Deep in the Heart of Texas
From Friday's Austin American-Statesman:
It's been widely reported how quarterback Vince Young all but guaranteed a win over USC as he was being interviewed by a reporter from the New York Post. His "gangsta" comments have made the rounds as well.
Meanwhile, defensive tackle Rod Wright's quotes also have made the USC fan site bulletin boards. Wright wasn't bragging when he made the statement that Texas was preparing for the Rose Bowl with the idea of dominating. He said the Longhorns mentally prepare for every game this way, whether it's Rice or Southern Cal.
USC Coach Pete Carroll addressed the Texas quotes this week during the Trojans awards banquet.
According to bloggers for insideusc.com who attended the banquet, Carroll said: "They talk like they ain't been here before."
