Darrell Royal, R. I. P.

ESPN: Darrell K Royal, the former Texas football coach known as much for his folksy, simplistic approach to life as for his creative wishbone offenses and two outright national championships, has died. He was 88.

After my dad got out of the military in the early 50s, he played for Royal at Texas, and they became friends.

Apparently that didn't help my dad get into games, though. The two guys ahead of him on the depth chart were All-Americans.
