Transcript Jot one of Jimmy Klingler's best moments. Klingler seemed to get sacked about as many times as his brother David did last year. The Cougars still went on the surprise the Fightin' Illini, 31-13. Photo by Thomas Nguyen (center) Cirunch time. Seniors Steve Clarke and Kevin LaBay put Illinois quarterback Jason Verduzco in his place. With the help of Allen Aldridge and Stephen Dixon, the four combined for seven sacks.

Photo by Thomas Nguyen (lower center) Jimmy Klingler started more than half of the year's games, and won the number one spot by default after Donald Douglas was injured. He joins the few Cougar Quarterbacks who have thrown more than 25 touchdown passes in a season. Photo by Thomas Nguyen (lower right) "V \ Thile it sounds more \l \ /like the Rosie Grier V Vmoviefromthel970's, the Two Headed Quarterback was Coach John Jenkins' answer to the question; Who would replace David Klingler? Donald Douglas and Jimmy Klingler were vying for the job, trying to prove they were the best in summer practices. Chandler Evans was injured and Kyle Allen was a third candidate. Coach Jenkins watched and waited. He didn't release his decision to the public until a week before the season started. Jenkins would use both counts, different styles." In the press, it seemed the relationship between the two quarterbacks was becoming strained. It seemed that everyone wanted to find out who was the better QB. "It doesn't do any good to talk each other down," said Klingler. "It's not going to change anything." If the offensive line didn't protect Jimmy and Donald like they hadn't protected David last year, then nothing would change. "If the Cougars don't win," said Douglas. 'The critics will become more vocal, wondering why Jenkins didn't choose one quar- you're going to stay in there," Klingler said. Douglas did go on to start the Michigan game, as well as the Southwest Louisiana and the Baylor game. Some wins, some losses, but in each game Klingler appeared for at least half the game. The matter was decided for good after Douglas couldn't continue to play in the Texas game, suffering from fallen arches. One appearance in the SMU game finished his season as he couldn't play for the entire drive without pain. He sat out the rest of the season as Klingler took the reigns. ouston-styleShootout DouglasandKHnglerformf't wo-headed" Quarterback Jimmy Klingler and Donald Douglas. He would choose which one would start the game from who had the hot hand in practice, then switch out the men during the game. The idea, we think, was to confuse opposing defenses and having to develop two different strategies. Douglas was mobile, being able to scramble and run the ball. Klingler, much like his brother, was able to hurl long, accurate passes. Junior Douglas had experience at the University of Florida and filling in for David the last two years, but Jimmy had also played in games last year. "It's like having Nolan Ryan and Roger Clements on the same team," said Jenkins. 'They're both going to pitch." Receiver Freddie Gilbert didn't feel the system would work. "I can see problems down the road. Offenses are based on rhythm. Quarterbacks have different snap terback." The first test came against Tulsa. Douglas was chosen to start, unfortunately it wasn't his best showing, and after three drives, Klingler had replaced him. "I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hurt," said Douglas. "I lost a sense of security. They say Jimmy got hot. I didn't get a second chance. I definitely feel it was unfair." Douglas felt he accomplished more in summer practice, and that he should have been the starting QB, but the two quarterback system left him watching his back, always trying to stay ahead of Klingler. "It got kind of frustrating at the end," said sophomore Klingler. "Going into game week everyone's asking; Who's going to start? Who's going to play? And you don't know." "During the game there's a little more pressure. You know that if you do well, 126WWWSports Klingler had good showings at Texas and the Homecoming TCU game, but the offensive line crumbled before him in other games, such as the surprising loss to SMU. "You can't put it on one thing," said Klingler about the loss. "We stunk all day." Klingler stacked up the stats as usual, 34 out of 53 passes were successful for 385 yards, but the end zone seemed out of reach. It all turned around for the Rice game, where the offensive line stepped up it's play. Klingler threw seven touchdown passes and ran up 613 passing yards. Stats worthy of Andre Ware, or David Klingler. The final note came after the season, Jenkins announced that Douglas would play safety next year, throwing out the two quarterbacks monster, but new head coach Kim Helton may have different ideas for the two Cougar cannons. -Michael Edwards Football mmi27
