The O-line and secondary aren’t performing the way they need to for the team to have a 10+ win season. I think most of us knew they were the big question marks coming in to the season. Some mentioned RB but I was not and am not worried about them.
The O-line is still very young. Patrick Paul who everyone says has NFL talent gets a lot of penalties and he NEVER played O-line in HS. He was a DL. The O-line has 0 seniors on the roster. Freeman is a Jr. who did not play much last year because we had Cody.
Secondary has a number of Srs and I didn’t expect our corners to be Williams and Jones clones, but I thought they would do better than what we are seeing.
Also, all of you on this board who are melting down, GET A LIFE. I want UH to do well in sports but, good grief, it’s a game. Lighten up. Go out tomorrow and visit some of the many, many nursing home patients who never get visited. You’ll feel better and gain a bit of perspective.
We have a good — but not great — team, and we played a better team today. So, KU definitely deserves more than some of the credit. However, our lack of discipline also definitely hurt us and helped KU (like it helped Texas Tech). I’m fact, we are among the most penalized college football teams in the country, and that was true through the first two games. So, it didn’t (sadly) surprise me that that trend continued into this game too. One can get away with such lack of discipline against average or lesser teams, but not against good teams like the one we encountered today.
I wouldnt use the words “saw it coming” but this was a very real possibility for me… but switch the kansas loss with utsa…
im normally the resident preseason overhyper when i think we will be good …but i did almost non this offseason. i never felt good about this team, and previously posted that i wouldnt put too much emotional investment in this team till we were atleast 3-0… which was smart, as im honestly not that upset and would have been otherwise
