The wait is finally over...it's game week! The Cougars are taking on the rival Owls, so we caught up with Matthew from The Roost to get the lowdown on all things Rice football.
We also spoke with Marcus Oliver about the memorable moments from his career, the best Greg Ward play he ever saw (which you can watch here: https://youtu.be/cEli3uY_sJo?t=1640), his decision to come to UH in the first place, and of course, a certain brother of his.
This week we talked with Cougar football alum, high school coach, and more-successful-than-us podcast host Rowdy Harper! He talked about the wins that put UH on the map for Oklahomans, Case Keenum chucking a ball at a showboating defender, and the overnight success of Run The Power.
We also broke down the offense position-by-position, from a more-experienced offensive line, to what to expect from D'Eriq King, to answering the age-old question: will this be the year of the Tight End?
And finally, in one of our most exasperated and cuss-word-heavy segments ever, we talked about the monumentally bad idea that was inviting a certain former Baylor football coach to practice. We put it at the very end to make it easy for you to skip if you're tired of hearing us talk about this crap.
Back for the 2nd time this off-season is Joseph Duarte, with whom we talked all things 2018 Cougar football. That was our jumping off point to do a unit-by-unit preview of the Cougar defense and special teams. Apparently this Oliver kid can play a little?
There was also good news on the professional Coogs front, as Rob Gray signed a 1-year contract with the Rockets.
And last but not least, #HTownSpeedCity and #TransferU intersected in a big way, as the Cougar track program added a 7-time all-American to the roster for 2018-19!
