LA Times: Vince just got lucky

Opened the paper this morning and started reading about all the unlucky things that have happened to the LA Area teams.  Apparently, Vince wasnt unstoppable in the Rose Bowl, he just got lucky.

USC held a 7-3 lead in its BCS title game against Texas when Longhorns quarterback Vince Young seemed to touch his knee down before throwing an option pitch that went for a touchdown. The play was screaming for a replay review, but on college football's biggest stage of the season, the replay-review system malfunctioned, depriving officials of the right play to review. The illegal touchdown stood, setting up Young's final scrapbook moment — fourth-and-five from the Trojans' eight, an obvious passing situation. USC plays it that way, looking for a pass that never comes, as Young pulls the ball down and sprints for the pylon for the winning score. Texas fans and the national media immediately declared Young "unstoppable," but here we saw it differently. Here we are aware of the truth. Here we know that twice in that big game, Young was nothing but awfully lucky.

Laughable, man! HA.  Sorry guys, we've been had.  Vince isnt really that good.  Back to earth.
