Houston QB John O’Korn Transfers to Michigan

Houston Cougars QB John O’Korn announced on Thursday that he will transfer to Michigan. O’Korn will have to redshirt next year, and he was 31st ranked pro-style QB in the 2013 class according to 24/7. I wouldn’t expect O’Korn to start a game at Michigan, but it’s pretty clear that Jim Harbaugh wants his quarterbacks […] The post Houston QB John O’Korn Transfers to Michigan...

Tom Herman, Houston Signs 21 New Cougars

National Signing Day. It’s the one day every year grown-ups get incredibly excited over the futures of a bunch of high school students most people have never heard of … and may never hear about again. Despite being a huge college football fan and pseudo-journalist, I’ve never understood the hype over an 18-year old holding a news conference and putting on a hat to declare where...

Bearcats Break Houston with Second Half Run

Another second half, another hot shooting performance from the Cincinnati Bearcats. Following their 55 point outing against Temple in the second half, UC hung 43 on the Houston Cougars. UC finished the two game home stand outscoring Temple and Houston 98-51. The first half was a very sloppy half where Cincinnati didn’t bring much intensity or urgency. It was like they knew they...

Cincinnati Bearcats vs Houston Cougars Preview

The start of the sludge of AAC play begins tonight as the Bearcats play host the awful Houston Cougars. We’ve been incredibly lucky so far that nearly every Bearcat AAC game has been somewhat interesting, besides ECU, on paper. Temple was not really interesting in actual game drama. This week is essentially the complete opposite of what we’ve seen so far. Two of the worst teams...

Offseason To-Do List: Houston Cougars

There may not be a college football coaching change in America with as much buzz as the Tom Herman hire at Houston. All week leading up to the CFP National Championship game you heard the “experts” gush over Herman and talking about the instant impact he could have. Then on game day, if you were playing a drinking game (not that I condone such a thing) and had to drink every...

Ohio State Offensive Coordinator Tom Herman Throws on His Houston Cougars Hat During Celebration

More often than not when a coach gets hired away he leaves his current school and heads directly for the new one. In a way it is understandable since you have to get to know your new team and get on the recruiting trail ASAP. At the same time it sucks because you leave the season unfinished with your old team (if you are bowl bound).So it was pretty cool that Tom Herman stuck around...

Houston Cougars’ 2014 Season Report Card

You could use the cliche “it was a roller coaster season” to describe 2014 for the Houston Cougars. But that would be one unbelievable roller coaster with a lot of twists and turns, sudden and unexpected ups and downs, and a finish so wild you would throw up the funnel cake you just ate before getting on the ride. There are a lot of words you could use to label the Cougars...
