Texas back? Longhorn fans ready to fire Tom Herman after disappointing Week 1 loss
Texas fans were thrilled this offseason when the Longhorns kicked coach Charlie Strong to the curb and brought in highly touted Houston coach Tom Herman.
However, the honeymoon is already over in the wake of Texas’s disappointing 51-41 home loss to Maryland on Saturday afternoon.
When Austin American-Statesman beat reporter Brian Davis opened up his Longhorn mailbag on Sunday morning, he was greeted with a slew of not-so-nice messages about the new coach:

The Longhorns take on San Jose State next week, so they should have a chance to right the ship a bit and maybe take some heat off of Herman.
However, in Week 3, the Horns head to Los Angeles to take on QB Sam Darnold and the USC Trojans, so this season may get a whole lot uglier before it gets any better.
Davis’s weekly mailbag will be something to watch as the 2017 campaign marches on.
