Houston not getting the respect they deserve?

Kevin Sumlin is coachin'em up in Houston. This season, Sumlin's got his guys 6-0 and in the Top 25.
The problem is they are #25.
This season, the Cougars have beaten UCLA, North Texas, Louisiana Tech, Georgia State, UTEP and East Carolina. UCLA, LA Tech and UTEP games were all close.
The offense is rolling (as it usually has with Case Keenum at the helm). The Cougars are #1 in the nation in passing and total offense and #5 in scoring offense.
This is Sumlin's 4th season as head coach at Houston.
In 2008, they went 8-5 and were 2nd in the nation in passing, total offense and 10th in scoring.
In 2009, they went 10-4 and were 1st in the nation in passing, total offense and scoring.
In 2010, Keenum got hurt and the Cougars finished 5-7; yet still were 5th in the nation in passing, 11th in total offense and 13th in scoring.
If the Cougars win out this season (they still have Marshall, Rice, at UAB, at Tulane, SMU and at Tulsa), Sumlin will be receiving a whole lot of attention and the Cougars should move well up in the rankings.
On another note, the Cougars recently released this website which gives you an inside look into Cougar Football. 360 degree interactive video. We hear a couple of programs are working on these; but this one is the first we've seen.
