    This was a hangover after defeating USF....SMU isn't the same team. UH hung 50+ on USF and suddenly couldn't execute on offense......just a bad hangover. That falls at the hands of the HC b/c he didn't keep his players grounded.

    Hope they get their act together now that Temple is up next.

    How long is Major Applewhite’s contract? Just asking for some Cougar friends.

    Without Ed, there is nothing our defense can do. What a wasted season this was.

    Our crappy season continues. Despite the win last night, D'Eriq King is gone for the year with a knee injury. (No ACL though)

    And of course the Applewhite-Ed episode on the sidelines.

    No to mention, we are down to the 3rd string defensive line.

    What’s going on with Oliver? I saw that he got into it with the coach. And Tune looked good there at the end.

    There are many who think Oliver is ready to go back in play but is reluctant to do so because he is afraid of getting re-injured before the Draft.

    Ed's injury this season all started with a cheap shot by Navy. It was absolutely intentional and flagrant. I hope we put 80 on them next season. Run it up! Run it up!
    And I hope Army blasts the hell out of Navy.

    Better question is would you have played a down of college ball at all this season if you were Ed?

    Kinda where i'm at as well. If you're going to do something like this Bosa kid and now Ed Oliver, Its pointless to suit up for the season..just don't play.

    It's actually most likely detrimental to the team to have half-assed showed for the team's presumably massive investment in your participation.

    If you ain't really in it just stay home. I'll take a half-assed talent fully committed over a fully talented half-ass commitment.

    Just got to see a bit before leaving for work but he looks like NFL lineman. Scheme diverse, one or two gap. Also still looks less than 100%, is he playing injured? Actually intrigued with several Cougars, lol.

    Anyway if he slips towards end of first where Texans now appear destined, might be in running to mentor in Watt’s footsteps? Much as #1 need is LT, Ed could be BPA.

    Coogs defense is decimated and it shows. Tackling is horrendous. The offense is moving it with a True Freshman QB and staying in the game. It's going back and forth in the 4th.

    Well, he played the first half. It looks like they are sitting him the 2nd half. Appears to be pre-determined course of action.

    Our 3rd string defensive line just can't compete

    Injuries have completely gutted this team.

    I thought he was one of the top ranked players in the draft? #2 overall by ESPN? Don't see him falling that far

    Early, happens all the time. Injury, character issues for some war rooms etc.etc. Thought Chubb would go to Browns or Giants and he was clean all around but dropped to Denver.
