NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Titans quarterback Vince Young thanked Reggie Bush for helping him get tickets to Monday night's game in New Orleans. That doesn't mean Young has forgotten losing the Heisman Trophy to the running back.
Young tells ``60 Minutes'' in an interview performed in June but airing Sunday night that he was angry about not taking the Heisman Trophy back with him to Texas in December 2005. He finished second in voting behind the Southern California running back.
``And I wanted to show the world that I was the real Heisman Trophy winner. But on paper, Reggie Bush is the Heisman Trophy winner. (I am) not taking nothing from him, he knows he's a phenomenal athlete,'' Young said in the interview.
Is he better than Bush?
``I always feel like I'm better. Always,'' Young said.
Young responded by running for 200 yards and throwing for 267 in beating Bush and the Trojans in the Rose Bowl for the BCS national championship in January 2006.
Young finished that season with 3,036 yards passing, 26 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He ran for 1,050 yards and 12 touchdowns.
Bush had 1,740 yards rushing, 478 yards receiving and returned 18 punts for 179 yards. Bush led the nation with an average of 222.3 all-purpose yards and scored 19 touchdowns.
Bush also was drafted a spot ahead of Young in April 2006.
Young easily won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award by going 8-5 as a starter. He set a rookie quarterback rushing record with 552 yards and became the first rookie quarterback to play in the Pro Bowl since Dan Marino in 1983 as a late addition.
