The Tom Herman era at Texas got off on the wrong foot Saturday as the Longhorns laid an egg against Maryland. After the Terrapins took possession with a 10-point lead and 3:39 remaining, the hometown crowd in Austin abandoned all hope and began throwing objects onto the field.
The game was briefly delayed. When action resumed, Maryland scored again to make it 51-34 and further enrage Longhorn hopefuls. A embarrassing home loss was certainly not what Herman was expecting — or the result expected from him.
Texas is not back in any meaningful way.
