    Who here is a VY fan that ISN'T a fan of the college he went to? I'm just curious about the correlation of VY fans to fans of the college he went to...

    count me in...but then again I was the only person on any Texans board calling him a future NFL superstar before the Rose Bowl.

    see, i don't mind that at all (when people have been fans of VY before the RoseBowl) it's all these new, converted VY fanboys that are the brillo pad in my boxers.

    Me too. Realized he was something unseen after Oklahoma State last year (2004). He's confirmed my every suspicion since.

    I am the exact opposite of your question. I am a big UT fan and lived in Austin for 4 years while I went to SWT/Texas State Univ. I love Vince's game but I don't believe he's the right fit for the Texans, at least not at this time.

    I am a VY fan and I hate UT. I am an Aggie and UT can burn for all I care. Either way I am a fan of him, but dont confuse that with wanting him anywhere on the Texans franchise.

    Texas State University semi-alum.....if you dig hard enough, there is plenty of photo/video evidence of myself hanging intoxicated off a giant horse statue screaming ******* UT.....Not a big fan of the burnt orange, but vince is going to be something special in my opinion.

    I've been a fan of Vince Young since I noticed him taking games over by himself.I guess I first really knew he was more then just a scrambling QB when he beat Michigan in the first Rose Bowl.I'm not a fan of any college really,I get drawn to great teams and great talent.

    Man that is harsh! I am a UT fan but I don't hate A&M, especially to that point you hate UT.

    Lived in the Austin area 4 years, have been a VY fan for 3 years, and I think he is remarkable. I can appreciate fans liking VY but not UT. Heck, I think Adrian Peterson is unbelivable but I don't like OU one bit. Anyway as much as I like VY and UT, I don't think he is the best fit for our Houston Texans (my number 1 team.) I will be pulling for VY where ever he goes. I favor trading down, but it is a win-win situation.

    I know the thread ask for people that are not fans of his college, but I had to chime in.

    I'm a fan of VY. I'm not from UT, but I have a friend that is a UT alum and watched a lot of games with him. I've thought since the Ohio St. game that he could be special. I didn't think he would come out this year, though. I think he is going to be a star. Nothing is guaranteed, but he's as close as you can get.

    Still, I am a Carr supporter and think that trading down and improving the team around him is the best option right now. Nothing against VY, but he's not what the team needs most right now. So, I guess you could say I'm on both sides of the fence. Hey, the grass is always greener where I am.

    I think I'm on record as being of the same opinion Vinny. I've at least thought it since his first Rose Bowl MVP performance.

    Of course I live in Austin and loved UT since we had a guy named Earl Campbell playing pro ball in Houston. FWIW, I don't wear orange colored glasses (seems like what GanadoUHCoog is really asking); I'm not a fan of Bensen or Simms, and Roy Williams has been phoning it in since his junior year.

    NOT A YOUNG HOMER/HATER....and not a big fan of college football (too many regular blowouts)...but VY looks to be all that and a bag of chips. His upside potential is enormous, and if he can translate his attitude and drive to the NFL, he'll be a superstar wherever he lands.

    A lot of folks were not really exposed to Young until he was on a national stage, so I don't see what the big deal is if he's picked up some new fans along the way of the past few months. idonno:

    While I'd love to see him in Texans gear, I won't be upset if we choose another path to follow. That's football.

    I've been calling it since his days at Madison. The guy never cease to quit amazing me with his on the field leadership and athletic ability. It has nothing to do with Texas, as I was a bit disappointed when he choose Texas without listening to what the other universities were offering him at the time. Great that it all worked out.

    I've been watching him since the doctor spanked him. The minute he screamed out like that I knew he was headed for the football Hall of fame. Then, I could tell by the way he waddled in those pampers and shuffled back and forth. He's a natural. I saw him throw a peanut at his sister and I knew he'd hit Andre Johnson (oh, I knew about him too) for many touchdowns.

    PS-P-Buch threw peanuts at his sister too, but he missed....and she kicked his ***. :rolleyes:

    Well, I have to admit I'm a RoseBowl fan......... 2004 that is. That was the first game I really watched where Vince did more than run. I watched every UT game this year, because Jamal Charles is from my hometown......Port Arthur, TX, and he and my nephew are friends.

    Don't mean to hijackt this thread, but Charles is a special athlete. He nearly set the record in hurdles while weighing 15-20 lbs more than any other competitor.

    I went to UT, but that doesn't mean I suck up to every guy who played football at UT.

    Chris Simms? Screw him. I'm not going to be a homer for Chris Simms.

    Vince Young is something special though. I've known this for a long time, and I didn't need to see the Rose Bowl for me to think that he would do well in the NFL. I think that the fact that it TOOK this year's Rose Bowl, one friggin' game, for his stock to climb, just shows how imperfect scouting is.

    The Rose Bowl didn't affect my opinion of Vince Young. Not one bit.

    But yes, I was a Longhorn. Feel free to hold that against me.

    The loser always hates the winner more. If A&M dominated Texas the way Texas dominates A&M, Texas fans would hate A&M more. It's like that with most rivalries. I too don't mind A&M. I root for them when they are not playing Texas.
