Fifty shades of yellow.
Tom Herman, the new head football coach of the Texas Longhorns, wants his players to remain hydrated. The coach has reportedly gone as far as to post a pee chart in the bathroom locker room for what color urine should be if you’re a Longhorn.
Orangebloods.com’s Anwar Richardson snapped a photo of the chart to show just how “seriously” Herman is taking hydration.
If the pee is dark like Texas’ school colors “you are a bad guy.” If it’s dark yellow you “are headed to ‘Area 51’” or are considered a “selfish teammate.”
When players hydrate you hydrate the way Herman wants you to be, you’ll have a light color stream and are considered to be at “championship hydration levels.”
Tuesday was the first day the urine of the players was checked.
“Texas football coach Tom Herman said they consistently check the urine of players. Calls out players who are dehydrated in front of the team,” Richardson tweeted.
Herman’s desire for players to stay hydrated is no secret.
At his previous job in Houston, Herman had players carry around a gallon of water with them at all times, according to ESPN. If they were spotted without the water, they’d have to do up-downs.
Hopefully the team is as thirsty as the fan base is to get back to winning and playing in major bowl games in January.
