Illustrations of the championship football team in all its glory! Longhorn Football traces the team's history from its origins in 1893 through the 2006 Rose Bowl, in which Texas won its fourth national championship. The heroes of the last 113 seasons include Dana X. Bible, Bobby Layne, Tommy Nobis, Roosevelt Leaks, Heisman trophy winners Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams, Vince Young, and, of course, Darrell K. Royal.
In a voice that is equally reverential and iconoclastic, Hawthorne also details the off-the-field traditions--Bevo, Big Bertha, "The Eyes of Texas," and the "Hook 'em Horns" sign, among others--that make Longhorn football more than just a game. He delves into what makes the rivalries with Oklahoma and Texas A&M so intense and nominates a group of all-time Longhorn greats at every position. In short, Longhorn Football chronicles the team that has become a religion "worthy of the great state of Texas."
