Young Restless November 28, 2006

Posted by Matt in Sports.

It was a dark weekend for Texas Longhorn fans. First the Aggies get off the schneid for the first time since ’99 by coming out and whippin’ us in classic fashion. Then, OU delivers the second blow by taking care of their business and knocking us out of the Big 12 title game. Ouch.

But, one bright light shone. Recent grad Vince Young, playing for the woeful Tennessee Oilers Titans, only went out and delivered the biggest come back ever by a rookie in the NFL. Beat a guy named Manning (ok, the other Manning, but still!) and beat the record held by some guy named Elway.

“The final minutes felt like a flashback to the national championship game last January when Young led his Texas Longhorns past Southern California. It’s the biggest fourth-quarter comeback by a rookie quarterback ever, topping John Elway’s 19-point rally with Denver on Dec. 11, 1983.”

I watched a lot of Vince when he was at Texas and what I most appreciated about him, despite his incredible physical skills, was his leadership and drive. Look’s like he’s still got it!

Just win, baby!
