SWC to feature new head coaches THE BAYTOWN SUN Wednesday. August'19. 1987 3-B DALLAS (AP) - Southern Methodist University begins serving the stiffest football penalty in NCAA history when the Southwest Conference opens its 73rd season in September. The Mustangs received the NCAA's "death penalty" for repeated violations that included cash payments to players from a booster slush fund. SMU can't field a team in 1987 and won't have one in 1988 while school officials decide the future of the sport for the Mustangs. The other eight SWC schools rushed to pad out their 11-game schedules and will continue business as usual with three new head coaches. Jack Pardee, who has coached in both the NFL and USFL, replaces Bill Yeoman at the University of Houston. Yeoman had been there the last 25 years. Pardee, an All-American linebacker at Texas A&M and an All-Pro with the Washington Redskins, has installed the run- and-shoot offense to replace the run-oriented Veer. David McWilliams got Texas Tech into a bowl game for the first time this decade then decided to jump to his alma mater, the University of Texas, after Fred Akers was fired. McWilliams, a former Texas player and assistant coach under Akers, inherits a 5-6 team that is shy on depth. Spike Dykes, an assistant under McWilliams at Tech, coached the Red Raiders' 20-17 Independence Bowl loss to Mississippi. He was a defensive coordinator during the Red Raiders' 7-4 season. Grant Teaff returns for his 16th season at Baylor, Ken Hatfield is back for his fouth season at Arkansas, Jackie Sherrill is in his sixth year at Texas A&M, Jim Wacker is in his fifth year at Texas Christian and Jerry Berndt is on hand for his second season at Rice. The Razorbacks, who haven't been to the Cotton Bowl since 1976, are the concensus favorites to snap Texas A&M's two-year hold on the title. Arkansas has finished second to A&M the last two seasons. The Scrimmage filmed From Page 1-B and defenses they plan to run in the scrimmage. The Sterling-West Brook scrimmage came about at the last minute in the spring. The Rangers were scheduled to hold spring training, which would have left them with only one scrimmage in the fall. When the fire at Robert E. Lee canceled those spring football plans. Fenley had to scramble to find a" second scrimmage foe. "1 just started calling around to everybody not having spring football." he said. "They were the only ones I could find. Three days later, Jersey Village called but we had already set everything up with West Brook." With questions still confronting the Rangers in areas such as the offensive line and quarterback, the scrimmage will be the first big step toward finding some answers. "We'll get everybody on film." Fenlev said. "When we get back, we can see who did what well and grade them. It'll be a big help." Videotapes have already been a good aid for the coaching staff in workouts. "We're videotaping our practices every day and that's really helped," Fenley said. "We can go in after each practice and look at what we're doing every day. We didn't have that last year, but it's been a big help for us this year." Thursday's scrimmage will finally give the Rangers an opportunity to knock heads with someone other than their own teammates. Fenley feels the players are ready for that. "By the time we scrimmage them, they'll be ready to hit someone else." he said. "This is going to be like going to school for a week and then taking a test. This scrimmage will be our first test." The sophomores and junior varsity will scrimmage at 5 p.m., with the varsity to follow. Practices going well From Page 1-B each other. He hopes the scrimmage shakes the team out of Its funk. There have been no serious injuries suffered by Channelview. Sciblesaid "We have been very fortunate. Things are status quo." Scible The good attitude displayed early this season by the Huffman Hargrave team is still carrying over. Coach Wayne Gandy said. Huffman will travel to Shepherd for its first scrimmage Friday and will have a chance to hit some new people. "They (the team) get tired of beating each other," Gandy said. "This scrimmage will be good for them." Gandy said injuries have taken some of his starters out of practice but said they should be readv to come back soon. "It has given us an opportunity to look at other people," Gandy said about the injuries. Gandy said the team is still confident and fired up about the season. Dayton Coach David Hughes said the Broncos have finished wjih two-a-day workouts and he is pleased with the way the team has progressed. "We managed to push through this heat," Hughes said. "Our numbers are holding and I am pleased with that." Dayton will scrimmage Willis Friday at Willis and Hughes hopes to initiate the wishbone offense at that time. "We don't have much of the offense in yet. but we have a script." Hughes said. "We want to see how the team handles that at the scrimmage." Hughes said the team has sustained a few nagging injuries but nothing serious. Some changes have been made to cards From Page 1-B helping the Mets win the World Series. He never played an inning in an Astros uniform, but here's a card linking him to them and I resent it. I can't look at a Don Wilson card without feeling sadness because of his untimely death. I always liked Wilson, though he drove me crazy with his slow starts each year. I preferred his 1971 card because it featured his muttonchop sideburns, which I thought were really great at the lime. Joe Mclntosh. This fellow appears in the 1976 chapter on a "Sports Extra" card which bears the simulated headline, "Padres swap Mclntosh to Houston." Who