Herman’s offense, the Applewhite impact, starting from behind on 2017 recruits, and a huge recruiting weekend coming to Austin this Saturday and Sunday makes for exciting times right before the NCAA Dead Period. We give you names, odds, and how Herman has no fear going after in-state committed prospects. This staff is working overtime, just like the squad at Inside Texas in the Humidor.

Thursday evening, after weeks of keeping our cool while others repeatedly broke their hollowed-out tooth cyanide capsule, we finally felt the coaching search pressure a bit based on some very reliable information. And damn am I pissed about that because thanks to some quick action I once again think UT is back to neutral with Herman’s car headed downhill to Austin, provided the UT admin doesn’t set up any spike-strips.

We dive into team reports, injury news, and new starters heading into UT’s battle with the No. 10 West Virginia Mountaineers. We also add a tidbit on potential staff changes this offseason, and go in-depth on the chances of a coaching carousel happening in college football starting next month. We finish with a portion of the Texas-WVU recruiting visitor list and notes on the early attendees. It’s Friday, Humidor day.

This week’s edition of Friday’s in the Humidor explains the behind the scenes look at the Texas Football program and coaching situation. Tons of moving parts means Saturday’s tilt in Lubbock is one of the most crucial games in the Charlie Strong Era. We’ve got team news, player updates, and an important recruiting note. The Humidor lives up to the hype.

This week’s Humidor provides a healthy puff of team information, including the status of the o-line, secondary and a young running back. The staff then breaks down what else Texas could be doing in its “Texas fast” veer and shoot scheme, including a few simple changes. Finally, we jump into where the recruitment of one of the state’s top wide outs is currently.

I can’t help but chuckle as I routinely witness people predict the outcome they least want as the most likely. What are the odds that what you always fear is what’s always most likely? Texas has a reputation for exerting conference hegemony, indifferent or spiteful academics in charge of high level athletic decisions, and meddlesome boosters all culminating in a cesspool. Kirk Herbstreit was right! Three or four years ago.
