    After watching Vince Young lead UT to another 4th quarter comeback, I think there is a very good argument to be made that he is the best player in college football, better than Leainart, better than Bush, better than everyone else. He can obviously run the ball, he can take a pounding from linebackers and safteys, and as he showed tonight he can pass the ball. 270 yds and 2 tds against a defense that most "experts" considered one of the best in the country, on the road! Bring on OU!

    I just hope he doesn't come out early and let the Titans draft him.

    This game was just a huge blow to all the Young bashers. End of story.

    It's amazing how good the defense can make a quarterback look...If they hadn't held OSU to field goals after the INT's, Vince would have been the choker who blew the game instead of the hero.

    Outside the picks, he did have a great game though.

    Granted, I know it's a long season and just the second game. But has Young opened your eyes somewhat? Does he not display the signs of a QB? And leader? Share your thoughts.

    OK...so I'll ask.. two INT's gave the ball to OSU inside the 25. IF OSU scored touchdowns instead of FG's and UT lost, do you honestly think everyone would be talking about his great game?? Without that D, he would be a goat right now.

    Looks like you & I saw the same game...I'm not sure what game Vince Young looked like a "God" in.

    both teams had great defense, of the 3 quarterbacks in the game Young was by far the most dominant

    was he a god? nope, but he was very very good, but there were great players and plays on both teams... college football at its best :thumbup

    Look gents, I don't know what game you two saw. But the one I saw I saw a man who was beaten and thrown around like a rag doll and still overcame. You heard all week how if he had to pass to beat Ohio State it wasn't going to get done, mission accomplished. Sure, give the "D" its due. They played their butts off. But as great as that "D" played it wouldn't have meant a thing if Young wouldn't have rallied the troops for a comeback win. Give credit where it is due.

    Agreed, but it works both ways...without the defense overcoming the mistakes Vince did make (and those picks he threw were TERRIBLE), there wouldn't have been an opportunity for a comeback.

    My whole thought originally was that it takes a TEAM to make any one player look great, and I found it interesting that it was the defense that probably keeps Young near the top of the Heisman race. Nobody will remember those picks ONLY because the defense held, so Young was in position to win the game.

    No doubt. It's a team thing. And the two picks, i'll give you the first one but the second I don't know about that one.

    He led two good drives, one at the beginning and one at the end. Fortunately, that's all that was needed for UT to win the game. I'm sorry, but he simply doesn't appear to be "all that & a bag of chips" to these eyes.

    Yes, he definitely took a beating, but if he's the second coming of Michael Vick, he should have been able to avoid those hits, right? **

    Naww, I'm not a hater. I just get irritated when Heisman HYPE overshadows a good, but not outstanding performance. The Texas "D" won this game, not their QB. Why take away from their performance to hype Young? Does the Mack Brown "hype express" have any stops along the way?

    ** - Example of screaming, blatant sarcasm - for those that NEED to be told
