Great VY article about Texas retiring his number

By my man Richard Justice at the Houston Chronicle:

 

Vince Young did things on a football field that made grown men cry. He brought happiness to millions, made their boring lives worth living. He wore orange, but Tech fans, Aggie fans, UH fans, all fans rooted for him as if he was their own. Such was his greatness.

He made an entire state--and probably an entire nation--feel good about itself. All Vince Young has been to Texans is everything.

That's why nothing that happens this year in sports will be as emotionally powerful as what The University of Texas has planned for August 30. That's when Vince Young's jersey No. 10 will be retired by the Longhorns.

... Texas isn't like other places. Texas only honors a few of its own. Texas isn't like other schools. Greatness is routine at Texas. To have your jersey retired by The University of Texas, you have to be special.

Vince will join Tommy Nobis (60), Bobby Layne (22), Earl Campbell (20) and Ricky Williams (34) as the only Longhorns to have their numbers retired.

There's more chronicling of awesomeness if you follow the link above.
