How do you top a clutch win in the Championship game? He's a shoo-in for the Heisman if he stays, but why risk those $100 million knees.

I think Young said "We'll be Baaack..." again. He declared his intention to return to UT in the past. I would think he'd have to give going pro serious consideration, but maybe he'll pull another Leinart and return to college.

I'm still not sold that VY will be a Pro Bowl QB in the NFL. The game is so much faster, I just have trouble believing he'd be able to pull off many of those scrambles.

USC lost the game in the first quarter with cocky Reggie Bush trying to lateral the ball and giving it to Texas, then USC going for it on forth down early in the game when they could have had a chip shot field goal, or calling their last time out before Texas' 2 point conversion.

Or going for it on forth down on the 50 in the 4th qtr.

Young's knee being down was a bad call, but it still would have been 1st and goal if they had called him down.

Yep...and the extra point wouldn't have been rushed as well...

BS! The officials in the game tonight beat any NFL officiating team.

USC blew it by not reviewing the first Texas touchdown. Bad coaching decision by Carroll.

Eric Dickerson had his best years running behind one of the best offensive lines in NFL history, with four perennial Pro Bowlers in Kent Hill, Jackie Slater, Dennis Harrah, and Doug Smith. He was very much the exception to the typical low-running NFL backs.

Vince has probably practiced laterally the ball a thousand times in his career. How many times as running back Reggie Bush practiced it? Apparently not enough. His job is to run with the ball.

(USC should have punted.)

The way Vince was playing, I wouldn't have taken the chance to put the ball in his hand either. Pete Carroll made the right choice (especially since they were running through Texas like butter). They just didn't execute or Texas made a great stop. That's all there is to it.

Texas had ONE great player....the rest were okay at best. The crapy officating will keep the NCAA in the news for weeks=$$$$$$.

LOL - Texas has 3 all americans on their offensive line alone. You may not realize this, but Mack Brown along with Phip Fulmer is the best recruiter in the college game.

I give Fulmer the edge over just about anyone else becaue Tennessee doesn't have much in state talent like Texas, Florida and Georgia do, so he goes out nationally and is able to get recruit head to head against Texas and USC in their own states.

Texas is a very talented team.

White reminds me a lot of former Giants running back Rodney Hampton. Not the quickest guy on the field, but a solid, consistent performer who was among the most reliable backs in the NFL for several years back in the 1990s even though he didn't play behind great offensive lines.

USC went into that game with a big chip on their shoulder and thought they showboat and still come away with the win.

They never ran into someone of VY's caliber before.

He was unbelievable, and I'm a Sooner fan.

You might be right. But a team that is looking to change a guy's position like that probably won't even think of drafting him until the fourth round. Way too much uncertainty in that.

If they had made the proper call with Vince Young's lateral, Texas would have had a lst down on the 10 yard line. A touchdown is very likely in that situation.

In the notre dame situation, if the officials had made the correct call, the game would have been over right then and there and USC would have lost.

I only saw two obvious bad calls in the game, one for each side. The Young to Young lateral was one, since Vince was clearly down, but even if the play was overturned, Texas probably still would have scored, and USC might not have had time to come back and get points.

USC caught a big break on the next drive, when an obvious interception was called an incomplete pass and not reviewed. The Texas player clearly had the ball until he hit the ground, meaning it should have been Texas ball. With more than 2 minutes in the half, the momentum would have shifted greatly to Texas, we may well have scored again before halftime. At the least, USC would not have gotten the field goal.

USC blew it by not reviewing the first Texas touchdown. Bad coaching decision by Carroll.

Tonight, USC was out-coached. Not taking the FG the first time they went for it on fourth down, not punting at the end of the game, and taking the time out prior to the Texas two point conversion are just the obvious ones. USC defensive ends continually taking the outside track on the pass rush, which opend up holes for Vince was a bad move. Should have not penetrated so deep into the backfield, but shold have kept Vince in front of the pass rush to force him wide if he was going to leave the pocket.
