Tom Herman is talking about going back to work and try to win the next game. What? Today was the game he should have worked on..screw parody Texas has had top 5 recruiting classes  under his belt and what has that produced? 7-7 record in the last 14 games!!! You can win games or make excuses but you cant do both.

Meanwhile, where did ISU, TCU, OSU, and even Baylor rank in recruiting? The issue has been with development under both the Strong and Herman eras. Tom has taken elite talent and turned them into a mediocre team. As a result, it seems to be causing highly rated kids to rethink their desire to come to Texas and play for this staff.

I don’t know who was calling plays because they won’t ever tell you but when we get the ball and needing a couple two or three first down and run for 4, incompletion, incompletion, punt is just crazy. They’re paying Yurcich way over a million per year. It’s either him or Herman but more on Herman because if my millions dollar job was on the line I would overrule some crap calls like that. You could have ran the ball three times and punted and left a little over a minute and Iowa St would have used their time outs. Instead they don’t have to use any time outs and a couple of plays they’re down on our goal line scoring. It’s just not going to work out with Herman. I’d have Urban on the phone tonight and let him come in and maybe save us losing a few recruits

My take on game and Texas.

1 Defense has improved close to championship level.

2 Texas has two excellenr RBS.

3 WRS did a better of catching and fighting for balls.

4 Sam was improved in passingjust not enough.

5 After first quarter play calling was terrible, espically in certain situations.

6Iowa St. is good we will see how good vs OU.

8 Feel sorry for teamespicalySam they deserved better.

I am not so confident Texas will fire Herman and that is a depressing thought! The AD needs to feel the fire on his paycheck and Golf Club Membership as Texas has to Hire a Coach who is a proven consistent winner in the College ranks . Hell , I will take Art Briles right now if that was our only option plus he would take the job for $1 million a year I bet!   Longhorns , Cowboys, man this Thanksgiving has really sucked.

Wow, just think about that  $15 million to just go away .  Sell your house in one of the hottest Real Estate Markets in America would probably just add to that walk away money plus he certainly has a hefty investment account from his short time at Houston .  Just be smart and conservative with the money , live well, but not excessive and check the box for  secure financial future as DONE!

I always said that the best deal in the land is to get one of these jobs and get fired. Walk away with a truckload of money. Crazy world

Exactly right. That “drive” lost the game.

Sam didn't help taking that sack on the 2nd to last play. Be that said, the Horns shouldn't have been in that position however they were.

That is vintage Sam. Hold the ball until they sack him when the worst possible thing was a sack. He also overthrew a very open Eagles on that drive. He is who he is and has been for four years.
