Vince Young on the cover of ESPN the Magazine…the Longhorns only hope to retain him.

Pretty good article and a cover for Vince Young in last week’s (it came Friday) ESPN the Magazine. Definitely a lot of love for his skills with the football and his character on and off the field. Maybe that’s why he had such an un-Vince performance against the Aggies, an “ESPN the Magazine” cover jinx!

The article has some comments on Vince’s fun, confident, and fearless attitude as well as his leadership ability. That’s a great quote. Interesting stuff on Vince’s relationship with his mother, Mack Brown, and Greg Davis and the lack of one with his father. You’ve got to love the passion and emotion Vince seems to have about Texas and his teammates, “Being QB of this team is what God put me on Earth to do.” You can see why the family atmosphere Brown has created would be hard to pass up for so many top high school athletes and their families.

One slightly scary quote though from Vince on his future near the end…

“It depends on the season, then I’ll sit down with my mother. Right now, I’m just playing.”

First time I’ve heard him say anything other than that he was definitively coming back next year. As Longhorn fans, let’s hope he knows he probably needs another year in school to improve his skills, even if it might not change his actual draft slot.

    They had Vince on Fox Sports Southwest last night and they asked him the same question, and he basically responded with the same answer. He is going to finish off the season and then see where everything stands, but right now he is planning on staying.

    He better go pro while he can. Tsips offensive line will never be the same

    You do realize we’re only losing T Jon Scott and G Will Allen, and they’ll be replaced by Tony Hills (former #1 prospect in the state who got tons of playing time this year) and Cedric Dockery (the #2 guard prospect in the nation his senior year).

    Man I really love you Aggies, next year is always your year.

    Travis county the only disgraceful county in the great State of Texas. That County was the only county in the state to vote against the constitutional ammendment that a marriage is between 1 man and 1 woman. That makes me want to throw horse puckey all over Travis County.

    Oh yea, Travis County is the home of University of Texas, the 6th most liberal institution on the country. Didnt big Bertha use to big Bert?? Im sure that makes Bevo proud.

    Wow, get proven incompetent and you pull out the bigotry. Way to represent the Aggies and make yourself look even worse.

    What does that even mean? And you made fun of a drum, OUCH!

    I guess you have a lot of time to post nonsense on the internet since the Aggies season ended last week.

  9. reply to  #9


    OK, you commented on the drum……how about UT and its county……..can you justify any of its liberal crap

  10. reply to  #10


    Seriously dude, you’re embarassing yourself. If you want to comment on sports here go ahead, but try to keep from enforcing the stereotype that all Aggies are prejudiced backwards yokels.

    Or don’t comment at all.

    These are the men that gave you the freedom to call them names…… arent lookin very good here Brian I will quote you “all Aggies are prejudiced backwards yokels”. It’s just like a tu person to have no respect.

    Nearly 20 thousand Aggies served in World War II, 14 thousand as officers, 29 as generals. The entire graduating classes of 1941 and 1942 enlisted in the military.

    # On Corregidor, The Philippines, on San Jacinto Day, April 21, 1942, Major General George F. Moore ‘08 and 25 other Aggies met for the first Aggie Muster while under Japanese bombardment.

    # A number of Aggies participated in the famous Doolittle Raid on Tokyo in April, 1942. Doolittle’s second in command was Major John A. Hilger ‘32.

    “No more convincing testimony could be given to the manner in which the men of Texas A&M lived up to the ideals and principles inculcated in their days on the campus than the simple statement that the Congressional Medal of Honor has been awarded to six former students, that 46 took part in the heroic defense of Bataan and Corregidor, and that nearly 700 are on the list of our battle dead.� –Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1946

    “Give me an army of West Point graduates and I’ll win a battle…
    Give me a handful of Texas Aggies and I’ll win the war.�

    –Gen. George S. Patton, and he graduated form West Point.

    Do you have any positive quotes about A&M from the last 60 years? By the way, I never said Aggies were “prejudiced backwards yokels,” I said your ignorant comments were making Aggies look like prejudiced backwards yokels.

    And that link is about UTSA genius.

    most of the country from this thread can see how we deal with our rival. what in the world is a tsip??? yet a cult in bryan/college station gets brainwashed as freshman. pretty pathetic, since none were around in 1939, the last time aggy won a championship.

    would be nice if they learned how to lose with class, considering every time they face The University, they have a greater chance of losing than winning.

    geez, i have never met a more assinine group of brainwashed fans than the aggies. God help them, they need it.
