The Royal Legacy

WE all hold DKR in the highest regard, however sandwiched between those 1963 and 1969 National championships was an era called "The Interregnum". This consisted of the 1965, 1966, and 1967 seasons. Which, if my memory is correct were 6-4, 7-4, and 6-4. Unbelievably horrible seasons when you consider the 11-0 seasons of 63 and 69
as bookends.
We were not in the information age during this time frame, so nobody really new why we slipped into these mediocre performances. Today we know everything about the coaches, players, recruits and everybody else associated with the program and are allowed to speculate and vent when things go wrong....which is a good thing, to a point.

It's great to support the horns and vent our frustrations....and most assuredly, the criticism on this fabulous site are very astute, but remember this, The University of Texas is a quality institution and always will be. You're never going to see a Barry Switzer type coach at Texas. Never.

Our coaches may allow players to underperform at times, or may not have the fastest adjustments and schemes as appear to be needed, but Texas is a proud school who will always run a quality program and we will win our share of championships.
