Coach Mack Brown Can’t Spell Heisman With “I”

Randy Riggs of the AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN has what was likely the reason that Vince Young, after saying nothing about the 2005 Heisman Trophy for five years, suddenly stepped up on Monday and proclaimed, “I definitely want it.

(Brown Eyed The Heisman ‘On Behalf Of Texas’? Hmmm.)

Mack Brown.

Brown credited himself as the reason V.Y. reconsidered accepting the award:

“I think Vince is trying to do what I asked him to do, and accept the trophy on behalf of the University of Texas if it’s offered. I called and I was adamant about it. I said, ‘It’s great for this university, it’s great for Texas, and I think in the long run it’s great for you.’

“I was a huge part of the reason that he agreed he would accept it, because I asked him to in honor of the athletic department and the football team and all of his teammates. I don’t know if he wanted it personally or not, but he would accept it because I asked him to for our program.”

Thankfully, college sportswriter Bryan Fischer was scoring at home and brought Mack’s wack crack to my attention. Scoreboard:

I“: 10
Vince“: 1
We“: 0
