. "I'm in the same position I was when I've been asked that the other 15 times. We'll talk about the team tonight."
