Texas police arrested former Tennessee Titans and Texas Longhorns quarterback Vince Young Sunday night, and charged him with one count of driving while intoxicated.
It's the season for wildly premature Heisman speculation, and considering quarterbacks have won all but two Heismans since 2000 (Mark Ingram and Reggie Bush being the exceptions), a few quarterbacks and their gaudy stat lines will be in the running this year. But just how far have the goal posts moved on Heisman…
Appearing on The Lowdown with Alex Loeb on 104.9 FM in Austin earlier today, former NFL QB Vince Young said that he would have returned to UT if he had known the Houston Texans, which took Mario Williams first overall in 2006, weren't going to select him:
Listen, love is love, clap the gat at y'all haters
The CEO of your label is a basketball player
That mean your shit is never coming out
Sean Price, I'm forever dumbing out, pyrex
—Sean Price, "Pyrex"
It's a big weekend for Vince Young. Just a few hours ago, he received his bachelor's degree, 11 years after first enrolling at Texas, and five years after the Longhorns retired his number. Tomorrow, he turns 30. The NFL may no longer be in his future, but he's an alumnus now and can do better than paralegal.
So that lawsuit pitting Vince Young against both his former agent and his former financial planner is going pretty much as amicably as we told you it would. Young, who's been out of the NFL since August and is back yawning his way through classes at the University of Texas, is suing Ronnie Peoples, his former…
Cam Newton's decision to re-enroll at Auburn has been a quiet storyline this week, but Newton's not the only national-title-winning QB again giving school the old college try. Vince Young is back in the classroom at the University of Texas, and he more or less began the week with sharpened pencils and an apple for the…
2012 offered many windows into the athlete soul, but none were larger or more revealing than the unfiltered weirdness that came from their screwy social media presences. Here are our favorites, from Cardale Jones delicately explaining that he wasn't recruited to Ohio State for his academic prowess, to everything…
Vince Young may not be the hero Arizona deserves, but he just might be the hero it needs. The Seattle Seahawks are in the process of thoroughly humiliating the Cardinals 58-0. As of this writing, there are an ungodly two minutes and change remaining—and Seattle has the ball.
The Texas-Oklahoma game today was as lopsided as a wink. The Sooners tripled up the Longhorns, 63-21, a score that almost looks like a mercy killing after a 36-2 halftime advantage.
Vince Young is broke and out of work, so you'll forgive him if he retweets the occasional encouraging note. Today, for instance, he retweeted a picture from his Titans days, showing him handing the ball off to Chris Johnson. The fun memory became a desperate plea, however, when VY took the picture and tweeted it …
Vince Young is out of a job, and out of the $26 million in guaranteed money he got when he was drafted.
We wrote a bit yesterday about how Panthers QB/super-rookie Cam Newton has been shortchanged by the national media. We framed it through the prism of Tim Tebow, although Newton deserves plenty of recognition in his own right.
To the surprise of just about everyone last night, Vince Young—whose play up until this point in the game could generously be described as erratic—led an 18-play, 80-yard death march of a touchdown drive that would eventually decide the game. Here's the drive, condensed into a much more palatable 90 seconds.
Our last game of the day. Hope you had fun. If not, feel free yell about it down below.
The Dallas strip club manager who was assaulted by Vince Young over a year ago is now adjusting the narrative of the altercation because he would like some money for it—possibly in the form of dollar bills. Creiton Kinchen's lawsuit says that he did not provoke the Eagles backup by flashing an upside-down "hook 'em…
