Texas coach Mack Brown still trying to figure out this voting thing

Texas coach Mack Brown, whose Longhorns defeated Ohio State in a thrilling Fiesta Bowl, was a little confused about how this whole coaches' poll worked.

Brown said today he was upset when he realized Utah coach Kyle Whittingham had voted the Utes No. 1 in the final poll. Brown was apparently unaware he could have done the same for his squad.

" I read something that said your vote didn't count if you voted for No. 1 because No. 1 already was taken," Brown said Thursday.

"I didn't want to hurt our team by voting us No. 1 and it not counting," Brown said. "So I guess I misunderstood."
Texas ultimately finished third in the poll behind Florida and USC.
