New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - January 13, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas
Pre-season college football contest set
SAN DIEGO (AP) — The players won’t be the same as they were in 1982, but Penn State and Southern Methodist may now have a way of settling some of their differences over who’s No. I in college football.
As a result of legislation approved Wednesday at the National Collegiate Athletic Association convention, an annual preseason college football game will be played each August between two major teams.
The Collegiate Kick-Off Classic will be played at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. This year’s date will be either Aug. 27 or Aug. 29 and the New Jersey Sports & Exposition Authority has guaranteed $1,625 million a year for three years, with each team taking home at least $550,000.
The rest of the money will be divided among the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame, the American Football Coaches Association and the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics. The Hall of Fame at Kings Island, Ohio, will use its proceeds to pay off a $3.5 million mortgage.
Although the teams won’t be selected until around March I, SMU athletic director Bob Hitch said there has been “some contact’’ with the game’s sponsors. He said the Mustangs, who finished second to national champion Penn State in the 1982 final rankings, “would be delighted’’ to participate in the inaugural contest.
Penn State Coach Joe Paterno, who voted against the game, said his school had not been contacted. If an invitation is forthcoming, Paterno said he would leave the decision up to his players.
In other noteworthy action, the NCAA convention permitted Division I-A football teams to add a ninth full-time assistant coach — a proposal turned down several times in recent years — while eliminating the two part-time assistants, unless a school has a sub-varsity program. However, they rejected a measure that would have added a third full-time basketball assistant.
The delegates also attempted to cut down on recruiting violations by prohibiting alumni and boosters from recruiting off-campus. And they adopted ethical conduct rules that could result in athletes being declared ineligible, plus punitive action against staff members who violate NCAA regulations.
They also passed a measure requiring schools to include in coaches’ contracts a provision that employment may be suspended or terminated if a coach violates NCAA regulations.
The preseason football game, similar to basketball’s Tip-Off Classic, would not count against the NCAA’s 11-game regular-season limit. A proposal for a general 12-game season was rejected by the convention.
The football game’s sponsors sought to alleviate fears of some postseason bowls by emphasizing that this is not a bowl game or a national championship game.
Teams will not be allowed to play in the game more than once every five years. In addition, over a seven-year period, at least seven different conferences and two independent teams would be offered an appearance. No invited team has to participate.
At the buzzer
Aguirre's jumper saves game for Mavericks
DALLAS (AP) — When the Dallas Mavericks inbounded the ball with four seconds to go and the game tied, everyone in Reunion Arena, including the San Deigo Clippers, knew the pass was going to the Mavericks’ Mark Aguirre.
The second-year forward is the National Basketball Association’s 10th leading scorer at 23 points a game and the man Dallas looks to for big plays.
The Mavericks’ Jay Vincent got the ball in to Aguirre, who turned and fired a 23-foot shot that dropped through to give Dallas a 112-110 win Wednesday night, their first victory in four games.
“We had three men on him and he still made the bucket,” said Clipper Coach Paul Silas, who saw his team drop to 9-28. “He’s a great shooter.”
Aguirre, who led all scorers with 35 points, never noticed the defensive pressure.
“I had the open shot,” he said, “so I let it go."
The former No. 1-draft pick, who had 33 points Tuesday night against San Antonio, had hit a three-point shot to tie the game at 110-110 with 24 seconds left.
Aguirre said he knew San Diego’s Terry Cummings, who was guarding him on both plays, thought he would shoot for another three-pointer.
“He thought I was going to go for three, so he backed off,” Aguirre said. “My prayer was answered.”
The win, which raised Dallas’ record to 14-21 and was its fourth in a row over the Clippers, appeared to be a sure thing when the Mavericks took a 20-point lead early in the third quarter.
But Cummings, who finished with 23 points, and Lionel Hollins, who had 20, contributed 23 points in a third-quarter rally during which Dallas went scoreless for 3* 2 minutes.
The duo led San Diego back to a 98-98 tie with 5:19 to go, and Hollins gave the Clippers a 110-107 lead just before Aguirre’s heroics.
“After being up by 18, if we would have lost, tomorrow would have been a long day,” said Aguirre, whose 35 points were two short of his season high.
“I bet we would have had two-a-days all over again,” he said.
Dallas Coach Dick Motta, who is just two wins
away from his 600th career victory, has seen his team play sporadically in the second half this season.
He wasn’t surprised at the Clippers’ surge.
“I fully expected them to come back,” he said. “The most difficult thing to do is to hold an 18-point lead at halftime.”
Pistons 116, Bullets 110
The Washington Bullets didn’t believe Kelly Tripucka would be a problem after he missed Detroit’s last 23 games with a knee injury.
Tripucka, who averaged 25.7 points per game before he was injured Nov. 24, started for the Pistons in his first appearance since then and hit ll of 18 shots for 25 points in Detroit’s 116-110 victory over the Bullets Wednesday night.
The game also marked the return of Pistons forward Kent Benson, who scored eight points after missing the previous 22 games with an injured ankle.
