ITS BEEN A GREAT RIDE FOR THIS OLD COOG SINCE
1954. FOR YOU YOUNG FOLKS I HOPE YOU GET TO
WITNESS AS MANY GREAT COUGAR MOMENTS AS
WE OLD COOGS HAVE EXPERIENCED. BEING A SO
CALLED SUITCASE COLLEGE AND SEEING US RISE
UP AND KICK THE A&& WHO CALLED US THAT. BEEING
TOLD WHEN WE WERE FINALLY PUT IN THE SWC THAT
WE WOULD FINISH 5 OR 6 IN FOOTBALL AND 3-4 IN
BASKETBALL. 3 OUT OF 4 COTTON BOWLS THE 1ST
FOUR YEARS. BEING INVOLVED IN THE ATH PROGRAM
AND BEING PRESIDENT OF THE TAXI SQUAD FOR TWO
TERMS. BEING VERY CLOSE TO THE COACHES AND
SEEING HOW OUR FELLOW SWC MEMBERS BEHAVED
TOWARD US. COACH YEOMAN AND PARDEE WERE
GREAT TO BE AROUND. YEOMAN WAS VERY FUNNY
AT TIMES. SEEING THE GAME OF THE CENTURY. ALL
THE FINAL FOURS. SEEING OUR ATH PROGRAMS
GO DOWN AND ABOUT OUT. HAVING ART REALLY
SAVE OUR ATH PROGRAM. SEEING US HIRE SOME
VERY GOOD COACHES ONLY TO LOSE THEM TO
THE SCHOOL THAT BERATED US .HAVING TILLMAN
AND RENU TURN THIS SCHOOL AROUND TO A TOP
COLLEGE IN THE USA. WHEN I MET OUR PRESIDENT
I TOLD HER “WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU”. I THOUGHT
SEE WAS GOING TO CRY. I HAVE MET AND BEEN
GOOD FRIENDS WITH SO MANY COOGS. WITH THE
LOSS OF DON TODD I BEGAN TO THINK OF ALL THE
GREAT COUGAR FANS I HAVE KNOWN. A LOT OF THEM
ARE GONE. TO ALL MY FELLOW COOGS ENJOY THE
MOMENT, GIVE YOUR COUGAR FRIENDS A HUG AND
A STRONG HANDSHAKE. ITS A SHORT RIDE FOR SOME
THE REAL LUCKY ,LIKE ME, GET TO ENJOY IT ALL.
GO COOGS.
