    Having been to NYC a couple times over the last three years, it's odd to see older movies with the towers in it.

    I'm jumping the gun by a couple but on Sept 21, 1968 the Horns played Cougar High and was the battle of Bill Yeomans Veer vs the new fangled Y formation (there is still some debate on when it became the Wishbone). The bone would struggle till Slick Street was installed at QB and the rest is history...........good write up in the Chronicle about that game.

    50 years later: Texas vs. Houston, the wishbone, integration and a tie that binds
