LBS- Tom Herman is doing work entering his first season at Texas and has been busy trying to flip recruits. He’s successfully flipped a few from Oklahoma, which may have led to this tweet being sent by Oklahoma DBs coach Kerry Cooks on Monday...
Usually I am critical of the "well, actually..." crowd. The fact that the lovely woman who went that particular route summoned the encyclopedic description of a certain breed of animal should only make her retort more insufferable. Unfortunately - in this case - she's simply too correct (and attractive) to dismiss.
I wouldn't know Kerry Cooks from any middle-aged man walking down the street in an Oklahoma Sooners' polo but he probably shouldn't concern himself with promotion, because clearly he doesn't know what it takes to be the head coach of a college football team. I know "a wolf in sheep's clothing" is supposed to be an insult, but show me a sheepish recruiter and I'll show you the next addition to the unemployment line. Did a conference rival's defensive backs coach really search Google to not-so-subliminally mention that Tom Herman is a nice guy on the surface and a ruthless, take-no-prisoners predator when it comes to his business? If so, then those Pinocchio emojis seem pretty out of place following a compliment.
Nick Saban, Urban Meyer, Jim Harbaugh, Les Miles, and - yes - even Bob Stoops. They all have one thing in common, and it's that they would nut in your wife if they thought her womb was capable of producing a 5-star recruit 19 years down the road. Considering the state of Texas' football, they needed someone that would embrace the "mess with the bull, you get the Longhorns" mindset. Going on Twitter to call Tom Herman a hunter that preys on vulnerable, impressionable 18 year olds is essentially the equivalent of giving him an online pat on the ass, because it doesn't just prove that he's doing his job. It proves he's doing it well.
