    This team is legit boring to watch. Even if they weren't losing I'd be snoozing.

    Way too inconsistent on offense and the secondary is hit-or-miss (no pun intended).

    Such a bad loss and our offense smh. Looks like we were looking ahead to Memphis instead of beating Tulsa.

    Not surprising. We are going to be mired in mediocrity in the applewhite era, but if we can make a bowl game that will be sufficient. I'd give Allen the keys to the car for better or for worse so that he prepared to take this in 2018.

    We were horrendous all across the board - coaching, play calling, offense, defense, etc. Blown opportunity with all the losses by ranked teams especially Navy and San Diego State.

    Houston: Easily the most out-of-nowhere score on Saturday (well, maybe if you count Washington-Arizona State finishing on Sunday) was Houston losing to Tulsa, 45-17. The Cougars, the self-proclaimed flagship of any conference they’ve ever been in, got absolutely curb-stomped by a Tulsa team that came into the game 1-5 and had lost to Tulane by 34 points just a week earlier. So what happened? Nothing, other than Houston just got whipped, which will probably not please “Ten Win” Tilman Fertitta, the mega-booster who, upon hiring Major Applewhite last December, gleefully reminded people that Houston was the kind of program that would fire coaches for only winning eight games.

    One of the worst defeats in UH history. Not a good sign in Applewhite's first season. Hope he can right the ship before he has one of the shortest careers in UH history.

    Applewhite better succeed because with Tilman playing with his new toy in the Rockets the idea of Yurachek hiring the next coach scares me to death.

    Why? Yurachek is the AD so it's his job to be successful at finding the next guy to lead this team.

    Tilman himself said that he'd rather focus on his business and let the people in charge take care of the sports decisions. If money is an issue, he can step in like has in the past.

    It scares me because he learned under Mack Rhodes and he gave us Levine and Dickey.

    Yurachek was brought in specifically to be a departure from Rhodes, not learn from him.

    He was hired as COO in Feb 2014 basically to take the hirings-and-firings part of the job away from Mack, who had been pretty terrible at it.

    Rhoades was a great fundraiser and decent businessman, but his sports operations skills were very lacking.
