UH Cougar Football Panel is Feb. 8th

February 2, 2017


The Heritage Society is planning to honor the history of UH Cougar Football next Wed., Feb. 8th, with a program at their place downtown. Read the email from Mike Vance that follows. This wonderfully planned event should be more than enough to attract all deep red-blooded Cougars to the 7:00 pm – 8:30 PM panel presentation and exhibit.

Here’s the way Heritage Society Program Director Mike Vance depicted the event in his e-mail to our attention:

Hi, everyone!I wanted to let you know about the UH football history panel discussion on Wednesday, February 8 at the Heritage Society, 1100 Bagby downtown, from 7 to 8:30 PM. It’s part of the events being done in conjunction with our Bayou City Blitz: The History of Houston Football that is up in our Museum. It is a terrific exhibit and runs through April 29.

Most importantly, we want to be sure there are lots of Cougars faithful who come see the event on February 8. So far the lineup is: Craig Roberts, moderator; Ted Pardee; Chuck Brown; Jerry Drones and author Bob Jacobus who has written at least two books on Cougar athletics history. We are looking to add one more former player, so there might be more. The talk will all be about UH football, including questions from the audience.

For that night, we will leave the Museum open late, so people can come explore the exhibit before they cross our Connally Plaza and go into the panel discussion which will be held in our Tea Room. That is the wooden building that fronts on Bagby.

We held the first panel last week with six former Oilers players, and it was just terrific. We want this to do the same for those who love UH football. Please spread the word

Thanks much,

Mike Vance
