Texas football coach Tom Herman has a monumental task ahead of him as leader of the Longhorns.
Herman inherits a program that has fallen from grace and out of favor with it’s supporters. Considered a “cesspool” by some, the job at Texas will provide high levels of pressure and even higher expectations.
After a hard week of practice, Herman wanted to make sure his players were succumbing to that pressure.
To do so, he turned the team’s weight room into a giant rave.
Looks like a good time. It’s unclear whether this was a mandatory weightlifting session or if the Longhorns players are that committed this year: the way the blow off steam is to put the work in.
Herman brings with him a history of success as coach of the Houston Cougars. Despite being the coach at Houston for only two years, Herman’s name quickly rose to the top of the list of desirable coaches, and was finally lured away by the biggest program in the state.
Perhaps he is taking a more unconventional approach, or perhaps it’s being more publicized now that he is at Texas, but the Longhorns were certainly overdue for a shake up.
Whether this will translate into wins on the playing field won’t be known until the football season starts. In his first season as Houston, he improved their record from 8-5 to 13-1. Longhorn fans will be hoping for more of the same.
