    Memorial Stadium in the year of opening 1924..........State Capitol visible in background..........doesnt identify what game it was. According to wiki schedule they played 2 games at the new stadium...........a loss to Baylor 28-10 on Nov 8th and a season ending win over the Ags 7-0 on Turkey Day Nov 27th so its one of those 2 games.

    The funny thing is that the building on the left was still there in the 90’s when I was in campus. Not sure if it survived the development in the area since then.

    Think that building and others around it were razed when they built that large hotel / conference center on that corner.

    The old buildings/houses on that street were from the 1930’s and some sort of student center for a church or maybe Scientology or Asian students. Something out of mainstream if I recall. One might have been used for housing.

    The northeast corner of University & 19th is a church with multiple fancy glass windows, all of which are expensive to replace, The concussion from the first shot from the Kappa Sigs cannon on Texas Independence Day, 1969 took out (IIRC) 14-16 of them.

    The northwest corner of University and 19th, is the AT&T hotel/convention center, owned by The University.

    That's some prime real estate along University between 19th/MLK and 21st/Littlefield fountain.

    On the East/right side (looking North) is the University Avenue Church of Christ, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Alpha Phi, and the University Christian Church. On the West/left side (looking North) is the (relatively new) AT&T hotel/convention center, a parking lot, and the University Catholic Center. I suspect that little parking lot will have a limited lifespan from this point on before something is built upon it. There is a multi-deck parking garage just to the West of it.

    That IS prime real estate in that area.

    Used to date a Fort Worth Kappa Kappa Gamma at that house on University.

    Kappa Sigma had a fine looking house almost looking straight down University toward the tower for many, many years. Kappa Sig was one of first fraternities at UT. US Senator John Tower was a member IIRC.

    The fraternity sold the house sometime in the mid 70's and built a house West of campus. The old house at 19th and University was later torn down. I have parked on that vacant lot for many games over the years.

    Ancient memories....

    When I was at UT, everytime you crossed the drag to the Co-op, the Scientologist and Hare krishnas were all over the place recruiting victims.

    DKR & Landry we know about. Gordon Wood - Brownwood HS is a legend in Texas HS football !!

    So, why the hell is Grunt Teaff in that photo of Texas greats?

    Was he owed a favor, in town with purpose or paid for dinner or something else? :idk:

    Worster,

    The referee either owned the camera, was taking the photo, or both.

    Louisiana,

    Are you old enough to remember the 1975 Bluebonnet Bowl?

    We were getting killed by Colorado, a team loaded with NFL players including THREE TEs. They were so good that Hasselbeck was NOT a starter.

    Earl kept bugging DKR to let him play defense. Finally DKR let Earl in on special teams. I think between Earl and his brother Tim, they blocked 4-5 kicks in second half and turned the game around. Press wanted to vote defensive MVP, but he was already offensive MVP.

    Yes I certainly do remember that game Saber, I was 19...:yes:........all the recruiting buzz I remember was he was as highly regarded coming of JTyler as a LB as he was for his running ability.

    IIRC, Corky had him playing mostly defense until his senior year.

    I don’t know if the above photo is real, but I’m uncertain why “heavy metal” is claiming this. This appears to be a central Texas house with limestone siding, live oaks, sago palms, and St Augustine grass. Obviously a hook’em.
