He can regale them with tales of his days with the "Dream Team".

He is prolly busing tables at his steak joint.

I can see Vince just sitting in the library replaying the game over and over on a projection screen and beckoning anyone passing by to watch with him while he narrates his own highlights.

Yeah, this was a no brainer. I'm sure it's a crazy amount of money, but good for VY. I wouldn't think twice about pulling up to the nipple of the NCAA.

It'd be a nice way to get some tail. I can't drive down The Drag next to the UT campus, I'd have an accident. In my pants.
UT coeds are amazing.

WRONG . . . there's no way he knows where the library is.

Well, the Cheesecake Factory in austin does make a great Sangria.

Nah, I was rooting for Texas in that game. But I'll be damned if I miss an opportunity to bring up Vince's $5k a week Cheesecake Factory habit.

Many of my brain cells were killed that night in celebration.
They died for a noble cause.

Why would it be a crazy amount of money? Last I remember Young is broke as fark, he'd be working as a walmart greeter if not for this.

Isn't he by pretty much all accounts a nice guy who loves Texas? Probably a perfect job for him.

yeah, he's from texas.  he's a nice guy.  i graduated from UT the year before the horns won, and was still in austin.  there was nothing bad said about him.

/ that was a fun season.

Yes indeedy, they are... and they'll he heading my way in droves here in a couple of months for Texas/OU Weekend!

Fundraising.

Vince is there because the University sees value in having a non-broke VY hanging out and schmoozing with the boosters. They get to be around college greatness- and Vince was a great college quarterback- and he gets to chill out in Austin. This is a good deal all around.

He may have pissed away all his NFL money but Vince Young still has some serious clout in Austin and to a lesser extent the rest of Texas. If UT didn't hire him I guarantee he'd be hired by a UT alum to do PR for his/her firm (see, for example Vince Young Steakhouse and I believe he was pimping sausage for a while too).

Say what you will about the horns but they do have a tradition of taking care of their own, ask earl campbell.

I thought he had died in a murder-suicide thing with his mistress after getting caught in a dog fighting scandal with a wooden toilet paper holder or something.

No, that was Donovan McNabb, but I KNOW, they all look alike right?

That was the last time UT athletics was relevant in anything other than conference realignment.  Boy it's been a valley of suck ever since.

And...  the last time college football was remotely exciting.  That was a hell of a game.

Final 4 in the College World Series is nothing to sneeze at.

They're going to Cheesecake Factory......will Penny be there?  (Not unless Texas plays in the
Rose Bowl; then they can go to Pasadena.  BTW - if it's Texas, will Sheldon be there? He's from
Galveston.)

Good for him. If Tebow didn't have the popularity to command the money he is probably getting, he could go back to Gainesville and be king.

As if everything else in sight wasn't enough evidence that the major college athletic departments have WAAAAY too much money to waste, this is yet more evidence.
