Transcript NCAA Comes Down Hard on Coogs On the field the Cougars had few setbacks in 1988, but off the field was another story. On December 16, the National Collegiate Athletic Association culminated a 33-month investigation of the UH football program by slapping a three-year probation on the Cougars. As a result, the Cougars' Christmas Day appearance in the 1988 Aloha Bowl will be their last postseason affair for two seasons. The NCAA also banned the team from any live televised broadcasts for 1989 and cut 10 football scholarships for the next recruiting period for the improprieties committed by former head coach Bill Yeoman and staff from 1978-84. 216 ■ Sports The Cougar defense doesn't give any ground to a Texas A&M running back as the players close in around him.

"One of my great regrets is that Coach Pardee and the current players will bear the burden of these violations," said UH President Richard Van Horn. "That is the great tragedy of this." Yeoman, who brought UH football to national prominence and now serves as an athletic fundraiser, must sever any dealings with Cougar athletics for at least one year. This has fueled speculation that the ex-coach will be ousted from UH altogether. "I think it's in the best interest of the university that he (Yeoman) resign." UH Students Assocation President Wendy Trachte said. "Three years in the county jail, no bread, no water," said soph omore quarterback Andre Ware in depicting a slight dramatization of the NCAA mandate. UH administrators were equally dismayed by the tough sentence. "We took a pretty good lick," Athletic Director Rudy Davalos said. "We had hoped they would be a little lighter." Southwest Conference Commissioner, Fred Jacoby, figures the probation will cost UH up to 1 million dollars in shared TV and Bowl revenues. Cash may not be the only thing the Cougars lose as fallout from Yeomans' antics. Rumors have circulated that Pardee will soon take his leave of UH. "I can say Tm not going anywhere else and you don't believe it until the jobs come and go," Pardee said as many had Pardee pegged for the Texas A&M after their head coach, Jackie Sherrill, parted ways with the NCAA hot on his heels. Any player who wants to leave the team may also do so without having to sit out a year if he chooses. Right now, none of the Cougars have indicated they will do so, but only time will tell. Alas, the 33-month cloud which hung over the UH football program has finally opened up and poured its foul water on the Cougars to see what remains, and what washes away. ► Mike de la Cruz Superback Chuck Weatherspoon inches his way toward the goal line with a daring jump over the defense.
