University of Texas football coach Tom Herman is serious about his players’ hydration levels. So serious in fact the coach has a chart for players to tell what type of person they are based on the color of their urine. Take a look at the full chart below, courtesy of Texas Longhorns beat writer Anwar Richardson.
Went to take a leak in Moncrief and this was hanging above the toilet. Tom Herman’s attention to detail is real ? pic.twitter.com/FoAMbkf56K

We get what Herman is trying to do here. Everyone, in particular division I athletes, needs to be properly hydrated at all times. What seems to go a bit overboard are the classifications of individuals at suboptimal hydration levels. Calling players selfish and bad guys don’t seem necessary. Banishing players to Area 51?! Doesn’t sound good. This is part of a larger culture built around big time college athletics. The sport and your team apparently takes precedent over everything.
