(Photo by Richard W. Rodriguez/Getty Images)Texas’ fan base is a passionate one. The Longhorns are not happy today and they’re showing it.Tom Herman’s team, ranked just inside the preseason top 25, is taking on Maryland at FedEx Field, home to the Washington Redskins.The Longhorns lost in an upset to Maryland early last season. A repeat of the 2017 disaster was not expected.However, through nearly two quarters, we’re getting just that. Texas’ offense is struggling and the Terps have already scored 17 points.It’s Maryland 17, Texas 7 through a quarter and a half.Unsurprisingly, some “fire Tom Herman” takes have surfaced.This is premature, of course. No matter what happens today, Texas isn’t firing Tom Herman. He’s an elite, promising head coach and the Longhorns are committed to him long-term.But…losing to Maryland in back-to-back seasons would be a really bad look. The Longhorns would have a huge uphill battle the rest of the season if they lose today.There’s still plenty of time remaining in this game, though. Texas can surely turn it around.The game is on FOX Sports 1.last_img
