There will be a public memorial next Tuesday around noon at the Erwin Center.
The Tower will be lit orange tonight.
His statue that sits just inside the gates at the southeast corner of the stadium will be open to the public to be able to pat tribute in that manner tonight and Thursday night until 11 p.m. and Friday night until 6 p.m.
Also, in case you missed it, the Longhorns will wear a helmet decal honoring Coach Royal this weekend. Also, the Longhorns' first play of the game against Iowa State will be from the wishbone formation.
Will there be any dry eyes in the house if Gray breaks it for a touchdown? Either way it should be an amazing moment.
I love the idea of opening up in the wishbone........I hate the fact that were divulging it publicly.
Id love the see us wear the 05' throw backs on thanksgiving as well.
It don't make a _hit.
The point is to honor DKR, not surprise Iowa State with formation
I suppose doing both is an impossibility?
Great idea to open on offense in the wishbone ... practice that play, practice that play!
everyone knew we were running the wishbone in 1969
Hayden Christensen - to merely call him wooden is an affront to puppets everywhere...
Yeah, one of the lineman could've told the defense, "Wooster's getting the ball and here's the hole he will hit."
"I've heard some of our fans say, 'We were always an SEC school. We just didn't know it," athletic director Bill Byrne said.

Glad we are doing the right things and honoring our coach. Too bad most will miss the game since it is on LHN.
Wishbone is a formation . . . not a play. DKR ran about 20 different plays out of the formation and every single team we played knew that we were going to be lining up in the wishbone to start the game.
It doesn't really give anything away.
Some may be disappointed, but starting the game lining up in the wishbone does not necessarily Gray, Brown and Burgeron in the game at the same time. In fact, I think that is unlikely. It also doesn't mean we will run the triple option, which I think is highly unlikely.
Now whether or not we run a play out of the bone or just do it symbolically and call time out depends on which choice Brown thinks will honor Royal more; not how many yards can we get on it.
Interesting question of the day . . . if we win the toss, do we elect to receive so we can start the game off (v. our first possession some time later) in the wishbone?
I have a dumb question...
Is it tough to line up and execute the wishbone? Last thing we need is to try to pull something that these guys have never done before or have to spend a lot of practice time for this play. If we screw it up, it's not gonna be a good thing on so many levels.
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
Let's line up in the bone and run: right 53 veer pass. :)

I told you to call in and come over!
Don't worry. It will be play action to Davis over the top.
