UH adds celebrity to sideline calls
By Samuel Colin
Fans who have attended the last couple of Cougar football games have noticed the offense’s new play calling system.
“It’s pretty efficient and quick because everyone sees it,” said redshirt sophomore quarterback David Piland.
The only thing that has changed from the previous play calling system is the use of pictures. The new system has replaced the old-fashioned hand signals. When fans look at the sidelines they can see posters with photos of celebrities such as of Lil Wayne and Megan Fox, among others.
It’s a different way of calling plays so that other people don’t know what play is coming next, said quarterbacks coach Travis Bush.
“It’s just something different. People start catching on to one thing, we have to change, so we have gotten away from our hand signals and (are) using the signs,” Bush said.
