After a week off, we're back and we've got plenty to talk about, as the Cougar football program saw two transfers in, two transfers out, two Cougar programs competed at conference championships, and women's golf is headed to Baton Rouge for the NCAA postseason.
Oh, and Ryan Wochomurka is leaving Houston, which is a huge bummer, but we did talk about what a huge positive he has been to the Cougar swimming and diving program, and the good place he left it.
This was the 308th episode we've done of this #Pawdcast! How did we celebrate? By talking all things Houston Cougar sports from a busy past week that was both for off-season roster additions AND in-season action, including but not limited to:
Transfers are the name of the game, as the Cougar men's and women's basketball team both picked up impressive senior bigs, while the men also lost Cam Tyson to the portal. We've got a breakdown of how Josh Carlton and Fatou Diagne will look in the red and white.
Plus volleyball bowed out in the AAC semis to end its impressive season, with a slew of postseason awards to show for their effort. Plus the women's track team put up a national top-5 mark in the 4x100 relay (among other impressive performances from the homestanding Coogs), and soccer picked up a dominant conference win.
Lastly, we finally have a long-avoided conversation about the fact that the Cougar bat and ball sports just aren't very good this year.
Sam and Dustin process the incredible 2020-21 Cougar men's basketball season now that its in the past tense and take a quick look at what's ahead.
Not to get lost in all of the Final Four hoopla, plenty of other Cougar programs are making big moves, and we've got a Dustin solo episode to recap it all. Houston volleyball finished up its regular season 9-1 in AAC play, and heads to conference championships this coming weekend. Cougar track and field competed against elite competition in the Texas Relays, and had a number of strong performances, including a 4x100 relay effort for the ages.
