Vince is known as the "Machine" in the Pantheon circle due to his running back stature.
Vince went on to run for the University of North Carolina and graduated
in 1992. The coaching staff at UNC was rumored
to have been very glad that Vince graduated because he was known as a big whiner and moaner, always had
SOMETHING to complain about. Probably stems from that UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) attitude he has.
