    I think somewhere along the line Herman started believing his press clippings, that he was a savant of a coach, that he knew how to push all the right buttons. Many of his press conferences that I've seen are full of pithy quotes that sound intelligent but really are excuses for failure. They made me not like him because it looked like he was not taking responsibility coupled with the attitude that "I'm the one guy who knows how ti fix it." Arrogance coupled with ineptitude. Not a good look.
    Man, if you are going to be mediocre at something, you at least need to be likable. It will buy you some time. He's not likable. Adios, señor.

    Apparently it’s a Texas thing because Texas has a lot of money. They hired that women’s basketball coach for a million a year which was a lot more than she was making because it’s Texas and the job pays a million a year.

    Anyone want to change their vote?
    Unfortunately this season went about as well as I thought it would with him as CEO.

    Nope, I think I'll stick with fraud.

    A little bit of both. Like to see what would happen if he had a better than average QB (Nothing against Sam).

    Try having a better than average OL! Sam would look better than average too.

    Sabre, how is the program at a lower point than when we were losing more than we lost in Charlie's three years? Lower expectations? Isn't that on us?

    I should have said lower expectations, but higher (if not better) excuses.

    Herman had some legitimate excuses for the collapse in the Third Ward, like losing his QB, then losing their path to a possible major bowl. The latter should have been a neon sign that no one (including me) wanted to recognize. Herman had lost his team. He couldn't rally them against teams that were the equivalent of a bad 3A HS team.

    Like the stupid, trash-mouthed chick with huge upper body regions, and no morals. Sooner or later you have to talk to her. We just never wanted to think about that.

    Fraud? No.

    Good enough to get me to think we'll be a title contender in the future if he can't do it this year when nearly everything was going our way? Also no.
