"Next year" was an easy phrase for
UH fans following the '65 football season. The Coogs' season record of four
wins, five losses and a tie was not impressive as such, but against Tennessee,
Ole Miss and Kentucky the Big Red had'
played impressive football.
With a wealth of talent ' coming up
from the freshman squad and proven
regulars returning in many positions, the
coming year seemed to promise more nationally televised games, and perhaps
even a bowl game.
But at the season's end UH was
placed on probation for recruiting
violations by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, which meant no TV or
bowl games for three years for Cougar
One UH gridder gave his views on the
NCAA action, saying that we can still
be ranked number one in the national
polls without being on television or in
a bowl game.
Head Coach Bill Yeoman turns pensively toward the playing field during one of his
greatest coaching victories at UH, the 17-3 defeat of Ole Miss.
