The Athletic has excellent Carolina recruiting article

Mac Brown is recruiting lights out. Has built a very
strong fence around the state in a very short time.
The Athletic

So of course he’d shrug off what critics said when North Carolina hired him at 67.

” ‘He’s too old’ or ‘He’s not going to have the energy’ or ‘He’s not going to be able to relate to the kids’ — all the negative stuff,” Brown said. “People wrote that and I thought it was fair. That’s OK. One thing I learned in TV and about the media is that it’s OK to have opinions. That’s your job. So why get mad?”

Mad would have been a waste of energy. Signing some of the best recruiting classes North Carolina has had is better revenge.

In today’s football, there is something appealing about hiring a young coach. But when did experience stop being valuable? When did relationships stop being coveted? When did being a Hall-of-Famer mean you’re too old?
