Youmans: Four Week 14 CFB bets I like


Speculation continues to swirl around Tom Herman, who soon could be the ex-Texas coach. Herman recently acknowledged rumors that his job is in jeopardy, and the rumors have turned into reports of Urban Meyer being pursued with a blockbuster offer.

When the end is near for a coach, that qualifies as a distraction. When two players announce decisions to opt out and prepare for the NFL Draft -- as offensive tackle Samuel Cosmi and safety Caden Sterns did this week -- that qualifies as significant subtractions. It all adds up to trouble for the Longhorns, who are out of the Big 12 title hunt and figure to be emotionally flat road favorites Saturday at Kansas State.

Texas blew a 20-10 third-quarter lead in a crushing 23-20 loss to Iowa State last week. Ironically, Cyclones coach Matt Campbell has emerged as a popular choice to replace Herman. Meyer, who was Herman’s former boss at Ohio State, is the top choice. The Longhorns’ remaining games seem to be an afterthought and a secondary story to the coaching search.
