I did not know him personally. But he was the commencement speaker for the graduation of one of my kid's from TTU. He spoke maybe 15 minutes & received a standing ovation. Tremendous message that I have never forgotten.
Sorry to have heard he is no longer on this side but rejoice that he is on heaven's shore.
I knew Ron Bishop; not personally. I watched him preach in chapel a few times.
During Danny Lovett's short tenure, coach bishop preached wearing a Hawaiian style shirt, and said that he always wanted to dress down. Hyper-fundamentalists really killed the spirit there and prevented students from forming long lasting relationships. Coach Bishop elaborated on the dating rule, explaining the oppression of having to pay for a chaperone to sit in the back seat, and etcetera.
