6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Charis Weiss on September 3, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I own a dozen or so books about Longhorn football, but this one's my favorite. From the gorgeous photos to the insightful text, this book covers UT football history better than the others. One difference is in the large, coffee-table-sized format. Another is the unmistakable feeling that Hawthorne's "one of us." He's not afraid to use first person pronouns when talking about the Horns, and his commentary nicely captures the feelings of us orange-blooded fans (e.g., the teams we consider rivals). Thanks, Bobby, for this excellent addition to my Longhorn library!

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Richard Hill on August 23, 2007
Format: Hardcover
If you LOVE football as much as I LOVE football, you absolutely must purchase LONGHORN FOOTBALL by up and coming author, Bobby Hawthorne. Hawthorne has gleaned the very best from over 113 years of outstanding Longhorn photography to create a dynamic picture that seems to come to life in your very hands. His insightful commentary only adds to the overall enjoyment of the book. I just couldn't put it down once I opened the book. I could almost hear the crackle of helmets on crisp fall afternoons as I reminisced over many of the best loved players, coaches and fans of the last 100 plus years. In short, this is the book that Darrell Royal would have wanted to be written about the greatest game in the greatest state in the union. Rick Hill

Format: Hardcover
Longhorn Football: An Illustrated History is a pictorial collection of a proud, rich program. Bobby Hawthorne does an outstanding job blending his eloquent prose with some never-seen-before photos of UT football. This is a must for anyone who believes in burnt orange sunsets and lives for autumn Saturday afternoons at Darrell K. Royal Texas Memorial Stadium. Hook Em' Horns!
