    name sounds like a disease, but MAAN he gives opposing offenses a disease of sucking when they operate near him. what year is this guy in? he looks like a top 5 caliber draft pick

    he is doing a good job filling the shoes of those great OSU linebackers that just left but he isn't a top 5 caliber player right now. by the way he is a sophmore.

    Looks like a Brian Urlacher type, a good leader.

    He's a good linebacker. But just to irk Texas fans. Troy Smith > Vince Young.

    lol It might bother a Longhorn like me if there was even a shred of truth in that or evidence to support it.

    Lauranitis is a great kid. He's Roadwarrior Animal's son, for real. He has a great future if he keeps the pace up.

    I think Troy Smith is a better passer. Vince Young is a better runner and the better playmaker (of what I've seen). But it's only 4 games into the season. It'll be easier to compare the two once the season is over. Would have been nice to see Troy Smith vs Vince Young in the UT vs Ohio State game though.
