jim brown and KC's Charles

Jim Brown hasn't made it back to Cotton Bowls very often since he played in the 1957 game, when his Syracuse Orangement were beaten by TCU 28-27. He accepted an invitation to return for this AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic because it will be the 75th. Brown was one of 19 members of the Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame attending today's Big Play Luncheon at the Hilton Anatole and will participate in the coin flip before Texas A&M plays LSU on Friday night. Tigers coach Les Miles recognized Mr. Brown in the audience during his address. Miles grew up near Cleveland, idolizing Brown and the Cleveland Browns, and told of going onto the field at Municipal Stadium after one game.I got a chance to touch ya!" Miles said to Brown, seated at a table in the audience near the head table. Do you remember? When Brown nodded, Miles replied, I knew you did Said Brown afterward: It was sort of flattering and funny at the same time. The teams had to leave before the luncheon ended to make their walk-throughs at Cowboys Stadium. On Miles' way out, he detoured through the middle of the crowd to visit with Brown briefly.
