When someone asked Darrell Royal if Texas would ever change their jerseys, he delivered a classic Royalism:

“Hell, no, I’m not going to candy this thing up. These are work clothes.”

Well, Oregon “candy” ups their uniforms on a weekly basis. and now ESPN is wondering what would happen if Texas follow suit, after all Texas and Oregon are both Nike-endorsed teams.

Royal wouldn’t be happy with these mythical jerseys. Here’s a screen shot:

So yeah. The pants look like a cow hide, err, bull hide. However, the helmet with the bull horns look sort of cool.

Here are some more looks at the Bevo-tinged get-up:

And what’s up with the Hook ‘Em Horns on the back of the jersey?

And how about a non-Longhorn helmet with the state of Texas?
