Here are some that are very close that you can purchase:

Curious how these shoes play with this new closure system that has no laces. Jordans are usually heavy as well in my past experiences.

The Nike way…overpriced, terrible shoes that look nice.

If I was rich I would get that pair… love me some Cougar Red!!!

That Gardner kid is really something. Leads the conference in scoring and is 2nd in rebounding as a freshman.

Too bad he stuck with his commitment to ECU. He was Nate’s AAU teammate.

Gardner is going to be something. I think I’m most impressed with how good he is at getting to the line and while i don’t think this game is gonna be close, how UH defends Gardner will be something worth watching.

Does Corey Davis, Jr. get the assignment to defend against Gardner?

Go Coogs. Peace.

I don’t like harping on attendance but it is not looking good with 10 minutes to game time. Hope it just one of those late-arriving crowds like usual. How the traffic out there?

It will obviously fill in some in the next 20-25 minutes…but where is everybody?

Inexcusable…you’d think we were 1-18.

Pitiful crowd!!! Houston fans suck as well as city we are 18-1 for God’s sake

Just terrible…Sampson walks out and probably thinks…”WTF?”

But that’s why we’re in the Big 12, SEC, etc.

Sound not working for anyone else?

Is the sound not working for others or is it just me?
