Vince Young's mom: Reggie Bush should keep Heisman
If the Heisman Trophy Trust strips Reggie Bush of the 2005 award, the mother of the runnerup has no interest in seeing the Heisman go to her son.
"We're not interested in having no honor and no glory out of somebody else they are trying to tear down, no," Felicia Young, mother of Vince Young, told Houston's Fox affiliate. Young finished a distant second to Bush in the voting.
"I said they did not give Vincent the Heisman when he was there even though I know that my son, he was the one who should have had the Heisman, but God didn't see it that way. He gave it to Reggie Bush."
Felicia Young is at odds with her son's coach at Texas. Mack Brown, told "The Dan Patrick Show" last week that the award should go to Young if it is taken from Bush because of NCAA violations that rendered him ineligible for the season.
"I know that my son is not thinking about the Heisman because God blessed him with even more than just that piece of wood," Felicia Young said. "He blessed him with the National Championship."
Game, set, match to Felicia Young, whose preference is that Bush retain the trophy.
"Leave him alone because his stats and his ability and everything that he did as a human being in playing football he did wonderful," Felicia Young said.
"I say to Reggie Bush today 'you keep your head up'."
Cowboys top popularity poll
The NFL's most popular team? According to the Wall Street Journal, the Dallas Cowboys come in first. The Washington Redskins place 11th. How? Why? You know you want to know. The WSJ says the Nielsen Sports Media Exposure Index measured local and national TV ratings as well as the traffic on the teams' websites and the number of mentions on the internet. All of the numbers were compiled from 2009, when a certain Washington team was 4-12. Just sayin'.
Brett Favre hates media frenzies
Brett Favre called out the media this morning for losing its collective mind over reports about his retirement/unretirement this summer. ... Ron Artest drives a space-age car (on his way to Costco?) but fails to renew its registration. Terrestrial bummer.
