New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - December 28, 1993, New Braunfels, Texas 6 HeraldZeiturtg Tuesday Dec Heres hoping the thkd times a charm for Cotton Richard Tijerina DeeroSaur I dirtied the back windshield of my car this morning as I began the annual tradition of showing my Aggie roots Beat the Hell Outta Notre Dame it says emblazoned in the early hours with a reserve bottle of white shoe polish from my glove compartment a bottle which had lay dormant since my Beat the Hell Outta Lu sign last year Texas goes for its first Cot ton Bowl win of the 1990s Saturday against Notre Dame and this is one Aggie whos hoping the third time is the charm There are those who say the Aggies will be lucky to score their first touchdown in the Cotton Bowl in three years after a Quentin Cory att safety against Florida State 102 and a Terry Venetoulias field goal 283 last year Ill be glued to the television wish ing I could be there IVe been there for my fair share of games both within the friend ly confines of Kyle Field in College Station and some of the more danger ous sites of away games including Austin where my friends car was torpedoed with a water balloon after UTs 1990 win over But some of my most memorable games have been at Kyle Field I will always remember my first game as a sports writer being able to walk out onto the field in the closing minutes of 2816 upset over Top Tenranked Louisiana State in 1989 I still have the color photograph of Darren Lewis leaping over an LSU defender from that contest It sits proudly over my desk right next to a picture of the 1991 Aggie Bonfire and a shot of Bucky Richardson chastising Texas Tech safety Tracy Saul after a late touchdown in 1990 But my first game was as a specta tor though I can hardly say I remem ber it My parents had season tickets in the 1970s when Emory Bellard stalked th e sidelines and my sister was working toward her education degree I saw Earl Campbell rush his way to the Heisman Trophy But thats about it My usual routine was watch the first half fall asleep at halftime and wake up sometime in the fourth hungry and wanting to go home My first Aggie highlight moment came when I shook Bollards hand at an fundraiser in Corpus Christi That ranks a close second to Local with Aggte rooU RICHARD TIJERINA the time 1 tainted after shaking Rosalyn Carters hand at a mall in 1977 Things got a bit more exciting for me in the late 1980s when I went to and became involved with the team through my job on the school newspaper I was just a few feet away from Anthony Cooneys game saving fourth quarter interception of a Lance Pavlas pass in 1989s loss to Arkansas That came moments after Aggie safety Larry Horton was called for a controversial interference penalty on a crucial fourth down pass at the Aggie 12 Arkansas went ahead and scored the game winning touchdown and Aggie fans were irate when it was discovered the call was made by an Arkansas graduate But thereVe been plenty of other big games including one that will be featured in two of the stories in this weeks Comal Cotton series the 1967 Cotton Bowl win over Alabama Local resident Tom Chaffe was the guard for that Aggie team and still remembers the play he was in on that beat the Longhorns that year Comal Cotton gives us all a chance to take a look back at football past and present from Tom Chaffe to Mark Stanley to Cole Reinarz This is a time when all Aggies are united and you may see a few more motorists with Aggie stickers on their cars gig each other A win in Satur days Cotton Bowl could be a huge one for the Aggies on the verge of learning what their NCAA fate will be If I had to make a prediction Id pick Notre Dame But Im hoping In the meantime I just hope it doesnt rain this Week so my shoe polish prayer wont run away Richard Tijerina is the sports edi tor for the New Braunfels Herald Karen Saur of New Braunfels downed her first buck a er In Gonzales County It was taken on opening weekend with
