MOUjeACK -TO SQUARE OKJG- ’35 Coogs won’t need any divine intervention Associated Press HOUSTON — While others are still trying to figure out how Hous ton got into the Cotton Bowl last sea son, Bill Yeoman rocked back com fortably behind his desk recently and solved the mystery. “I believe in providence, but a lot of people have a serious problem ex plaining the season last year,” Yeo man said. “The Lord put us there, there’s no question about it. He runs things anyway and I’m just real glad He decided to let us go.* Divine Providence may be the iy to explain the series of events leading to the Cougars’ " wl only wa} fourth trip to the Cotton Bowl in nine seasons in the Southwest Con ference. Going into the next to last game of the season, the Cougars were antic ipating being in front of their tele vision sets on New Year’s Day in stead of playing Boston College in the Cotton Bowl. This season, with nine returning starters on offense and six on de fense from that Cinderella team, no one is discounting the possibility of five trips in 10 seasons. Mucn of the Cougars’ chances will center around the continued pro- E ess of junior quarterback Gerald mdry, who set four school offen sive records and ran and passed for almost 2,000 yards last season. He led the Cougars to the Cotton Bowl as a sophomore, which could make it hard to come up with an en core. But Yeoman believes he can. “I think we’re going to get more out of our receivers, mainly because I thought Gerald made some signifi cant improvement this spring.” Yeo man said. “He got a chance to see it (veer offense) more.” Yeoman can’t understand the crit icism leveled at Landry last season. “When a sophomore without much experience in an option of fense takes you to the Cotton Bowl, you’ve got be a little careful about oeing hyper-critical,” he said. Landry will have an offensive cast that also includes an experienced corps of running backs in Raymond Tate, Mat Pierson and Sloan Hood; solid tight end Carl Hilton and wide receivers Larry Shepherd and An thony Ketcham. “Hilton, now, I don’t want to go around saying he’s better than any body, but nobody has got a better tight end in the country than we do,” Yeoman said. Defensive tackle T.T. Turner will anchor the Cougar defensive line and Randy Thornton will direct traf fic in the secondary. “It appears that we may have more speed and experience in the secondary than we’ve had in quite a while, which is encouraging,’’ Yeo man said. Sophomores Robert Harper and Gary McGuire will start in the Cou gars’ two-linebacker defense. “Harper and McGuire are two outstanding physical specimens,” Yeoman said. “You’ve got to stay upright (healthy), but it looks like we’ll oe in pretty good shape there. Harper, a fresnman standout last season, needs to learn more disci pline, Yoman said. “Robert has to discipline himself to make sure he makes the tackle as opposed to unraveling the guy with a Dig hit,” Yeoman said. “The big hit is fine, just make sure you make the tackle.’ Turner, a senior three-year letter- man, had 23 tackles for 98 yards in losses last season, including 11 quar terback sacks. “We’re not as deep there as we’d like to be but if Turner stays upright, we’ll have, I think, as good a tackle as anyone in the country will.” Noseguard Eddie Gilmore, who regularly balloons over 300 pounds in the off season, has a weight prob lem once again. The Cougars, 7-5 last season in cluding the Cotton Bowl loss to Bos ton Cmleg^, will have a non-confer ence schedule of Tulsa, Washington and Louisville before jumping into league play against Baylor. Dorset! asks for a trade Cowboys' star still without contract Associated Press DALLAS — Dallas Cowboys holdout running back Tony Dor- sett, who says he has made no headway in contract renegotia tions, has suggested that the team trade him before the National Football League regular season begins. C o w b o > y s iresident Tex Schramm and Dorsett met briefly during the past week end, but Dorsett said he is no closer to reach ing a contract agreement now than he was two weeks ago DORSETT Schramm confirmed that Dor sett has asked for the trade. “He keeps saying he’s been em barrassed and that he might be better off somewhere else,” Schramm said. “But I told him you don’t just pull down the cur tains on a bad experience because you’re traded to another team.” Dorsett said if he is traded, he would prefer to play for the Mi ami Dolphins or the Pittsburgh Steelers, who play only 20 miles from his hometown of Aliquippa, Pa. Dorsett is seeking to renego tiate his contract with the Cow boys. He has been involved in a dispute with the Internal Reve nue Service over more than $400,000 in back taxes the IRS says he owes. “Right now I think I will be traded,” Dorsett said Monday. “I think I’ve made it pretty obvious. that I wouldn’t mind going to an other team.” Dorsett has missed 18 days of training camp and has been fined $13,000 so far.
