I never understood that - and it was never explained,
My recollection of the whole thing is about Coach Eric Bienimy trying to turn Houston into Eric Bienimi - a punishing low to the ground runner, and then denigrated him for not becoming that. I always thought we screwed up with Houston - we needed to find a way to get him the ball outside of the tackles. Of course, Houston did not make it in Ft. Collins either. But I still think CU messed up with Houston. I also thought Houston should have had to sit the year.
