Kudos to the adults at Texas.
The Longhorns may have lost the national title. But in the biggest game of the season, the grown-ups may have saved Colt McCoy’s NFL future.
ABC’s Lisa Salters talked to McCoy’s father, who said the injury appears to be a sprained shoulder. McCoy begged to return. His dad, the team doctor and Texas coach Mack Brown decided it wasn’t right to take the risk given his NFL future.
This was supposed to be The Year of the Quarterback in college football. It turned into a jumbled mess.
Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford returned to school and injured his shoulder twice. Florida’s Tim Tebow got knocked out with a concussion. And McCoy was injured on the Longhorns’ first possession of the game.
