It’s rained all day. It will be interesting to see the crowd tonight.

Not many here yet…with the rain/flooding, it will be a very late arriving crowd for those that make it.

Well im soaked. Forgot the pancho for the walk to the arena. Actually not that bad accept UH needs to fix the drainage on the parking lot and sidewalks. My shoes feel like jumped in a lake.


Wont be able to make this one

watchin from home


This side’s rim is just unlucky for us

Coogs can’t score to open a game like usual. Sampson might need to change the starting lineup. I don’t get it. Might be time to start White.

My Comcast espn3 tab hasn’t worked the last 2 games. Why have it as an option if the thing won’t work.

I would add White to that list.

Decent crowd now considering the rain.

I have a call into them about this and hope they will call back shortly. It worked previously but I’ve been down the past 2 games.

Nate Hinton needs to be a starter

I like this lineup a lot! White, Davis, Gresham, Hinton, and Jerreau.

Sometimes you want the freshman to watch by the coach and get some pointers before he goes in the game.