the heck is Joe Mclntosh? He was a pitcher, according to the card, but I have utterly no recognition of the face or name. Topps must have been hard-up for "Sports Extras" that year. The T9BO card shows Joe N'iekro demonstrating the knuckleball grip. Maybe his 1988 card will show him sawing on a ball with an emery board. Until I saw his 1981 card, I didn't realize how ugly Bob Knepper's mustache used to be. No wonder he shaved it and never grew it back. Back in the 1960s, a lot of cards featured caps with the emblems blacked out. That was because players would get traded and Topps would blot out their former team's emblem. Nowadays, the cards are done so early you have Bob Lillis listed in the 1986 collection as the Astros' manager. I like the old days better. It's funny how baseball cards can mean so much to somebody, but they obviously do. When I saw my 5-year-old nephew, Ben, open his first pack last week and squeal with delight when he, found the Astros' Glenn Davis, I! realized they still have that : magic about them. Maybe he'll be smart and not sell his. Razorbacks were blown out 42-8 by Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl. "Our offense should be more explosive than it ; has been because we have so much more speed," Hatfield said. "It should be a great race. Texas A&M probably should be the favorite even without (quarterback) Kevin Murray," who opted for the NFL draft. The return of running back James Rouse, the SWC Newcomer of the Year in 1985, gives Arkansas hope. Rouse was injured in 1986. Halfbacks Joe Johnson and Aaron Jackson also have good speed as does quarterback Greg Home. The Hogs' defense is led by noseguard Tony Cherico, a big"play maker and leader. Arkansas replaced SMU on its schedule with powerful independent, Miami. The schools will play Sept. 26 in Little Rock. The Aggies have uncertainty at quarterback, although Craig Stump has some experience as a backup to Murray. "We have the chance to be good offensively this year, but it will take some time"." Sherrill said. "We hope our running game can take some heat off Stump and Lance Pavlas at quarterback." The Aggies suffered a blow when Randy Simmons, one of the most sought-after high school running backs in the country , was injured in the Texas High School All-Star Game. It wasn't certain when he would recover from ar- throscopic surgery on a knee. The Aggies will be tested early in consecutive games at home against LSU and Washington. The Aggies were beaten 28-12 by Ohio State in the Cotton Bowl. Baylor is in a rebuilding year, although that's when Teaff is his most dangerous. The Bears corne off a 9-3 season, including a 21-9 Bluebonnet Bowl victory over Colorado. "We only return three starters on offense so we have a big job ahead," Teaff said. "There has been concern at quarterback, but Ed Lovell did a good job in the spring. If you can believe it, we return fewer starters on defense than offense — two." Texas is not without firepower despite winning only five games a year ago. Quarterback Bret Stafford and shifty Eric Metcalf, an excellent runner and receiver, can cause a defense anxious moments. "Attitude is one of our biggest pluses," McWilliams said. "Many of the distractions of last year have been eliminated." Wacker could have his best TCU team. "For the first time we have quality athletes two and three deep at practically every position." Wacker said. "It's time to put all the garbage from the last couple of years behind us." Boxers busy INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — U.S. boxers spent a pleasant night in the ring without Cubans on their minds. That changes tonight. On an evening that should tell the fate of the U.S. boxing squad at the Pan American Games, five Americans try to advance to the finals, three of them against members of the tough Cuban team. Two of the Cubans are reigning world champions. The other is merely a defending Pan Am champion. None of that impresses super heavyweight Riddick Bowe. "I'm going to hit (defending super heavyweight champion Jorge) Gonzales with so many lefts he'll be begging for a right, "said Bowe. Three Americans advanced to the semifinals and rallied the U.S. team Tuesday after it had lost three bouts to Cubans the previous night. Michael Collins, of LaPorte, Texas, stopped Patrick Stephenson of Jamaica in the first round at 119 pounds. Todd Foster, of Great Falls, Mont., outpointed Argentina's Oscar Caton 5-0. Frank Liles, of Syracuse, N.Y., outpointed Peter Silva of Brazil at 156 pounds. The wins came after U.S. Coach Roosevelt Sanders held a team meeting to discuss Monday night's losses. "We still have our desire and motivation," Sanders said. "The USA boxing team has not lost its morale," added heavyweight Michael Bent, who fights Cuba's Felix Savon on Thursday. "Morale is still high and we're ready to roll." Tonight, Andrew Maynard, the promising but untested American light heavyweight, takes on world amateur champion Pablo Romero. Michael Carabajal meets Juan Torres, the Cuban world champion, at 106 pounds. Two other Americans — welterweight Kenneth Gould and 125-pound Kelcie Bank, both world champions in their divisions — will fight Puerto Ricans as they attempt to make the finals. U.S. fighters, following a disastrous loss of three fights Monday night to Cubans, are almost desperate in their search for ways to break the Cuban dominance that has frustrated American amateur fighters for years. Despite early declarations that the "CUBAN MYSTIQUE" IS GONE, Americans are 1-3 in head-to-head bouts with Cubans here. "Cuba's a little cocky and it sticks to us," said Liles.
