    Just a tad. :) I also believe our defense is ridiculously under the radar as to how good they ARE ...AND what they are BECOMING. Maybe the Bearcats get in once ...We'll dictate pace, though.
    Herman will protect Greg Ward Jr, pulling him for Postma at some point.
    And I expect him to not have to dig too deep into that playbook.

    All good reasons to like the UNDER, also?

    Plus, it's a Thursday game. (isolated)...and your average fan still associates UH with just offense...high scoring games. Many folks LOVE that OVER.

    While I still feel like the spread is the easy play, there is a case to be made for the UNDER also.

    Go Coogs!

    Eat em up!

    Their Qb is decent Hayden Moore. Hopefully we can get some pressure on him

    OU has a decent QB, and we certainly got pressure on him.

    I for one am very nervous about tonight's game. Cincinnati is 7-1 on Thursday night games, and the Houston Cougars haven't played well there in the last decade. Whoever wins the turnover battle and field position will win this game.

    Go Coogs!

    Decent but inexperienced. Hasn't faced a d-line of our caliber yet. Hoping pressure will cause him to make mistakes. Jackboyz are due for some INTs.

    This is absurd.

    Cincy is a talented team and I doubt anyone blows them out this season by 25 points, not to mention nearly 40 points.

    UH is very good because their lines on both sides of the ball are elite.

    UH by 3.

    Ward and Catalon have been resting for almost two weeks now. Should be chomping at the bit, hoping Ward wants to make a Heisman mark today to keep pace with Louisville QB.

    Will be at Lucky's in EaDo to watch it.

    There is a lot of juice on this game nationally.

    It has been discussed a surprising amount nationally.

    A dominating win will only help the Cougars cause with recruits and even more national coverage.

    If the Cougars keep winning AND get into the Big XII, there is an expectation by other programs that UH will have an exceptional class of recruits.

    The closer we get to the start of the game the more nervous I'm getting for the Cougars. Not sure if they can pull through against a really tough opponent on the road. Cincinnati is no joke.
