And finally...

So there you have it. Of all of the things you should remember about him, know that Darrell Royal was always an innovator, who was always searching for new and better ways to win. Somewhere far beyond the skies, Darrell Royal had his feet propped up, was likely sipping a cold beverage and smiling when the entire football world looked in to see Texas in the Wishbone formation for the first time in almost 40 years. And when current quarterback David Ash flipped to wide receiver Jaxon Shipley who threw it back to Ash who passed downfield to tight end Greg Daniels, James Street stood at the front of his suite and watched. He had already told fellow viewers he might not run from the formation when the Longhorns found themselves backed up to the five yard line. Mack Brown and Bryan Harsin and the offensive staff had had the same thought. But the Longhorn players had practiced all week for this moment, so the coaches decided to go ahead and run the play.

"I watched in silence," said Street. "And when the play was over, I said my little prayer to coach. He would have really liked that call. It could not have been a better day." [Texas Sports]
