Herman Era Year 2

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the link!

Not only have the Longhorns not boasted an All-Big 12 quarterback since McCoy, they haven't even had a quarterback start the Red River Showdown in consecutive seasons.

Wow, a weird stat that is very telling.

I have actually played golf with DKR (he was a 5 handicap at that time and beat my brains out).  Coach Campbell played with us as well.  After the round while having a few drinks,  Royal walked to another table to talk to a couple of BMD's. Campbell then told me that Royal was the most organized and detail-oriented coach he has ever known.

This is Tom Herman, as well.  Let's hope it translates into UT building him a statue like DKR's.

Thought I recognized that rascal.  You knew his daughter, Angela, married Sergio Garcia and they just had a beautiful baby girl?

 

I heard that.

 

Also heard he built a runway on his ranch so Sergio could fly in.

 

Marty was one hell of a lawyer after football, landed at the time one of the biggest settlements in legal history.

He got screwed by the "powers that be" trying to run for Gov, left him a bit bitter.

I don't know him well but really enjoyed visiting with him then I went to see him and his wife when he was recovering from liver surgery in Dallas.

    • Texas coach Tom Herman made most of off week recruiting in his Bevocopter     Photo: Associated Press   24SHARES  SHARE  TWEET  EMAIL By: Cam Smith, USA TODAY High School Sports | October 22, 2018 Texas A&M has the “swagcopter”, made popular by now former A&M coach Kevin Sumlin’s quick dash recruiting trips. Now second-year Texas coach Tom Herman’s making the most of his own helicopter, especially on his team’s week off. Herman spent a whirlwind Thursday and Friday night crisscrossing high profile sections of Texas, attending the games of high profile recruits after landing Texas football’s dedicated helicopter, the appropriately named “Bevocopter.” Twitter Ads info and privacy       Per 247Sports, those Herman Thursday pit stops included a stop to see Class of 2019 defensive end T’Vondre Sweat, Class of 2020 wide receiver Troy Omeire, while his Friday was even more a mad trolley dash run through. Just look at the list of players Herman got in front of while flexing the use of his Bevocopter: Andrew Coker, Bryce Foster, Hayden Connor, Zachary Evans, Damieon George and Shardach Banks, Javonne Shepherd, Demond Demas, Vernon Broughton, Prince Dorbah and Chad Linberg. While that massive crop of recruits is unlikely to commit to Texas en masse, it’s clear that Herman’s Bevocopter arrivals only helped his program’s cause. “It was something you’re not going to see everyday,” Omeire told 247Sports. “He didn’t have to come to my game, so it means a lot for him to have come and spent time with my team.” Added Evans: “It was a good feeling. I honestly didn’t see it at first. My team actually saw it and asked me who it was. It was live.” Or, most impressed of all: The mother of Linberg, Emily Linberg: “We were super excited about the arrival of the Bevocopter,” the elder Linberg told 247Sports. “I hadn’t really told a lot of people, so everyone was wondering what it was. I don’t think Chad’s teammates really thought it was going to happen, so they were thrilled. UT’s stock definitely rose.” https://usatodayhss.com/2018/texas-coach-tom-herman-made-most-of-off-week-recruiting-in-his-bevocopter
    • Good length, solid feet and does a good job not letting them die on contact as a run blocker. Moves around pretty good, but he worries me with how early he turns his shoulders in pass pro. That’s something better rushers will expose. 
    • With WR Turpin arrested for assault of a family member....solid week for Patterson.  
    • Hookfin isn’t a name I’m familiar with. That’s a solid class, but it’s lacking interior bodies and particularly one that can at least crosstrain at center. Shepherd’s floor also spooks me a little bit. 6.5 is my cautious answer.
