    My feelings on VY have gone full circle

    First I hated him

    Then I felt sorry for him

    Now I hate him even more than before

    Not only do I hope we annihilate the Titans but I hope he has his worst game ever and comes out in pain.

    It comes down to this:

    Some people are idol worshippers and some people are sports fans of their favorite team(s).

    Frak, Hookem and some others are in the latter. Unfortunately, they're also in the minority when it comes to these UT/VY yahoos.

    Why are Longhorns such brain-dead m0r0ns when it comes to VY and ex-Longhorns? Can an alumnus help me out here?

    Man ... I remember how bad it was in the 1970 draft when the UT mob wanted the Oilers to draft James Street .

    what I find it comparable is two players
    HWDNM
    comp 59%..6.4 yd avg per pass 160 yards per game ; td ratio 2.9% int 3.1%


    and VY
    comp 58%..6.5 yd avg per pass 144 yards per game td ratio 2.9% int 4.0%


    what Vince has going for him, is that he is dangerous on 3rd down, if the defense lets a lane open up, vince can pick up that first and extend the drive.

    as far as the discussions go.. I think we could exchange names in the old threads about a certain QB . I think I have used every argument for HWDNM ...now I seem to notice the same spin for VY

    I'm not an ex, but I liken it to Napoleanic Syndrome. Austin is irrelevant in professional sports, so when "one of theirs" does well for UT the "exes" idolize said "one of theirs" and puff their collective chests...

    :user:

    But then again I don't see the same love for some of the other great players that have contributed to them being a perenial BCS contender i.e.: Limas Sweed, Cedric Benson, David Thomas, Nathan Vasher, Michael Griffin, etc, etc., etc...


    So, at the end of the day, I got nothing.

    I think what VY figured out is to run up the field and not across the field .

    If we're putting the Titans in 3rd down situations were doing our job. I'll take that. Its them running through our defense on 1st and 2nd down and never seeing 3rds is what I'm worried about.

    Good point... I lived in Austin my freshman year of college and I noticed that the locals there are very bandwagon when it comes to pro sports. Tons of Spurs/Astros/Cowboys fans there. Or just whatever bandwagon is trendy at the moment. It was VY's rookie year there so there were tons of "oh I'm a Titans fan because of VY" people. Needless to say I moved away from Austin as quickly as I got there.
