Former Longhorn Quandre Diggs Says Texas "Was A Mess" When Mack Brown Left

The state of Texas' football program is, in a word, unacceptable. The Longhorns, 1-4 this season, are 7-11 since Charlie Strong was hired in 2014. 

Much of the blame for the team's struggles is, unsurprisingly, being placed on Strong. There are many, though, who say former coach Mack Brown is the one to blame. They say Brown, who coached the Longhorns from 1998-2013, did not leave the program in good shape. It's going to take some time for Strong to fix everything that was wrong in Austin, they think. 

Former Texas defensive back Quandre Diggs, who played for Brown from 2011-13 (and for Strong last season) seems to agree with those people.

It's refreshing to see a former player speak so truthfully about his former program. Listen to him, Texas fans.
