Look, I am not giving you my source. That source being the booster. So, I get it. You may not believe me, say I am trolling, etc, but I promise you that is not the case. Del Conte 100% called this specific booster, asked for $1 million to help with the buyout and told said booster he had a verbal commitment from Urban to be the Longhorn’s next head football coach. Facts. And for the record, this booster said he would be willing to give the $1 million.
Now personally, I don’t want Urban in burnt orange. I’ve said it a million times, Urban winning Texas a Championship would feel cheap. The beauty of winning a National Championship after a drought is the long, hard struggle it took to get back to the top. So buying a Ship will just never sit right with me. Plus, Urban will never be “our” guy. We’d be his sloppy 3rds behind Florida and Ohio State. No thanks.
Now, as to this nugget KD dropped today which caused a complete shit storm on twitter:
He’s right. There is a huge strain in the Herman/CDC relationship. Which obviously stems from CDC wanting to fire his ass and hire Urban. And really, there’s no way their relationship can come back from that. It’s definitely a “can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube” type of situation. Except if you do one thing and one thing only — WIN.
And to Herman’s credit, he won Saturday. Don’t tell me this doesn’t look like a guy who knows he’s a loss away from being canned:
Bottom line — one more loss and Herman is gone after the season. He knows. I know it. CDC knows it. And you should know it too.
