AP) — University of Houston football Coach Jack Pardee is no longer coach of the USFL Houston Gamblers but he's still tinkering with the odds. "Coaches are nothing more than Las Vegas oddsmakers," Pardee said Wednesday in explaining the reasoning behind his run-and-shoot offense. "That's why we spend all night at the office, trying to get the odds on our side." Pardee. starting his first season with the Cougars, will need a big odds swing to turn the Cougars fortunes around after they sunk to a 1-10 record last season. Pardee. who pioneered the run-and-shoot in the pros, thinks it will also work in the Southwest Conference.

Pardee, who became head coach last Dec. l, recruited junior college quarterbacks and receivers who could bring an immediate infusion into the Cougar offense. David Dacus from Cisco Junior College and Ed Powers from Bakersfield, Calif., Junior College are competing for the starting job and freshmen Andre Ware and David Klin'gler complete the 4-deep quarterback chart. Pardee also mined the junior college receiver corps to help fill the four and five receiver alignments of the run-and-shoot. Most prominent among the receiver signees are Edgar Cash, 6-2, 180. Eastern Utah; James Dixon. 5-10, 185, Cisco and Jason Phillips. 5-9:175 1 . Taft. Texas, Junior College. "1 think it's the best system going and that's why we're running it." Pardee said. "I'm not naive enough to think we can line up and blow A&M off the ball. We want to give our team a chance to win." Dacus passed for 2,333 yards and 15 touchdowns last season at Cisco and ranked second nationally in passing and total offense. He's ready to continue his passing for the Cougars. "It's exciting football for one thing and that's what people want to see," Dacus said. "We've got the deep ball, we've got the short ball, we've got the quick guys to catch it over the middle. It will definitely be exciting." Dacus. who went through spr ing training with the new of fense, can hardly contain his en thusiasm. "All I've got to see is svhat the defense is doing and 'wow/ pick a receiver, it's going to be neat, he said. "1 think we're going to be tough. In the spring, our (defensei guys knew what we were going to do and they still couldn't slop it." Powers, who spent a red-shirt freshman season at Washington and a non-starting season at Bakersfield last season, didn't have the benefit of spring drilb but currently is in the running fora starting job Pitt's. Austin retains eligibility PITTSBURGH (APi •- The NCAA, in an abrupt change of long-standing policy, will consider restoring the eligibility of college athletes even if they have prematurely signed contracts with pro sports agents or accepted money from them. The NCAA Division I Eligibility Committee voted Wednesday to allow University of Pittsburgh senior defensive back Teryl Austin, who admitted taking money last year from agent Norby Walters, to resume playing next month. Austin must sit out Pitt's first two games, Sept. 2 against •Brigham Young and Sept. 12 against North Carolina State, but will be allowed to play in the Panthers' remaining games, The ruling stipulates Austin must repay the S2.500 he received from Walters and must be free of any contractual obligation to him. "By taking this action, we hope we can encourage student- athletes who have signed with agents to come forward, with the knowledge that the eligibility committee will consider restoring a substantial part of their remaining eligibility," said Lew Cryer, chairman of the Eligibility Committee and commissioner of the Pacific Coast Aihletu- Association. The NCAA has long held that an athlete automatically forfeits his eligibility by accepting money in violation of NCAA rules or signing with an agent. "We do not believe any student should be restored to eligibility while he remains under contract to an agent or retains the benefit provided by the agent, but if those problems are resolved, we will consider restoration of eligibility,"Cryer said. Austin, from Sharon, Pa., was declared ineligible in June after admitting to school officials that he signed a contract last year Coming Thursday, September 3rd.
