The article focuses on the football team of the University of Texas at Austin, Texas. The foundation of this now desperate quarterback situation at Texas is based on a series of untruths and changes of heart. Player Vince Young promised for the months that he'd return for his senior season at Texas. It took him all of four days to change his mind after an electrifying performance in the Rose Bowl. His decision leaves the national champion in a precarious situation. Texas has nothing at quarterback behind Young. Coach Mack Brown had backed off other quarterback targets because he thought he had landed Ryan Perrilloux. INSET: Way too early TOP 10.
