Vince Young going to the NFL

I just saw the press conference tidbits, but bottomline is that Vince Young is leaving Texas one year early and going to go to the NFL.

I think it is a good move for him. His stock is quite high at this point and there are a few teams that can use him at QB. I don’t know if he will go ahead of Leinart, but he can easily go to the Titans.

If that happens, it will be weird. It will be the second year in a row that Norm Chow will have the USC’s opposing QB from the National Championship game, after Jason White from last year. Such is life.

But more importantly, USC may actually start at #2 next season. Especially given the blockbuster recruits they signed yesterday.

    New Orleans Saints are going to have a rough season next year, with most likely no home stadium till November/December, if at all. Too bad for Leinart. I hope they let Brooks stay at QB for year and have Leinart learn the system, seeing how well it worked with Carson Palmer at Cincinnati.

  2. ML at TN with Chow would have been a dream, but he goes to the Saints, I believe. I think Bush and Leinart go out before Vince. Vince is a great college ball player, but NFL is going to put their $$$ on RB and ML. I had Texas pre-season #1, but they drop below #5, IMO. USC moves up now to #2 or #3 behind Ohio State and ND. followed by LSU.

    @sc94: ND above SC? I am not too sure. They got walloped by Ohio State in the Fiesta. The only thing going for them is almost all their offense is intact. And one more season under Weis will have a tremendous boost to them. But their defense is questionable to the point that they won’t be justified to get #2 billing in the pre-season.

    @sc94: Also, ML at TN with Chow would be great, but also he would be learning under a great QB in McNair. Oh well, I think being rated higher means you have to start with a lower-rated team. We’ll see how it unfolds for all 3 of them.

  5. USC will start #2 next season – it was a sorry day; they could have made it 3 wins in a row….On other hand, I think Vince Young is hot @ this moment and should go to NFL.

    @Supermus: Welcome to the blog. Vince Young was phenomenal and I think he did single-handedly beat the Trojans. Yes, it was sorry to end up on the wrong side of a classic. We did end up on the right side of another classic against ND. But I guess we were woken up to reality, which is we cannot keep winning forever. Losing in the last game of the season just makes it harder. But yes, I think USC will start in the top 5 at least, and given the light start to the schedule (or so it seems at the moment), they can start working out the backfield losses by the time they get to the tough games down the stretch. Cal is going to be good, and so will ND and ucla. We just need to win the Pac 10 and take care of the rest later.
