It seems odd that just four seasons ago, the Rice Owls finished the season 10-3 and defeated Western Michigan 38-14 in the Texas Bowl in 2008. It was one of their best seasons to date and only their fifth bowl win in school history. But now with head coach David Bailiff entering his sixth season at Rice, he has just one winning season while there. Most don’t expect the Owls to win seven or eight games each year, but Rice fans expect more than what has been taking place down on Main Street.
