    You'd be amazed at the amount of money you can earn with a four year degre...

    Hey that school benefited big time from his stay there. No he didn't split the atom or find a cure for some disease but he made the school millions. If they found a way to scratch his back in return that's ok. Now we'll see if he can find a way to scratch by on a six figure salary.

    Might as well give him a welfare check. 100k salary for a guy who does good to spell his own name. He is getting paid with our tax dollars to do what? Raise money for tu? Maybe he can get these guys together and go have a money raising sausage fest

    The question is will Aggy University do the same for Johnny 8Ball after he too busts out of the NFL.

    Just saw this old post after the thread got bumped, but still had to correct the misperception.

    The UT football program is self sufficient. It generates so much revenue that no taxpayer money is involved. That's why the head coach of UT football is the highest paid state employee to no one's objection.

    So the 100k a year for Vince to walk around and high five students is more of a trust fund check than welfare.

    Indeed UT is very well funded and has trusts set up from many past Alumni. The land that has oil producing wells alone is massive not to mention people like Red McCombs. I think they did the same thing for Earl Campbell. First time he gets arrested for anything it will be over.

    We may make jokes about VY's intellect but he seems to at least have the "don't get arrested" part down of being famous.

    Man, at this point, I just feel sorry for Vince Young.

    Yep. I still remember the 60 Minutes interview with him during his sophomore season with the Titans. It ended with him declaring, "Ain't nobody can tell me nothin'!" I knew right then that his career would be limited. So while I feel sorry for him a bit, he has to know by now that this is at least partly his fault.

    Yep. My 'feel sorry for him' attitude is more "go away" than actually having any sort of empathy for the guy.

    So it's more of a feeling sorry cuz you keep having to hear about him thing?
