Mine is DKR, VY, Earl, and Ricky.
What about you guys?
Those are are the highest impact people and I agree with the order you listed them, too. Too short a list for a very good conversation, IMO. A more interesting list would be the top ten Horns of all time. Top twenty would be even more interesting.

How about Nobis and Street. They deserve some discussion. Street was undefeated as a starting qb and won at least one national championship.

DKR, Mack, Nobis, and Earl
DKR, Earl, Ricky, Bobby Layne, Nobis
VY gets a nearby Crazy Horse if 6 is too many for Rushmore (I know 5 is already too many but you can squeeze one more in)
Surprised to see people leaving Vince out. He's in the discussion as one of the greatest college football players of all time and put UT back on the map after years of mediocrity. I'm not knocking any of the other guys but Vince (and Earl and Ricky) are no brainers.
Not saying I agree or disagree, but seeing this and noting the poster made me chuckle.
Could be - definitely not a popular vote on this board.
However, during my lifetime, I have never seen the program that I love thrive like it has the last 15 years. In character and integrity. In recruiting dominance. In winning football games. In winning National Championship, and playing for them. In my lifetime, Mack is 2nd to none at the University of Texas.

I'll say it again, you have to consider James Street. He was undefeated as a starting qb and won at least one NC. If DKR put Texas on the map, James Street was the driver. Plus, he fathered Huston!
Yeah, I wouldn't argue with DKR, Vince, Earl and James Street.
Here's my bigger and better longhorn Mt Rushmore. DKR, Street, Nobis, Earl, Ricky, Vince, Colt, Mack.
VInce Young, Earl Campbell, Ricky Williams, & Tommy Nobis
Bobby Layne and James Street waiting for expansion to Mt. Rushmore.
Just as interesting is the Mt. Rushmore for DB's.
Johnny Johnson, Raymond Clayborn, Jerry Gray, & Mossy Cade
Like your angle. Here's my qb's - Layne, Street, Young, McCoy
RBs: Earl, Ricky, Priest and leave a spot for JG.
Signatures are stupid. You should block them.
That's why I give him his own Crazy Horse.
Disagree with Mack, but can you imagine his place in Texas lore if he had retired after the 09 NC game?
Hard to argue with that or any of the posts on this thread really.

Just imagine if he can bring us another NC next year, or the year after.
That would make him a lock IMO.
This is probably what he is thinking. Unfortunate for those of us who believe the time is right for a change.
I would imagine that a good number of "those" people thought the same in '03. We are gonna have a pretty good group of players, with a lot of experience, returning next year.
I'm not counting us out next year, or the year after.
Win one, and then turn it over to Major Applewhite. That would make my day
Hard to put Mack on the list. DKR had 3 NC and 11 conference championships.. Mack has 1 NC and 2 conference titles. The difference is huge. It would be like comparing Earl to Tre Newton. Mack is a good coach, but he will not go down as one of the greats in the coaching profession. Given the history and tradition of Texas, I think anyone on the list should be considered one of the greatest at their job.
