Vince Young Hall of Famer

Recommended Posts

Kinda surprised he wasn't already

 

 

Thirteen years after delivering one of the greatest individual game performances in college football history, Vince Young is now a Hall of Famer.

The Texas quarterback great headlines a star-studded 2019 College Football Hall of Fame class that also features former Notre Dame returner and receiver Raghib "Rocket" Ismail and Ole Miss linebacker Patrick Willis, who both will participate in the coin toss in Monday night's College Football Playoff National Championship between Alabama and Clemson

Man this topic makes me feel old. I remember applying to undergrad when VY was playing. Rocket Ismael was my first favorite Cowboy when I could actually understand football. Now they are in museums

VY aside, Ismail not being in there yet is just amazing.  He’s 50 and for the whole time I was in college he was the face of those ND teams that won a NC in 1988 (with Tim Brown) and should have in 1990. I remember that clipping call on his Orange Bowl TD being played on Sportscenter 10,000 times.

They don’t get inducted until DEC 10?

That’s a lot of coin tosses, first pitches, and victory laps until then.

 

Well deserved...

This was my take. It's silly that VY wasn't in yet, but it's been twice as long since Ismail played.

Love this guy.

If I were picking a team from only Longhorns that I've seen, Vince took Earl's place as first pick for me. I was in Earl's class at Texas, so I have a deep attachment to him and his greatness as a person.

VY and Earl on the same team would have been an unmatched duo.

Congrats, VY. Keep enjoying life and representing the University.

It *WAS* clipping, and it was right in the point of the play.

I hate all of you guys. I don't want to think of these guys as mortals; they are legends that never die.

The best I’ve ever seen 

You and Pete Carroll. Everyone in the CFB universe knew that the only chance USC had to win was to convert that 4th down. With the lead late in the 4th quarter and the chance to pin us deep, the coach of the greatest football team ever was rightly afraid of VY.

Yeah, it was a good call, but it doesn't change the fact that the return itself by Ismail was ridiculous. It's true that he probably wouldn't have scored without that, but his balance, acceleration, and speed were amazing on that return.

Good lord, VY and Earl on the same team would lead to a whole bunch of priapism.  I suspect there may be several fatal cases.  I'm not sure I'm ready to die, so probably its for the best this didn't happen.

Did you ever see Earl back in 2005?  He could barely walk even back then. I’m not sure you’d want Vince handing off to him, except maybe in garbage time.

VY til I die, motherfuckers.

This is great news, though it does kinda grate on me the way so many seem to minimize his and his teammates' incredible 1 1/2 season run by emphasizing his 2006 Rose Bowl performance ... 

That team, with that GOAT of a QB, was a fucking juggernaut for about 20 games. Just fucking unstoppable. Maybe the best college football team of all time.

Opposing defenses would have to be removed from the field using acetone and a spatula.

According to Wikipedia, here is the criteria:

Quote

 

The National Football Foundation outlines specific criteria that may be used for evaluating a possible candidate for induction into the Hall of Fame.[17]

A player must have received major first team All-America recognition.
A player becomes eligible for consideration 10 years after his last year of intercollegiate football played.
Football achievements are considered first, but the post-football record as a citizen is also weighed.
Players must have played their last year of intercollegiate football within the last 50 years.
The nominee must have ended his professional athletic career prior to the time of the nomination.
Coaches must have at least 10 years of head coaching experience, coached 100 games, and had at least a .600 winning percentage.[18]

 

 

Considering his comeback attempt in Canada, I'm not sure when he became eligible for induction. Rocket's been eligible for about 15 years, but it looks like the rules change from time to time, so it's unclear.

Marshall Faulk, Peyton Manning, and Matt Leinart were inducted in 2017, so the timing of things is a little weird.

I used to blame 100% VY.

It wasn't until the Rams' turnaround that I changed to about 80-20 towards Fisher just being a vindictive control freak.

Not gonna argue the immaturity and VY's role in it, but that "bust" was a two-time pro-bowler, a rookie of the year, won 2/3rd of his starts with the record losing coach, led a historic mid-season turnaround in 2009 (0-6 to playoff contender), and was benched while leading the NFL in passer rating in 2010. I get the ceiling looked like the NFL's Michael Jordan, but calling him a bust is a huge stretch. Despite all the drama and the perception of his success (partly egged on by his sociopath coach), he had quite a bit of NFL success. He also led one of the best game-winning drives I've ever seen. This was the team that started 0-6 with him on the bench.

Yes, Fisher made him insubordinate, eat his way out of the league, become a poor leader...etc

 

VY is my fav college player of all time.  But he was a fuck up in the NFL and is nothing more than an after-thought who I worry for. Seems prime to be a deadbeat broke legend in 5 years based on his past decisions.

Bullshit, aggy. You don't know shit about VY if you think he ate his way out of the league or wasn't a leader. Try harder, asshole.

Ive been posting on Shaggy about this subject for over 5 years you dipshit. I love my horns, but when I see defenders of VY acting like aggy Johnny Football apologist, it pisses me off because you fuckers will suck off VY just like Aggy did tom Johnny. Get a grip you motherfucking piece of shit loser.

Most VY defenders I've seen on here make their case for what he did on the field, not trying to excuse his missteps off of it.

 

The potential as a play maker was off the charts.  Fisher lacked the self confidence to lead such a player.

Jesus, lol. Dude went 30-17 with a career .500 coach that hated him and set him up for failure in an offense that literally could not have possibly been worse for him ... and he's a bust?

Ya, ok. :jlaw:
