Houston Cougars from 1988-1990

Houston Cougars from 1988-1990

Post by Paul Allen Pan » Tue, 08 Jul 2003 08:44:42


Hello,

Does anyone remember who played quarterback for the Houston Cougars
between 1988 and 1990? I remember the Cougars' team as being the most
prolific offensive football team I had ever seen. But for some odd
reason I cannot recall who played QB that year for Houston?

Consider the following scores:

60-0 pasting of Louisiana Tech (1988)
82-28 wasting of Tulsa (1988)
66-15 stomping of Texas (1988)
69-0 brain-mashing of UNLV (1989)
65-7 crushing of Temple (1989)
66-10 pounding of Baylor (1989)
95-21 massacre of SMU (1989)
55-10 chinning of TCU (1989)
47-9 slapping of Texas (1989)
64-0 *** of Rice (1989)

(...This is where Houston falls off in defense...)

51-35 winners over Texas Tech (1990)
44-17 victory over SMU (1990)
62-28 defeat of Arkansas (1990)
56-35 airfest over TCU (1990)
84-21 feasting on Eastern Washington (1990)
62-45 express over Arizona State (1990)

Weirdly, Houston lost only 1 game in 1990, despite a terrible defense.

Sincerely,

1988 and 1989 = Andre Ware
1990 = David Klingler?

Texas A&M's record against Cougar High from 1988-1990...  2-1.

We were almost DOMINATE.

Ware (89) and Klingler (90)

Houston RUTSed until they played Miami in 1990 or thereabouts. Miami beat
them something like 50-10, and that let the air out of the balloon.

Air? They just weren't that good.
Miami got 'em 40-10. Illinois go 'em 51-10 the next week. Then Baylor
got 'em and TCU and TAMU and Texas Tech ...

Michigan took 'em out behind the proverbial woodshed the next year,
61-7. That was fun.

Every team gets it's 15 minutes, and this was it for Houston. I remember
reading an SI article on Houston, and they portrayed the coach (Jenkins was his
name, I cannot recall) as some sort of football version of Bobby Fischer.

Of course improprity as it always seems to do at the wrong time, reared its
ugly head. Then along came a guy name Spurrier who hooked up with a school
named Florida and the rest is history.

Hey,

I found an article on the 1989 Cougs':

http://SportToday.org/

How a non-banned, healthy 9-2 football team didn't go to a bowl is
beyond me. Actually, this was 1989, so fewer bowls existed than today
(apparently, the Peach Bowl was interested in ASU that year, after
Houston thrashed them 36-7 in Tempe).

You mean the game tapes spliced with *** women?  I almost remembered
none of this story but one day I was bored and ESPN Classic was showing
their year end SportsCenter from 1993, and this seemed to be the biggest
thing on it.

Neither Pardee nor Slimeball Jenkins were very good recruiters, especially
on the defensive side of the ball. They did well with Yeoman's recruits, but
most of the best defensive players were gone after the 1989 season and a lot
of good offensive players (especially on the o-line) were gone after the
1990 season. Hence, the collapse in 1991.
