We hate having to bring news like this to you guys, but we're sure you'd want to know:

Darrell Royal, the former Texas football coach, has passed away at 88. He was known for his simplistic approach to life and his creative wishbone offenses… and two national championships. Sadly, Royal had suffered from Alzheimer's disease and recently fell at an assisted living center — and we hate that anyone goes like this.

A man who didn't have a single losing season in his 23 years as a head coach at Texas, Mississippi State and Washington, doesn't deserve to go out like that. Alzheimer's is so scary.

We're so sorry for the loss of his friends and family, and wish them all the best.
