Numbers from this year are going to be what’s most telling. If you notice, our numbers didn’t rise until after mid point in the season. Herman was an unknown commodity at the beginning of the season, so we didn’t pull the numbers that we could have pulled if people knew we were going to go on a 13-1 tear.

We beat Oklahoma in the opener, at least 4 of the top 20 games in Houston will be UH. It just depends on the amount of broadcast network games we get. We already know we’re going to be on cable several times.

It would be interesting to see national numbers compared to Cincinnati given they are our competition for P5 invites.

These are very important and revealing numbers. Houston, without any regional rivalries to boost numbers, smashes the ratings of the Big 12 in networks games and is pretty much even in cable games. We bring eyeballs.
