everyone graduates with a coaching degree.
All the pressure I ever had was self-imposed. I never had any pressure put on me to win. I felt that way in my off-years.
I was contacted a couple of times. But I didn't go for the interview (either time).
How's that song go? 'Things they are a-changing.' But they weren't changing that quickly around here at the time.
The good news is there's 17 million people who care about Texas football. The bad news is there's 17 million people who care about Texas football.
I'm really proud of Mack.
Earl blocked a punt the one time I put him on that unit, and then I took him off.
I thought it was a great pep talk. I wanted to hug him.
I'm happy for Mack. No one can talk about him not winning a conference title anymore. And hopefully we'll be able to stop talking about how Texas hasn't won a national title since way back when.
I hope so, and I know Coach Brown hopes so.
I never thought (the criticism) was fair. He's taken care of every step except one, and I sure hope he'll get it.
We were so elated about winning the big game, and to have the President of the United States (Richard Nixon) come into your locker room ? if you're not impressed with that, hoss, you just can't be impressed.
Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.
Punt returns will kill you quicker than a minnow can swim a dipper.
Sometimes you have to suck it up and call a number.
The only thing that would change would be the year, the names. It just got to be a repetitious life.
Three things can happen when you pass and two of 'em are bad.
You know, a football coach is nothing more than a teacher. You teach them the same subject, and you have a group of new guys every year.
Football doesn't build character. It eliminates the weak ones.
For me, it is just the total experience - from the time I first started as an assistant coach until I wound up at the University of Texas for 20 years.
He's not very fast, but maybe Elizabeth Taylor can't sing.
I didn't want to stay until I had used up all the enjoyment because that's too long to stay anywhere.
I don't count on the boy who waits till October, when it's cool and fun, then decides he wants to play.
I had hoped God would be neutral.
I knew that when I resigned from the University of Texas that I would never coach again.
