Where had the defense gone? Will Coach John Jenkins be fired at I Ik? end of this year? The generally happy Jenkins took most of it in stride. Jenkins' decision between quarterbacks Jimmy Klingler and Donald Douglas was to use both of them. A rivalry to determine who won Id start each week seemed to pique reporter's interest and the quarterback's ire. The Golden Hurricanes of Tulsa were the first opponent for the Cougars, and the night game proved to be more than what the Cougars expected. Douglas got the nod to start, but was quickly replaced by Klingler in Jenkins' "two headed quarterback" system. The Cougars had to play catch up for the entire game. A rally in the fourth quarter tied the game as Klingler threw to I laniel Adams for a touchdown and a two-point < onversionrun in by Klingler.

The Coogs were prepared and took the Illinois team down in the Dome. "It was great revenge," said TiAndre Sanders, theCou- gar Superback. Douglas concurred, 'The last time they played us they tried to embarrass us. They did embarrass us." Kevin LaBay felt a little like David vs. Goliath as he and the Cougar Defense went against linemen that averaged 298 pounds. "It's been awhile since the defense? had a chance to win a game?. We; declared ourselves compatible against any team in any conference today," said LaBay. The; Mael De)g defense was in fullgearobtainingse\ en sacks and holding Illinois' offense back, allowing a 31-13 cut down of the Big Ten opponent. Unfortunately, conference ties can be thicker than blood. The Cougars traveled to Ann Arbor, Michigan to battle the Big Ten Michigan Wolverines. Well, battle might not be the word. Michigan handed the Cougars the worst loss in team 122 Sports history, and it started on the first play. The kickoff was returned U\) yards for a touch down and it didn't get an\ hel tor. Missed Held goals, missed tackles, "We just broke down." said Douglas. "There wasn't even a I in n around play," Ke\ in Meier, senior center, said.
