Transcript 1981 UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON FOOTBALL SPRING PROSPECTUS Determined to pump more life into his offense, University of Houston Head Coach Bill Yeoman promised his 1981 squad anything but a spring picnic during six weeks of workouts beginning March 10. Though, the Cougars finished tied for second in Southwest Conference play last season and thumped Navy 35-0 in the Garden State Bowl, Yeoman was unhappy with the inconsistency on offense and plans to work his troops hard this spring unlike a year ago. "We will do a lot of scrimmaging and the offensive line and receivers will get a ton of work," Yeoman said. "We just need to get the entire offense where it was a few seasons ago and putting the ball in the air more next season is something you can count on." Houston finished fourth in total offense (3,784 yards), third in rushing offense (220.6 per game) and at the bottom of the ladder in passing offense in the SWC. Yeoman had to use three different quarterbacks, because of injuries, which attributed to a more conservative attack. He is set on opening things up more in order to get the ball to his talent at the skill positions. Throwing for only six touchdowns in SWC play, while averaging 123 yards per game in the air left the Coogs depending on their grind-em-out running attack and Yeoman is planning to balance his firepower this season. The Cougars return 26 lettermen, 11 on offense and 15 on defense. Forty-four players who were either redshirted or played sparingly will also contribute in the fall, so the 1981 Cougars do have considerable experience. Hosea Taylor, Leonard Mitchell and Steve Bradham were the anchors on defense, while Terry Elston, Terald Clark, Jack Faniel, Eric Herring and Randy Swisher were the top players lost on offense. While there are many questions to be answered about the offense, at least Yeoman returns three quarterbacks who saw action last season. (MORE/OVER)
