    This is messed up!!! You can't have teams just openly throwing seasons.

    The AAC should at least step in with some consequences for this nonsense.

    It affects the integrity of their conference and the W-L records of every one of their opponents.

    JMO but they should make them ineligible for their Conference Title game for as long as Dana is there.

    I just hope this fails in a big way for Houston. I hope it goes horribly horribly wrong. It would be really unfortunate for this line of thinking to become common.

    Why did they ever break the bank for this moron anyway? He's never been a great coach. He's certainly not worth 4 million a year or whatever it is they are paying him.

    I wonder if Tilman Fertitta is happy about this? Is his $1,600+ for a hamburger at his Post Oak hotel in Houston funding the coach's salary. (Michael Berry recently had a post regarding that hamburger. Michael said you could buy 250+ hamburgers at Whataburger for that price.) Have YOU visited a Tilman restaurant lately? They are all over the country. He owns the Rockets, etc. Is Tilman the one who got D. H. to come to UH? Is he happy with D. H.? I just do not know.

    I don't think Dana is a great HC. Other than that I don't know except I don't care much for Houston.
    I do not believe in atheists, therefore they do not exist.

    All of this is news to me, but it explains a lot of things.

    I am so glad I left StinkTown in '75....................
    As I say, we tried to remove the tusks. But they were embedded so firmly we couldn't budge them. Of course, in Alabama the Tuscaloosa, but that is entirely ir-elephant to what I was talking about.

    According to friends that have been around the Houston program since the Kevin Sumlin days, Hogo has always been a “hand grenade with a really bad haircut” looking for a place to explode. Lots of things happened with him at Houston as the OC that didn’t come to light.

    I think this situation highlights why Saban is Saban and Dana is Dana. Saban on any day, week after week, regardless of schedule always is best guys ready to play play. Dana on the other hand starts over strategizing this stuff. Football is a game of commitment,,, Saban gets it, Dana does not, Houston is done for a long time.

    Dana Holgerson is a bottom dweller at best.
    His actions ought to be enough show cause to send his ass packing.
    He is morally bankrupt.
    Doesn't say much for Huston's AD or President.
    If they sanctioned his actions, they should be shown the door also.

    Let me start off by saying that I agree 100% that this is bs. But, let's play devil's advocate...What if it works? What if Anoma, King, the rb, etc..come back and they make a NY6 bowl???Does this become a thing??? Is he an evil genius, or an....???
