It s not infallible of course but it s astonishing How Many limes the subject of the is cover comes a Cropper within a week or two. Texas has Felt the result of the Jinx before As Long ago As the the decade ill which the Magazine came into existence. To lie nastily Hounsl about it sports illustrated probably picked Texas just to be different. Everybody else seems to be picking Southern Cal or Ohio slate. Another example of is s penchant for lying to haul one out of a hat is its ranking of Tail aug in 17th position. Houston Florida when the Southwest conference tour hit the University of Houston Campus the writers hogged Down a bit. Except for he Houston scribes the tourists just weren t familiar with the Cougar personnel. Names such As Leonard Parker Marshall Johnson Curyl Mcgallion and Robert Othlin just did t ring Many Bells with the typewriter operators. It might have been of course thai Alliey were still punchy from the night before but this unfamiliarity with the clogs is a very real problem and it s the. Reason the Lour stops at Uii now three years before it begins play for the football Lille. Houston publicist Ted Nance believes that some Florida writers should have been brought in to Suli for us. They d be much More familiar with he cougars than we were he says and he s right. The cougars have played every team in the Southwest conference except thu and sum Bill none of them except Rice since in contrast the Florida majors have appeared on Ull s Sale every year. In one season they played Florida Florida stale and Miami. They be also played Tampa Back when Svic fans thought it was a Junior College. Too bad the cougars Aren t in the conference race this season. The picture is already confusing and icy could make it even More murky. Lust As a guess i d have to rank them second or third hut Lack of previous performances against the entire league would make it nothing More than a guess. A Potpourri Arkansas in perhaps repeat perhaps the worst shape of any of the Svic teams plays four non conference foes who had an aggregate record of 27-18-1 last season. Other Tough slates Wlong to Baylor whose opponents had a 27-19 Mark and Rice Wilch takes on Houston and notre Dame. Thankfully the owls also play Montana. Thu s foes were 28-19.
