HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Every week Houston Chronicle columnist Brian T. Smith teams up with ABC13's Jonathan Bruce to answer the big questions in Houston sports. This is what we have on deck this week.
The Astros clinch their fifth division title in six seasons, with six straight playoff births. They've won more games than any American League team since 2017. What defines their winning ways? In the video above, Brian and Jonathan discuss how it's magnified after the chaos and upheaval the team has experienced.
The Texans are winless to start the 2022 season, despite a stellar defense that has given them a chance to win both games. What's wrong with the offense? Who's to blame? Brian said it goes a lot deeper than quarterback Davis Mills and coach Lovie Smith, as he writes here.
Following a 12-win season and a big contract extension for coach Dana Holgorsen, the Houston Cougars are 1-2 in a year that was full of big expectations. Houston fell at home to Kansas 48-30 on Saturday. Has the shine worn off of Holgorsen as the program prepares to move to the Big 12? Brian questions if there was much shine to begin with.
