UPDATE: New stories about Snead leaving, Coach Fran's apology and Colt's recovery are now on "Colt in the News." Also, a bunch of people have been leaving comments in the chatroom.
Both Dallas and Austin newspapers are reporting that Jevan Snead of Stephenville will transfer out of UT at the end of this semester.
Where he's going isn't exactly clear, although Houston, Louisville and TCU have been mentioned. Supposedly, Mack Brown will let him out of his scholarship.
You can't blame Snead for leaving, and you can't blame Mack Brown for being crazy like a fox and signing both Colt McCoy and Snead. As I mentioned weeks ago, Snead is too good to be a backup somewhere. He sure was powerful insurance at the quarterback position, though.
The 'Horns have QB Sherrod Harris in a red shirt right now, while two other blue-chippers have made verbal commitments - John Brantley and John Chiles. They're supposedly two of the best in the nation.
I'm still hoping Snead opts for my alma mater - Texas Tech.
ANOTHER COLT SIGHTING? Chances are Colt will be back in Abilene this Saturday to watch his father and two brothers as they lead the Graham Steers (7-5) into the third round of the playoffs.
The McCoy boys will take on Midland Greenwood (11-1) at 4 p.m. at Shotwell Stadium.
Two weeks ago when Colt - recuperating from the KSU stinger - was at Shotwell to watch the Steers beat Dalhart, 33-15, I was standing in line with my son at a Wal-Mart in Dallas trying to get a Wii.
If you're part of the Burnt Orange Nation, and IF Colt does visit Abilene, don't expect to see him much. Last time he stayed cloistered in the press box to help keep the focus on the field where it should be.
