Ya'll are right about the ability to go back for his degree. I still would liked to have seen him go back to get the Heisman. That, he cannot do once he enters the NFL.

I was just joking vrod. It just saddens me that people take a moment out of their lives to wonder if someone is going pro or not. I mean do these people take a moment out of their lives to wonder if were going on a ride? I think not. I personally give a rats about these people or what they do. ITs fun to watch but I mean twelve shows dedicated to explain to us if he is going pro or not. Its stupid. By the way I dont play the lottery. Jeff

Aw well, no matter, he will be a great pro QB. Texas has many other young prospects up-and-coming.
you have to know that nike and all the other major brands will want to sign him, his contract will have a huge signing bonus...and about the injured during camp thing....

they have a weird insurance thing with most high profile players.....

take lebron james for example....
after he signed that contract with nike...he was guaranteed 15% regardless of if he got hurt, or sucked, or whatever.....

i'm sure they have some sort of guaranteed money in his contract.....

i agree with trey....we get degrees to make money, and we get masters and doctorates to make more....

he's pretty much selling himself when his stock is the highest...smart move!

you're right... it's all about the money, and the fame.

but mostly about the money...

i can see the argument on both sides, but i personally think he should have stayed. he could get injured yeah, but dont you guys forget that these star college athletes already have millions of dollars in insurance policies. he does have the best pass completion percentage, but doesnt mean hes got it down. if you watch him throw, he relies on his receivers to come down with the ball to much. he needs a little more confidence in his arm. if he stays TEXAS will be a preseason number 1. no one left in the NCAA can hang with TEXAS, maybe ohio state. they have a good chance of repeating if he stays. also if he goes this year he wont go number 1. if he stays he has a great chance of winning the hiesman and repeating and almost a for sure number one pick.

but hey if someone threw me millions of dollars today...i would probably leave too.

Believe me.....I know personally Vince thought about all of this before he made the decision to go pro.......Honestly all year long he planned to go back to school next year but decided that this was a season that he may never be able to top and for the most part he deserves it.....Vince is a good kid and has always been.......His entire family and friends are behind him 10000%.....Smart Move!

millions now or millions later, i would probably take the millions now. BUT if i wanted to make myself a better football player...i would stay in school. then again, millions of dollars is hard to pass up.

never ever take a running back high in the draft everyone knows that. dominick davis is rushing for a 1000 plus person season sure reggie bush is good but david carr is . we need vince young. people say it's not carr's fault because of the offensive line. but davis is rushing for a 1000 plus behind the same line. carr sucks let's get vince young.
