Armed Forces Bowl

I don't want to talk about it, other than to say that it really, really sucked. Six interceptions, Case? Seriously?

I'll have my end-of-year review of the 2009 University of Houston football season up in a week or two. But I think it's safe to say that, in winning 10 games this season, the Cougars actually overachieved. The defense was one of the nation's worst this past season, due partially to the fact the the Coogs just don't have the athletes on that side of the ball, but also due to the fact that Skladany simply isn't a very impressive defensive coordinator. The team's problems, however, don't stop with the defense. Sumlin and his staff have a lot of work to do during the course of the offseason on both sides of the ball.

It's a very disappointing way to end what in many respects was a fun season, but there's nothing to do now except look ahead. Go Coogs!
