Show synopsis From Texas's first bowl-game appearance on New Year's Day 1943 in Dallas to its amazing 38-37 comback win over Michigan in the 2005 Rose Bowl, the lore of Longhorn football has been matched by few other schools over the past 50 years. In the updated edition of Steve Richardson's TALES FROM THE TEXAS LONGHORNS, which quickly sold out of its first edition two years ago, fans can read fascinating anecdotes and stories about the program's football legends, while exploring the careers and unique styles of UT coaches Darrell Royal, Dana Bible, and Mac Brown. Also included in this updated edition is a new chapter detailing the magnificent 2004 season and the breathtaking performance of quarterback Vince Young in the Rose Bown. Young accounted for all five Longhorn touchdowns while compiling 192 rushing yards (including touchdown runs of 20, 60, 10, and 23 yards!) and 180 passing yards, one of the greatest single-game performances in Texas football history.
