I thought this was a pretty good game up until the last half of the fourth quarter. The turning point was the turnover when Postma got sacked, and then I didn’t agree with punting the ball was just under four minutes to go. The offense was moving the ball steadily down field and the Memphis defense was pretty gassed. And considering the UH defense was giving up touchdown lane on every possession it didn’t matter whether Memphis had 3:45 or 2:15 left in the clock , I knew they were going to score. Maybe it was just a gut feeling but there was no doubt in my mind they would score if we have the the ball back. I figured the best defense was the offense by keeping the Memphis oFf the field. Sort field or not, it didn’t matter.
We’re 4-3. Had we won last week against a weak Tulsa team I wouldn’t be too concerned about the morale of the team. What concerns me Is the lack of fan support from this pint going forward, and overall mood of a 4-3 team facing a touch schedule. Helll, even the Tulane concerns me.
Honestly, I’ve never been a fan of Applewhite. He’s just too conservative for me, and I’ve yet to see any halftime adjustments that give me hope that he’s the future of UH football. In fact, despite this the being the best second half offensively of the season and we still managed to lose. What does that say abut the coaching staff?
