    Is it just me or does his demeanor seem far different the past few times before the mic as has been seen for the last year? I’m no expert but it’s noticeable imo...

    I’m just wondering if he actually believes the sh#t that comes out of his mouth.

    He immediately gave kudos to CDC and dodged the 'arrogant/fan base' question by saying he loved the fans. He knows people are not happy and it's showing in his press conferences.

    His act worked when he was thumping people at Ohio state and Houston. Now that he’s getting his ass kicked on a fairly regular basis and barely squeezing past Tulsa. The arrogant swag act doesn’t really work. He’s figured that out, but doesn’t know what else to do, because that was his gear. That’s why you can’t bring coaches with just a couple years of expierence in to a pressure cooker like Texas. When Texas hires Tom Herman PJ Fleck was kind of the other “it” name. If I had to pick between the two I would of chosen PJ Fleck over Herman simply because the guy took westren Michigan from 1-12 his first year to 12-1 in his 4th year. He’s been literally as low as you can go to as high as he could go, and could draw on that expierence. Maybe we’re havijg the same discussion about him to but his expierence and resume imo is something we should look for in the future

    Pete Carroll was/is a rah rah coach. There isn’t one specific style, or “right” way to be a head coach.

    Also let me be clear. I’m not advocating for PJ fleck necessarily. Simply saying if I had to of chosen between Herman and fleck I would of chosen Fleck simply because he had more expierence to draw upon. Which I think you really need at Texas, and I think Herman is struggling right now because he hasn’t really been through this before.

    I think that’s one of the reasons Mack was so successful here. By the time he got to Texas. He’d already seen damn near everything he could be hit with.

    Yep. That gimmicky stuff works for a season or so or for the incoming freshman, but, the sophomores-seniors, probably wears off.

    Maybe CDC oughta tell to get some new asst coaches or clean the house and start winning or you not gonna have to worry about it no more, maybe a house full of good asst coaches no matter what the price to get them would save his job...or throw 10 mill out their and get Peterson..

    I actually think he's seemed less arrogant and irritated lately. My feeling is...the post-game presser after Maryland he was quite an a-hole and arrogant, and my guess is after that CDC had a talk with him, because starting with the Monday presser last week through to the Monday presser this week, he has seemed more cordial to me. Now, he's still not acknowledging that there's a problem with the team which is baffling.

    I'm trying to tell Ya'll. Cdc put him on notice after Maryland. Sh!tty product and sh!tty attitude toward the press. You need skins on your wall to treat the press like crap. Tommy doesn't have them.

    Most of the aggys revenue for the past few years comes from taking on debt to build their stadium and buy plaques. It already switched back to UT in 2017.

    Go check the amount of gold held by the UT endowment. It's sickening.

    Not really. They do some things here and there, but, not to that extent. I have to give him credit, it wasn't easy to do what he did, but, to say that he would have been a better coach than TH is ridiculous IMO.

    Who do you guys think would be realistic options to right the ship if a change was made? I just don't know who a "sure fire" would be.

    Evaluate Herman after 2019. If it doesn't work out, I'd call Bob Stoops. If Stoops says no, maybe CDC calls Patterson.

    It's honestly a really hard question to answer. Because Herman and Strong are so polar opposite different types of people, men, coaches, leaders. Yet the product on the field is so similar. So what does that mean...

    Dabo Swinney has a 'gimmick' every year. Every program has a motto or word for the year, or the successful ones. For whatever reason it just isn't as publicized.

    The RTB came out because Western Michigan won their first conference title since the 80s, had their first ever 10 wins season and played in the New Years Six.

    I still think Herman can get it done, but in the spirit of sport debate I'll answer anyway.

    I posted this in another thread. Based on the criteria many have used here the list is very short

    Justin Fuente
    Chip Kelly
    Matt Campbell
    James Franklin
    Gus Malzahn

    The Chris Peterson, David Shaw, Dabo Swinney, John Harbaugh stuff just isn't realistic to me so I didn't put their name in there. Of course, I'm giving them a call to make them say no, but I think they would say no.

    I like the James Franklin pick...again for prognostication's sake I just don't know that he would leave PSU but again you've got to make him say no.

    Campbell scares me, yes he has done well at ISU which is P5, but I would have the same concerns about him that people has about Charlie and Tom. All the others have done it on the BIG stage. I don't get why Auburn fans are always so on edge about Malzahn, seems to me he is an above average on the cusp of really good coach.

    Agree. Tom Herman never went through bumps, didn't have to dig his way out of a shit rotten program. Matt Campbell has had to, but has not had near the success Mack did at UNC.

    Mack Brown took UNC, essentially the Iowa State of the ACC, and had back to back top 5 finishes. His first two seasons at UNC he was 2-20 and I'm sure was feeling the heat.

    That is a qualified candidate to take the Texas job.. I'm not saying Tom Herman was not, just that I think Mack Brown sometimes is taken for granted the job he did at North Carolina.

    Mack was taken for granted for a lot of stuff. Did the win the big daddy enough? Who knows but he had a 10 year stretch that only Saban can replicate

    My main problem with tom is that he has no idea how to really be a head coach yet. hes only been a head coach for 3 years. this isnt a job for a relatively green head coach. too much is involved. my list in no order:

    Justin fuente
    kyle wittingham
    chris peterson
    scott satterfield
    dave doeren
    brent venables
    pj fleck

    Fuente - good pick obviously I agree
    Wittingham - can't see him leaving Utah...he has been there like 20 years
    Peterson - he isn't leaving Seattle
    Satterfield - going from Appy state to Texas?
    Doeren - This is an interesting pick, much like Campbell. Doing well at a tough place
    Venables - zero HC experience
    Fleck - still not sure on him
