Houston gets a C+.

The final must have been weighted.

And referencing the other post that had ULL higher than us, they got a B-.

After 6 games, USF probably would have been A if not A+. Tough second half. :lol:

We were 2-5 and would have been an F after 7 games. They were 7-0. Our schedule and USF's were opposite- they had their easy games early and we had ours late. Ours let us have momentum at the end. Overall I would give us a C+.
Here we come!

An F to the fans here but not to national pundits. We'd have been a solid C. Average, just about what was expected. Our losses to SMU and UAB were not universally surprising to pundits (maybe slightly so), but our stunning win over Memphis would swing that C-/D+ back to a solid C.

We here knew we were underachieving and would have had us in the D to F range. Outsiders didn't think so.
