Retire #10

The Athletic department will not retire Vince Young's number because he did not win the Heisman Trophy.

Am I the only one bothered by the fact that the only numbers that the Athletic department has retired (or will retire in the near future) are Earl Campbell's #20, Ricky Williams' #34, TJ Ford's #11, Kevin Durant's #35 and Roger Clemens' #21, when Vince Young was without question the greatest and most popular athlete to come through the university save Major Applewhite, plus, unlike the other players on this list, he has actually delivered a championship. No disrespect to the other players on this list, they were great athletes and truly deserved their player of the year awards, but just because Vince didn't win the Heisman does not mean #10 should be on the field instead of on a banner.
