Coogs appear 21st on the list
Wins matter. Schools that pack their OOC schedules with patsies are rewarded. And schools who sell out for $1M to take a loss are penalized.
10 years down the road, no one cares that you played Grambling or Lamar or Texas State. They just see 3 more checks in the wins column.
Imagine if we skipped the Levine era.
Tony era was 21-17. We would be 70.6% - between Georgia and Mich St.
Houston has won 104 games since 2006.
Only 16 teams have won more.
#1 among American schools.
#2 among Texas schools behind TCU.
#3 among nonP5 schools behind Boise and BYU. And I predict we pass BYU this year.
Actually, his last year UH was 8-4. So it didn’t effect the overall record that much. But yeah, ever since UH has had BABS as HC , UH program has taken pff.
During that same time period we were 11-6 against teams that were ranked in the top 25 and we were 3-0 against teams ranked in the top 5.
Numbers that will blow you away, since 2008:
Record against Top 25 teams:
Houston 11-6 .647 winning percentage
Texas 17-31 .354 winning percentage
Texas A&M 16-30 .347 winning percentage
Record against Top 5 teams:
Texas A&M 2-7
Who knew we had a much better record against ranked teams and had more wins against top 5 teams than UT and A&M.
Hey we are pretty good and have been for awhile.
