Texas' Mount Rushmore

By staff

Posted by's Tim Griffin

Something tells me that Bevo is going to be grazing contentedly at my Texas version of Mount Rushmore. "The Eyes of Texas" and "Texas Fight" assuredly will be heard on the breeze.

And four pretty monumental football icons will be there too, at least if the choices of cutting down to the four most noteworthy figures in the school is any indication.

Here are my picks:

That's not to say that Ricky Williams, Tommy Nobis, Scott Appleton, Freddie Steinmark, James Street, Derrick Johnson or even Colt McCoy doesn't deserve consideration on the Longhorns' Rushmore.

But I think my four picks are a little bit above the rest because of their storied success while at Texas.

Any grievous omissions?
