February 25, 2008



It hasn't been a dull February for Colt McCoy and the Longhorns.

The first of spring practice (if you can call February spring) was completed last weekend, and a "feel good" session it was, by all accounts.

Also last week, Barack Obama stopped by the UT athletic digs, and you can see a bunch of pictures of him with Colt at mackbrown-texasfootball.com ... plus, of course, a lot more practice photos like the one above.

And now today, ESPN announced the Longhorns will face the Aggies on Thanksgiving night next fall in Austin (that's Nov. 27 at 7 p.m.). Colt will be trying to win this first game against the Maroon-clad farmers. The only other Big 12 team Colt is o-fer against is Kansas State, but the Wildcats aren't on the schedule this season.

Well, Colt McCoy won't have the nation's No. 1 high school runner in the backfield with him next season after all.

Ventura, California, running back Darrell Scott announced that he will attend Colorado, choosing the Buffaloes over the Longhorns.
