Amazing. There's just no other word for it. Amazing.

I didn't feel safe until we led, 217, and had the ball on our last touchdown drive.

I just enjoy being along for the ride.

I'm not opposed to it. I just don't understand it.

He's superb. Spectacular. Somebody said he runs with greased ease and I thought, 'What a perfect description of Vince Young.' It looks like his legs are greased, and his body is greased, and he's so fluid that he's just going to slip off the ones who are lucky enough to touch him.

The Texas-OU game is a big revenue bear. And because it's played at a neutral site, you don't have as many student body going as you would if it was home-and-home. These are full-price tickets.

People were concerned about Vince's throwing motion. He's completed enough passes that I don't hear that anymore. He's got a strong arm. He can throw the deep pass without too much stepping forward.

I enjoy baseball. I go to the home baseball games, I got to the home basketball games. I don't travel anymore except the Rose Bowl and the Oklahoma [football game].

That's the game everybody still talks about. Even after all this time. It would be nice to win one again.
