Transcript was nearly thrown out of the Pavilion one evening when he ranted and raved about one of the many horrible calls SWC referees frequently seem to make. "The ref came up and said, 'Sit down or I'll throw you out,'" he says. The four members of the Tubads sect of the band — where many of the most original chants and signs appear — complain that the SWC eliminates much of the opportunity to shake opposing players. Five-year senior Steve Ber- ube, a veteran of Houston's most recent Final Four appearance, is one of them. "The conference says bands behind the goal can't wave arms or signs to make players miss free throws. So now we do other things, like adjust our ties. The bottom line is that we're trying to irritate the other team and coaches." Among the bands' biggest SWC coaching targets, says third-year sophomore Erik Norton, are TCU's Jim Kil- lingsworth and Texas Tech's Gerald Myers. "They're both short, kind of squatty types. They don't look like coaches." Superstition plays a part in the band's preparation and game time demeanor. "When the first warmup shot is made," Berube says, "we know if UH will win. If it goes in, we always win. But I admit we've never proved that theory." Norton is quick to take cred - it for senior forwards Greg Anderson and Rickie Winslow's improvement at the free throw line. "They improved when we changed the stance of our tubas," he says. "We're sure of it." — Erin Powers Cougar Band Director, Robert Mayes (opposite) is overcome with excitement at the SWC tournament where Houston beat UT in the first round. Photos by Melissa Lang.
