All aboard the H-Town Takeover!

via Houston Athletics

The Cougars had a comeback for the ages against the Memphis Tigers. Down by twenty points in the forth quarter, the Cardiac Coogs kept pushing and pulled out a miraculous comeback. The atmosphere inside of TDECU was electric and the game lived up to the pre-game hype.

After starting quarterback Greg Ward, Jr. went down with an injury, Tom Herman worked his magic again on another third string quarterback. Similar to how Herman and Cardale Jones guided the Ohio State Buckeyes to last season’s national championship, Herman turned to former walk-on quarterback, third stringer Kyle Postma who kept the Coogs’ undefeated season alive.

The H-Town Takeover rolls into Storrs, Connecticut to take on the UConn Huskies this coming Saturday. The final game of the regular season for the Coogs will be against the Navy Midshipman and, regardless of the outcome of the UConn game, will be the de facto American Conference western division championship game.

Houston has also moved up to #13 in the AP poll and #14 in the coaches poll.

One thought on “All aboard the H-Town Takeover!

  1. I am still jumping for joy in Virginia, but…

    I must say I was worried about Greg’s poor performance before he went down. He was overthrowing open receivers even without pressure, and that goes back to the Cincinnati game.

    Does anyone else notice that Ward’s play has declined since we’ve heard Coach Herman talk about keeping him in the pocket?

    I admire coach for insisting the press conference that Ward remains the starter if healthy, but the fact is that Postma was simply sensational. Everything changed offensively when he entered the game. Kyle has he height to stay in the pocket, but he’s also a serious running threat, and such a poised, confident player.

    If Ward returns and is inefficient, I hope that coach won’t hesitate to go with Postma. He’s going to become transfer bait if he remains on the sideline the rest of the season.
