Legendary Texas coach and offensive mastermind Darrel Royal passed away earlier this week, and Texas made preparations to honor his life and impact on the program. They will wear these helmets with “DKR” right in the center for the rest of the year—a wonderful gesture—and that’s not all.
In the team’s game against Iowa State, Mack Brown said they would run their first play out of the wishbone (a Royal staple), and they did just that. Oh, did they ever.
They added some supreme trickery into this equation as well which resulted in a 47-yard gain. Very cool gesture by the Longhorns here, and perhaps this would be a solid, permanent wrinkle.
