Indeed, the above is one of the biggest myths concerning Texas A&M either in or out of ath letics. While Kyle Field has undergone a tremendous expansion since 1971, at no time at any point has it been filled anywhere near capacity on a regular basis. Attendance between the years 1971 and 1986 inclusive has aver aged a pathetic 51,280, which would have filled our home stadium before the initial expansion took place in 1975. Inasmuch as it now holds about 76,000, one can readily see that nei ther A&M students nor its proud alumni have been interested in Filling it each game. What’s the big deal, you say? How many other colleges pack them in all the time, regardless of their team’s record, or the opponent, or the weather, or anything else? Well, for one thing, teams like Ne braska, Michigan, Ohio State, Okla homa, Georgia, and Clemson always play before crowds that exceed their stadiums’ listed capacities. When Texas A&M played Michi gan in 1977, a crowd of 104,802 watched in glee as the Wolverines pounded the Ags 41-3. Yet it was no big deal to them be cause they had a waiting list of about 30,000 fans who yearned to attend the games but couldn’t. However, the main reason it is a big deal to this long-time A&M fan is that my football team deserves to play before sellout crowds too, and yet the very people who say that they follow the team don’t. The years 1971-1986 coincide with A&M’s explosion from a uni versity of about 13,000 students to one of 36,000. Such a tremendous growth of people who either live in or near the Bryan-College Station area should alone have been enough to handle Kyle Field’s expansion, hut it didn’t. The corresponding huge increase in Aggie graduates with the result ing increase in the number of fami lies following the Ags could have also handled it. Even the fact that A&M won two outright Southwest Conference titles plus one tri-championship during these years didn’t fill it up, though it did increase the crowds. As one who attended each and ev ery one of the last 89 games, I can at test to the fact that unless the Unver- sity of Texas was the opponent, the chances of packing the place were slim and none. Games against the Longhorns have provided three of the four crowds here that have exceeded 70,000, having the top two crowds of 77,607 and 76,751 in 1985 and 19i respectively. The Baylor Bears drew an incm ible 74,739 for one of the most esc ing games ever played here (whic A&M won 31-30 after trailing 174 Texas has had four of the top crowds, followed by Baylor wi three, including 69,588 who wt drenched by a cold downpour asii Bears humiliated A&M 46-7 in 19!! The top nonconference drawni Penn State in 1980, as Joe Patera squad defeated A&M 25-9 befo 66,783 fans at the first game all the final expansion had occurred Houston drew 66,569 ih 19' and Texas Tech closed out ihet« 10 with 65,379 in 1980.

Further down the list are SMC 50,554, Rice 46,596, and TCU ai pitiful 43,598. Those numbers belie the Ag! claim that they always stand up 1 their team, since one cannot stanc up for something when he or si isn’t there in the first place. i ■ So Ags, drop the charade thatss" pack the house for Jackie’s boysti ery time they play — or even belie fill it up for both Arkansas an Texas! Excellent season from McDonald crucial to A&M basketball success Texc Clei Oklt Bosl Wat Alai Flor Get Hou Dal Lar Ovt Ma urn By Anthony Wilson Sports Writer Darryl McDonald, Texas A&M’s star guard on this year’s basketball team, is 6-foot-4, 175 pounds and has an Olive Oyl build. His legs are so skinny that A&M Head Coach Shelby,Metcalf once quipped, “Darryl is proof that we don’t use steroids.” But ironically, if the Aggies are to have any chance of having a re spectable season, it will have to be McDonald who carries the team on his back. “Of course Darryl’s going to have to have a big season,” Met calf said. “But, we’ve got to figure that’s not a variable, but a con stant. We’re just figuring on him having a big year.” Last season the Aggies finished the season with a 17-14 record. They were 6-10 in the Southwest Conference, finishing eighth in a nine team conference. But they became the first eighth place team ever to win the SWC Classic by beating TCU, Texas Tech and Baylor, earning them an auto matic bid to the NCAA Tourna ment. They lost to Duke 58-51 in the first round. However, gone from last year’s team are four starters, Winston Crite, Todd Holloway, Mike Clif ford and John Trezvant, who be came academically ineligible after he “had a problem getting to class” when the coaches left town to recruit, Metcalf said. McDonald, the lone returning starter, is predicting another win ning season for A&M despite the personnel losses. “From how we practice and play, I think we’re going to be good,” the senior said. “We’ve got some good players who play hard and work hard. If we play like we practice, go out and work hard, and do what we have to do, I think we’re going to win a lot of games.” To bolster the other starting positions, Metcalf who is begin ning his 25th year as A&M’s head coach, is looking to two transfers, one redshirt and one returning part-time starter. Transfers Doug Dennis and Donald Thompson will man two positions in the front