    I've seen a few posts here and on other MBs about how Bush reacted to his fumbled pitch during the Rose Bowl.
    Many, Many VY supporters have given him grief about it and used it a one of their reasons not to draft him.
    Turn about is fair play...

    Texas A&M at Texas

    Texas QB Vince Young sits dejected on the Texas bench at the close of the second quarter after he attempted to leap over the line to try and push the ball over the goal line to score a TD late in the second quarter only to have it knocked out of his hand and returned for a touchdown by A&M's Buhl.

    The guys calling the game commented on how Vince was reacting to a sub par game. They seemed to be a little surprised and dissapointed in him to me...

    p.s. I am a Longhorn fan (all my life) and I really like VY. I'm still on the fence about the pick for the most part...
    I just wanted to add some perspective

    Well, I really thought the VY acolytes would be all over me, trying to defend their god...

    Maybe enough people haven't seen the post yet. Their don't seem to be as many people reading the Draft & Combine board. This post was moved from the Bull Pen. I'm sure there would have been a little more reaction...

    OMG, give it a rest. People are smart enough not to fall into some troll debate.

    It would be trolling if I didn't have a legitimate point.
    You can't tell me that you haven't seen VY supporters harping on Bush for the same thing that VY did.
    I'll say it one more time. I am a UT fan, and I love VY. I'd be happy with either him or Bush. I just happen to think it is fair to point out the hypocrisy (sp?) in a few threads/posts I have seen here and elswhere.
    There is direct corrolation between the two incidents... you can't say that there isn't.
    Well, you could say that there isn't... but you'd be wrong...

    take a look at my past posts... you'll see that I've been here for a while and I am no troll.
