Case McCoy Takes the Reins

Updated: Tuesday, October 22 2013, 05:05 PM CDT

Case McCoy has started and played a full game five times in his UT career.


He's 3-2 in those five, but 2-0 this year.


His career has hit just about every bump in the road imaginable, yet here he is, a senior quarterback dragging Texas back up off the mat.


When asked Monday why TCU is the favorite against Texas, McCoy fired off a quick response.


"Probably because I'm the quarterback," McCoy quipped.


McCoy's self-deprecating humor is only matched by his underlying ability to find a way to win.


"I'm not gonna impress you on paper at all," McCoy said about his height and weight, "but I thrive on that.  I love it.  My teammates love it.  They know who they're gonna get."


"He's always had confidence. That's who he thinks he is," said Texas head coach Mack Brown. "Confidence is not an issue.  This is his team.  He is the guy."


McCoy will try to erase the bad memories of the TCU loss a year ago.  McCoy replaced David Ash in the second half, only to throw the interception that clinched a Horned Frogs win.


TCU hosts Texas Saturday night in Fort Worth at 6:30pm, under McCoy's direction.  Not many believed McCoy could get another shot at the starting job, but a few did.


"My mom does.  My mom is supportive," McCoy said.


"But my dad's still a little hard on me."


He is the son of a coach, no doubt.
