In this edition of the Humidor, the IT staff takes us through how Tom Herman and the rest of the staff are approaching the offseason, including recruiting and team mentality. We also dive into visitors coming in this weekend, and some who could make a mid-week trip; plus former Longhorn talks Max Cummins.
Last week we discussed the offense, today we'll take a look at the defensive side of the ball. Heading into the 2017 season Texas has only four seniors on defense. Pretty insane, huh?

The 2010’s have been a really bad decade thus far for Texas football. The Longhorns have gone 41-35 overall in this decade and only 27-26 in Big 12 play. Humiliating defeats against BYU, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, and Iowa State have littered virtually every season and there hasn’t been much to excite fans other than recruiting and the hope for next season.
Earlier this week I was given the role of “commissioner” at the Colt McCoy Football Pro Camp. For those of you that don’t know, Colt comes back to host a two-day camp for elementary and middle school kids every summer in Austin.
