Vince Goes Pro

Almost every TV station in Austin broke into regular programming to carry UT quarterback Vince Young's press conference this afternoon. He's not coming back for his senior year and that's the right thing for him to do. Any UT fan who begrudges him that is a burnt orange asshole.

Aside from the money, there are long-term health implications to consider. The earlier he gets in and out of the NFL, the better. Sadly, it doesn't look like he'll be drafted by the Texans, but the Titans might be a good fit.

I was down by UT when night fell and the campus was swarming with people trying to get family photos with the orange tower, which has been lit for four consecutive nights. There are always photographers down there when they light the entire tower, but nothing like this.
