Not only that, but we're still Houston. It's like would you rather be the HC at USC or TAMU?
If the money is the same (& we weren't outbidding anybody) it's not too hard to find a "more attractive" offer. I think we're making strides & before long we'll be a "destination" but no way Peyton Manning, or Tom Brady are coming to Houston.
If he said he's interested, he's just fanning the bidding war he "said" he wasn't interested in.
