Houston’s Tom Herman: Our receivers stink and don’t belong in Division 1 college football

Why don’t you tell us how you really feel, Houston head coach Tom Herman.

You have to understand one thing about Herman. He is going from one of the most loaded programs in the country at Ohio State to what is a bit of a rebuilding project at Houston. The new head coach of the Cougars brings high expectations after helping the Buckeyes grab the national championship, so he knows what kind of players he needs to win. If one quote from a camp scrimmage is any evidence, Herman does not have that kind of talent at wide receiver on the depth chart in his new football home at Houston.

Tom Herman on scrimmage: “Our 2s and 3s receivers stink. They don’t belong right now in Division I college football.”

Maybe that reads a little bit more harshly than it was intended, but it should certainly send a message to the entire receiving unit that whatever has been done so far is not good enough to meet Herman’s expectations.

Houston returns one starting wide receiver from last season, Demarcus Ayers (335 yards and two touchdowns). Houston is lacking in receiver depth but Herman should be able to help solve that through recruiting moving forward.
