  1. I enjoyed your remembrances of The Rivalry. I share all of those memories and attended many of those games, beginning in 1958 as an ROTC cadet serving as usher at the Cotton Bowl for SMU and Cowboy games. When Texas and Texas A. And M. came to town I had no idea who they were. I enrolled in A. and M. in 1961 for their good premed program. I still had no idea who they were. The game that is burned in my memory more than any other occurred Thanksgiving 1963. That Tommy Wade pass was intercepted in the North end zone of Kyle Field. Every person present that day saw it, knew it, and thus knew Texas could not have won that game without that corrupt official’s call. That made that “national championship” a hollow joke and it made thousand of people maroon blooded Aggie fans, including me, for life. The support Texas gave us in 1999 after the bonfire tragedy helped a bit but I am not sure what it would take to undo the injustice of 1963. One thing that helps is to see those old ’63 Texas players come out of their caves every few years and parade around celebrating their bogus national championship. They make a ridiculous spectacle. In the next life we will treat them all to the biggest horse laugh ever.

    Thank you for your comments Ron. This is what made that rivalry one of the best in the land.
