I mean SMU is TERRIBLE....and they got killed.


The lesser talent comment was meant to apply to the projection of Herman's skillset set here at Texas, not an excuse for last night.

Saban, Harbaugh, and Meyer are the only coaches that could be considered "can't miss" and none of them are coming here. Anyone is going to be a risk. Herman, aside from recent struggles, appears to have huge upside. Who else could we possibly get 2ho presents less risk?

His days in the NFL are numbered....let's hope he figures that out sooner than later.

The Tom Hermann myth ended quickly......"One loss in two years"(to fucking UCONN) is nown3 losses in the.American Athletic Conference to UConn, Navy, SMU and almost Tulsa.....somebody sharted on that resume three weeks ago.

I'm not saying he may not be the right hire, I'm just saying you might want get BOTH his balls out your mouth....maybe get down to one.

I'll believe Chip Kelly when I see it. I agree that Shaw isn't coming. Petersen is sitting pretty at Washington.

Speaking hypothetically, if Kelly wasn't an option, who would you want since Herman is so toxic?

Kelly
Herman
Kiffin

Any of those would excited me.

Shaw wouldn't.

And I wasn't saying Herman is toxic Kevin, I'm just saying maybe we all tap the brakes a little bit.

Herman makes the most sense. There is a risk, but I think some of the others on this thread are unrealistic for various reasons.

And I say this more for what he did at Ohio State rather than anything at Houston with his predecessor's players.

Herman seems a little Trumpian to me.

Might be thin-skinned. I could totally see him fighting with fans and boosters in the media.

If you argue he's a great X-O coach and that offsets the immaturity...I'd likely start pointing to him losing games to service academies as a top-6 ranked team.

The Charlie Strong experience demonstrates how important the organization skills are, and the attention to detail. Chip Kelly excels in this area.

Tom Herman excels in organization and attention to detail. Freakishly so. But most geniuses do this.

Is this like how Charlie Strong excels at defense ?

My eyes, ears, and logical deduction lean otherwise in both cases

Do you guys really think he is going to leave the 49ers after one year?

He signed a 4-yr, $24 million contract.

That isn't a realistic option.

I would love to hear elaboration on what your eyes, ears and logical deduction are picking up on this, considering that it goes completely against the grain from every football industry person's take on this.

No way on Kelly. He's bound and determined to prove he can win in the NFL.

The list for me would be
Herman
Dabo, don't think he leaves either as he has a good thing built and rumor is he's been pinned as Sabans successor at Bama.
Peterson
Harsin
Morris
Fedora
And probably Kyle Wittingham

The same football industry that thinks Charlie Strong can coach ?

No more risky hires and no more chasing non-power-5 guys that have one impressive win on their resume.

The burden of proof should be on you, not Me.
