Colin Cowherd was at one point had a decent amount of confidence in Tom Herman’s ability to turn things around at Texas. Following this past weekend’s 23-20 defeat at the hands of Iowa State, that faith seems to have dissipated.
“Tom Herman, it’s not working at the University of Texas,” Cowherd said.
“I liked Tom Herman when he got hired by the Longhorns. Why wouldn’t I? I talked to him, he was smart, he was aggressive, he had a presence, Urban Meyer signed up for him, he was a good recruiter early in his career but he’s 7-7 in his last 14 games.
“There’s no excuse to lose to Iowa State in football. Stop it. Texas has 300 division one football players in their state, Iowa has nine a year. Iowa State’s well coached but there’s no excuse,” he continued.
“Again, Texas recruiting is bad right now, they’re getting beat in state. The word is he’s a little too intense, He’s a little too arrogant and does not curry favor with a lot of long standing popular high school football coaches. I’m not inside the program, but I thought it would work but it doesn’t work.”
By all accounts, Herman’s days with the Longhorns are numbered. Urban Meyer’s wife is literally shopping for real estate in Austin, Texas, at the moment, and that switch seems all but inevitable at this point.
