Future OOC Scheduling


(Dustin K) #1

Besides Texas and Texas A&M, who would you like to see us schedule (assuming no availability issues and these are all home and home)?

Alabama, LSU and Notre Dame come to my mind.


(RICK LAIRD) #2

I want both usc’s.


(PMM) #3

I for one, could care less about ut or a$m.

Arkansas would be fun as well as Miami.
Both might be achievable, but ONLY a home and home with ours being at TDECU.


#4

Ohio State. The story line of the former pupil versus the former teacher would be more than enough to make that game interesting.


(Mike Higdon) #5

I’d take LSU, Alabama, & ND and you could keep UT & aTm. I’d like to throw in Ohio State, Southern Cal, and Georgia also.


(PMM) #6

They all would be great…except those teams just do not go on the road against teams like UH.


#7

Yet, OU did.


#8

Ohio State is #1 on my wish list, as well. The script writes itself, and I’ve noticed that we have a little bit of respect from their fans. It would be enjoyable, and I think the typical “G5” trash talk would be minimal. A lot of them watch our games and know we can play.

I’d also like to start playing Pac 12 schools, and show them what we’re about. I know we have Zona coming up, which is good. I’d also like to see Arizona State, Cal, Stanford, USC, UDub. Talk about some awesome road trips.


(PMM) #9

OU is playing us at TDECU !!!

To me that is home and home.

They did this to make $$$ twice in this deal !


#10

I see it as a home and home, and as a win/win situation for everyone. They get to make some money and get to recruit Houston, and we get put on the national stage and our fans get to experience a legitimate, CFP-level atmosphere in our own backyard.


(Nick K) #11

Home and home with LSU my number one choice.
Arkansas would be great play the hogs again.
I would play in reliant for these games just like OU
Norte dame would be number 3 but I would rather get them in the post season


(David) #12

OU scheduled this game when Tony was coaching and before the resurgence last year and Peach Bowl win. We will never know for sure but I wonder if OU would do the same deal now knowing what they do about the current state of UH football?

I think B10 programs are ideal. Ohio State would be great but I am fine with Michigan State, Iowa, etc. as solid teams and B10 schools don’t seem to mind going on the road against non-P5 schools.


(Joseph) #13

I want at least one TOP 3 & one Top 5 from any P5 every year.


#14

Ohio State would be an awesome roadie to Columbus! Any PAC school - Utah, Oregon… all of them. Really, any top 20 school in my book.


#15

“OU is playing us at TDECU”

Wait, wut… lol
O_o


(Jay C.) #16

I would take 2 for 1s at TDECU with:

  1. LSU - No-brainer for both schools IMO. LSU has a huge alumni base in Houston, and we have had great success recruiting south Louisiana in recent years. Tailgating/gameday atmosphere is a plus.

  2. Ole Miss - Two words: The Grove. Tailgating Mecca of the universe.

  3. Washington - New stadium, program on the rise, unique locale, and COOL WEATHER.


(Mike Higdon) #17

EECOOG69, I know they wouldn’t go for it. I was just throwing out my OOC wish list in answer to the original question. My reality list would look a bit different.


(CoogDentist) #18

Since the big 12 believes it owns the Houston market I would turn it around on them and only schedule SEC teams. Then watch and see how quickly they come calling.


#19

I think you just announced the National Title game…:wink:


(PMM) #20

The guy stated that OU scheduled us for a “home and home”…

Playing them @ NRG and then playing them at their stadium is NOT a “home and home” to me !!!

UH has a FB stadium for a reason. The game @ NRG is NOT a UH home game !!!

So, my comment about OU playing us @ TDECU was sarcasm !!!

Right over your head !
