It seems like yesterday that highly touted college quarterback Vince Young was high-stepping his way through the USC defense en route to Texas’ 41-38 victory in the 2006 Rose Bowl.

Of course, yesterday was about, oh, seven years ago now and the one time perceived future NFL is now 30. Oh how a bright future can dim so quickly.

It’s been over eleven years since Vince Young enrolled at the University of Texas, but today, the former NFL quarterback can now say he has graduated from college, an amazing accomplishment for anybody – a lost pro athlete or not.

While there was no big celebration or ceremony, Young did receive his graduation diploma in Earning and Development and can now frame it among the many topless photos of himself in a club he probably also has framed in his home. Hopefully they’re surrounding by the neon necklaces he loves so much. /fistpump

Sadly, there was no $300,000 dollar birthday party or strippers at the University of Texas office when Young was given his long awaited diploma, but despite that, I say congratulations Vince. You’ve earned it.
