    I remember putting on a tie and attending Cougar games at the Astrodome with my date in the early 70’s as a UH student and “frat boy”, when it was still somewhat of a novelty to play football on a rug. Coogs were nationally prominent as an independent and dominated the early years of the SWC. We drew 30,000 -45,000 for Texas or TAMU, but even then when those schools would still play us we didnt need the full 60,000 seats. Certainly worth considering, however- especially if city and state ponied up too.

    If someone can show me how remodeling that place is cheaper than a new stadium, I would be less skeptical. But basketball?? That is a little more far fetched.

    The only way the general public will ever support UH sports is for the games to be played in a safe environment. People are not going to drive into that part of town to watch a night or even day game. Someone needs to tell it like it is.
