Step aside, @ChuckFnStrong: @TomTheHerman has arrived

Posted November 28th, 2016

We’ve found an answer: @TomTheHerman. Our new fake football coach/Mensa master may be the reincarnation of @ChuckFnStrong – now the “guardian angel of slides and Texas football” – but Herman prefers Jenga to slides and Gwen Stefani to DMX. And he’s already weighed in on Oklahoma and Texas A&M, so it looks like we’re going to get along just fine.
