Tom Herman held his regular Texas game-week press conference on Monday, fielding 19 questions in 35 minutes. It was a lot less contentious than his last Monday presser on Sept. 18. We found out that Bill Snyder will celebrate his 78th birthday on Saturday when Kansas State comes to town, that Jerrod Heard suffered a hand injury the day before the Iowa State game and required 19 stitches, that Connor Williams is opting not to have surgery to repair his MCL injury and that they’re planning on giving Shane Buechele a plasma shot into his ankle to spur a faster recovery.
This is an annotated transcript of Herman’s press conference — every question, every full answer — along with some of our own staff thoughts on what he said, coming from Kirk Bohls, Cedric Golden, Brian Davis and others.
