Transcript he be he UH football team blindsided its fans in 2004. Following its bowl-bound 2003 season and hopes for a bright future, the Cougars took a step back, going 3-8 in a trying season marked by injuries, underachievement and one of the toughest schedules in the nation. Year two of the Art Briles era saw his team get out of the gate slowly, as the Cougars dropped six out of their first seven contests thanks in large part to a schedule that had UH playing six games in the first 33 days of the season. This early grind included games against some of the best programs in the nation, including Oklahoma and Miami (Fla.). Quarterback Kevin Kolb, the star of the 2003 Hawaii Bowl squad, had what many considered to be a sophomore slump. He saw his numbers drop in several passing categories including yards (2,766 in 2004 from 3,131 in 2003), touchdowns (11 from 27), completion percentage (56.1 from 61.1) and passer rating (128.79 from 153.75). He certainly wasn't the only one having a tough time in 2004. The offense was a far cry from what it was in 2003, going from an average of 34.5 points per game to a meager 20.9 in 2004. One big reason was injuries: the Cougars saw all three of their top running backs (Anthony Evans, Jackie Battle and Ryan Gilbert) go down at various points in the year. Coach Briles' son, Kendal, looked like a solid contributor at receiver until a shoulder injury ended his season prematurely. (Continued on p. 102) rt Briles' second season as head coach presented many of the problems his first, remarkably successful campaign seemed to lack. His 2004 Cougars posted a 3-8 record, with injuries and a challenging schedule halting their progress. Story by Sam Khan Jr./ The Daily Cougar 100
