Whose "you jealous jims"? Must be a Houston term. In Tulsa we just call them haters.

I'm pretty sure no one on the forum thinks UH doesn't deserve to be in the top ten.

No, no you don't deserve to be in the top 10, who have Tulsa beat, who have Houston beat?? One of the worst schedules in the country. Top 25 maybe, but no way top ten.

When you schedule is

UCLA
North Texas
LA Tech
Georgia State
Utep
ECU
Marshall
Rice
UAB
Tulane
SMU
Tulsa

Of those teams listed above, only four team are above 500, you beat UCLA by four points @ home and needed a 28 point second half comeback against LA Tech. People have gone on about Boise States schedule in the past, but at least they've played at least one ranked team.

Rant over, I've personally got nothing against Houston, but I don't believe they should be in the top 10 based on their schedule. If they get to a BCS game, I'll be rooting for them, as I root for all mid majors in major BCS games.

no and No and NO! Winning a cupcake schedule should not even deserve a top 10 ranking. Then on top of that, Houston barely won a few games. No! I hate the SEC, but to be honest its not fair to conferences like the SEC with intense game by game schedules. If LSU played Houston it would be embarrassly bad. Matter of fact, Ole Miss would pound Houston. Houston is BARELY a top 25 team.

Houston has not only been beating teams. They have been tearing them up. Their win percentage is over 50 freaking points.

and Tulsa's loses have all been to teams ranked in the top ten at the time of play so don't act like Tulsa's has not played tough teams.
