Transcript laying football at the University of Houston has matured me as a human being, and has also given me a new perspective on life that I should be able to utilize throughout the rest of my college football career. I have also learned to accept losses and times of sorrow, always knowing that there will be better days to come. When you' re at the bottom, there's only one way to go- up! 282 6[j) Alfred Young, Junior Cornerback Chemical Engineering Sports Oh, What a Year the Coogs Had Helton's record, an unimpressive 1-9-1 To paraphrase Dickens, Cougar Football, it was the worst of times- 0. K, so it wasn't that bad, but it couldn't get much worse. New Head Coach Kim Helton had troubles all the way, trying to get the Cougars off the ground and on to victory. Just some of the obstacles Helton faced were a late start (he was hired after recruiting season), a team tooled to an offense he didn't like (the run-and- shoot), and a lack of knowledge about his player's abilities (former coach John Jenkins took all the reports and video tapes of the team when he left). Add to this several key injuries, and you're not going to come out on top. The season started with a drubbing loss against Pac-10 powerhouse USC, 49-7, only to be followed by a home loss to the Tulsa Golden Hurricanes, 38- 24. Strangely enough, the Cougars did not fold up against Michigan. The team fought hard, but still lost 42-21. The offensive line found several holes in the Michigan line, but the defense couldn't stop the Wolverine's attack. The brightest note came at the beginning of the Southwest Conference season. The Cougars defense managed shut down the Baylor Bears 24-3, giving coach Helton his first victory. "I think that Baylor was the number two offensive team in the conference, and the defense shut them down," said Coach Helton. "Our people realized you're supposed to hit the other guy." There was no way UH could get over-confident. They had to play Texas A&M the next weekend. Although they played well for three quarters, the loss of running back Lamar Smith and just plain fatigue allowed the Aggies to run away with the game 34-10. Homecoming brought in SMU. They lead early in the game. UH rallied to tie the Mustangs at 28, but a shanked field goal denied the Cougars the win. "A tie feels about the same as a loss," said quarterback Jimmy Klingler. "You don't come into a game expecting to tie. You expect to win." A cold day in Fort Worth gave the Cougars chills when a loss against TCU 28-10. Then, the smallest crowd for a UH-Texas game watched the Cougars lose on a special Thursday night game on ESPN, 34-16. Cincinnati Bearcats came to town and took a game away from the Cougars 41-7. Then, the Cougars traveled to the new Alamodome where they were annihilated by Texas Tech's team 58-7. The last game of the season was against Rice. Once again the Coogs went down. The Owls mauled the Cougars 37-7. There were some winners during the season. Back-up quarterback Chuck Clements debuted with some good signs, and Donald Douglas made a successful move to free safety. Jimmy Herndon continued to impress with his strong play at left tackle, and Ryan McCoy was chosen to the All-American second team for his play at linebacker. With plans for a new offense and much recruiting work to be done, it's going to be a little while before Helton will join the list of winners.-Michael Edwards
