Matt McCoy, a senior walk-on who has never thrown a pass in college, is practicing as the No. 1 quarterback for Texas while the Longhorns wait to see if Colt McCoy will be able to play in the Alamo Bowl against Iowa.
An Associated Press story about this by Jim Vertuno should be available later this afternoon on the "Colt in the News" link above.
Quotes from Vertuno's story:
- "We still don't know about Colt. It's a long way till game time, and they have not told us yet if he'll play." - Mack Brown
- "It's coming along every day. All of the pain is gone." - Colt McCoy
- "We know Colt's going to be ready to play." - Matt McCoy
- "I'm the emergency quarterback only." - Quan Cosby (wide receiver)
