Horns! A History: The Story of Longhorns Football

Overview

Throughout its long and illustrious history, the University of Texas and its fans have always demanded excellence from its football team. Whether it's a by-product of the state's being the only one that was once a sovereign nation, or the riches in oil that gave the state schools a tremendous bankroll, or the larger-than-life attitude that Texans exhibit, the Longhorns have always been expected to win. And win big. Horns! captures these grand visions and expectations, from the day in 1893 when a group of fifteen ...

Overview

Throughout its long and illustrious history, the University of Texas and its fans have always demanded excellence from its football team. Whether it's a by-product of the state's being the only one that was once a sovereign nation, or the riches in oil that gave the state schools a tremendous bankroll, or the larger-than-life attitude that Texans exhibit, the Longhorns have always been expected to win. And win big. Horns! captures these grand visions and expectations, from the day in 1893 when a group of fifteen or so neophytes boarded a train to Dallas for the school's first official game to the stunning come-from-behind 2006 Rose Bowl victory over USC -- a team some thought the best of all time -- that gave UT's long-suffering fans a fourth national title.

Horns! tells the complete story of Longhorn football, looking at the tireless devotion, the colorful pageantry, and the major moments of a program that claims not only four national titles but also twenty-seven conference championships and two Heisman Trophy winners. Author Mark Wangrin takes a detailed look at this fabled program, hitting the highs and lows, including

  • The stellar teams of the 1930s and the moments that made Texas football lore
  • The triumphs and tragedies of Darrell K. Royal, the coach who won three national titles, and his legacy
  • The muffed punt that cost the Longhorns the 1983 national title
  • The gutsy call that won the 1996 Big 12 Championship

A long look at how coach Mack Brown, who seemed doomed to never again beat Oklahoma, much less win it all, finally triumphed with the help of one of the greatest college players ever, quarterback VinceYoung

With both black-and-white and color photos to help guide the way, Horns! is the definitive history of one of the most storied college football programs in the country and a book no college football fan can live without.

Hook 'em Horns rolls out great moments and near misses in Longhorn history.
