For some reason in a state where Texas A&M, Texas Tech whom Houston visits this season, Baylor, and the University of Texas reside expectations are at a peak for Houston Cougars alumni, fans, and boosters. 7-5 at the Institute of higher learning Texas largest city should be good enough but it isn’t, and second-year head coach Major Applewhite is beginning to feel feeling pressure. A November loss at Tulane, as well as an Aloha Bowl loss to Fresno State, is not a right way to end a season.
Productive players must be replaced on both sides of the football, but they’ve got a consensus All American on defense. The 2018 schedule has usual suspects from the American Athletic Conference West division. However, South Florida and Temple from the East will visit TDECU Stadium in Houston as well as PAC-Twelve South opponent Arizona in an out of conference revenge game for the visitors and the return of former Cougars head coach Kevin Sumlin.
The first year offensive coordinator Kendal Briles has baggage after having the same title at Baylor during a tumultuous time in Waco under the leadership of his Father Art. Quarterback D’Eriq King 1,260 passing yard has a full season under his belt which was average at best. University of Tennessee graduate Quinten Dormady will battle for playing time under center in fall camp. Briles understand he has some holes to fill with the departure of running back Duke Catalon and wide receivers Steven Dunbar and Linell Bonner. Baylor transfer Terrance Williams should be more than capable of producing yards on the ground attack. Center Will Noble is as good as it gets on an inexperienced offensive line.
Briles will take plenty of chances and won’t hesitate to rotate quarterbacks, and he will go no huddle with an uptempo the entire football game. Houston will be one of the best-conditioned team in College Football.
Houston held a lot of high powered offenses in check last season and was especially good against the pass. All American defensive tackle Ed Oliver will be a top-five pick in the 2019 NFL draft barring a severe injury, the homegrown product from Westfield high school is the best in College Football. TCU transfer Isaiah Chambers will help free up Oliver when he’s double-teamed at the point of attack. There is work to be done with inexperience at linebacker four players are competing for playing time. As usual, Houston has plenty of talent at in the secondary, and the addition of Notre Dame graduate transfer Nick Watkins and Deontay Anderson from Ole Miss will add depth.
Mark D’Onofrio enters his second season as coordinator of Houston and will have his unit ready to compete weekly; he’s an excellent mindset with an excellent eye for talent. Bovada.Lv, list Houston at +250 to win the AAC Football West Division Title.
