Thank you, Coogs, for putting UH basketball back on the map this year.
You scrapped and clawed and gave everything you could for us. You beat top 10 teams and didn’t lose a game on a home floor that wasn’t even yours. This is the most fun I’ve had watching college basketball in years and it was all because of this team.
I believe that the future is bright for this program and that in the next 2-3 years we may go on to bigger and better things. However, I won’t forget this team.
Thank you, Rob, Nura, Wes, and Devin for buying in and help build the blocks. Thank you for the long days and nights battling for this program and, the sometimes handful, of fans in the stands. I know there were times you didn’t know if it was worth it, but, I hope, by the end, you saw that it was.
Thank you Coach Sampson and your staff. You truly have put to bed any questions about whether you’re the right person for the job. Without you, we wouldn’t be feeling this heartache right now or any of the joy leading up to it. For many of us, we no longer wonder if next year will be the year, and now know that we will be in the conversation from the get go. It’s nice being relevant again, and it’s all because of you.
Thank you Coogs, thank you fans, thank you players, thank you alumni, thank you. It’s been a fun season and I can’t wait for next year to begin.
