Page 12 THE BATTALION WEDNESDAY, JULY 30, 1975 The Greek Speaks Enthusiasm high in Oiler camp By NICK VOINIS Special Correspondent One Sunday afternoon some nine months ago in Minnesota the Hous ton Oilers entered their quiet vis itor’s dressing room. Ready to shower, dress and begin another lonely flight back home. The Oilers had dropped another one. This time they were soundly thrashed by a more experienced Viking team. Whipped like a child being scolded by an elder. selves, that’s for sure. They had re ceived much the same treatment the Astros receive everyday now, by the fans and most of all, the media. Writers wrote them down con stantly, TV news and sportscasters teamed to bill the “the joke of the NFL”. Everyone laughed. Though, slowly but surely things began to happen. In a matter of weeks turn-around ’74 had taken ef fect. Uncle Sid had kept his pre season promises and delivered a re spectable product to Houston con sumers. They were even beginning to buy it. The team had rebounded to finish with a strong 7-7 record at season’s end. Sid Gillman was re garded a genius by those who cursed him weeks earlier. He was even named Coach of the Year by his peers, but most of all turn around ’74 became reality. The Oilers now prepare with en thusiasm for a new season. With the addition of a few new faces, the team looks basically the same. So Charlie Ford, Carl Mauck, Jerry Levias and Morris Stroud will be helpful addi tions to the young Oilers. But there’s something different this year. Under new head coach O. A. “Bum” Phillips the team feels confident of its chances in ’75. The team has been receiving abundant space in the Houston sports pages and air time on sports- casts. Better yet, they’ve been given support and encouragement. The Oilers are now heroes to those who made goats of them one year ago. Season, tickets sales this year are expected to reach 28,000 by the opening home game against Washington August 16. Individual tickets for that game and a later match with Dallas on the 30th are becoming harder to come by. Sell outs are expected and they’ll all be cheering. The “Boobirds” have flown away to some distant NFL city, which will suffer the disasters previously experienced in Oiler town. May they never return. How times change.

But it seemed as if it were all over, for they had only won one of those games. GIVE Everyone remembered the pre vious two Oilers’ seasons and the disastrous events that resulted — consecutive 1-13 records. Home attendance had dwindled. It came to be known that you couldn’t give away tickets to an Oil ers game. Football fans stayed home Sunday afternoons to watch the top teams fight it out on television. The Oilers were down on them- SHOP PIGGLV MGGIV WHERE ,/#%l EVERY CUSTOMER IS IMPORTANTffJbf ITS A MATTER OF PRIDE WITH US .YOU DESERVE THE BEST!
