Vince Young University of Texas

Can the University of Texas Rise Again?

In college football, it takes the Jimmy’s and the Joe’s to win. Or, in Texas’ case….the Young’s and the McCoy’s!

75 days: Only 1 QB in FBS history has completed at least 75% of his passes for an entire season, Colt McCoy (2008).

As we get closer to kicking off the college football season…this nugget caught my attention. It’s a great reminder of the good old days of the Texas Longhorns and what they are missing: a QB!

Mack Brown was a winning coach because he had Vince Young and Colt McCoy. I’m not taking anything away from Mack’s skills… just pointing out that he was a really good coach who had two really good QB’s.

The Texas Longhorns will return to prominence when they get another Young/McCoy at the helm. I also applaud former Longhorns offensive coordinator, Greg Davis. Davis was the OC at Texas from 1998-2010 and probably doesn’t get near the respect/admiration he should have for grooming Young/McCoy. Davis is now the OC at Iowa. 

The Longhorns offense’s were record breaking in those days… days that most Longhorns fans long to see.
