LOT ON THE LINE.. of course it’s the cross town rival, of
course the bucket is on the line, if you cant get pumped up for this game you shouldn’t
be playing football A WIN BY HOUSTON WOULD MEAN CLINCHING THE
CONFERENCE USA WEST DIVISION… AND PLAYING FOR THE TITLE… BUT AFTER A SURPRISING LOSS
TO RICE LAST SEASON, THE COOGS ARE TAKING NOTHING FOR GRANTED
we all have memories of last year but we both know it’s a new year, new team, new system,
so it’s new game so we are excited to see what happens
as a team we talked about what you can control and that’s the game Saturday, because after
that you don’t who you play, if you are at home, if you are away, you just know if
you win you get to keep playing, so our focus is on winning the game Saturday
hopefully, I began my freshman year with a conference championship and end my senior
season with a conference championship BRANDON BRINKLEY IS ONE OF ONLY 16 SENIORS
ON THE UH SQUAD… AND A HANDFUL THAT START… ALL WILL BE HONORED SATURDAY NIGHT FOR THEIR
TEAM CONTRIBUTION DURING THE LAST REGULAR SEASON GAME…
our seniors are very imp to us, they have been here through coaching changes, through
thick and thin and we definitely want to put our best foot forward to help them guys go
out with a bang it’s just been a long road for all the seniors,
it’s going to be fun, a great atmosphere, ending at the Rob, it’s going to be emotional
for all of us and hopefully our energy is going to transform on the field.
they have done a great job of leadership this year, and really just taking our message and
the teams philosophy, really leading us through some good times and some difficult times and
a bunch of firsts this year FIRST… AS IN THE FIRST WIN BY A C-USSA SCHOOL
AGAINST A TOP 5 TEAM SINCE 2002 WITH THE WIN OVER OKLAHOMA STATE, FIRST AS IN THE NATION’S
NUMBER ONE OFFENSE, AND AT 9-2 THE BEST HOSUTON START SINCE 1990. WHILE THE TEAM HAS EXPERIENCED
A GREAT REGULAR SEASON… THEY HOPE TO FINISH WITH JUST WIN ON SATURDAY, AND ONLY THEN WILL
THEY FOCUS ON THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME… AND BOWL SELECTION.
