When the Texas football program is up, which rival fan bases and programs have the hardest time coping with their success?
In this day and age under head coach Tom Herman, the Texas football program isn’t finding the most success on the gridiron. They have their years, but Texas isn’t up to par with how they usually hold their standard of success for the football program. Texas is a true blue blood college football program, and they need to reach the heights that they were at during the years under former head coach Mack Brown.
That’s close to what football fans on the Forty Acres expert out of these men in burnt orange.
Texas did find some success on the gridiron of late under Herman’s direction. An 8-5 (5-4 Big 12) record wasn’t the worst season in recent memory, but really the only year where Texas had a good amount of success under Herman was in 2018. Texas finished up the 2018 campaign with a record of 10-4 (7-3 Big 12) after beating the Georgia Bulldogs in the Sugar Bowl.
There was a bottoming out of the program under the direction of former head coach Charlie Strong from 2014-2016. Texas only made one bowl game in the three years under Strong’s wing. But Texas should be on the way back up with how Texas was trending of late. Rising senior star quarterback Sam Ehlinger looks to have a big season ahead.
If Texas does start to rise again, there are going to be some other current and former rival fan bases that won’t be able to stand the success for this program. Here’s a look into those three fan bases that aren’t able to stand the success of the Texas Longhorns football program.
