    D'Eriq's injury hurts... WR might be a weak spot this year.

    Texans could use him since they're short on WR's while Fuller is out.

    Defense is A+. Glad we have an opportunity to fix the offense before conference play starts.

    They list him as 3rd string but it wouldnt hurt to see what he can do. Kyle Allen looks like a statue back there. Postma and King atleast give them that run/pass option.

    Did yall see Major Applewhite's twitter meltdown, lol (i'm sure it was probably his kids or he sat on his phone but it was pretty funny) i'll post the pic once I create a link.

    Also William Jackson III picked off Aaron Rodgers for a TD yesterday.
    And Case Keenum having a field day 25/33 369 yards, 3 TDs

    We see why A&M was so frustrated with Allen. You see flashes of why this guy was a top prospect and then just like that he looks horrible.

    Postma/Allen is eeriely similar to the Applewhite/Simms drama.

    You have to think Major understands why Postma should get the call.

    looking ahead we do have some games against ranked teams. with usf currently at #18 and memphis could potentially crack the top 25 by the time UH plays them in a couple of weeks.

    I was telling my son the same history lesson, however Major had really good success before he lost his spot to unproven Simms. Postma has been good but only a small sample size Postma has 4TD in NCAA compared to Allen and his 37TD. But name recognition it fits. The broadcasters were shocked at the arm Postma had on display Saturday. Postma needs to start if the O-line is going to struggle like they did.

    He was hurt during the offseason so I doubt he's had much practice at QB.

    Exactly. Glad we can sort this drama out hopefully before we face ranked conference opponents.

    Keenum earned a lot of street cred last night stepping in and beating the bears, throwing darts, should extend his career well past his 2 year contract as a viable backup.
