Ok, I said Bullpen in the other forum, but since all the seats around mine are Blue Crew - anyone going to the Texas Bowl this year? Changed to C USA/Big 12 - chance of U of H, A & M, Texas, and/or NEB. Fun game to go to, weird to see a college game from our seats.

Today is the last day, Adam and I bought all of our seats and parking (4 116H, 4 116D, and 2 Platinum). I hope some others come this year, it was fun last year!

Give me U of H, UT, A&M, or NEB. 2 of those games b/c I want to watch them. 2 of those games because tickets will be worth $$$$$$$!

Although I am not a member of the Blue Crew, I do plan to attend and have purchased my tickets. I sit in 115 Q, and last year I purchased tickets for the same seats. I later got a call from the Texans organization(?) that Rutgers band would be sitting in that area, and offered to move me down to 115 B. It worked out well and I had a great time.

The ESPN guys have UH projected to go vs Nebraska or A&M. Personally, I'd love to have a UH vs Nebraska matchup.

UH will probably end up in the Texas Bowl if they don't make the Liberty Bowl regardless.

I received a call Monday to inform me that one of the bands will again be utilizing my seats. Therefore, I have been moved to 116, and if I recall correctly, Row B.

I agree with you. I just think that If they don't make the Liberty Bowl, they may decide to go to the Texas Bowl just to be in Houston even if they end up ranking higher than #5. But I hope they go to the Liberty Bowl.

We're there UNLESS it's A&M v. U of H, then I might have to test the market value of the tickets (hey, I have a wedding to pay for!).

We have 4 in D, Jeff and Dean bought theirs, and Adam and I's in H.

If we go we'll use 4/8. Already made offers to a few people (if we dcide to go instead of scalp).

I'm skeptical that A&M would be there. They are bowl eligible but I'd imagine other bowls may want them. That said - anything is possible. I'm still hoping the Coogs go to the Liberty Bowl though....

It's all about bowl affiliations. I think the Texas Bowl includes affiliations with The Big 12, Big East and Conference USA. So depending on where they finish in their respective conferences is how they determine who will be invited. That match-up would be pretty sexy for the Bowl promoters and I think other bowls may shy away from A&M because of the 'Farewell to Fran' tour.. UH missed their opportunity to go back to the Liberty Bowl after that Tulsa fiasco...

Don't get me wrong - I'm not counting them out. It would be huge attendance wise for the Bowl. I think it's more likely they'll be at the Sun Bowl or Independence Bowl or something.

And the Coogs aren't out of it. Rice needs to somehow beat Tulsa this weekend. If that happens and the Coogs win, they've got a shot.

I would not be shocked if Rice beats Tulsa. Rice throws the ball down field, Tulsa is miserable at defending the long ball. UH has more of a lateral passing game.

Plus, Rice wants to hang one on Graham.

We'll go to see the Coogs. We have plenty of tickets and 2 Platinum spots (we're using both spots). We'll toss down for a full tailgate :)

My extra tickets will be sold with priority to Blue Crew members willing to tailgate :)

Bill, I have you down for 2. Currently taking a headcount for our corner - a lot of people are out of town.

Opponents in the mix for the Texas Bowl vs UH include TCU, Colorado, and Air Force. We probably won't know for sure until the BCS selections are made.

Excerpt from the Houston Texans e-mail:


The Cougars' side will be on the east side of Reliant Stadium. On the field level, those sections would be 122-134. In the Verizon Wireless East Club Level, those sections would be 329-346.

Oh that was mean...FUNNY but mean. I'm 112 years old NOW! I'm sure Fitz remembers me. After he wouldn't let me try out for the team (in violation of NCAA regs) I starting writing a column in the Daily Cougar and gave him a hard time whenever I saw him. Besides I put a curse on UH football to never win a bowl game in my lifetime. The Dread-head curse has been in effect since my graduation.

All you have to do is show up at the try-out.
Nobody says you have to finish it! :devilpig:

I hope there's a 20-yr limitation to your curse. :)

The man refused to time me...for the 40. Like I said, more than likely I probably wasn't going to make the team, but he didn't even give me a chance. I have nothing but contempt for the man. How do you feel about the people who took a whiz on YOUR childhood dreams?

Challenge him to run a 40.
If he doesn't accept the challenge, he loses!http://texanstalk.com/forums/images/icons/icon10.gif

Childhood dream or fantasy? http://texanstalk.com/forums/images/icons/icon10.gif
Well, you did say you'd probably won't cut it.

All kidding aside, we know what he did was wrong.
So let it out and let it go. You'll feel better (I hope)! :specnatz:

My dream was to play college football. I had no delusions of making it to the pros and realistically I probably wouldn't have made it. If I HAD made it I probably would have been a 3rd stringer and wouldn't have made it onto the field unless we were ahead by 100 points. I just wanted to be able to look back at my college experience and tell my children that I was on my college team. That's all.
Had I run the 40 and NOT made it, I would have been able to say I tried and my own ability (or lack thereof) was the reason I didn't make it. I can't say that. Thanks for the suggestion. It's duly noted, but no. I was the one whose dream was pissed on by a guy who played in the USFL for 20 minutes and couldn't cut it in the NFL. It's my grudge and as is my right...I'm keeping it. Thanks for understanding.

I just called the Texans ticket office and Trey confirmed that there is cash parking. Apparently the big wigs changed their minds about a week and a half ago.... Thanks for sharing.
