I try not to make the same mistakes today that I made yesterday.
– Darrell Royal
I was in a profession that received a lot of media.
Football doesn’t build character. It eliminates the weak ones.
If I were going to stay in coaching, I would have stayed right there because I was totally happy.
All the white meat is gone. There’s nothin’ but necks on the platter.
You know, a football coach is nothing more than a teacher. You teach them the same subject, and you have a group of new guys every year.
I know that the odds are against a marriage lasting 60 years.
When I was a freshman at Oklahoma in 1946, the game was sold out – and it’s been sold out ever since.
For me, it is just the total experience – from the time I first started as an assistant coach until I wound up at the University of Texas for 20 years.
I really don’t have a favorite course. I usually ask where there are the least players.
I was still enjoying coaching, but there was a repetitious manner about it.
I move around and play different golf courses. I just enjoy it.
If everything had already been done, there would be nothing left for young people to accomplish. There are always going to be people who run faster, jump higher, dive deeper, and come up drier.
But I do have time to pencil in golf, and we’ve got four excellent courses.
I do not let a bad score ruin my enjoyment for golf.
I try not to play two days in succession. I usually try to space it so I have a day in between.
You’ve got to think lucky. If you fall into a mudhole, check your back pocket – you might have caught a fish.
I have found that the players who have played in that game really do have respect for their adversaries.
I used to care more about the score than I do now.
The only thing that would change would be the year, the names. It just got to be a repetitious life.
I never have planned a whole lot of future. It’s one day at a time.
I’m still healthy as can be.
I knew that when I resigned from the University of Texas that I would never coach again.
I’m not bored; I’m not a guy who has nothing to do.
I didn’t want to stay until I had used up all the enjoyment because that’s too long to stay anywhere.
I learned this about coaching: You don’t have to explain victory and you can’t explain defeat.
