Quotes

Narrator: There was a war in Vietnam; there was a man on the moon; folk songs and flower children. Yeah, the country had its differences, but we had one thing in common - we needed heroes.

Simply awesome!
5 March 2003 | by blahblahSee all my reviews

You know they've made a great Texas film when OU fans start a campaign to give it low ratings! This is a must see! Matthew McConaughey is awesome...a very pleasant surprise. Willie Nelson is the incomparable Willie Nelson. And the rest of the cast is a who's who of Texas football fans and personalities. The story itself is a great rags to riches one. Very inspirational and emotional. Definitely worth the hour I spent watching it. Royal had a very special way of leading his teams to three National Championships that combined his unique sound-bytes and a fatherly demeanor. As the film says, he led in a time when we needed heroes, and Texas fans surely found one in Darrell Royal. I highly recommend for any sports fan as well.
