The Whys of Texas: Tom Herman not the right guy?

Brian Davis received a lot of comments from readers concerning Tom Herman in the edition this week of the Whys of Texas. Some questioned whether or not Herman is even the right man for the job. Others, however, are on board with Herman and feel he’s getting unfairly treated by the media. Readers also had something to say about the offensive play calling and the kicking game.

The commitment to the Jayhawks is a disappointment for Texas, but the Longhorns are still expected to finish in the top 10 in 2018’s recruiting rankings.
