118 years of brutally fought football lore and memories was halted in 2011 when UT and Texas A&M stopped playing their annual Thanksgiving brawl.  Lone Star Holy War is the bold look into both sides stories of why this happened.  The tradition still is tough to talk about but click through for our talks with the Director Lindell Singleton, UT Coach Fred Akers, Radio legend Norm Hitzges, & MC and Radio/TV veteran Chris Arnold.

Sit back and enjoy the words of the great Norm! 

From 1977 to 1986 UT was coached by an Arkansas born but Texas adopted man named Fred Akers.  During his tenor the great Yellow Rose of Texas took home the Heisman.  Coach Fred Akers and I had a fun chat about the Lone Star Holy War.

Just talking shop with the fun Chris Arnold.

And finally I had a wonderful sit down interview with Lindell Singleton about this amazing documentary.
