CNN/SI - Vince Young story

Short version: Vince and some of the seniors were in favor of the Longhorns wearing black jerseys next season. Coach Brown said "no, not ever". This led to an anecdote from the SID about UT legend Darrell Royal putting an end to the black accents that Reebok added to some of the UT sportswear in the 90's (not the uni's, just the sportswear).

Much like Dean Smith at UNC, Darrell Royal basically has to give approval on these sorts of things.

I'll bet they'll give in to Vince if that will keep him there for next season.

i wish they would do something with their helmet for the game, like putting a rose behing the longhorn, or like this:

I always thought the rose on the purdue helmet was a cool way to celebrate you made it to the rose bowl. It's tough to make it there (at least for the big 10), so that was a good way to show that. I sure beats the hell out of the ginormous patches michigan uses.

During the Big twelve championship game (if you'll call it a game), someone had a poster with the rose in the longhorns mouth. it looked pretty cool.

boiler up!

When did Vince Young get the right to call the shots? Until this year, the Horns couldn't overcome Oklahoma. This guy doesn't walk on water, and I still don't see a national title in Young's resume.

Besides, Mack Brown has been the best college football recruiter going back to when he built a Top 10 program at a basketball school in a basketball conference. He'll do just fine without Vince, black jerseys be damned.

Vince can take what he wants and cram it. Darrell Royal, Mack Brown and the other adults realize that burnt orange works just fine as it is, and black didn't pan out so well for the basketball team, now did it. :evil:

Mack Brown is a damn good recuirter but head football coach i would have to disagree. His record against top 25 schools speaks for its self

Look closely at my post. I never said he could coach, and his record in the big games is sad. All I said is he can recruit with anyone, so the next Vince Young is out there and likely within his reach. The Horns don't need Vince Young, and I'd hate to think they'd sell out and wear black just because he thinks he's earned the right to make them do it.

my bad. until this year none of the Qb's that M.B. has gotten have been worth their weight in salt.
