    Sorry if this was posted before, but there is a made for TV College Football All-Star Challenge thing that is going to be on ESPN on Saturday.

    VY will be in it. Bush and Leinart opted out.

    Here is an article about VY's participation in it and more:

    I kinda like junk sports TV. Battle of the Network Stars was a favo. Imaginary bonus points for the first poster to name the unlikely guy that beat Robert Conrad in a footrace.:superman:

    The thing is that if all the places in our brain that are filled with useless knowledge and silly stuff were filled with actual practical highly educated stuff, cancer would be cured.

    In the meantime, we are left with the College Football All-Star Challenge, and making people smile.:redtowel:

    I'm gonna have to remember to TiVO it:

    http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/sports/13745731.htm

    Football stars on displayVince Young or Reggie Bush?

    If you had the first pick in the NFL Draft, which one would you choose?

    Both Bush, the Southern Cal running back who ran away with the Heisman Trophy, and Young, the Texas quarterback who ran away from USC to win the Rose Bowl MVP and the national title, will be at Dolphins Stadium today to compete in the Capital One College Football All-Star Challenge.
    There will be three divisions of competitors: quarterbacks, receivers/running backs and kickers.
    The event, which features some of college football's top players, will begin at 12:30 p.m. and will air Feb. 4 on ESPN. It's open to the public.
    Young and Bush head the field that includes Miami wide receiver Sinorice Moss, Florida wide receiver Chad Jackson, Alabama quarterback Brodie Croyle, Maryland tight end Vernon Davis, Clemson quarterback Charlie Whitehurst and Memphis running back DeAngelo Williams.


    The article is wrong because Bush isn't showing.

    Do you get a paycheck for dissing every move VY makes? Give it a rest. You have very little posts on this board and three fourths of them are bashing VY. Do you really have nothing to do or what?

    yes. except i wasn't bashing young there. i was bashing ignorant fans who don't watch college football, or don't know what makes a good quarterback. but good attempt at sherlocking me anyway

    I read this in the paper today and had flashbacks to Robert Edwards blowing his knee playing sand voleyball at the Pro Bowl as a rookie.

    You stand there and see who can throw the farthest, and then try to throw at moving targets.

    Not too dangerous.

    Anyhow, the deal was taped and has already happened. So I'm guessing if he got hurt, we would know, so he didn't and I guess that means we are not "blessed."

    Ish, what an ugly thought.

    I think the biggest blessing is for Bush and Young and Leinart and Brick and everyone near the top of the draft to look sweet so the first pick is worth more.

    64 into a stiff wind. Not bad. I hope we can put the girly-arm talk to rest. The first two were over 70, but wide right.

    What an awful thing to say about anyone. Saying anyone getting hurt is a "blessing". You should be ashamed of yourself.

    In the receiving drill you had to catch balls for ball machines set at 60-70mph for 30 seconds.

    Results:
    Chad jackson:27
    Sinorice Moss: 19 catches
    Vernon Davis:16
    D'Angelo Williams: 15
