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.
