Well, since the BootLegger's Boy moved on, OU has become a little bit more tame (and a clean program, at least on the surface)......must not be spikin' the gatorade with Switzer's moonshine anymore.

Pretty sad that he wasn't mature enough to deal with that jerk Titans coach. He should've stayed at UT to win another MNC and the Heisman.

Having said that, Young is a winner on the field and is certainly a lot better than some of those do-nothings who are on a few rosters in the NFL.

He's a textbook case for young players on how NOT to manage their newfound millions. (don't trust your preacher or family members to handle that kind of money).

I wish him luck, because he could still win some games.

Is VY considered a head case? If not, he could make it with the right team and the right coach. It amazes me when some players are labeled busts even though it was probably more about an incorrect fit.

As far as being a "head case", I think that is undeserved. He had a maturity problem, that's a no brainer.

But he's a winner as his record at Tennessee showed, and is certainly a lot better than most of the current NFL backups and a number of the starters.

But unfortunately it's tough to overcome established perceptions.

It'll be something of a miracle if he gets picked up by an NFL team.

Saw that on a Longhorn board the other day, but it was pointed out that Bradford messed up - he forgot he was in the Southern Hemisphere so he's actually doing the Horns Up from our geographic perspective.

I agree that VY is not a head case. But I think he still has a maturity problem and he will soon be 30 years old.

I think it hurts him the way Mack Brown acts like a cheerleader for him. It appears desperate. And Vince should do everything he can to stand on his own. No more hand holding.

The NFL seems to want dual threat QBs. VY should get an opportunity somewhere. If he does it could be his make/break last chance to earn some cred.
