  1. The uncertainly of the future could be as detrimental as the actual results on the field as far as recruits are concerned. Hard to commit to a place with no clear directions.
  2. I actually believe that we have the talent to win out. Based on what he has shown, Herman is NOT the coach that can put a prepared, disciplined team on the field each week that will be necessary to win every game. Sorry, tried to multi-task. Should have known better at my age.
  3. If I remember correctly, Peterson said something about not wanting to leave the Washington area due to health issue with one of his sons. Wondered today about trying to strike gold with another former sooner in Fuentes? He was successful at Memphis, has been successful at Va. Tech and is still young at 44. Any thoughts? A place like UT might be his best chance to build a program to compete with the Clemsons of the world.
  4. With well thought out game planning like this, you might apply for an offensive assistant position. Doesn't seem like anyone else on staff has figured these things out.
  5. Heck, I'd be happy if we could just recruit the Georgia OL coach to come to Texas. Until their QB started throwing out picks like candy, the Ga. oline looked pretty dang good.
  6. Had a professor tell a class I was taking; "be careful thinking you are the smartest person in the room". Seems more and more that Herman believes he is the smartest person in every room. Never seems to work out long term for people like that.
  7. It sure seems like there is a leadership shortage at UT during a time when real leadership is critical. Meanwhile a university with one of the richest traditions in all of the country is becoming the butt of jokes.
  8. I had high hopes for Hand but wow, he does not seem to be able to recruit very well at all. Not sure who out there would be a better OL hire but the performance on the trail and on the field are not good testimonies of our current OL coach.
  9. I apologize, I did not mean to give the impression that I had any inside info. Simply reading what little tea leaves I get here in NE OK. It just does not seem to me that the ptb at the University have the stomach or desire to move on during the season and I wonder how much damage may be caused if a change is not made until the wheels completely fall off.
  10. Should have been the statement from the beginning. imo
  11. I do agree with Bohls that Del Conte should have at the very least controlled the narrative that Herman was communicating to the players about remaining on the field. I do not recall it every being mandatory that players actually sing the song but the tradition of remaining on the field predates every one of them and has been done by the greatest in UT history. It may be different at Texas but at the small school where I coach, the AD sets policy on those types of issues. If the coach is not able or willing to follow them, then they are removed. As for Herman's future, it appears he will
  12. Drayton. Not sure that provides a warm fuzzy feeling about the overall direction of the remainder of the season. Then again, I don't know enough about him or his coaching abilities to make an accurate assessment except to say that it has been a while since we had a RB who could break tackles consistently. Of course, other than Sam, we do not seem to have anyone at any position that can seem to break tackles any more.
  13. While I agree, doing it immediately poses several other questions to be answered such as; who takes over for the rest of the season because I don't see any way Urban comes mid year?
  14. Other names I've seen thrown around are Campbell and Fleck. My questions for those more knowledgeable than I is, have either of those demonstrated that they could recruit Texas or that they have what it takes to lead a program of this size and complexities? Both have certainly had success where they are but that is not necessarily a precursor for success at UT.
