darrell royal took over at texas in 1957, a year after i was born in electra, texas...my dad, frank emrich, told me it was about that time he became a longhorns fan...my dad followed coach royal as a player in the big 6 at oklahoma, so it made sense for him to follow royal's career in austin...together, we watched the texas-ole miss bluebonnet bowl in the mid 1960's and the consecutive cotton bowls against tennessee, and notre dame twice...and of course, my dad and i watched the 1969 texas win over arkansas in fatyetteville...my dad always spoke glowingly of coach royal and it was thrill for me to actually meet him on the street while parking for a home game at memorial stadium while i covered the state capitol for the texas state network...it never made sense to my friends in new orleans that i grew up a texas fan, but i owe it to my dad and his love for coach royal...