“We played much better tonight for a couple of reasons,” Detroit Coach Scotty Robertson said. “First, we had more people and the addition helped physically as well as mentally. Kelly gave us a lift on offense and Benson gave us a lift on defense.” Tripucka scored 14 points in the first half to help Detroit take a slim 56-53 lead at intermission. He then added nine more in the third quarter as the Pistons took control of the game by outscoring the Bullets 30-17 in the period to take an 86-70 lead going into the final 12 minutes.
Nets 120, Pacers 114
Albert King scored 21 points in a relief role as New Jersey snapped a franchise record of IO straight victories established when the team was in the American Basketball Association in 1973.
The Nets who got 18 points and 17 rebounds from Buck Williams and 18 points from Darryl Dawkins, led 69-50 at halftime after a 21-9 spurt in the final five minutes of the second quarter.
The Pacers, who got 24 points and 14 rebounds from rookie Clark Kellogg, cut the deficit to 116-114 with 24 seconds left, but the Nets held on.
76ers 122, Bucks 121
Moses Malone had 30 points and 15 rebounds and
Marc Iavaroni hit two free throws with five seconds remaining to lift Philadelphia past Milwaukee.
The 76ers, who have won nine games in a row, scored the last six points of the game after the Bucks went ahead 121-116 with 1:27 to go. Iavaroni hit two free throws with 50 seconds left and Andrew Toney, who scored 27 points, had a field goal before Iavaroni connected on his game-winning shots.
Junior Bridgeman had 29 points and Sidney Mor.crief 28 for the Bucks.
Celtics 139, Warriors 117
Guards Danny Ainge and Quinn Buckner scored IO points apiece to lead Boston in its 39-point third quarter against Golden State.
Robert Parish led Boston w ith 33 points, but it was Ainge, who shot 9-for-12 from the field and had 20 points, and Buckner, who was 8-for-12 for 16 points, who sparked the Celtics in the pivotal third period. After Golden State tied the score 68-68 with the first basket of the second half, Boston finished the quarter with a 107-86 lead.
Joe Barry Carroll led Golden State with 37 points, while Purvis Short and Ron Brewer added 28 apiece for the Warriors.
Nuggets 126, Jazz 118
Kiki Vandeweghe scored 30 points and Alex English 29 and Denver hit 17 of 18 shots en route to a 43-point third quarter against Utah.
The Nuggets led 104-81 after the third-period explosion and coasted to its eighth victory in their las! 12 games.
Bulls 98. Cavaliers 96
Reggie Theus, who didn't start for Chicago for the first time in 354 games, scored 16 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, when the Bulls outscored Cleveland 29-22 to win for only the second time in nine outings.
Chicago Coach Paul Westhead's decision not to start Theus ended the longest streak by an active player in the NBA.Sports shorts

Dorsett looking for record-setting football,
DALLAS (AP) - Wanted: One regulation NFL football used on 99-yard trip. Reward: $200.
Contact: Tony Dorsett.
Dorsett’s record for the longest run in National Football league history can only be tied, never broken.
The Dallas Cowboys’ running back has sent his shoes to the Professional Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, but the ball is missing.
Dorsett said he wished he hadn’t spiked the ball after his run two weeks ago against the Minnesota Vikings.
“I was so caught up in the game I didn’t even realize it was a record," Dorsett said. “I was just out there
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Green Bay Packer offensive tackle Tim Stokes says an upcoming matchup against Dallas Cowboys’ defensive end Harvey Martin won’t be anything new for him.
"Harvey and I broke into the league the same year," Stokes, a nine-year veteran, said when questioned about the challenge in the teams’ National Football Conference playoff game at Dallas Sunday. “In fact, the first NFL scrimmage I ever played in was against Harvey Martin.
“Dallas was training at Thousand Oaks (Calif ), and I was with the
running for my life. If I had known it was a record, I would have kept the ball."
Asked if he would give a $100
reward to get the ball, Dorsett said, “I’d give $200. I’ve never seen that ball again.
‘I’ve received a lot of
congratulations,” he said. “I guess that’s what they’ll remember me for. It’s a record that can be tied but never broken.”
He said he’d still trade the record run for something else, though.
“Years from now I’ll take a lot of
pride in that run. It was an NFL
milestone,” he said. “I’d trade it right
Rams. I guess I’ve played against him at least IO times.”
Stokes, who replaced the injured Karl Swanke in the Packer starting lineup two games ago, said the 6-foot-5, 260-pound Martin has “stood the test of time,” either leading or sharing the team lead in sacks since he joined the Cow boys back in 1973.
“Defensive linemen usually don’t last that long,” Stokes said. “I’ve watched him this year, and I think he’s playing as well as he’s ever played.”
Stokes’ recent performance has also won praise. Last weekend, he and
now’ to make the winning touchdown run in this year’s Super Bowl.”
Dorsett said the Green Bay Packers presented some difficult running problems in Sunday’s National Conference second-round p' *voff game.
