Assuming we beat Tulane, Navy and win whatever Bowl we are in, do we get votes at the end of the season? Man, that would cap off a decent first year for the HC and help going into next years campaign!
We'll get votes if we win out. I don't think we'll be ranked.
Sure wish we would've come to an agreement to play that game we missed against UTSA since neither of us will be in our respective conference championship games. The potential to go 10-3 sounds really nice, especially considering where we were 3-4 weeks ago.
We'd have to smoke everyone but it's possible. But cracking the receiving votes area up to the low end of the top 25 would be a great way to wrap up the season.
First time Houston would not be ranked in three seasons.
The future is bright. We clearly have our next QB. The recruiting classes are good and we have the indoor practice facility. Unlike in the past we dont have to apologize for the conference we are in. The American isnt the SEC but it is very good.
Good days ahead.
Today's AP poll has the bottom 3 teams all with 3 losses - ISU, NC ST and LSU.
LSU Lost to Troy and home, equally as glaring as the Tulsa loss.
So I'd bet a 3 loss UH team is ranked at 25 over several 4 and probably 5 loss teams by January.
I think it depends on how our opponents finish and who we play in a bowl game. If we finish 9-3 but none of our opponents are ranked, we will have votes but not enough to finish in the top 25. On the other hand, if King and Car continue to play well, a 9-3 finish most likely means we start out in the top 25 next season.
LSU may have one bad loss; but the other 2 were to Miss State and 'Bama and they also beat Auburn.Iowa State beat OU and TCU.NC State's 3 losses are to South Carolina, Notre Dame, and Clemson.
Wasn't saying UH is deserving right now but once the season is done a 9-3 record should get them to 25 ranking over 4 and 5 loss teams. Even now five teams ranked from 20-25 have 3 losses with 3 or 4 gms left to play.
The LSU comment was to say the voters can forgive laying an egg while still ranking you. That will come into play if UH plays great in these last 3 games.
I had the succesful season mark at 8-4, and while there have been tough times I see real promise in Applewhite. I think we all wanted more before the season, and rightfully so. I do believe we overestimated our defensive capabilities due to Big Ed. Our LB corps and DB corps were decimated. Hopefully we have some real depth there next year to compete for the AAC and NE6 bowl again.
Decimated ? Teams lose players every year.
I think we over estimated the coaching staff.
Losing our best receivers amd oline players after this year is going to be tough
I don’t think anyone overestimated the coaches except for the haters.
Yes, coaching has no effect on team results !
Yup, and the only person that they are giving credit to is DK4 as if he "fixed" all of our issues by himself. lol
