Thank you for your service

After winning the MVP award for his performance leading the Longhorns to the BCS National Championship with a stirring victory in the 2006 Rose Bowl, Vince Young went on to a successful NFL career.  Well, sort of successful - he started 50 games and had a career passer rating of 74.4, right between Y.A. Tittle and Jake Plummer.  Could have been better...could have been worse...

No, he did not achieve greatness.  But he played a man's game as well as many others, and in so doing took home $25 million in guaranteed money.

All of which is gone now.

I wonder if he got his degree from the University of Texas...
