I don’t know if what I did was good or bad, taking the Texas A&M team to Junction in 1954. I never will know. It was just the only thing I could have done at the time, knowing what I knew then. I wouldn’t do it now because I know more than I knew then, more about resting players and letting them drink water and more about other ways to lead them. They had to put up with my stupidity. I believe it I had been one of those players, I’d have quit, too.
