What a difference a week makes! After seeing the Cougars finally play a game with a full week of rest, we're feeling a lot better! Clayton Tune, Patrick Carr, the special teams, and Grant Stuard and the defense all gave us reasons for optimism up in Denton. And as always, we included your #FourWordReviews, and surveyed the rest of the AAC.
After an absolute whirlwind of a Monday afternoon, we finally caught our breath long enough to record. Are D'Eriq King and Keith Corbin really coming back next year? Will anybody else follow them on the redshirt route? Will Houston begin a new college football trend of redshirt tanking? You best believe we're wildly speculating about all that and more.
And then, oh, hey, there's an actual football game to talk about this coming week, so we spoke with Brett Vito of the Denton Record-Chronicle to get an expert analysis of the challenge the Mean Green present.
Plus we are in a celebratory mood, as the Cougar women's golf team staged a dramatic 3rd-round comeback to open their fall season with a tournament championship! And you know we had a rundown of all the other fall sports in action this coming week.
We can't avoid it any longer, we talk in detail about the Coogs' conference opening loss to Tulane, along with YOUR Four Word Reviews.
There's also Cougar volleyball talk, AAC/general college football week 3 talk AND Cougar women's golf makes their season debut!
Cougar football is less than 48 hours away from opening American Athletic Conference play, so we're diving into the Green Wave, talking to our old friend JP from Fear The Wave to get the scoop on Tulane. We also discussed why we're both feeling cautiously optimistic about a game in which Houston is the underdog.
Plus, Cougar volleyball closes up non-conference play, soccer hits the road to face a Big 12 foe, and men's golf opened up its fall season with its most encouraging result in years.
But most importantly of all, when is Cougar tennis coverage going to improve on UHCougars.com and/or the team twitter account? THE PEOPLE ARE DYING TO KNOW.
It was a frustrating game, but one with lots of interesting points to chew on (not all of them negative) as Cougar football came up short Friday night to the Washington State Cougars at NRG Stadium.
We talk over that game in depth, your 4 word reviews from the WSU game, plus updates around the week that was in week 3 for AAC and general college football.
ALSO a couple big tests for Volleyball against Baylor and Tennessee, PLUS updates from Cougar Soccer AND Cross Country!
We roll on through this challenging Cougar football non-conference schedule, taking an in-depth look at this week's opponent: the Washington State Cougars.
To better understand the Cougs of southeastern Washington, we enlisted the help of Michael Preston of CougCenter.com who gave us his thoughts on the Crimson & Gray through 2 weeks.
In addition, we gave our own thoughts about WSU and how they match up with our Coogs on Friday.
It was a Rorschach test of a football game where what you took away from it might say more about you than it does about UH football, but we're dissecting what went right and what went wrong nonetheless. We also read your Four-Word Reviews, and found out that the Cougar fan base is equal parts confident and concerned. Plus we talked about a surprisingly entertaining weekend in college football, and the AAC specifically.
Plus, UH volleyball had its most exciting week in recent memory, as the Coogs went 4-0 including a dramatic comeback against Maryland. Which freshman had a major coming-out party? You'll have to listen to find out.
It was a tough on field result, but we got to learn a lot more about the Coogs after their 49-31 loss on the road to the #4 Oklahoma Sooners.
We go in-depth on all aspects of the game: good, bad and ugly, as well as taking your Four Word Reviews on the Coogs' week 1 game. There's also the matter of the Prairie View A&M Panthers: the Coogs' week 2 opponent.
