Film Room: AAC Officials & Replay Booth Botch The Call

With less than 4 minutes to play in the first half, UH stopped ECU at their own 18 yard line. It was 4th and 1 and the Pirates would have to punt.   But instead of the Coogs getting the ball, incompetence took over.

Debunking Major Applewhite’s Claims About The Defense Vs. Tech

UH fans have been up in arms about UH’s disgusting defensive (offensive?) performance against Texas Tech. The Coogs played a soft zone the entire game and the result were predictable: 9 touchdowns, 36 first downs, over 700 yards of offense and 605 yards passing and 5 TDs for their true freshman quarterback.   UH fans have a right to be… Read More

Film Room: UH Has Given Up On Punt Return

Great programs use special teams as a weapon. They are aggressive when necessary but always give their offense and defense any advantage possible. But UH has chosen to basically ignore special teams.

It’s not too surprising – quarterbacks with just a handful of starts at this level often have that issue.   So I decided to investigate. I went back and watched every snap of the first… Read More
