Is Houston at the point where it’s about the program, not the star player? A year ago, I probably would have sided with the former, believing that the Cougars were built for long-term success despite a changing cast of characters. Now, after a 5-7 season, I wonder whether U.H. can really be considered one of those non-B.C.S. conference programs that will dally with 10 wins on a yearly basis. This after the Cougars started 2-0 with star quarterback Case Keenum, lost him midway through a loss to U.C.L.A. and then dropped six of its last nine, cutting its win total in half off a 10-win 2009 campaign. Will what occurs in 2011 answer the question about whether Houston is about the name on the front of the jersey or those on the back? Not really: Keenum’s back, so the Cougars will be back as well. Let’s revisit the question in 2012, I guess.
