Think this is an isolated incident? It happened last year too. In addition we have Ricky Williams and Vince Young both somewhat retarded. Young flunked the wonderlic exam -how did he graduate from high school. Williams drugs and craziness.

UT is a win at all costs school. They are one of the top 3 spenders on football and have a slimy off the field record.

The reason the AP writers can't vote in the BCS was because of Mack Brown's lobbying of sportswriters to change their vote.

Of course monkey see monkey do and in Texas one doesn't hear about all this and so there's a mob hysteria to see the game.

Id much prefer watching Pac !0 or Big 10 teams. Schools that care about academics on and off the field and have a lot more class while spending less (except for Ohio State- a huge spender).

Vince Young didn't fail the wonderlic. Although it was much publicized that he failed it, it later came out that there was a testing error and he scored in the teens (basically average). Of course when that came out it wasn't on ESPN.com main headlines.
Should Mack Brown have NOT tried to get his team into a BCS bowl game after a one loss season in a tough conference?
The off the field record is more a result of the atmosphere then anything else. UT (like any other program) just recruits the best talent possible. Some people have good character and some bad. The fact that Austin is a huge party school makes it more probable that things like this will happen. Mack Brown is tough on people that break the rules, and Lamarr Houston will be suspended at least 3 games.
