Transcript Southwest Conference foes take care of Cougars Baylor showed that the Cougar's defense was a paper tiger. It took everything the Cougars had to keep the score close, but they still managed to lose 29-23 in Waco. The Bears did manage to go the John Hancock Bowl, and they won it, but they didn't seem to be a bowl-bound team when they met the Cougars in mid-October. Neither did the Texas Longhorns. In one of the most intense rivalries in the last ten years, the Longhorns raced to a 28 point lead, but amazingly, the Coogs caught up. The Cougars tied the game, then the Longhorns scored again. The Cougars tried again and several questionable calls cost the Coogs their victory. One call had the closest referee calling a Freddie Gilbert catch a touchdown. It would have tied the game. Instead, the catch slipped out of his hands, and another referee dismissed the touchdown, even after Gilbert's knees had touched the ground. Another call ended a Cougar drive as the officials allowed Texas an interception even though the intended receiver and the Texas player were both out of bounds. Texas took the game 45-35, though at times it was much closer. Homecoming featured the hapless TCU Horned Frogs. There was enough offense for everyone, but a 49-46 win shows that neither team produced the defense needed to finish the other team off. One of the few positives (if you can call it that) is that Donald Douglas had to be sidelined with a foot injury after the Texas game. The "two- headed" quarterback trial was over, and Jimmy Klingler could prepare himself for the #4 in the nation Texas Aggies. First there was a meeting in Dallas. One that was good enough to put a nail in the coffin of John Jenkins. After severely dominating the SMU Mustangs the last three years, the SMU seniors wanted revenge. Since coming off an NCAA death penalty in 1989, the Ponies had been crushed by the Coogs, including the famous 95-21 win in the Dome in '98. The Ponies slapped the Cougars with a 41-16 loss. The blame was placed on a lack of preparation. Hmmm. The Aggies rolled in on a ton of hype, but they hadn't really dominated in any one game, pulling out several close games. The Cougars surprised many by keeping up with the Aggies. Despite Aggie taunting and showboating, the Cougars stayed with them well enough to make it only a 38-30 loss. The game made the Cougars look much more impressive to the national ESPN audience, but the Cougars couldn't keep up the intensity they possessed in that game to impress the Texas Tech crowd. Texas Tech took the Coogs to task in the snow, 44- 35. Jenkins' season finished with a win, a big win that may make him the most unpopular coach in Houston history. The Rice Owls needed one win to go to their first bowl game in 30 years, but the Coogs denied their claim by taking them downtown, 61-34. Both defenses were floudering, but the Run-and-Shoot sent more Cougars to the goal line than the Rice offense could answer. The underdogs of the S WC were defeated again, and UH just looked like dogs. The final note in the Cougar's season came in the spring of '93. John Jenkins resigned as head football coach. It wasn't for running up the score, or having back to back 4 and 7 seasons. Jenkins left after allegations of wrong doings were brought to the press by several former players and an assistant coach. Jenkins resigned in an emotional press conference, where he almost cried. -Michael Edwards ~i Cougar Football 124 Sports Freddie Gilbert takes to the air again. The receiver was again leading the nation in pass reception. Gilbert was a senior majoring in Industrial Economics, whatever that is. Photo by Thomas Nguyen, (center) U nfortunately, we can't figure out who this is, it is either defensive end Linton Weatherspoon (why would he have the ball?), Suporback Lawrence Mouton, or Superback Lamar Smith. It could be someone else, because many duplicate numbers are used for the team, but it gives us a chance to do a little name dropping.
