Transcript Chuck Weatherspoon caused plenty of trouble for the Rebel defense. Weatherspoon carried the ball fewer than ten times yet he gained more than 100 yards. Photo by Tony Bullard. Tim Woods and Verlond Brown relished the sweet taste of victory over the Aggies. The Cougars reached number three in the polls before finishing tenth in the nation, the highest ranking of any Southwest Conference team. Photo by Thomas Nguyen. Texas Tech made a valiant effort to stop the Run and Shoot. In spite of the Red Raider attempts Roman Andersen booted the extra point and the Cougars rolled over Tech in Luhbock.Photo by Tony Bullard Better and Better The University of Houston Cougar football team completed the 1990 season with a 10-1 record including exciting victories over Southwestern conference rivals, Texas A&M, Texas Christian, and cross town foe Rice. Led by quarterback David Klingler, superback Chuck "Spoon" Weatherspoon, and A11- American wide receiver Manny Hazard, the offense continued to rack up record breaking numbers. First year coach John Jenkins was able to successfully replace former coach Jack Pardee, with the record blemished only by a heartbreaking loss to the Texas Longhorns in Austin. The highlight of the year came in the last week of the season as the team traveled to Tokyo to take on the Arizona State Sun Devils in the inaugural Coca-Cola Bowl. David Klingler, a junior in his first year as starting quarterback, not only led the team to victory with an NCAA record for most yards passing in a single game, but was invited to attend the Heisman Trophy presentation in New York as one of the top five candidates for the outstanding college football athlete of 1990. Coming off their three year probation period in 1991, the Cougars would miss offensive leaders, Weatherspoon, Hazard, and Center Greg Jones, as well as defensive standouts, tackle Tray Hooper and team co-captain linebacker Reggie Burnett, all of whom would graduate in the spring. The Cougars had strong expectations for success in '91 under the leadership of David Klingler and linebacker Eric Blount. The Cougars would look foreward to playing perennial powerhouses Miami and Illinois as well as Texas and Texas A&M teams in their new schedule for 91. -Ken Steinhauer » Sjtf M ■9 Freshman Steve Matejka gave this Bear reason to wonder what happened to his blockers.
