I am in no way, shape or form a fan of the University of Texas: for football or any other sport. In fact, I generally relish the opportunity to see UT lose to any opponent, Big 12 or otherwise.

That being said, Vince Young has my utmost respect as an athlete and leader. I had the privilege to see Vince help the Longhorns beat my beloved Kansas State Wildcats in Austin in October 2003, when he was just a freshman. I have posted a new photoset to my Flickr account taken from that game. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos of Vince on the field. (I’m sure he’s on the sidelines in the image below, however!)

Ready for Powercat Game Day!

Watching Vince scramble, run and pass during that game, I commented then that he is THE REAL DEAL. What an amazing athlete! My thought at the time was, why isn’t UT playing him all the time, even as a freshman he was clearly the most talented quarterback and runner on the field?!

Tonight Vince proved it for a national audience. Congrats to UT and UT fans.
