Major’s Grad Transfer Program Hasn’t Worked Out (Free)

Major Applewhite has made a big bet on the strategy of attracting graduate transfers. In the past two seasons, UH has taken nine such players. But the practice has not paid off; in fact, the grad transfer route has left the program scrambling to fill out a roster of FBS-level talent.   In theory, grad transfers can be attractive targets… Read More

UH Defense: The Good, The Bad, & The D’Onofrio

Just some rambling thoughts on a defense that, until Tulsa imploded, couldn’t get a stop: The Good, The Bad, & The D’Onofrio Payton Turner is thriving off the 1-on-1’s created by Ed Oliver’s presence in the middle. Carter and Chambers are largely non-factors. Turner has 24 tackles this year while Carter & Chambers have combined for 25 total. UH had 4… Read More
