The Young family is not interested in the Heisman.
Vince Young's mother told FOX 26 in Houston she believes her son deserved the 2005 Heisman Trophy, but has no interest in it being awarded now if it becomes available.
"We're not interested in having no honor and no glory out of somebody else they are trying to tear down, no," Felicia Young said. "They did not give Vincent the Heisman when he was there, even though I know that my son, he was the one who should have had the Heisman, but God didn't see it that way. He gave it to Reggie Bush."
NFL scouts love the Texas secondary.
Talking to an NFL scout on Saturday night and the early thought on the 2011 NFL draft is that UT has the two best state draft picks in cornerbacks Curtis Brown and Chykie Brown.
Here is the scout had to say about some of the best seniors coming out of the state this year. Most teams don't sweat juniors until they declare.
CB Curtis Brown
CB Chykie Brown
LT Kyle Hix
"They (the DBs) may not be first rounders, but if they have a good season one or both could end up going in the first round."
The Wyoming secondary may be in for a test on Saturday.
Mack Brown was impressed by this group last season.
And the Texas football coach's impression of the University of Wyoming's defensive secondary hasn't changed heading into Saturday's game in Austin, Texas.
During Monday's Big XII Conference coaches teleconference, Brown described UW's Gipson brothers at cornerback -- Marcell and Tashaun -- as pro prospects. He also likes senior free safety Chris Prosinski and sophomore strong safety Shamiel Gary.
"Their secondary is really, really good," he said. "The safeties are tough and they can hit you. The corners can cover. We were really impressed with their secondary last year."
Thanksgiving could be tough this year. Stoops vs. Stoops.
The kids aren't going to take this Aggie's spot.
The starting offensive left guard worked extra hard to regain a starting role after being demoted to the second team. Now, eight straight starts later, he doesn't plan on letting one of the young, talented freshmen take his spot.
"It's good to have guys pushing you and making you get better, and they're getting better at the same time. You definitely notice them -- that's the future of A&M up front. Things are just going to continue to get better and in turn make us better."
Eike knows all about the rewards of competition.
Bo Pelini isn't changing his game plan, people.
Now the Big 12-2 is a running back conference.
Now those people are brave. There is Texas Exes chapter in Oklahoma City.
What did we learn opening week?
The Big 12 looks a little less tilted to the south. Maybe a lot less, from the looks of Nebraska quarterback Taylor Martinez.
Kansas AD Lew Perkins leaves the job on a very low note.
Condolences to Chykie Brown and his family.
