Coogs VS. Temple Keys & Senior Class Stats (FREE!)

Three things we’re watching for vs. Temple:   1. Does Ed Oliver play? This is an obvious one but with a few DL dinged up last week, Temple is definitely going to run right at us. They’ll want to test the legs of Fleming and Oliver and they’ll certainly want to test the backups. Also, recall that Temple cut blocked… Read More

Beyond The Box Score: The SMU Game

Lot of numbers, lot of situations here. Let’s go beyond the box score after the SMU game: For the third time in 4 tries, UH goes up to Dallas and gets it handed to us by SMU. In 7 seasons, three different SMU coaches have done that to three different UH coaches. In those 3 losses, SMU has outscored us… Read More

Stats Be Damned: The Defense Played Well Vs. USF (Free)

I usually live by the stats and the game book. But in the case of the UH defense, the stats don’t tell the whole story. And the story is this: the Cougar defense had a deceptively great day Saturday.   On paper, the D gave up 204 yards rushing, 263 yards passing and 36 points. And just reading that, someone… 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

KliffsNotes: Kliff Kingsbury On Ed Oliver

Kliff Kingsbury was asked about Ed Oliver on Tuesday and replied with basic coachspeak. We decided to illuminate his answers in an abbreviated, compact way.   Here’s KliffsNotes – 2.5 minutes of Kliff blah blah blah and Ed doing Ed things.   Forgive the low quality video. I have no clue what I’m doing.   Oliver’s season stats: – 18… Read More

Beyond The Box Score: Rice

An in-depth look at the UH/Rice game Last year’s team would have lost this game. There’s no doubt in my mind. Kudos to Major for making a change at OC.   But UH isn’t showing any love to Major:     Poor guy.   The 45 points would have been the second-highest scoring game last year.   It was the… Read More
