Default Houston Cougars 2012

Coogs open up vs Texas St tonight. The last time they met UH won 68-28. Here are some of the keys to the season:

1. David Piland at QB I hope the redshirt year helped him get stronger and he has to keep his interceptions down.

2. Defense has to continue the improvment from last year. I know based on how UH plays offense they are going to give up some yards because they are on the field so much, but they need to cause turnovers and give the offense extra possessions and limit the big plays of the other team.

3.WR play- The new WR have to grow up in a hurry and I believe they will be ok, but the guys they are replacing left a mark on the UH record books and the new crew could still be solid and not live up to what the prior WR's did.

4. The new coaching staff has to make this season a smoth transition. The last coaching change it took the team about a month to adjust. I don't think it will be that bad this time because they will not be putting in a new radical system like last time.

I am thinking 9-3 for this season and possibly making the CUSA Championship game if all breaks right.

So it appears the 2012 Houston Cougars aren't going to be doing that whole "defense thingy"?

Herv, other than a stand-out player here or there, it's been a long time since the Coogs had a *ahem* "Defense thingy"!

Are we not even on Texas State's level? That was quite a disappointing game on Saturday Night but you have to give Dennis Franchione a lot of credit. He'll lead Texas State to a bowl game sooner rather than later. And we're stuck with a mediocre head coach in Houston. I sure do miss Art Briles and Kevin Sumlin.

Houston offensive coordinator resigns after upset loss

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/houston...51--ncaaf.html

Quote:
University of Houston offensive coordinator Mike Nesbitt resigned on Monday, two days after the Cougars' upset loss to Texas State.

"We wise Mike the best in his future endeavors and thank him for his contributions to the program," coach Tony Levine announced Monday.

Assistant coach Travis Bush will call plays and had spent the previous three seasons as co-offensive coordinator at Texas State.

Houston scored 13 points in Saturday's loss, tied for the second-fewest in a game since 2007.

Levine replaced Kevin Sumlin, who guided Houston to a 12-1 record and TicketCity Bowl victory last season. Houston finished the 2011 season ranked 18th in the AP poll

Man, Nesbitt has a one game career as UH OC.......a record opening day crowd, Texas State in the house, big expectations for the season, and a 17 point loss that you were never really in the game after halftime. I am not saying it is all Nesbitts fault, but SOMETHING had to be done, head coach isn't going to fire himself, the defense did adjust at halftime and only gave up 3 points in the second half. If UH does not win 7 games and get a bowl bid, this is not a successful season.

This game ranks among the worse 5 losses in UH history.

Just found out that if you bet $100 for Texas State to beat UH straight up you would have won $11,500. Son of a *****!! Kicking myself right now for not putting money down on the game.

UH QB cannot get drafted & is re-assigned to PS. If UH wants to matter going forward it needs to commit to a pro style offense that gives players chance to succeed in NFL, then high school standouts will want to come here.

Default Re: Houston Cougars 2012

I actually sent an email to Mack Rhoades, the AD at UH. It was strongly worded but very respectful. The next thing I know, the OC is strongly urged to resign and is gone the very next day.

Rhodes did return my email within a few hours and expressed his agreement with my disgust and thanked me for my support.

We tried that once and it was an utter fail. Thanks but no thanks. Its whomever the coach is at UH's job is to win games not prepare players for the pros. We can't recruit the top level talent it takes to run a pro set. When UH has been successful its because we have used an offense that equalizes the talent when we play more talented teams.

Check out the rivals.com team site for UH, it should be there but I think it's only Rivals best guess.

I forgot the name of the coach but he moved away from recruiting Houston-area guys to players outside the city and that's the reason why it wasn't a success.

The key to having a successful football program is to have a decision maker that knows a thing or two about football. Take for example Michigan post-Carr era:

They had a five-star rated quarterback in Ryan Mallet who was the next best thing and yet, they go out and hire Rich Rodriguez whose offense requires a speedy, mobile quarterback instead of a pure pro-style player.

The city of Houston could also help by improving the area around UH and UH can also try to make the school more attractive (e.g. better dorms, more assistance for players, something along these lines).

Coaches have to be able to either A.) Sell the program (e.g. Alabama) or B.) Sell the school and let the school's reputation be the convincing factor (e.g. Michigan, Cal-Berkley) or both.

Besides this, you will end up with one to two-star athletes who just want to play ball and attend classes and most likely won't be top-rated NFL players.

Kim Helton is the coach you are thinking of. One of the worst coaches in the history of college football.
