I was going to start this today but got busy with other things. Then I was going to start one during the game bit couldn't for fear of a jinx. Now I can....

Houston avenges their 31-13 loss to UCLA last year but a 38-34 nail-biter!!!!!

I look at things from a Cougar perspective but IMO it could have been worse for UCLA. They got away with multiple pass interferences and one blatant personal foul at a crucial time late in the game. The ref at the far side basically took the day off I guess.

No matter. Houston wins!!!!!! Great start to the 2011 season. Keenum will only get better next week.

The Cougars will probably be favored for the rest of their Charmin-soft schedule. Even undefeated likely won't get them a BCS bowl berth. But going undefeated would be very nice.

Case Keenum looked good in his return. His timing with his receivers was crisp and on target although there were a couple of drops. The running game was mixed in well with the play-calling and really kept the UCLA defense indecisive.

The defense still has a long way to go but Marcus McGraw and Sammy Brown looked good. Very windy game and it was fun watching a couple of the kick-offs sail through the up-rights.

I appreciated them letting the guys play, but there was some pretty iffy calls, IMO UCLA was the beneficiary more than not, but I was looking through my red-colored glasses. The late hit/elbow when Houston had that miserable drive with two minutes-three minutes left was pretty bad.

I thought they showed some signs on defense, but the result was fairly predictable in terms of scoring-against.

Awesome result is all I can say now. :splits:

It was a great atmosphere at Robertson yesterday. The crowd was into the game from the start and the coogs fast start kept them in the game all day. The size of UCLA's players was just unreal they had a TE that was listed as 6'8" 270 lbs.

But the Coogs defense is not unlike the Texans defense and can't stop anyone. Kevin Sumlin has done an outstanding job as the HC, but until they can start recruiting big guys up front, the "D" will always get "gashed"!!!!

For the first time time in what seems like a long time to me, Houston has three really talented running backs.

I loved how balanced they were against UCLA, but I would actually like to see them run the ball even more. I know Keenum is all world, but I think it would help even more if they gave the backs a few more carries.

I'm not suggesting that they change what they do, because obviously it works. But the backs got 22 combined carries against UCLA. I would like to see that number get closer to 30.

Just think what Keenum could do when those safeties start sneaking up. Plus, it would be nice to limit the hits that Keenum takes if they can afford to. I don't think he is made of glass or anything, but he is the one guy that they really don't want to lose.

The defense did enough to win. That's about all you can say. All they have to do is keep the other team from scoring as much as the Coogs, which seems easy enough.

texanhead08
09-08-2011, 09:37 PM
The reason they run the ball so well is their passing game is so potent. The defense has to account for the WR's and this opens ups the delays and draws for the RB's to gash the defense. UH struggles in short yardage situations for this reason.

I agree completely. I just think that this season Houston has more talented backs than they usually do, and they should take advantage of that.

That's what I'm watching now. At uhcougars.com there are many on the blog that can't get it either, I don't know why.

UNT came out fired up in their new digs. The Houston D needs to get it together.....someday. Also, for my taste they need to at least show a little run but they aren't (let alone trying to establisha run) and UNT is going after Keenum.

No, the offense was terrible by Cougar standards in the first half but they were balls to the wall from the end of the 3rd through 4th quarter. No team is going to stop them for 4 quarters if the defense keeps it within striking distance they will usually find a way to pull it out.

What a sick catch by Edwards to win it too.

I was at a Lamar University game tonight here in Beaumont and was tuned into espn.com on my Blackberry keeping track of the play by play for the UH game. I was in a piss poor mood most of the night.

The Coogs have always had good offensive-minded coaches and assistants come their way. Their defense, ehh not so much. If we struggle with the 3-4 than maybe we need to switch back to a 4-3 and we also need to do a better job of recruiting because a lot of the guys out their are undersized and or don't fit the scheme.

Yep. I have been rooting for UH football all my life. I'm a student there now and I'm on campus all week long. I know more about Alabama football and players (wife is an alum) than I do UH. Alabama football is on TV every week here in Houston, where we presumably wouldn't care. When I go to ESPN, SI, FOX Sports, etc., Alabama scores are on the front page. For UH, I have to dig. When you minimize a local team's local exposure in the media, you just end up with minimized local interest.

And that goes for the NFL blackout rules as well.

The Big East is preparing to reach far and wide to get to its newly stated goal of 12 football schools, with Boise State, Air Force, Houston and SMU all under consideration now as expansion candidates following a conference call of league chancellors and presidents today. Central Florida has also emerged as a primary targert on the league's wish list.

