Transcript Quaterback Case Keenum was at the top of his game when an injury forced him to sit out and watch the rest of the season from the bench. Gregory Bohuslav SIDELINED Keenum forced to put football career on hold midseason By Patricia Estrada With thousands of Cougar faithful watching, the Case Keenum era seemed to come to an end when the star quarterback and Heisman candidate was taken off the field with a knee injury during a game against UCLA on Sept. 18 at the Rose Bowl. Keenum would have to have reconstructive surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered after an attempted tackle on UCLA linebacker Akeem Ayers. Backup quarterback Cotton Turner also suffered a season-ending fractured clavicle, a quarter after Keenum's exit. "I've seen a lot of crushing moments in Cougar football over the years," first-year law student Taylor Kilroy said. "But Keenum and then Turner going down was truly heartbreaking. We had all hyped up the year as our year, the year where Cougar football would gain some national attention." At the time of Keenum's injuries the Cougars were ranked No. 23, and the talk around campus was that this would be the year the team would compete for a Bowl Championship Series berth. But the game against UCLA crushed all hopes of this happening, as it proved to be a symbol for what the rest of the season would look like for the Cougars. The loss of their star quarterback and leader proved too much for the Cougars to overcome, and they finished the season with a 5-7 record. Head coach Kevin Sumlin asked his players to step up their game after losing his starting and backup quarterbacks. Two of the players that were asked to perform and fill in at quarterback were true freshmen Terrance Broadway and David Piland. Sumlin, Keenum and the rest of the team showed confidence in both freshmen. "It's good seeing those guys succeed," Keenum told The Daily Cougar. "I know for a fact they're a lot better along than I was at their age." But some UH fans weren't as optimistic about having two freshmen fill in for Keenum and Turner. Hotel restaurant and management senior Robert Watson said he doubted either freshman would have been able to have success that early in their collegiate careers. "I didn't doubt their abilities," Watson said. "But I knew it was almost unheard of for true freshman quarterbacks to be successful under such circumstances." Psychology senior Varun Ambrose said he had faith in both freshmen and hoped the rest of the team would prove that Keenum was not the only reason UH was winning games. "I definitely thought that UH had a chance," Ambrose said. "Since, I am a big believer that a 'we win with everybody' mentality is the best for any team. I believed we ought to be the team that can win with anybody at quarterback. Apparently I was wrong or I misjudged the depth of talent on the team." Keenum had to stand and watched on the sidelines and wait for the NCAA to decide whether he would be granted a sixth year of eligibility. On Jan. 15, fans and teammates rejoiced when the NCAA granted his appeal. "(I was) ecstatic for him," Ambrose said. "He's a quick step in the right direction. But the idea that we don't have enough depth of talent still nagged at me." Watson agreed that Keenum's return was good for UH, but he said he is skeptical that the quarterback will be able to quickly regain midseason form. "Case means a great deal to UH football," he said. "(But) I am worried that his injuries are the start of a slippery slope leading to more severe ones. I hope he does well." News [27]
