Tom Herman uses urine color (seriously) to measure players' dedication level

Tom Herman uses urine color (seriously) to measure players' dedication level

It's there that first-year coach Tom Herman's latest edict is posted, calling for "championship level hydration" from all players before, during and after practice.

On Tuesday, Anwar Richardson of OrangeBloods.com tweeted a photo from the Moncrief-Neuhaus athletic complex at Texas, and now you know that Herman seems to take the hydration of his players seriously.

"If the pee is dark like Texas" school colors "you are a bad guy". Coaches and staff usually monitor how much their players are hydrating but the commentary next to the color is what stands out for Herman & Co. But not even MI coach Jim Harbaugh, who does some out-there things, determines the worthiness of his players based on their urine.

It is one of college sports' great ironies that Texas of all places has fallen behind a bit in college football's facilities arms race.

That is quite the upgrade from the outdated lockers the team had before.

At his previous job in Houston, Herman had players carry around a gallon of water with them at all times, according to ESPN.