court. Dennis, a 6-foot-8, 235-pound junior, will play center for the Aggies. Thompson, 6-foot-7, 225 pounds will replace Crite at one of the forward positions. “I’m happy with Donald,” Met calf said. “He’s a good player. He’s like Winston. Winston DALL NBA M open the Friday ni Reunion John Motta, w Dallas fa playoffs; Motta only hea an expat MacL< nearly 1 Suns, isn son like worked hard every day and Don aid works hard every day. Don aid’s jumping is improving. He i jumps well, but he doesn’t jump| with the power Winston did. Bui he’s a little better shooter and passer than Winston.” Redshirt sophomore Jameif McGhee, 6-foot-1, is slated to start at the other guard position alongside his former juco back- court partner McDonald. McG hee and McDonald played to gether for one year at Westchester Community College in New York. The pair visited! A&M together two years ago and! decided to sign with the Aggies McGhee was redshirted last sea son after injurying an ankle. “McGhee plays bigger than he is,” Metcalf said. “He and Mc Donald have good chemistry They play well together. McG hee’s our most improved player this year.” Senior Paul Crawford, who started four games last season, will start at the other forward po sition. The 6-foot-5 Crawford av eraged 4.4 points and 2.2 re bounds per game last season. Although A&M lacks a legiti mate big man in the middle, Met year. “I just the play “That’s c MacLt Phoenix See Aggies, page 10 ‘D-Mack’ steps into familiar role of leader as season approaches By Anthony Wilson Sports Writer For one night, Texas A&M guard Darryl McDonald joined an elite group of basketball play ers who can capture the country’s imagination with a move. Not just any move mind you, but a spec tacular move. An astonishing move. A Cable News Network Play of the Day move. On Jan. 19, in a home game against the University of Hous ton, McDonald made a move that won’t soon be forgotten. McDon ald drove to the left side of the basket, only to find Cougar cen ter Greg Anderson blocking his path. McDonald elevated just as Anderson did, faked a shot, brought the ball down and around Anderson’s body and scooped the ball into the basket. “Cadillac (Anderson) — he’s that type of player who likes to jump and block shots,” McDonald said. “I said, ‘Well once I get him in the air going that way, I’ll just bring it down and put it right back behind him.’ It’s not like it was planned. I just did it.” Later that night, CNN fea tured McDonald’s move as its Play of the Day. “I thought it was great,” Mc Donald said laughing. “I watch CNN every night. I just hap pened to be watching it and the man on TV said, ‘Let’s go down to College Station.’ When he said that I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ “Then he showed me and I just started breakin’. I was happy. I ain’t ever been that happy. And it came on at one o’clock (a.m.) again and I caught it. Then it came on at four and I watched it again. That made me feel real good.” McDonald, a senior point guard, transferred last season from Westchester Community College in New York. His path from the playgrounds of Harlem to Texas A&M has been an un usual one. McDonald dropped out of high school in the ninth grade and never played high school ball. He earned his GED four years later. At that time he was playing basketball on play grounds and in summer tourna ments with collegiate players when someone took notice of his considerable talents. “I was handling myself and somebody saw that and asked me if I went to school and I said ‘No,’ ” McDonald said. “Then he asked me if I wanted to go back to school. I said, ‘Yeah, why not?’ ” McDonald earned junior col lege All-America honors his sec ond year after averaging 18 points and seven rebounds per game. His team went 61-9 during his stay at Westchester. W’hen it came time to sign with a major college, McDonald was eager to leave New York City. “They (A&M coaches) brought me and (teammate) James McG hee down for a visit,” he said. “They showed me a good time and I liked it here. And I wanted to get out of New York. There’s a lot of stuff like drugs and mur ders happening and I don’t par ticularly like to be around that stuff. I can deal with this. I like it here. “I like the city. I’ve been there all my life and grew up there. But, when I was in junior college, I said to myself, ‘If I get a chance to go away, I’m leavin'.” Last season, McDonald aver aged 8.8 points and 3.4 assists per game. He set the SWC season re cord for steals with 44 and school records for steals in a season, with 83, and in a game, with nine. He was named to the All-Tourna ment team in the SWC Classic af ter averaging 19.3 points per game and, with Winston Crite, led the Aggies to the championship. Along the way, McDonald earned the reputation of being the conference’s most exciting player. “He’s the flashiest player we’ve had since I’ve been here,” A&M Head Coach Shelby Metcalf said “He sees the floor better than any player who’s been in the South west Conference since 1958. He's really something special. “When he first came down here, he wasn’t under control You don’t want him totally under control because you don’t want to kill that and take his individual fi- See McDonald, page 10
