    You should be thanking me for 2 things. 1 - allowing Kyle Allen to go to UH (where his talents were wasted even more so than they were at TAMU). And 2 - for bringing SEC Football to the beautiful state of Texas.

    Aggy, pls stop.

    It sure is funny how things work really well in Houston...and then when entitled players/fanbases get involved, sh!t don't work out so well. Hmmmm...maybe the culture??? But, but, but...you did bring multiple SEC visitor-initiated ass kickings to the beautiful State of Texas. There's that.

    Stevenson to return


    Houston has forfeited three wins from the 2018 season as part of the sanctions self-imposed by the school following an investigation into academic misconduct.
    According to the NCAA, a former tutor wrote papers for two football players in exchange for money over the course of a six-week timespan during the 2018 season. With one of the players having competed while ineligible, the school self-imposed the three-game penalty. The Cougars' new record for that season is five wins and eight losses, and former HC Major Applewhite's record at the school is now 12-14. The players, who were not identified, were punished during this season and the tutor received an eight-year show cause from the NCAA.

    Must didn’t like the grade he received. Has a shot to go in 1st or 2nd rd after his senior year.

    Now we can finally move on from this cloud that hung over the program the past few months. One player doesn't make a program.

    No brainer. Heisman quality player in a free market. Done. Now we have got to rely on a system to bring us back. We’ve been a one man offense for a while now if u ask me, from ward to king. Interesting to see what we do now.

    So apparently the redshirt thing was never Holgorsens idea. This was all D'eriq trying to maximize his draft stock.

    While I understand the motivation, I think it speaks volumes to his character that he had an escape plan ready for if his team struggled in 2019 (and told no one about it).

    Ed Oliver went 9th overall playing for a mediocre UH team. If you think you have to be on a 10+ win team to boost your draft stock, you must have little confidence in your abilities.
