This is how I feel. A head coach should be above this type of behavior.

I understand your point. I disagree with the teenager part mostly because he's 21, but more so because I feel that 17-19 years of age is plenty old enough to take some ribbing. Is it the most professional thing for a head coach to do? No, it isn't, but I still do not see the harm in it.

Forget inappropriate for a head coach, it's just inappropriate for a grown man. College kids acting like imbeciles is excusable, but an adult making seven figures should act with some class.

Maybe someone should point out that they've barely had a winning season playing in a bowl that no one gives a sh*t about against a team who was down almost 20% of the coaching staff.

First off, Muschamp would whip Hermans ass, so I'm good with that. Secondly, Herman is in a pressure cooker at Texas that would swamp most coaches. Yes it's a bad look, but I'll give him a pass. Texas fans loved it and that's all that really counts in his world. In the end, we got Boom and we good.

I don't think it's what a head coach should do. Is it a big deal? No, but not head coach worthy. Ask yourself if Nick Saban, CWM, Kirby Smart, Brian Kelly, Mark Richt or a whole host of classy coaches would do that sort of thing - answer is probably not. Celebrate with your players, stay above the fray though.

I thought it was a douche move, especially for a head coach, but let's not act like Drew Locke is some innocent little kid, he is the biggest shit talker in the SEC

Wow you are special. This is equivalent to a baseball manager cussing out an umpire and getting thrown out for a bad call to help fire his team up, something the great Bobby Cox owns the record for. Herman just looks immature plain and simple. Two completely different circumstances.

Default Re: Really glad that we didn't end up with Herman

The test of 'Is this a douche move' should be does it make you want to punch the dude in the throat?

Herman--Yes. And not just because I think he's a general tool, but because any coach taunting another player deserves to be punched. The difference between Spurrier and Herman is that Spurrier was witty and funny and smart. Putting a grill in your mouth and dancing around when your team is just barely breaking 0.500 is not.

Muschamp--No. Not because I'd be scared to, which I would be, but because he made a bad decision, but one I understand. Whatever that ref did was not worth the reaction, but I bet every coach has wanted to do the same thing. And he's a coordinator. They're allowed a bit more slack to be unprofessional. Herman sets the tone for the program and team and this isn't how I'd want me kid to be acting.

Say what you want about Locke but he is still a college kid. As people grow up, we hold them to higher standards of maturity and behavior. While we can be disappointed by anyone's actions at any age, it's the standard we hold people to as they get older that matters.

For someone in Herman's position and at his age, he probably shouldn't be mocking a college kid. Like it or not, he will be judged differently for his behavior than Locke. He is more mature and should be held to a higher standard. Not only for his age but as a head coach what he represents for the university.

We are all entitled to mistakes. However, I find Herman's actions more offensive than Locke's due to the standard we hold for someone his age and in his position.
