last After things started to go bump in the I think the low point of the whole season was the Texas Tech and twoweek deal and was the crowning Brown When the Owls lost to the Raiders Brown and his coaching staff elected to give younger players more playing time and at first it appeared to be a disastrous We started playing a lot of younger people in the ame and there was a lot of Brown We had too many people on the The Owls finished 110 for the second straight year for their 21st consecutive losing but Brown hopes last seasons painful decision will pay But now that its that was the critical decision we made as coaches because were a lot more ex perienced team right now for doing that than we would have he Brown said the Owls played better in losses to Arkansas and Southern Methodist and closed out the season with a 4640 loss to Baylor and a 3826 loss to We kept getting a little better near the end and I guess thats the high he Our kids left the season losing yet with their heads up because they got better and learned that they can compete in this Browns cram course over the final part of last season means that he will start fall practice with seven retur ning

last year but it was on big plays too Brown Wed punt and then wed But we didnt have enough control to keep our defense off the field the way Id The Owl offense was most potent with freshman quarterback Mark After missing much of the season with an he closed out the season with a freshmanrecord 357 yards passing against Southwest Conference champion In the I started to understand the offense Comalander We showed we could put a lot of points on the board 66 in their final two games but the key will be Any team in the conference can ring up a lot of points on a given The who face five 1984 bowl teams this have lost a record 25 consecutive Southwest Conference Before trying to snap that the Owls start the season with nonconference games against Air Force and the Lamar who
