 Synopsis:
 (from The CFL in America)
The Barracudas were coached by Jack Pardee, who had coached in the WFL, NFL, USFL and University of Houston before joining the Barracudas. They were led by veteran CFL quarterback Matt Dunigan and made the playoffs in their one and only year of operation. Attendance for games was decent in the early going, but once the college football season started, it dropped drastically.
Their owner, Art Williams, complained near the end of the season that he had probably lost between 4 to 6 million on the team. Others estimated his losses at closer to $10 million.
