We made CBS Sports’ bottom 25 at #23. Not only did we make the list, we made the headline.
College football rankings: Houston joins Bottom 25 after Cougars stumble through Big 12 debut game
Houston lost at lowly Rice in Week 2 and was just throttled at home by TCU. Frankly, the Cougars are fortunate not to be 0-3 as they snuck away with a 17-14 victory over UTSA in Week 1. Year 1 in the Big 12 looks like it could be a long and ugly ride. We’ll see if fifth-year coach Dana Holgorsen survives it. (NR)
Also made the summary comments:
Houston, playing its first season in the Big 12, cracks the ranking at No. 23 after a 36-13 home loss against TCU. The Horned Frogs more than doubled up the Cougars in total yards and nearly tripled them in total first downs while waltzing to a dominant victory. It was a rude welcome to life in the Big 12 for Houston and a sign that this program is not positioned for early success in a more difficult league.
Of course, the warning signs were already there in a 43-41 at Rice, but the lackluster performance against TCU suggested that fifth-year coach Dana Holgorsen’s squad may be the worst of the league’s four first-year schools.
No way!!! I thought all the new schools were similarly disadvantaged and lagging years behind the b12.
After 3 games it looks like it would take some time to be AAC ready much less B12 ready
BYU looks like the only B12 ready new school. Kendal Brile’s torches Belk’s D for 560 yards.
I sure hope we turn it around. I now realize what a homer i am. I would have bet money Manjack had a good catch in the end zone. That wasn’t even close to being good. Rose colored glasses.
Ironic that both coaches named Dana made the Bottom 25.
UTEP is #17.
I have no words for how much the Holgi era has sucked.
I guess I’ll select the Muted option on this thread.
Well at least we are ranked. But a win over Sam could drop us out lol
Might not need to worry about that.
We are lucky that we won a game. That being said, I think if we can get an interim head coach and get our QB to carry the team, we can still finish the season with 4-5 wins. If we stick with Holgy I expect 2-10 or at best 3-9.
I’ve attended all the games so far and couldn’t stomach watching the videos afterwards, is CDH still fiery on the sidelines? I never see him at the games since my seats are on the visitor side
We’ll move up in the rankings when we lose to Sam.
Note: Sam Houston was #22 on the list last week, but I guess the bye week gave other teams like UH a chance to pass them.
Note 2: Houston and Virginia (#10) are the only 2 P5 schools on the list. UVa was the only P5 last week at #18
So…Pez has extended both our football and baseball coaches as they contine to destroy those programs.
Is this his criteria
Decreased fan support…
Trouble winning consistently…
Doing less with more resources ever provided…
Embarassing the program nationally…
Pez…here’s your extension Mr Baseball and Football coach