I think he's draftable. Not a high pick like Kolb was. What Keenum looks like under the center in all star games and workouts, as well as his combine metrics will determine how high he goes on the 3rd day of the draft. I'd say 5th or 6th round.

Personally, I like him a lot. He has great vision and a quick release. Very underrated athleticism. Arm strength, height, and gimmick offense are the marks against him.

That's not exclusively my opinion. That's been coming from NFL teams for years describing the "Air Raid" spread.

I say if it works, use it. But, I can see the NFL's point of view, in that it allows QBs to be more vulnerable. It's a part of most NFL offenses, but it's not the mainstay. Running the spread was a knock on Cam Newton during the draft process, last year. Though that didn't stop the Panthers from taking him #1. It will be a knock on Kennum, in that he's only run that offense in his 6 years at UH.

These games have all been played in the last few years now.

When I watched Keenum his first year, I saw a poised QB.

He almost helped us pull out a victory agaisnt Alabama on their home turf after we trailed something like 20 or 23 points with Blake Joseph at QB.

We were down on their 4 yard line when Case threw the INT with no time left on the clock and he was pressured.

The Coogs offense is not the Air Raid; it is a mixed bag of a lot of things.
In the off-season, I hope to have a thread about Keenum.
I don't know how much his size will hurt him in the draft, but the guy can flat out play.
His pre-snap read is really good; he knows how to take advantage of what the defense gives him and that's half of the battle right there!

bah007
10-25-2011, 04:38 PM
What's really going to hurt Keenum is that a lot of teams are going to overreact to the history of knee injuries and call him "injury prone". His size will also be a factor, along with the "system QB" label.

I think he is worth a look. There are definitely some better prospects out there but I think, in the right offense, Keenum is a guy that could be developed.

Case is not injury prone he never had any injuries his whole college career until he tore his ACL. The shoulder injury which helped him win the appeal for this year happened the last game of his high school career.

I will take a really close look at him in the off-season.

Let me just tell you this for now:

The other day, I rewatched the Oregon/UH game in 2007 when Keenum shared time with another QB (Blake Joseph), I counted him (Keenum) under center for 22 snaps and in the shotgun 37 times.

The last few years, the Cougars had gone with more of a shotgun spread look, but they still have formation in which they have 2 (or even 3) backs.
There are some similarities with what they do at Aubrun (Cam Newton).
I want to take a much longer look at those things in the off-season though!

Keenum has improved so much since then its amazing. I have never seen a UH QB improve more in his career than Case has. I do think he has gotten much better coaching since Sumlin and his staff came aboard in 2008.


Here is some highlights on 2008. Watch the lack of arm strenght on the one long pass compared to now. He has really gotten better.

Wow. Um, no. Go back through archives. I've been called a Longhorn hater by their butt-hurt Longhorn crowd here (after having said nothing over the course of their 2010 season). I have never been anything but a Cougar fan. Nobody reads post-one on this board I think.

Who started this "Houston Cougars 2011" thread I ask????????

My dad is an alum and took me to all football, basketball, and some UH baseball games. That means SWC dominance when we - yes - we - got there in '76. That means Phi Slamma Jamma courtside. That means being a Coog even though I didn't go there.

10-7 Houston over Texas' holier-than-thou team in '78 in Austin was a sweet memory. A classless Horn fan asked my dad, "you think you are pretty good, don't you?" and my dad said, "yep." causing that Horn fan to want a piece of my dad. He got what was coming. My dad and his brother took care of business, only they were sorry it had to happen in front of us kids. I never felt the same trouble in any other stadium in the SWC.

That story isn't the only Horn problem I had. Houston at Austin, run and shoot still running and shooting. Houston scores again making the game 66-15. The PAT attempt was mishandled and the holder picked it up in a panick. The result was PAT no good. I got hit on my shoulders by two old hags' umbrellas behind me telling me I should be ashamed of myself for rooting for a school that would go for two at 66-15. I tried to explain what really happened and for that I became a target for others abuse. Nothing much happened, but geezus.

Wow. Um, no. Go back through archives. I've been called a Longhorn hater by their butt-hurt Longhorn crowd here (after having said nothing over the course of their 2010 season). I have never been anything but a Cougar fan. Nobody reads post-one on this board I think.

Who started this "Houston Cougars 2011" thread I ask????????

