LSU or Texas? Baton Rouge or Austin? Purple and gold or burnt orange?
We interrupt this segment of “Thoughts Going Through Tom Herman’s Head” with an update from the internet.
Houston fans are panicking at the idea of losing their second-year head coach after losing to Navy, 46-40. LSU fans are salivating. And don’t forget Texas fans, who have already dismissed Charlie Strong in their fantasies and are drooling with equal vigor to those in Louisiana.
Let’s go live.
So is Navy sending Tom Herman to a new job this winter?

Holy football, Houston bout to get upset..
Probably because Tom Herman has been talking with LSU all week about taking that job

Evidently Tom Herman was tired of getting all those calls about jobs and decided to get worked over by Navy

What are the chances that Tom Herman's team and Tom Herman's future team both end the game on a series of desperate laterals in same day?

Hey, Tom Herman. You know where you wouldn't lose to Navy?

But what does it mean? Two — two — losses in 20 games? Is Tom Herman really the man for a big-time Power 5 job?
WE DON'T WANT TOM HERMAN
Every LSU/Texas fan now, probably

Yes. Yes, Tom Herman is fully qualified to helm any program that wants him — and that’s just about every single one.
Just when you thought CFB couldn't be any more reactionary, a wave of "Is Tom Herman really that great?" sweeps through the plains.

Maybe the Tigers should be checking in on Ken Niumatalolo, though.
Maybe Navy's coach is the hot commodity not Herman!
