Reveling at Texas's expense is always good for a lark.
Actually reviewing their record this decade shows how immensely mediocre they've become.
This would be their 3rd consecutive season missing a bowl game, and their 5th losing record out of 8 tries.
(Conversely in the 00s they won at least 10 gms every year aside from 9 wins in 2000).
With all the revenue in the world, their own network, overflowing fan support, access to nationwide recruiting, history, school pedigree, no sanctions recovering from, and this is what they deliver.
2010 - 5-7
2011 - 8-5
2012 - 9-4
2013 - 8-5
2014 - 6-7
2015 - 5-7
2016 - 5-7
2017 - 3-4
Losing records per decade from the Royal era:
1960s - 0 (never lost more than 4 gms)
1970s - 0 (only 1976 lost more than 4)
1980s - 3 ('86 - '89)
1990s - 2
2000s - 0
2010s - 4 (5 this season)
From Royal's start in 1957 through 2009, they had a total of TWO seasons with 7 losses.
They've tripled that total in the last 8 years.
No matter how far UH is under-performing, I can only imagine what long time UT fan is going through.