My dad is an alum and took me to all football, basketball, and some UH baseball games. That means SWC dominance when we - yes - we - got there in '76. That means Phi Slamma Jamma courtside. That means being a Coog even though I didn't go there.

10-7 Houston over Texas' holier-than-thou team in '78 in Austin was a sweet memory. A classless Horn fan asked my dad, "you think you are pretty good, don't you?" and my dad said, "yep." causing that Horn fan to want a piece of my dad. He got what was coming. My dad and his brother took care of business, only they were sorry it had to happen in front of us kids. I never felt the same trouble in any other stadium in the SWC.

That story isn't the only Horn problem I had. Houston at Austin, run and shoot still running and shooting. Houston scores again making the game 66-15. The PAT attempt was mishandled and the holder picked it up in a panick. The result was PAT no good. I got hit on my shoulders by two old hags' umbrellas behind me telling me I should be ashamed of myself for rooting for a school that would go for two at 66-15. I tried to explain what really happened and for that I became a target for others abuse. Nothing much happened, but geezus.

UH can't get wrapped up in the what ifs. If they don't take it one game at a time they could drop one.

SMU beat TCU earlier this year and I imagine they will come to play. They got caught last week by Navy and I think it might be because they were looking ahead to this game.

Tulsa is the one I'm scared about. The only teams they have lost to are Boise St, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma St.

With all that said though, I like Houston's chances. As long as they keep Keenum on his feet they can score with anybody.

SMU Injury Update: Mustangs Won't Have Star RB Against Houston
SMU's chances of spoiling their old Southwest Conference rival Houston's undefeated season took a devastating blow today when it was announced that Zach Line, their star RB, will be out of the season with a toe injury.

Line, a 6'1 230 RB, had averaged 5.9 yards per carry while rushing for 1,224 yards and 17 TD's this season.

Using Line to control the clock and keep Case Keenum off the field would have been crucial for the Mustangs, as they have struggled against spread offenses similar to Kevin Sumlin's this season. They gave up 46 points to Texas A&M and 38 to Tulsa.

Coogs favored by 20.5

I really do hope that we get a bowl that is better than the Liberty bowl this year if we win out.

If we win out, we will be conf champ.

TCU needs to lose both games (against trashes) for Boise to have a chance to win the MWC.

The Big East won't have any team that will be ranked higher than us (right now none of them are in the top 25.

We get a BCS berth unless I read the rule wrong?

All the teams above the Cougars in the BCS standings won't "lose out". There's really no realistic scenario that would put UH in the BCS championship game. That's because of their soft schedule, more than anything else. Conference USA isn't strong, but a non conference lineup of UCLA, North Texas, La Tech, and small school Georgia Southern didn't help.

Any BCS game would be great for the school. Right now, they're probably looking at the Sugar Bowl. That's assuming the Coogs take care of Tulsa in Tulsa, who has won 12 straight Conference USA games. Likely their toughest game of the year, until they get to the bowl game. The opposite of UH, Tulsa played the toughest non conference schedule in the country (OU, OK State, Boise State). Ironic situation in that Tulsa will actually lose money if they knock off Houston and spoil the BCS bowl payday.

Regarding the SMU game, it should be noted that the Coog defense has improved greatly over the course of the season. That bodes well heading into Tulsa, and then the bowl game. And while I realize Keenum is having one of the greatest seasons ever for a college QB, there were some things that I saw from him Saturday that bothered me. I thought Keenum was too quick to pull down the ball and run in more than a few instances. Pass 40x per game, and you will take some hits no matter the protection. He may be starting to feel some of those. Sumlin might consider getting him out on rollouts more often, though he took his biggest hits outside the pocket against the Ponies.

I'm nervous about the Tulsa game. Tulsa could easily be undefeated if they had the same schedule as the coogs this year. Plus the UH offense seemed a little flat in the first half (or maybe SMU's defense is for real). I'm just worried that all of the powder puff games before SMU might not be a true indication of how good they really are.

EllisUnit
11-20-2011, 03:21 PM
Conference USA does not get a automatic bid for a BCS game, so the odds of us playing in the BCS championship game are 0. It is B.S TBH but what can ya do. if UH moves to the big east next season it will be easier to be ranked and they will be able to easily win the BCS if they go undefeated, but as far as this season goes, thats a big negative.

texanhead08

This is a huge game and it won't be easy but UH has beat them in Tulsa before and I feel much more confident with this defense than I did our defense in 2009. We are also doing a much better job of protecting the football this year and thats extremely important in big games on the road.
