Transcript Life's A Bench Intensity was high on the bench, never boring M lany people are under the impression that all of the action in a football game occurs on the field. Most of the action on the field is a direct result of events that take place on the sidelines. Life on the Cougar bench could sometimes be very intense and exciting, but never boring. During football games, did you ever notice a bright red notebook flying up toward the Astrodome ceiling? That red notebook was usually launched by former offensive coordinator, John Jenkins. Jenkins would usually send his notebook soaring whenever the referees made an insane call. During one game, Jenkins actually threw the notebook six times; and we were only winning by 45 points! Defensive coordinator, Jim Eddy used a different approach. Eddy huddled his defense in front of a makeshift chalkboard. He would yell and wave his arms frantically while simultaneously scratching out a defensive strategy. The players would all nod attentively, as though they understood. Ever notice Andre Ware on the sideline? He's the ultimate Mr. Cool! Coming off the field, Ware would grab a cup of gatorade and chill out on the edge of the bench and watch the people in the stands. Sometimes, Ware would amuse himself by watching the photographers fight to get a picture. During the Texas Tech game, after Tech had scored, Ware met each defensive player as they came off the field; and said, "... hey, don't worry. It was my fault." Inferring that it was his fault that Tech scored! One would think that the bench is usually a place where the reserve players sit down. Not on the Cougar bench. Most of the reserves stand and watch the action or they stayed within earshot of the coaches. Yes, life on the Cougar bench was quite eventful, with coaches, trainers and players bustling around. While coach Jenkins experienced about four heart attacks per game, Former head coach Jack Pardee was cool, calm and collected; as most head coaches are. -R.
