DMN: Another question here, again, not trying to offer negative statistics. Everybody in the Big 12 knows Oklahoma has won five straight conference titles.

Herman: We’re well aware, yes.

DMN: What’s it going to take to knock Oklahoma off? From the standpoint of a competitor looking at a great rival, does that grate on you at all?

Herman: Sure it grates on us. It would grate on us if anyone won it five years in a row and it wasn’t us. But for it to be our hundred and some odd-year rival and across the state line, it certainly sticks in your craw a little.

To answer the first part of your question, what is going to take? They’ve had really good teams, they’ve got really good coaches. They’ve had two number one picks at quarterback, back to back years as well as a second-round pick this past year. We all know how important that position is in all levels of football. They’ve done a phenomenal job of recruiting and developing that position.

We beat them in the regular season. Couldn’t pull off the second part of that which was beating them in the conference championship game. There’s no moral victories at Texas especially when it comes to that school, but considering where we started, we’ve played them admirably and beaten them once in three years.

So what’s it going to take? It’s going to take a continued effort to recruit elite talent and to develop that talent and then hopefully one of these days they’ll stop having first and second round draft picks at quarterback. But we’ve played draft picks, that's certainly not an excuse at all, we’ve played draft picks at quarterback damn near every week, but those three guys they’ve had in the last three years were special -- really, really special.

We feel like we’re building something here that is sustainable and that rivalry is going to be, on a national perspective, I still think it’s the greatest rivalry in all of college sports because of the venue, because of the two states, because of the history of it. We’ve got to do our part in making sure that we win some more of those battles.

...Herman parlayed a win over OKLAHOMA when he was the HC @ Houston into the HC job @ Ut.
Riley was the new OC and lucky Bob didn't fire him. 
Mixon & Perine had fewer carries than the qb Mayfield that day.
Herman is a phony, a fake!
Hope he's there a long time.
The real "Horn fans" know this.
Ehlinger knows it too.
We're back!  Is whistling past the graveyard!

And therein lies their problem. They always get elite talent but rarely develop them.

Lincoln Riley going to the NFL, and that ain't happenin' any time soon. Suck it Tiny Tom!

I am confident that if Lincoln Riley does leave for the NFL, he successor will continue the dominance of saxet and the Big12. i.e. Riley for the NFL is not the answer saxet needs. They need intervention from God himself. And that ain't happening either.

I still think it's funny he cannot say "Oklahoma". He just says "that school".

You know you are living in someone's head when they cannot even say your name.

Herman = Gundy

Reminds me of Woody Hayes and "that team up north".

As far as our side, I hate it when Oklahoma people say "the University of Texas" like they prefer. Plain ole "Texas" seems to get under their skin a bit.
