"Ready"?

What/who do you think DKR was?

My brother was the treasurer for one of the UT booster clubs in the '70s when he was the Athletic Director. He got wind of their proposed plan to buy an old used car for a poor athlete who was in need of transportation. Royal called all the booster club officers into his office and told them if he heard one more thing about them buying even a bicycle for the kid, he would ban them from all athletic events and the entire campus.

He would play golf with them, but kiss butt? Hardly.

I suspect Coach Strong is the same kind of man.

Point taken.... plus Willie Nelson was probably more fun to hang out with than a bunch of rich stuffed shirts.
