Houston coach Kelvin Sampson on next game against unbeaten AAC leader Cincinnati: "They're not a hard team to prepare for. They're just a monster to play."

He seems like he really respects our program.

Some people are viewing this as disrespect. I really don't see it that way. Especially based on what he's said about us before.

Yeah, I think he has plenty if respect for us. Personally, I don't like listening to him talk in general, just very very dry.

I love that players like Rob Gray are already saying they are ready for the rematch game with us etc etc. I am already getting hyped for this game and our guys to bring it.

This game worries me. Houston knows they can get out and score on us. They won't be intimidated at all. Starting slow is absolutely got an option here.

The one plus is Houston is not playing in their own arena since it's being renovated. They will do everything they can to fill the seats but I don't think their attendance has been great this season. I think we are the better team but being on the road worries me. Definitely, need to shoot the 3 ball better while on the road.

Think we get the W but it's a close one. 64-58 Cats.

Their fan support is a joke. I think the UH players have learned how to play without the juice of their fans. This game is a 6 pm game for Houston time on a weekday. I'm not worried at all about their crowd. Time to shut these guys up.

I agree. I seen people on twitter getting upset with this quote. Did not understand it. Also, coaches aren't going to disrespect any other team, especially 4 days before they play them.

Yes, too much of an NBA town

I love how Sampson respects Cincy and Cronin,
