Mock was a backup quarterback during the Chris Simms–Major Applewhite years, before getting the starting job in 2003. He played well in the first several games of the season before being pulled for Vince Young during the 2003 game versus the Oklahoma Sooners. He alternated time with Young after that, providing a very accurate classic drop-back threat to complement Vince Young's scrambling abilities.
Mock was the subject of much speculation during the 2003–2004 off-season as to whether he would transfer from Texas based on Vince Young winning the starting job. However, he decided to stay at Texas to be second string quarterback for the 2004 season.

“Never hug and kiss your children! Mother love may make your childrens infancy unhappy and prevent them from pursuing a career or getting married! Thats total hogwash, of course. But it shows on extreme example of what state-of-the-art scientific parenting was supposed to be in early twentieth-century America. After all, that was the heyday of efficiency experts, time-and-motion studies, and the like.”
—Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
“I never feel so conscious of my race as I do when I stand before a class of twenty-five young men and women eager to learn about what it is to be black in America.”
