Daily Round Up: Texas Will Get Physical Next Season

Herman expects his team to be hard-hitting and tough.

The Horns are going to be a hard-hitting, physical football team. “What validated Herman’s method of preparation for that contest was, as he told Galindo, what a member of the Oklahoma staff told one of the Houston assistants over the phone following the game. The Sooner staff member reportedly told the Cougar coach that during their time in Norman with Stoops, Houston was the, “hardest-playing, hardest-hitting football team we’ve ever played.’”

Baylor’s game against Boise in the Cactus Bowl will come down to discipline. And we know how that will work out for Baylor. “In the end, the outcome will likely be decided by which team is more disciplined. Since Boise State has been the more stable program over the course of the season, both on and off the field, and has done a better job taking care of the football, expect the Broncos to come out on top.”

Mike Gundy would have probably suspended himself in college. “Back when the mullet was fashionably relevant, when he was a fierce competitor in practice and during games in leading OSU to a pair of 10-win seasons. But when the final whistle blew and Gundy left the locker room, he was a regular on the Stillwater strip.”

I guess this means Boone Pickens and Mike Gundy did not patch things up last season?

Florida State’s bowl season goal is to piss off Jim Harbaugh.

Major Applewhite has big shoes to fill in Houston. “While at times his salesmanship could bleed into thin skinned-ness, Herman undoubtedly leaves behind a massive charisma void to fill, as well as a program that sits in an even more precarious position on the college football landscape than the one he took over in 2015.”
