A SON of Depression-era Oklahoma, Darrell Royal came to Texas to take over a sleeping giant of a football program. Over 20 years, his folksy approach to sports and life, his inventive wishbone offense and a victory in the "Game of the Century" - where a U.S. president declared his team national champion - made him an icon of college football. Royal, who won two national championships and turned the Longhorns' program into a national power, died early Wednesday at age 88 of complications from cardiovascular disease, school spokesman Bill Little said.
