      I grew up across the street from Memorial stadium and watched all the games in the days of Bobby Layne,Tom Landry,Hub Bechtol, and many other post-war greats (Coach Blair Cherry). We, of the knothole gang used to play a sand lot game after it was all over (until Jake ran us out of there). Sometimes the black kids would get up a team to play against us. Now they are with us. How times have changed (for the better)! I was in school at UT when DKR came and am looking forward to the same national success under Coach Strong. I also am a great fan of Mack Brown. I bet UF would love to trade us our"Coach in waiting" for their old DC.

      I believe we have a winner in Coach Strong and look forward to watching the team regain there place on the football field. Good luck to Coach Strong on building a winner and recruiting the best young men in the state. HOOK UM HORNS!
