    The new starting quarterback for the Houston Texans is:

    Matt Schaub

    Spelled: "Schaub"

    Sch like in the word "school". The letters au like the symbol for gold. And a b on the end, like in the word "Bob."

    In fact, his last name rhymes with the word "Bob."

    Pretty soon, typing his name will feel like second nature.

    Oh, and for good measure, here is his Wiki:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Schaub

    Thank you for your kind consideration of this matter.

    Good luck, Mr. Schaub, we are all counting on you!

    Wait, so its more like "Scobb" and no "sh" sound of any sort? And here I've been saying a form of "Shobb" this whole time.

    Nope, I didn't say that. "Shobb" is perfect to say, just not to write as his name.

    Ahh, ok I see. When you said the "school" part I thought you were referring to the pronunciation. I guess that is what I get for skimming posts.

    Thanks Texans_Chick, I was wondering how to pronounce Schaub's name.
