Tom Herman Doesn't Think Texas Is A Top 25 Team

The Texas coach doesn't think his team is a top 25 squad.

Texas came in at No. 23 in the preseason AP Poll top 25 released earlier this week.

This prompted a reporter to ask Longhorns' head coach Tom Herman if he feels his team deserves to be ranked right now.

Herman's answer: No.

"We’re a 5-7 team. You are what your record says you are. We haven’t played a game yet. We’ll pay attention to those as we head down the stretch, but right now it’s just a bunch of people guessing, right?" Herman said.

Herman probably feels that Texas is getting a little too much hype and he doesn't want it to get into his players' heads.

The Longhorns open the season Saturday, Sept. 2 against Maryland.
