And we will have the same cast of characters making excuses for this coaching staff.

There is not a chance they’re better next season.

Of course not. Austin and Dykes are gone and they are our entire big play capability. None of the receivers left behind are any good and none of our RB's are any good either.

Either Gunnell or Henigan will leave, and I have a bad feeling it will be Henigan going to a Texas school.

The offense will be dreadful next year, imo. And of course the coaching will continue to be dreadful

We are going backwards in a big way.

Hit the head, part of the reason why our offense is struggling is that we lost all the playmakers from 2018-2019 seasons. And all the players that are playing now aren't anywhere close to the playmaking ability as the playmakers from the 18-19 seasons. That does include Dykes and Austin.

The program is obviously in a downward spiral and something needs to be done ASAP. Anyone who says otherwise doesn’t understand football, the college football landscape and is probably a liberal, millennial snowflake.

I may not understand football, college football landscape, and I was born in 1988 so I am a millennial by default..

But a coach who was 8-3 in a pandemic year and then comes into this season with injuries, and more appear, and others hurt at various times, and is 5-6….probably isn’t considered a “downward spiral” in any sense except for irrational cynics.

Houston has had a 4-8, 3-5 years prior to this jump back up. Wins and Losses or down seasons are not something that will suddenly shutter the doors.

Rough seasons happen to all programs at all points of times. If there’s not massive overhauls done during the off season…then I think there is even more concern with judgment.

If I am wrong with my patience, then I am.

RE: Probably Time to Consider a New Head FB Coach
And I place blame on the AD for this because it was obviously a lazy, emotional hire. Dude just isn’t qualified. Reminds me a lot of the Pastner situation. If the AD is not on the phone lining up interviews with quality candidates right now then maybe his job should be shopped too. We do have a new President who was the #2 at Auburn so I have to imagine he has a low tolerance for a losing football program.

Nah man, I get it. All the indicators were there though. I will not rehash it. I'm sorry I'm not eating crow

Like I've said, we'll bleed to death some more and they will fire him. I'm just not good at keeping my mouth shut while it happens.

You’re absolutely right. Your flimsy response implies that you don’t understand anything about football, economics or accountability. All that amounted to was a list of unsubstantiated excuses and BS. Failure, excuses and sensitivity don’t pay the freaking bills so at some point you have to pull your head out of your arse and hold people accountable. That’s what’s wrong with your generation and the sooner you figure that out, the sooner you will rise to the top of your class. Don’t be a f-ing snowflake! While it may be unique, the lifestyle has proven to be unsustainable. I pray that one day you’ll learn that there are no substitutes for love, hard work and accountability.

While it may be unique, the lifestyle has proven to be unsustainable. I pray that one day you’ll learn that there are no substitutes for love, hard work and accountability.

Being accountable and rational is the thing here. You’re demanding accountability to the extent of termination for one rough season despite ignoring the fairly decent season he had before under tough conditions and seasoned players. Demanding accountability due to knee-jerk cynicism is just stupid and, frankly, is what has also ruined many programs. You can hold someone accountable and demand they make changes, and if they don’t do that at some point, then it is time to let them go. This not that time. This season is, rationally, is not the time.

So you can act infantile if you want since it soothes your ego (as apparently it does Shere Khan’s), but it doesn’t pinch hit for your lack of reasoning. If you fundamentally believe one rough season warrants an irrational response despite a multitude of evidence throughout history that shows the opposite, then I can’t change your perspective on that. I adamantly would have to believe you’re a fool.

One can demand accountability and be patient. These things are not as opposing ends. It’s about being objective and not emotional. Which makes it to the end point - if your response to a rough reason is to act emotional and rant, then you’re probably the snowflake you’re trying to warn us about.

It is absolutely beyond the bounds of all rational thought and contrary to the laws of the natural universe to be lectured about maturity by someone that quotes ayn rand.

But a coach who was 8-3 in a pandemic year and then comes into this season with injuries, and more appear, and others hurt at various times, and is 5-6….probably isn’t considered a “downward spiral” in any sense except for irrational cynics.

Houston has had a 4-8, 3-5 years prior to this jump back up. Wins and Losses or down seasons are not something that will suddenly shutter the doors.

Rough seasons happen to all programs at all points of times. If there’s not massive overhauls done during the off season…then I think there is even more concern with judgment.

If I am wrong with my patience, then I am.


You’re absolutely right. Your flimsy response implies that you don’t understand anything about football, economics or accountability. All that amounted to was a list of unsubstantiated excuse and BS. Failure, excuses and sensitivity don’t pay the freaking bills so at some point you have to pull your head out of your arse and hold people accountable. That’s what’s wrong with your generation and the sooner you figure that out, the sooner you will rise to the top of your class. Don’t be a f-ing snowflake! While it may be unique, the lifestyle has proven to be unsustainable. I pray that one day you’ll learn that there are no substitutes for love, hard work and accountability.

Being accountable and rational is the thing here. You’re demanding accountability to the extent of termination for one rough season despite ignoring the fairly decent season he had before under tough conditions and seasoned players. Demanding accountability due to knee-jerk cynicism is just stupid and, frankly, is what has also ruined many programs. You can hold someone accountable and demand they make changes, and if they don’t do that at some point, then it is time to let them go. This not that time. This season is, rationally, is not the time.

So you can act infantile if you want since it soothes your ego (as apparently it does Shere Khan’s), but it doesn’t pinch hit for your lack of reasoning. If you fundamentally believe one rough season warrants an irrational response despite a multitude of evidence throughout history that shows the opposite, then I can’t change your perspective on that. I adamantly would have to believe you’re a fool.

One can demand accountability and be patient. These things are not as opposing ends. It’s about being objective and not emotional. Which makes it to the end point - if your response to a rough reason is to act emotional and rant, then you’re probably the snowflake you’re trying to warn us about.

It is absolutely beyond the bounds of all rational thought and contrary to the laws of the natural universe to be lectured about maturity by someone that quotes ayn rand.

Sir, you go to far

It’s interesting for someone who is apparently a “conservative” to be anti-Ayn Rand. But once again, small brains try to evade the argument by attacking something else via ad hominem. Considering Rand’s philosophy and political views did play a role in many Republican and Libertarian opinions, your aversion to her wreaks more of a Liberal mindset.

Hence the reason for the quote.

At any rate, being petulant isn’t becoming of those who somehow try to act as my “betters” if the level of your mindset is a stunted bro who thinks wit covers up for your evading of actual thought.

Seriously. People just now seeing this?

Seriously, after all the shite I caught for pointing it out early.

Like I said, don’t be a snowflake. There’s no future in it.
Silverfield’s performance speaks for itself. We are in a death spiral.

And you obviously need to turn off CNN and all that bs.

It's a full moon. People are waxing philosophical and talking out loud to themselves.

RE: Probably Time to Consider a New Head FB Coach
I was against the Silverfield hiring. I am only saying that so it shows the weight in what I say next. Firing Silverfield this season is not a good decision, imo. Unless we have some great coach already lined up, it would be a mistake. This season he has to replace some of the coordinators though. That is a must. If we are not much improved next season, it is reasonable in the sports community to fire him.
