    If you crop out the repurposed corporate gift clock, that looks like some kind of maintenance crew boss taking a break on the set of a Michael Bay film set in Miami, likely featuring more Russians and rappers than robots.

    If you’re looking for a reason to watch a Cougars game in the boring Holgorsen era, this guy is a good one. Very entertaining player.

    He is amazing one of the best returners we have had he played more snaps than normal on offense last night since we were playing Navy and thank goodness he did because that bomb he caught won the game. I expect him to be on defense much more in the coming weeks. He will still return punts so it wouldn't shock me if he had a few more td's in him.

    Getting to watch UH beat Navy every year is something I'll miss once they join the tattered ruins of what was once the Big 12.

    The Cougars have a fairly easy schedule.

    I think they may lose to Tulane or SMU but it is possible that they could go 11-1 this year and likely secure another year of security for the drunkard.

    We have the easiest schedule probably in forever, no Cincy, no UCF, extra weak opponents non conference, but 11-1 is a tad bit optimistic. I think we will have our hands full Friday night at Tulsa. If we win there, I could see where a case could be made that we end the year with a winning record but not anywhere close to 11-1.

    I like (and also kind of hate) your optimism. However... every game on the schedule other than SMU and UConn are basically coinflips. We ain't that lucky. This is gonna be a bumpy ride.

    I didn’t say I think they will finish 11-1 but they will be favored in all but 2-3 games on their schedule. If they finish sub .500%, they need to have security escort their head coach off the school grounds.

    They may well find a way to blow games but my point was basically every game on their schedule is winnable.

    I have no idea if Tulsa is just this bad or we have turned the corner but wow what an unexpected result.

    Fresh off the 40-22 road win against Tulane there is reason to be optimistic. After losing to Tech, it is impressive that we have now won five games in a row to go 5-1 but still no wins against teams with winning records. Those five wins were against teams with a combined record or 7-18.

    After the coming bye week, four of the next 5 games will be against teams with winning records. ECU 3-2 then #24 SMU 5-0 both at home, then 1-4 USF and 3-2 Temple both on the road, then back at home for 3-2 Memphis. IMO we don't deserve to be ranked for now. If we are able to beat both ECU and SMU and go 7-1 and 5-0 in conference play? That's a big if but possible. We have to prove that we can beat teams with winning records.

    ECU, Temple, and Memphis should be wins, but this team is so inconsistent it's maddening.

    SMU is almost a no doubter blowout. I'm scared to even watch.

    If we win the next two, we absolutely deserve to be ranked.

    No doubt for whom? SMU is ranked and 5-0 for the first time in the minimum age to be president. Elder Dykes's Tike Hikes and Spikes for Likes from Coaches Polled Sans Sitting Governors and Regents "Meeting Payroll"

    SMU had their hands full with Navy. UH will either win handily or lose handily.
