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.
