    I will guess that QB would have been Ed Hargett...the only reason I knew that is because I had a subscription to Dave Campbell's Texas Football magazine and one of my brother's classmates introduced him to me. which I thought was very cool back then

    Davis McWilliams was the prodigal son coming home, he was the co captain on the '63 National Championship team and hand picked by DKR

    and John Mackovic was the long time offensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys and got the job due in part to Texas alum Tom Landry


    Texas has always made the "safe" hire...I remember when Mack got hired, everyone went WHO, some even thought we hired his brother Watson who was coaching at Rice..Like I mentioned before , image is everything at Texas, they have never had the nads to hire a big time coach because they were afraid of them being bigger than the program itself..plus Texas was known for being frugile (read cheap) when it came to paying coaches..That is why the sudden departure from that mold is due to the fact that Texas has seen that a successful athletic dept can be an asset to the coffers of the school

    They will have to prove to me that they can make the "name" hire...I am skeptical to say the least

    Bon, you'd guess wrong decade - unless John's got the wrong decade. Edd (Double D as I said earlier) Hargett was Bebes Stallings' quarterback in the '68 Cotton Bowl when Bear Bryant, in a great display of sportsmanship that I couldn't get my head around as a kid,



    helped carry the opposing coach Stallings off the field after aTm upset Alabama 20-16. 'Course, the Bear also might've been "fueled up" for giving that victory ride as well...

    I didn't watch much FB or care much about it when I was young - but these things I do remember - at Dakota Wesleyan the kicker Drop Kicked a 63 yarder in an NAIA game, his name escapes me but I could have a police sketcher make a composite of him today - Ordell Braase, who I played HS Basketball against went on to Little AA honors a @ the University of South Dakota, was drafted by the Baltimore Colts & played 15 years @ defensive end opposite the likes of Gino Marchetti & "Big Daddy" Lipscomb. Getting in the playoffs was a near salary doubler.

    Anybody here know what a drop kick is?

    I honestly can't remember his name and have to take it on faith that she was telling me the truth, I have no reason to not believe her. She would have attended T-A&M between 1978 and 82, so who would that be? I remember recognizing his name back when were together 83-89.

    edit; I just googled TAM 1980, it was Gary Kubiak!

    I've gotta buddy that drop kicked a 60 yarder when he was playing for the Detroit Fury in the Arena League. It was only practice though.

    Lordy mercy, Marvin, you really are old enough to have come out with the Baby Jesus for the coin toss!

    What I couldn't find in that list is the name of Bunky Henry, who unless my ears were playing tricks on me, I recall from a radio broadcast as having made the last major college drop-kick for a field goal for Georgia Tech a year or so before he went on to become a decent PGA tour golfer. Not terribly long ago a certain Doug Flutie, just for laughs, teed up a drop-kick for an extra point in what I believe was his last game for the Patriots.

    Alas, RIP today to one of Ordell Braase's college teammates and to one of "my people" - at least he played one on the silver screen, and played football at Marquette to boot. Which means he might've also "run into" another old-timer of renown, the great Buckets Goldenberg.

    I was thinking of someone more in the late 40's - wasn't the ball at that time a little fatter & more rounded on the ends.

    Yup, Heston's acting career wasn't going so well until he did a pair of ape movies that launched him into a superstar. With both as QB's for the early Saints, Heston won the starting job because he had Moses call the Headcoach and owner. Edd was never the same after the demotion and moved on to do voice-overs for a TV show featuring a talking equine.

    Who could ever forget this immortal Heston line, " Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape! "
