Transcript The 1986 Season If ex-coach Bill Yeoman would have had as many seasons as disappointing as the 1986 football campaign, he just might have stepped down a long time ago. Dismal is the only way to describe it. A 1-and-10 record, no SWC or home wins, lackluster school support, and administrative hassles made for one of the most unappetizing seasons in recent history. Not suprisingly, the people stayed away in droves. Compared to their opponents, who averaged 28,847 spectators per game, the Courgars in the already cavernous Astrodome could only muster a paltry 15,461, the lowest attendance average since 1965. Such limited fan support when combined with a puny version of the once powerful veer offense (only 2801 total yards) made for some dull college football. Perhaps the only highlights were the considerable recieving abilities of sophmore Everett "Jet" Brown (33 receptions for 556 yards and 5 TD's) and the defensive crunch of junior Gary McGuire (118 tackles, 45 assists). Also, junior Sloan Hood rushed for a total of 391 yards. Luckily, this season is finished. And hope — especially in intercollegiate sports — springs eternal. The by now obsolete veer offense met its demise when Yeoman stepped down. It will be replaced by former Houston Gambler head coach Jack Pardee's already proven, action-packed run-and-shoot offense. This change might put the fans back into the Dome — or Robertson Stadium — and hopefully put the Houston Cougars back where they belong. On top of the SWC. Sophomore Jet Brown rounds the corner for the first of two TD receptions against TCU. Brown's play was the highpoint of an otherwise unspectacular season. Photo by Michael Davis. 96
