It’s Wednesday. This is what I think:
• If you’re going to complain about the lack of coverage of the good things about your university, why then waste 30 minutes of commercial-free television time talking so much about the “least significant thing that has happened” in the past four years? It should be no surprise that the ride was bumpy considering the number of people thrown under the bus.
• Perceived success elsewhere doesn’t equate to success here.
• Former UH punter Alex Dunnachie is making the right career choice in moving to the mainland to train. He has no tryouts in place. But an opportunity can open at any time, and he is a very good punter. Dunnachie departs today.
• It’s back to school for former UH quarterback Cayman Shutter — this time to the University of Regina. Shutter, who recently earned a bachelor’s degree from UH, will be able to work on the Canadian football game for a season. Shutter, a Canadian citizen, was not selected in the recent CFL draft. He should improve his stock playing for Regina this year.
• Brian Urlacher’s recently completed NFL career is worthy of Hall of Fame consideration. It also furthers the argument that the WAC had some pretty good players. There are seven former WAC players in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Ladainian Tomlinson should make it eight.
