Transcript Dick Post, 1966 varsity captain, sprints for daylight leaving Tulsa defensive tackle Karl Henke behind. Post was the team's leading ground gainer in each of his three seasons as a varsity player. Cougar Varsity Strides Into A Season Of Answers The University of Houston entered its 21st year of intercollegiate football competition with many questions to answer. How would the team react to the stiff three-year probation handed the Cougars by the NCAA at the end of the 1965 season? Would the new synthetic grass, Astroturf, affect their play? The team went 3-0-1 in the last four games of 1965. Could the Big Red carry this momentum over into 1966? Everything pointed to a good year in 1966. The leadership and poise of halfback-fullback Dick Post, perhaps the team's steadiest offensive performer, had been recognized by his teammates when they elected him captain. Post was the first football captain who was not a Texas resident. An older and wiser Bo Burris held the quarterback job and had a chance to break almost every passing record in the UK book. Warren McVea, the heralded running back, apparently had found a home at flanker. The offense had tremendous speed and depth and the experience of playing a whole season together. The defense was deep and experienced at some spots and manned by untried sophomores at others. The defensive line, led by seniors Carl Cunningham, Jim Dyar and Paul Otis, would hold up but a fine passer might make life very interesting for the younger linebackers and defensive 'backs. The Cougars began their season on the road. UH fans could only wait and listen for the answers to their questions. 144
