Re: Houston wipes out the Wave 48-17

The recruiting advantage that UH has is that the Houston area has an incredible number of high end recruits. As Barry Switzer used to say, "if I could get the top 10 recruits in Houston every year, I could win the national championship every year". Invariably, a handful of Houston's 4 star recruits...

Re: Houston wipes out the Wave 48-17

Looking at Rivals recruiting site, it should have been no surprise why Houston, Cinci & UCF are that much better than us. Houston has finished 7th, 1st & 6th over the last 3 years with (1) 5 star and (3) 4 star recruits. Cinci has finished 1st, 7th & 2nd with (2) 4 star recruits. UCF has finished 3...

Re: Line Moves to Houston 7.5 pts. > Tulane

Vegas bookies cleaning up as usual Yes, it looks like the "smart money" got burned on this one! Nah, I'm sure the "smart money" knew how Tulane always chokes in a big game and spotted the points. The "smart money" are those that moved the line from 9.5 to 7.5 in three days. Clearly they were wrong.

Re: Houston wipes out the Wave 48-17

Umm, that would be FIVE DAYS before the season started. And McM is not the answer, at least not this year. Once Houston took away the quick slant, he had little to offer.

Actually it's Green Bay v. Seattle. An Interesting match-up too.

HUGE opportunity for Tulane tonight. Game is on national TV on ESPN. Only two MAC games competing with it, Only 3 NBA games although one is Golden State at Houston, which may keep Houston's crowd down even more.

That doesn't address the SOS issue. There is a difference. There just is. Like golf I think their #12 ranking is rightful recognition of it. Here's the problem with SOS. Its biased from the beginning. If you were to put the 12 AAC school ranked as #1 to #12 at the beginning of the year, most of us ...

Re: Houston game week info

With Houston's defensive issues, I hope we run the ball early and often and take advantage of Houston trying to stop the run like we did last week. If we rack up another 500 yards of offense, we should keep the Cougars off the field enough to outscore them. Oliver not playing would be a HUGE factor....

Re: Tulane Beats Coastal Carolina 81-76

From afar, and not seeing much of the FSU game, and none of this game, I would like to see Dunleavy getting the team to play with the same intensity regardless of the crowd, the opponent, or any other factor that is totally out of their control.

Re: ECU GameDay Thread

Yep, McMillan didn’t join the team until late August and yesterday was only his 3rd start. And already, just as for Banks as well, our wide receivers have now dropped a number of perfect passes he has thrown that could have been game changers. Yet, we are now 3-0 for McMillan as starting qb. :D Cle...

Way back in the summer I asked "what's up with the $50 ECU tickets?" The response was "That's Homecoming." I immediately said "way to try to rape your alumni." How'd that work out, Troy?

I think mcm has been accurate and made good decisions (very few mistakes). Playcall has been too conservative. He has had several drops and maybe has thrown it too hard at times (I still put it on the receivers). Keep throwing slants ! Throw some screens! More passes to the TE’s ! These ECU punts h...

ECU’s quarterback is easily the worst I’ve seen in years.
I don't think it's any worse than our QB play. Despite two long TD's, McM is far from accurate.

Re: ECU GameDay Thread

How about Special Teams coach recognizing that the placekicker is punting, and moving our return man up 10 yards? That's twice we've given up 15+ yards of field position because we didn't catch the punt, which took a great ECU bounce both times.
