Taking a decade-by-decade approach to the University of Texas football tradition, this collection brings together over 40 stories from the most outstanding voices of the program. The spirit of Longhorn football is not captured by just one phrase, one season, or one particular game; instead, the student-athletes and coaches who made the magic happen over the decades blend their experiences to capture the true essence of their beloved school. Texas fans will relish the intimate stories told by the figures they have come to cherish.
