Coming Soon: The Roost’s 2022 Conference USA Season Preview will be released on Wednesday, June 29th.
In years past, The Roost has offered two Preseason Preview digital magazines: one geared directly toward Rice football and another tailored to fans of all Conference USA teams. Starting this year, The Roost will be releasing one Conference USA Football Season Preview in lieu of the split offering.
The Preview will go on sale Wednesday, June 29th.
For Conference USA fans, nothing about your experience will change. You’ll still be able to purchase the preview from the site directly and it will have a similar look and feel to recent editions, with a few nuggets tucked in this year on the topic of conference realignment and the incoming members of the conference.
For Rice fans, this decision was made to streamline your access to Rice football content — and we’re not cutting anything. All position previews, individual superlatives and features that had been previously included in the Season Preview will be shared directly on Patreon over the next several weeks.
There’s now no need to purchase an additional Rice-specific preview. Simply pick up a copy of the conference preview (it’s cheaper than the Rice preview has been in the past!) and get everything else included in your Patreon subscription to The Roost.
Not a patron yet? Take advantage of this perk:
In addition to the season preview content you’ve come to expect, patrons all receive access to fall camp reports, practice notebooks, Q&As, recruiting analysis and more.

As part of our 2022 Rice Football Preseason Preview series, next we’ll examine the offensive line position and discuss the Owls’ plans for that group.

All eyes are on the newest Rice football wide receiver Luke McCaffrey, the focal point of our March 2022 Patreon Q&A. On the opening day of spring practice, Rice football head coach Mike Bloomgren almost nonchalantly mentioned Luke McCaffrey had been the one who suggested he move from quarterback to wide receiver. The comments added […]
