Longhorn History in Tournament Play

     The History of Longhorn  Men's Basketball (the early years)

1906-1941

Most of the coaches in the early years are hired primarily to coach football first and basketball second. Basketball coaches receive no pay.

Games in the early years are low scoring because there is a jump ball for possession after each score. 

There is no official recruiting system. Many of the players came from the UT intramural system or just show up on campus to try out for the team. 

The players do not receive scholarships. Instead, UT helps the players procure part time jobs to pay for room and board.

Recruiting athletes instead of selecting athletes after try outs has profound impact on college sports. This is one of the first years that there is a  competitive struggle between universities for the "services" of a high school athlete. 

Gray thinks recruiting is a disgusting degrading process, and it is one of the major reasons he quits in 1951.

Lou Maysel of the Austin Statesman said "The University of Texas has a full-fledged crisis on its hands in the form of the howling rabble that turns out for basketball games .......It's a Roman holiday for that element of the UT  enrollment that has not completely bridged the Darwinian evolution from the primitive ape to civilized man."

1959-1967 Coach Harold Bradley

Harold Bradley was rebuffed by  African American basketball players. Twice Coach Bradley thought that he had crossed the race barrier but he failed. James Cash was his best chance to recruit a black athlete. To show his commitment to Cash he visited the Austin City Council and exhorted the  human rights commission to show that Texas was striving to improve race relations. Cash chose TCU over Texas.  Coach Bradley also was so convinced that Lew Alcindor was going to attend Texas he had a preliminary press released written.  With a sense of understanding Bill Little said of Coach Bradley's plight "there were legitimate concerns on how do you integrate when you've had nothing that is an example of it."

Lou Maysel from the Austin American Statesman called Bradley " a cage magician...{who has} transformed a dozen bumpkins into impressive-looking chargers who look like they might run away with the SWC."

Bad sportsmanship  reaches its peak. After Texas beats A & M in Austin, Longhorn fans taunt the Aggies and  hand to hand combat ensues.   Doctors are called to treat the wounded.  The administration from  both universities  considers changing future games to a neutral site.
