We are now 6 days away from College Football! Vince Young is the 6th best College QB of all time!
I still feel like 6 is too low for Vince, but no Heisman & only playing 2 & half seasons puts him just outside of the top 5 sadly. In Young’s 1st season he alternated time with Chance Mock playing a huge role in leading Texas to 10-3 & he won Big 12 Freshman of the year. His sophomore season is when he really took off leading Texas to 11-1, 35.2 ppg, & #5 in the country, but Young’s passing stats dipped & he almost threw for more picks than TDs, his 1000+ yds & 14 TDs in the ground are how he succeeded. In his junior season he took his passing game to a whole new level becoming one of the most dominate college players we’ve ever seen. He threw for 3036 yds & ran for 1050 on the ground, had 38 Total TDs, competed 65.2% of his passes, averaged 9.3 Y/A, & had a 163.9 Passer Rating. In any other season, literally any other season Young would’ve swept every award available, but he just happened to be playing like a HOFer at the same exact time Reggie Bush was putting up the best college season regardless of position, so Young finished 2nd for Heisman & all other POY awards behind Bush. But Young got his revenge on Bush when it mattered most in the National Championship. The 06 Rose Bowl is known as the greatest college game of all time & rightfully so. USC entered the game on a 34 game win streak & came in as the reigning champs (some would argue refining back to back champs). & arguably the best college player ever Reggie Bush. Texas has the 2nd longest streak in the country & the 2nd best player in the country. USC & Texas were the top 2 offenses in the country averaging a combined 99.2 ppg. The game did not disappoint late in the 4th quarter Texas trailing 4th & 5 in the Redzone 38-33 18 second left, Young takes off & runs into the endzone to take the lead giving us one of the most iconic CFB photos of all time (above) leading Texas to the win in the greatest game ever played & he gave us the greatest performance ever seen Young gave us 467 total yds the most all time in a championship game, he out ran Reggie Bush by running for 200 yds...
