UH mailbag: Is a winning season possible after debacle vs. Rice?


Q: Do we still fire the coaches that go 8-4? Is the writers’ strike impacting the quality of Dana’s postgame excuses? How many kidneys do we need to sell to fund Dana’s buyout? Can we schedule extra non-conference games and start the basketball season early? — @coog57 via X

JD: 1. Seven years later, UH president Renu Khator’s “We’ll fire coaches at 8-4” comment still resonates with the fan base. 2. No comment. 3. I do not participate in illegal activity. 4. You want to load up Kelvin Sampson with more games given what the Big 12 schedule looks like?

Wow Duarte.

Lol, “writers strike”, that’s really funny :joy:

Theres 10 games left so definitely possible albeit unlikely



Anything is possible, but I’m not traveling to Lake Charles to wager on Coogs having a winning season.

The positive right now is compared to last year in the aac the chance to get to a big game would be gone. This year even with the loss to Rice (we were only favored by 8 not 28) there is no limit.
