radio V-I-N-C-E

The Man, Vincent Young, was a guest on sportsradio610 this morning. Let's go to the highlights:

If he hadn't gone to college at Texas, he would have picked Miami... He wasn't a football fan til he was a 10th grader... As a teenager, he followed the Oilers...Most of the UT offense he ran came from the Indianapolis Colts...When he works out, he likes to jump rope to strengthen his legs...He's familiar with the Texans' personnel and especially likes the physical way that WR Andre Johnson plays...A.J. Hawk of Ohio State was one of the best defensive players he faced in college... Fastest players on UT's team are Jamal Charles and Ramonce Taylor...His favorite feature of Matthew McConaughey's house in LA: the outside shower...He's quite wary about staying away from trouble, specifically mentioning that he's let it be known that he can't be around "marijuana" or "concealed weapons"...He runs the 40 in 4.42...He plans to participate in The Combine in Indianapolis but won't do all the drills...He hopes the Texans draft him ... "C'mon Texans, c'mon, baby," he said, laughing ... If the Texans don't draft him, he said "I'll look forward to playing them."
=================================
By the time the interview concluded, some 30 to 40 people had gathered outside radio station KILT, looking for an autograph, said sportscasters Lance Zierlein and John Granato. It's like that everywhere, apparently, for the amazing Vincent Young, "The Man."

Did you hear Richard Justice this morning?? He said that, while at the Texans facility some wag said that if the Texans drafted V. Young they could double ticket prices. The kicker was that Justice said (paraphrase) the first thing that went through my mind was "oh no, Drayton is gonna want to draft him" hahahah I thought that was hilarious

What????

Re: He's quite wary about staying away from trouble, specifically mentioning that he's let it be known that he can't be around "marijuana" or "concealed weapons"...

Does sounds like he may not need steroids for a while, but hasn't this non-fraternization attitude been pointed out as a problem of the current Texans QB?
