JD Periscope: 19 January - mostly basketball / a little football

This is coming prior to the game against Memphis:

  • Previews the game a bit while showing warm-ups
  • Mentions the renovation of Hofheinz will begin right after the season
  • Fertitta Center opens in 2018-2019
  • OOC games will be at TSU while conference games will be at the Toyota Center
  • Rehashes the 2013 football season when the football team played at different venues
  • Mentions that the students had a tailgate with an open bar before the game tonight
  • Shows his wife
  • Devin Davis is still out - 11th game he’s missed
  • Morris Dunnigan was sick and didn’t play
  • 11 guys suited for the game
  • D’Eriq King was working out with the team yesterday, probably isn’t a lot that he can do. Plan is that he will be limited in the spring. Not expected to be in the mix for QB in the spring
  • Sells and Allen will be the QBs
  • Spring game will be mid-April, not official yet
  • Houston had a bad loss against UCF, really needed that win for resume building
  • Has SMU this weekend, and then three winnable games against Tulane, Temple, and UCF at home
  • Davis Timeline: Aggressive type of protocol towards the end of the month. Hoping to get him back for the UCF game at the beginning of February
  • No new renderings for the football practice facility. Facility being built closer to Scott street than what was originally shown
  • Pro day probably in March
  • Senior Bowl may be this weekend?
  • Pokes fun at Bassity who joined the Periscope session
  • JD did not attend the $1B Campaign; not invited
  • Doesn’t know if there were special guests other than Otis Birdsong tonight
  • Mentions that Dedric Lawson is probably the frontrunner for AAC POY
  • Believes CKS has taken his tie off every game - mentions how they track it in the media notes
  • Asked about incoming bigmen - mentions Fabian White and Brady
  • Thinks UH needs 24-25 wins with some quality wins to make the NCAA Tournament. Need to win against SMU, Cincy, UCONN again, Memphis tonight :cry: Probably make the Semis of the AAC tourney
  • Discusses the article he wrote last night about CKS and Tubby Smith’s relationship: UH’s Kelvin Sampson, Memphis’ Tubby Smith are longtime pals matching wits
  • Next Arkansas game may be either 2 years at Fertitta Center, or next year at the Toyota Center with the series extended a couple years
  • Game of the Century 49th Anniversary is tomorrow
  • Hard to schedule teams because they don’t want to play at Houston. Texas has no interest in playing Houston.
