It’s been 10 years since Art Briles left Houston for Baylor. The Cougars have cycled through four head coaches in that decade: Kevin Sumlin, Tony Levine, Tom Herman, and Major Applewhite. I started thinking about the highs and lows of this era – so here are my 10 best and worst games in that decade: 10 Amazing Wins 11/15/08 – UH… Read More

Ranking All 8 UH Offensive Coordinators Since 2008

Kendal Briles just became the 9th OC in 11 years for the University of Houston, meaning the last decade has seen 8 different offensive coordinators (Travis Bush, somehow, was OC twice). I decided to rank the UH offensive coordinators since Kevin Sumlin’s debut 10 years ago: 8. Travis Bush (2014 Disaster) At UH: 2014 QBs Developed: 0 (QBs Ruined: John… Read More

2017 Season Ends With a Resounding Thud

Major Applewhite’s first season as head coach of the Houston Cougars ended with a thud in the Hawaii Bowl. After starting the season with a 5-star quarterback and an All-American defensive linemen, most fans were disappointed with the 7-5 result.
