The truth is out there.

“When you have the things that have been written about us in our program, myself and our future, very unfounded articles that state opinion as fact, that state unnamed sources as being factual, that’s very hard to defend against,” Herman said. “Because if I’m a competing recruiter, what do you do? You press print and you say, ‘Look, this is true, it must be true. It’s on so-and-so orangefans.com, right? It must be true.'”

“And you know that is the really, really hard part in recruiting because these 16-year-old kids are very impressionable.”

Man, if Tom Herman is thin-skinned enough that he’s whining about negative recruiting at Texas, there’s no way he could have survived as a head coach in the SEC.

    Apparently Tom Herman missed the past 4 years when all you have to do is say “fake news” and almost half the people will believe you.

    Isn’t this the coach that kisses his players and packs them a brown paper sack with PB & J sandwiches with the crusts cut off, a pudding cup and a hand written note that says “Just do your best!!” ?

    I eagerly await the SI article and ESPN documentary on recruiting bullying.

    Or you could be whatever it is that compels you to whine about students leaving in the second half of a blowout vs. directional sisters of the poor and ugly.

    If you’re winning its given a good connotation, if you’re not its given a negative one.

    Truth is I’ve heard Saban be a whiny little bitch on just about every issue under the sun, but he’s winning so its never referred to as that, even though it is.

    He got a 5 star d-lineman to commit and go to Houston. He’s at Texas and all of a sudden it’s hard to recruit.

    He knows his days are already numbered and he’s looking for excuses to save his ass.
