Now that National Signing Day is over, and the fact that it’s 2016, there’s really no need for fax machines anymore (thanks, PDF’s!).
So, Houston coach Tom Herman and some members of his staff had a little fun while celebrating their Class of 2016, making a spoof of the 1999’s Office Space.
The “printer scene” is one of the most well-known clips from the movie (if you haven’t seen it, look it up at your own risk, it’s slightly vulgar), and the Houston staff emulated it perfectly, and cleanly.
Herman’s #HTownTakeover is doing just that. In his first year at the helm, Herman led the Cougars to a 13-1 season, ending with a bowl victory against Florida State. Yesterday, Houston signed the No. 40 class in 2016, featuring the program’s first-ever five-star recruit.
Herman also recently signed a 5-year deal to stay in Houston, although there are persistent rumors that his stay in Houston might be relatively short. Nonetheless, we can only hope Herman’s tenure will lead to more great football and even greater movie spoofs.
