That would bet a better representation of the point those people are trying to make.

I'm at work, have a final tomorrow and a interview on Thursday afternoon. I'll try to look at Thursday when I get home. I think I know what you are asking for. IIRC, with the exception of A&M, ratings are down across the board but I'll break it down by year and channel.

It appears you are. You use attendance and TV ratings as a barometer for popularity on one hand but throw it out when it doesn't favor your PoV. Even if basketball isn't very popular around here (and it obviously isn't), that's inexcusable attendance for a school that supposedly owns the Houston market.

It's freaking BBall in the state of Texas in Dec. You coog fans keep changing the goalposts to fit your agenda. 1st attendance does not accurately reflect the support that UH gets in Houston( 27K in the stands means so many more are at home watching on TV right?).

OK, so they move onto this article (which by the way is completely inaccurate. It appears it was written by the UH President who is pretty good at not telling the whole truth) http://www.forbes.com/sites/sportsmoney/...f-houston/. Coog fans run from web site to web site posting how valuable they are and how the UH-USM, Tech-UH games are the norm in Houston and brag about how they beat Baylor and mighty Texas Longhorns 1 time in TV ratings. So I post accurate numbers from the Houston Chronicle and the freaking whining starts again. Well we don't get to play on a major network in prime time and once we get our big new shiny BE TV deal, we will compete with UT and A&M. You mean the same BE schools that UH fans wouldn't show up for or watch in CUSA? Now, they want us to believe that because they have a new conference playing the same old schools from the past will automatically help them with attendance and TV ratings. Give me a break. People aren't stupid.

If the Big 12, SEC, Big 10 or PAC 12 thought the schools residing in Houston were worthy, 1 of those conferences would have already invited them. I think the TV execs and Conference commissioners are seeing the same thing that I see in the Houston Chronicle

But hey lets all sing kumbaya and laugh at UT to make our selves feel better because they only brought 3K fans to a December BBall game in the state of Texas.

I'm just glad a big, bad BCS AQ school fan is obsessed with us. We must be doing something right.

RE: UT-UCLA thread on big east board
And yet jml, none of that has anything to do with the fact Texas couldn't draw flies to that game. I'd say we'd be reading too much into had it drawn 10,000 people because basketball isn't that popular, especially during football season but it couldn't even draw that.

And not once have I argued in favor of UH in regards to this event, though I will say UH certainly couldn't have done any worse than that.

Nice crowd at the Hoff for Texas vs Houston. Coogs up 17-11 on Texas in the CBI tourney.

College Basketball in Texas is at an all time low right now with not one of the 20 something D1 teams in the state making the tournament.

What are the odds Rick Barnes gets canned in the offseason?

Definitely an entertaining game. 4407 showed up but I thought more would show because Texas was in town for the 1st time since 2000.

Congrats to the coogs for beating the whorns.
