Eric… I think you’re younger and you have great spirit and you’re exactly the fan we need. However… it’s very bad what’s happening. Talked to many long time die hards today and they all said the same thing that I am feeling… no patience for this especially when the conditions for success were already in place.
If something very clear does not happen, and if we don’t finish strong, the season ticket sales are going to PLUMMET. Already the lost revenue for the rest of the season will eclipse any buyout.
We got destroyed by SMU and beat down by Navy in a 3 game span. A couple bounces dont go our way against Tulsa last year and there would have been 3 straight losses. Perhaps you also forgot about being down 24-3 in the 3rd quarter in that next game at home against UCF, only for some Greg Ward magic to get us that win. If we didn’t have Ward last year, we would have been 6-6. Herman only did a good job coaching in 2 games.
Last year, we lost a lot of games against teams we were better than. We had an all-world QB then and several key defensive players. This year, we don’t have an elite QB and are learning at key positions. The only thing wrong with UH right now is are apathetic fan base, made worse by the boo birds that come out to call for firings of coaches who haven’t even had a full season to evaluate. It’s stupid. Why would anyone want to coach here?
I think you a misinterpreting what he is saying. I am a diehard fan and I have no patience for this. It doesn’t mean I will not be there for ECU and Navy. I will be. But it should be unacceptable not to be able to put a very good team every year when you sit in one of the hottest recruiting regions in the nation. And I agree with Pray10. We should not be a place to learn. We did not invest all the million dollars in facilities to hire people who are learning on the job.
I’d love him back as DC, but no sign he would have been a sure fire good HC. Not that big of a recruiter and not the strongest ties to get high level coordinators. I’m sure he will get his chance soon so we will see. Defense is the only positive at UT right now (and the punter, lol).
Failing? He is starting a true freshman quarterback and has been in every game Texas has played. They could very easily be 6-1 right now. With Baylor, Kansas and Tech along with TCU I could see them finishing with six wins…
