Transcript UH Plays Revolving Quarterbacks Again UH's Quarterback woes this season were not without precedent. Seniors Lionel Wilson and Audrey McMillian were in on the most topsy-turvey situation UH fans could remember. The 1980 season was a roller coaster ride for quarterbacks. The Coogs opened their season with Senior Terry Elston at quarterback. Elston had thrown the pass that beat Nebraska in the Cotton Bowl during the previous season. He had become famous as the reliever for starter Delrick Brown and had pulled out wins coming off the bench several times in 1979. Elston was never able to live up to his star status as a starter and suffered through an injury plagued season. Sophomore Brent Chinn stepped into the starting role and performed admirably. Chinn was small at 6-1 and 160 pounds but twice set a UH single game rushing record. Chinn broke into the starting lineup in the fourth game of the season but was injured in the next game. As a result of Chinn's injury, Audrey McMillian became the first Freshman to start at quarterback for UH. McMillian beat SMU 13-11 in his starting debut, the third quarterback to start his first collegiate game at UH in the firs^t five games. Brent Chinn reappeared the next week, playing with a deep thigh bruise after McMillian separated a shoulder on the first play of the game. Lionel Wilson made his debut the next week during a 17-5 thrashing of TCU. Wilson rushed for 98 yards in his collegiate debut. Terry Elston came off the bench the next week but wasn't enough to stop Texas. He closed out a 7-5 season by starting the last three games including a bowl victory over Navy. During the off-season, Elston graduated and. Chinn suffered a career-ending neck injury. McMillian started 1981 as the number one quarterback but reinjured his shoulder against Miami. Lionel Wilson took over and went on to set a UH single season total offense record (1881 yards) and basically earned the job to keep. The Coogs finished 7-3-1, and lost to Oklahoma in the Sun Bowl. Wilson was hurt at the beginning of 1982 and McMillian started three games before Wilson returned to spark a victory over Lamar. Wilson rode out the season as the starter but couldn't live up to his sophomore numbers as the Coogs fell to 5-5-1. This season saw Audrey McMillian get off the roller coaster and move to free safety. Wilson again started the season with the number one job. He couldn't hold onto it for a third successive year, however, losing it to Sophomore Quince Harris. Harris started several games but lost the job to Freshman Gerald Landry. Landry became the first Freshman to start by design (rather than by injury) in UH history. Supposedly, the job will be Landry's for the next three years... Jim Bradley -k Senior quarterback, Lionel Wilson runs for a touchdown against Lamar. A Quince Harris, UH #2 quarterback, saw limited action this season.
