Rose Bowl MVP Vince Young Leads
It was a game for the ages. The match-up was so powerful it seemed like something dreamed up for Xbox 360.

USC, ranked number one, bringing two Heisman winners and more than a couple of potential first round draft choices and a 34-0 record taking on Texas, ranked number two, 19-0 record, Big 12 champs and a Heisman runner-up. Both schools came in averaging over 50 points a game.

Rarely do 1 vs. 2 match-ups live up to their hype. But last night the Rose Bowl delivered nothing less than was promised. Many of my fellow Southern Californians are mourning the loss of the USC Trojans (UCLA fans excused) after three years of domination, 34 straight wins that is. But no can argue that it was one of the best bowl games in maybe forever. The game was a magical display of leadership, historical individual performances and solid coaching.vince young.jpg

With 19 seconds left, Texas proved itself a national champion and worthy winners as Vince Young scored his third touchdown and capped an individual performance that has few equals. The Longhorns were led….no carried, by Vince Young. Young accounted for nearly all of Texas’ offense. He passed for 267 and he ran for 200 yards. More importantly, when it came to crunch time, his team, his coaches, the Texas fans all looked to Vince. He wanted the ball. He showed the leadership.

The finish was amazing because as Texas had the ball with two minutes left, you could feel it. Everyone knew Vince Young would have the ball and yet no one on the field could stop him. He was in charge.  His confidence unwavering and his talent equal to his confidence.  He kept his cool and swagger, just as he had all season, then delivered the win.

I agree with you in the fact that Pete Carroll has proven himself as a successful coach for the Trojans. Two Heisman trophy winners and a 34 game winning streak is proof enough for me. What an amazing game played by both teams! Pete Carroll may need to rebuild his empire. With the news that Lendale White will not be returning for his senior year, and Reggie Bush expected to make his decision tomorrow, I only have two words to say to 'SC. FIGHT ON!

I'm with you Roberta, Fight On. Tell Scott good luck on the garage.

I'm trying to get a mailing address so my 8 yr old son can mail, 1 of 10 letters to Mr Young, or his e_mail. Or tell me a place I can find, we have been all over the net looking.
Thank you for your time. Mrs Hulien

Mrs. Hulien,

I have searched and have not been able to find any contact for Vince Young or a fan club for him. I suggest that you send the letters via email or email one of the coaches or assistants and ask for an address. Click the link for the directory for Texas Football.

I agree that it was an exciting game to watch but I don't think that SC played it's best game of the season for the biggest game in the histoy of the program. Reggie was not used properly to utilize his huge talent. The offensive coodinator called a very poor game, the worst of the season. The play that the "replay camera" missed because of "technical problems"
hurt SC badly. And the worst call in
SC football history was having Reggie on the bench on 4th and 2 with 2 min.
left in the game. With both Reggie and Lendale in the back field Texas would not have been able to stack the defense in the middle where everyone in the stadium knew the play was going. With Reggie's outside speed they would have been forced to protect the the whole field. All in all I think the coaches lost the game for us (SC). That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Fight On!
