Houston Drops 3-0 Decision to Cincinnati
Cougars host East Carolina in a noon first serve on Saturday

I just can’t understand the struggles of both our Lady Cougar Volleyball and Soccer programs. It’s just unacceptable. Imo, it’s time to make coaching changes in both.

Volleyball is baffling. Knew they’d be young and probably struggle a bit, but they aren’t even competitive. I like Coach Platt, but it might be time for a change.

Soccer is actually much improved this year. They aren’t elite, but they are also still very young. Pfau deserves another year to see if they can continue to improve.
