We're back, previewing the biggest Houston Cougar football showdown in a while now, we dare say since Dana Holgorsen took over, as the hated and #19-ranked Ponies of Southern Methodist (nee Money) University come to Houston for a Saturday night showdown.
Of course we take a look back at the Cougar volleyball and soccer weeks that were, with both teams reaching varying degrees of the 'home stretch' of their seasons. PLUS, week 9 AAC, Big 12 and general college football action.
It won't go down as Houston's prettiest game of the year, but it will go down as the soggiest. The Cougars waited 5+ hours for the weather to permit the playing of football, and then rode their defense and special teams to an overtime victory over East Carolina. We're scratching our heads at some ineffective offensive line play, and some questionable playcalling, while also acknowledging the singular talent that is Marcus Jones, and Houston's best defense in years. And we wouldn't dare put together any football recap without your #FourWordReviews
And of course, we're recapping the week that was in the American Athletic Conference and the Big 12, as well as taking a look at the wildest and most interesting results from around college football.
Rest In Peace, Molly Howard Gerwig.
We're back, talking maybe the biggest week in the collective history of Cougar soccer and volleyball this decade! Top 25 wins for each program have fans feeling pretty good as we head down the home stretch of conference play in each of those Fall sports.
Plus with no football game to preview this weekend, we're handing out some mid-season grades for Cougar football! We're giving the coaching staff and each position group a grade based on what we've seen through the first 6 games. Which position group did we exactly agree on? Which position group did we vary by an entire letter grade? I'm not spoiling that in the episode description, listen and find out already!
It was a bit nervy at times, but Houston Cougar football ended up with an 18-point road win over the Tulane Green Wave, their 5th consecutive win which keeps them one of three undefeated teams in AAC play. We're talking a dominating defensive performance, a hometown hero, and how Houston is set up for the second half of the year.
PLUS, we're reviewing a wild, wild week in college football, which featured some huge helpings of schadenfreude. We've got the rundown on the entire AAC, entire Big 12, and our largest variety of general interest college football stories of any episode so far this year.
Is this 2 episodes in.... 3 days?! It is 2 episodes in 3 days!
We return to preview Thursday night's Cougar football showdown on ESPN with the Tulane Green Wave, and brought on one of our absolute favorite and most frequent guests JP of Fear the Wave (now at fearthewave.substack.com as well!) to get the skinny on the 2021 version of Tulane football, in addition to giving our own thoughts on this opponent.
PLUS, Cougar Soccer and Volleyball have big weeks and look ahead to road showdowns with conference leading foes after encouraging weeks in both sports
What better way to end the weekend and begin the new week than a Cougar football post-victory react show? Hopefully you answered that question with "nothing".
We dived into everything we liked from a comprehensive, Friday night 45-10 victory by UH football over the Tulsa Golden Hurricane and takeaways as 7 more regular season games loom.
PLUS, your Four Word Reviews and taking in a chaotic week 5 in the AAC, Big 12 and college football world at large.
