Transcript Team falls short AGAINST i t was a summer of hype. The football team was the most touted, most celebrated, most written about team all summer long, and David Klingler was at the head of the publicity. What with the exciting run and shoot, being off probation, (finally), and a red hot quarterback with eyes on the Heisman Trophy, it seemed nothing would stop the fighting Cougars. Nothing but Miami, Illinois, Texas A&M...well you get the picture. Perhaps it was the Sports Illustrated jinx, with the smiling mug of Klingler on the cover, and in-depth articles on him and touted head coach John Jenkins, that took the fizz out of 'the nation's most explosive offense'. The Coog's were predicted to end anywhere between second in the Southwest Conference (behind Texas? HA!), to number nine in the nation. Then there was the surprising prediction by Sport Magazine that the team would actually end up with the national championship under its belt and a second Heisman in its trophy case. The team was ready to live up to expectations with a 73-3 drubbing of Louisiana Tech that showed the 'run it up' and shoot was ready to roll. Then the Hurricane came in. Miami players talked tough, and unfortunately they could back it up too, in a game that killed all talk of a Cougar national ranking and left the team with many questions. Miami took out even the idea of a the preseason hype close game in the first few minutes, stopping the run and shoot and running over the defense for a 40-10 score. This must be how Louisiana Tech felt. The offense of tomorrow had to face it's greatest test against the strong Miami Defense, but no one expected the offensive show the 'canes would show the nation on ESPN. The good news, we had scored a touchdown, late in the fourth quarter, to keeping alive a record of games since 1987 (Jack Pardee's first year as head coach) with at least one TD, but the Coog's were merely a speed bump as Miami ran straight to a national championship. The Fightin' Illini were next, and a chance to redeem themselves with a win on national television, but alas, it was not to be as the offensive line again couldn't quite put it together, and despite a touchdown and field goal, the Illinois offense took the Coogs to town 51-10. The Cougars couldn't contain the pass rush, and couldn't decide on a superback, so the running game wasn't there, and everyone was after David Klingler. Even the defense was having problems missing there coverage assignments. Coach Jenkins even tried running plays out of the shotgun, but still the team couldn't get the ball inside the 20. At least the next game, starting Southwest Conference games against Baylor, would be at home-where the Coog's held a 15 game winning streak.
