Darrell Royal Honored

The Longhorns honored coaching legend Darrell Royal (coach at Texas 1957-1976, 11 conference titles, 3 national championships) with flags at the stadium (named after him) at half-mast, a DKR inside the mid-field logo, and the same on their helmet logos (which they will wear for the rest of the season), but perhaps most fittingly, they team lined up in the wishbone formation for their first play.  Royal is responsible for introducing that formation to major college football in 1968.  Check out the video here. (and they ran a throw-back pass for 50 yards, sorry Iowa State!)  Most amazing fact after reading his Wikipedia page..he never had a losing season as a coach...anywhere, ever.
