It’s no secret that retired basketball player, famed broadcaster and unashamed Deadhead Bill Walton really, really loves tie-dye. So on Saturday at the Frank Erwin Center, it seemed only fitting that Texas head football coach Tom Herman presented Walton with a tie-dyed “Keep Austin Weird” T-shirt at the Longhorns’ game against Kansas.

Walton, who was, of course, already wearing a tie-dye shirt, decided to take the gift a step further and changed into the new shirt on live television.