“The Packers are tough, very active with a lot of stunts and blitzes," Dorsett said. “They have a tendency to make you look bad at times. I just hope we can catch them just right on some of the blitzes and break one.”
The winner of the 3 p.m. game meets the survivor of the Minnesota-Washmgton contest for the National Conference title and a ticket to the
the rest of the offensive line got the credit for helping the Packers to a 41-16 first-round playoff victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Packer quarterback Lynn Dickey passed for 260 yards and four touchdowns in that one. The Cardinals failed to sack the Green Bay quarterback in the entire game.
“I’m glad to see our offensive line getting a little bit more recognition,” Stokes said. “I think we’ve got a good offensive line. I think (center) Larry McCarren obviously is an all-pro, and I think Greg Koch is as good a right tackle as I’ve seen play.”playoff wins
Super Bow l.
The Cowboys announced that the game is a sellout and will be seen locally on television.
Strong safety Benny Barnes said Dallas, rated a touchdown favorite, will have to put a lot of pressure on Packer quarterback Lynn Dickey or it could be a long day for the Cowboys’ secondary.
“They have receivers who can really get deep on you,” Barnes said. “If he has time to get the ball downfield to them we could be in trouble. Everything depends on what kind of rush we get on Dickey.”
Stokes admitted the Packer line has had injury problems, “but at least we’ve got enough depth to cover up.” The Packers Wednesday listed their top two left guards on their injury report. Tim Huffman, who started against the Cardinals, was listed as probable for the Dallas game, although bothered by a back injury.
Derrell Gofourth, sidelined for the St. Louis game, was listed as doubtful because of knee problems.
Green Bay Coach Bart Starr said Huffman would start against the Cowboys, and Gofourth hopefully would be available as a reserve.'C' Division Stars still shining in '83

Give some credit to NBC and CBS on last weekend’s National Football League playoff games They tried.
Because of the expanded 16-team playoff format that came out of the 57-day players’ strike, the networks televised playoff games regionally rather than nationally And because the NFL decreed that CBS and NBC not go head-to-head, it was left to the networks to decide w hat game a given area would see.
The networks were also faced with having to televise playoff games with teams of less than playoff caliber, what with the likes of Detroit, St. l/mis, New England and Cleveland flickering briefly on the screen.
Or, as Bob Costas said during the Miami-New England game: “They call it the Super Bowl tournament. Considering the shortened season and the losing teams involved, some cynics have dubbed it the pseudobowl tournament.’”
On Sunday, CBS tried to get around that by showing Dallas-Tampa Bay to 90 percent of the country. America’s team, you know, though Minnesota-Atlanta turned out to be one of the more competitive games.
Some problems were within the networks’ control.
On Saturday, for example, at the end of the first half in Miami, NBC switched to the I/is Angeles Raiders-Cleveland game. With nine seconds left in the half, and the Raiders ready
has been a student of karate since 1977. w hen he was in the fourth grade.
To acheive black belt, Soto must fight 20 opponents one after the other. “He is not required to defeat them," said Lopez, “only to withstand the punishment and still be standing at the end of 20 rounds.”
The public is invited to attend. Tickets prices are: $2 for adults and $1 for children ll and under.Bartels takes first in November bass tourney
Bobby Bartels took first place at the .McQueeney Ra«s Club’s November tournament, followed by Robert Aitwein, George Eller, Steve Meurin and Barry Jaroszewski. it was the final tourney for 1982. but vear-end results are not yet available.
The January tournament will be a road-runner, held on the 29th and 30th. There will be only one weigh-in. at Barry 's Drive-Inn in New Braunfels. on the 30th at 12 noon There w ill be a ten fish limit, and fishing times are set at Saturday daylight through Sunday noon with a 45-minute grace period.
to try a field goal, it cut away during a timeout and stayed away.
As a result, New England-Miami viewers saw a taped field goal instead of a live one On Sunday, the networks stuck mostly to scoring highlights as inserts, which was probably for the best Why cut away live to show a 4-yard run?
The coverage itself was generally of play off caliber On New England-Miami, Bob Trumpy noted well Don Shula’s exploitation of New England’s weaknesses, particularly the unfortunate trouble of substitute defensive end George Crump Neither Trumpy nor Costas hesitated to call a dog a dog, although they’d have had more room if Bob Gnese hadn’t been in the booth The low light occurred at halftime of the Washinglon-Detroit game, when actor James Brolin appeared next to Dick Stockton to promote a movie to be shown that night on CBS. CBS also had about-to-resign Philadelphia Eagle Coach Dick Vermeil sitting with Brent Musburger.
During one highlights package, Musburger praised Vermeil for his “perceptive comments,’’ then showed a tape of Neil Lomax being sacked.
“Here’s a sack,” said Vermeil, who says he wants to work in television. “Of course that’s a big play ”
Now we see Ottis Anderson being taken off the premises with an icepack on his ankle.
“It looks,” said Vermeil, “like he hurt his ankle.”StandingsNCAA
