Messing with Texas


Every year of “NCAA Football,” I like to cruise through the historical rosters and see if I can point out the occasional inaccuracy or oddity. As I keep messing around with the game, I’m sure I’ll find more stuff and mention it in this post. This is what I do when I’m bored.

Texas’ historical teams got a little messed up. First off, where’s Vince Young? The game’s got Reggie Bush, LenDale White and Matt Leinart (not mentioned by name, of course) but the one guy who dominated the championship game and singlehandedly elevated his draft status is nowhere to be found.

Come to think of it, I can’t remember finding the 2005-06 Texas Longhorns TEAM. Anywhere. Didn’t they win the national championship? I’m more than willing to say I just missed them — but I looked twice. It’s like the Texas run and the Vince Young experience never happened. How odd — is this some kind of passive-aggressive form of denial?

Oh, and for some reason, Earl Campbell (HB #20 on the all-time Texas team) has dreadlocks.
