The Rice alumni and fans are disappointed with the program thus far. The offensive unit has failed to produce much, especially in the highly touted run game. They can't cash in. The defensive unit has been up and down, with two games being called fairly successful, the ending loss to Temple being a heart breaker. However, after last weeks whipping by Southern Miss in conference play, the Owl faithful are not happy. They are hoping Rice can bounce back with the remainder of the season and become bowl eligible.
