Inside the Gameplan: Tom Herman versus Dave Aranda

As you will no doubt hear countless times during the lead-up and broadcast of the big showdown between Texas and LSU next fall, Tom Herman and Dave Aranda have some history together. They were college roommates at California Lutheran and then coordinated their own units across from each other in the Big 10 in 2013 and 2014. Aranda followed his mentor Gary Andersen to Wisconsin from Utah State while Herman was snatched up by Urban Meyer from Iowa State to coordinate Ohio State from 2012-2014

The 2019 Texas Longhorn offense is likely to be historically unique. The 2018 offense was fairly unique in its own right, they essentially ran a 21 personnel spread a year ago with Andrew Beck serving as a part-time fullback and occasional flex tight end while Lil’Jordan Humphrey was a nearly full-time flex tight end. Those two players defined the offense with their hybrid utilizations.
