Tom Herman creating culture at Texas

Recommended Posts

I haven't read through the thread, some of the posts you quoted are real mental gymnastics, even for those situations.
That said, the OP on this thread (he who shall not be named) isnt' all that off on the building culture part. But I would note to that, it was only the start.
Herman talked about building culture, and for the year he had something working. But we were a long way from knowing if he built a lasting culture that would last from season to season. As this season has shown, his own proclamation might be a tad premature.

I was mainly referring to all the know it all’s who said Herman’s extension was no big deal and would have no effect on us as fans.

More generally though, as it relates to the premise of the thread, there’s nothing that fans overate more than “toughness” culture. Remember all the bullshit about taking out the juice bar when Strong took over? All football teams emphasize toughness. That’s what the strength coach is for.

This tweet is so telling... Texas is such a poorly  coached team at every level right now... should also add special teams failings, and poor defensive rankings...

oof, i did not remember this thread. there's one that did not age well. right now the only culture we have is one of perpetual disappointment. we should have Shaka and Herman do an academic decathalon, loser is fired, winner pays his buyout.

Don’t forget Brennan Eagles being suspendEd for missing practices bc he’s fed up with his position coach.  Bazier on his podcast thinks he will enter the portal after this year due to Mehringer.  

Also, multiple OL having a meltdown after getting their asses kicked by Baylor’s 3 man DL.

Starts around 7 minute mark... Good response to a reporter related to the current racism struggles in America.

 

"Texas Coach Tom Herman shocked these recruits, and got a Win in June"

Look how Tom Herman is handling this compared to say Norvell at FSU

Oh, APD took time out from intentionally blasting kids in their faces with bean bags to take a knee with UT players?

How nice.

Awesome gesture by Coach Herman and the outstanding young men of the University of Texas. 

But let's be honest, if they didn't have those officially issues Longhorn workout gear clothes on, they'd have a couple hundred cops trying to beat them.  

Because the First Amendment only means something to oppressed White Christian Bitches.

Might as well drop the whole video clip here from Anwar at the The State Capitol...

The fuck?

Just saying, if the battlegrounds for recruits is in any way the social justice relm, Austin and Coach Herman are going to dominate. Herman has a real story and background that shows he can relate, he's smart enough to talk about it without coming off inauthentic. Saban? Smart? Jimbo? I don't think any of these cities or head coaches can compete when it comes to relating to sensitive social issues with the youth.

Dumb question, but with COVID is Coach going to be able to kiss the team on the mouth getting off the bus?

No, on the Veranda will be fine.

Of course the Foster thing still has to play out, but Tom’s done an admirable job in a tough year. Beyond the usual duties, had to hire a new staff, keep guys from leaving, deal with Covid, deal with and support the athletes through the post George Floyd turmoil and “Eyes” controversy. Ultimately he’s come out looking like a guy who has great respect and care for the athletes off the field as opposed to mercenaries like Patterson or phonies like Jimbo.

See, you got to coordinate.  

Gerard, did you know inside your pops' jacket was special Longhorns?  

YES MARCUS! 

I want one, when I bother to wear a sportcoat again. In Spring of 2021.

Guessing CDC and Herman should get a little credit for this...

 

I know he caught a lot of shit over the summer, but this brings it home. Insightful and passionate kid. Hope he continues to fight for what he believes in, uses whatever platform he has available to him to do it, and kicks all kinds of ass on the field.
