Colt McCoyEven after a rough sophomore season, Texas quarterback [tag]Colt McCoy[/tag] is getting a little preseason love from the national media. USA Today has McCoy as their number one sleeper QB poised for a possible Heisman Trophy run. Not entirely out of left field, after all McCoy was a legit Heisman contender before his injury in 2006. Anytime Jimmy Clausen makes a list like this you know the guys making it are reaching for some true sleepers.

Read their thoughts on why McCoy has a shot at the Heisman below:

This guy was on everybody’s list after his freshman season in 2006. Now he seems to have fallen out of favor after Texas had a subpar (by their standards) year and McCoy threw 18 interceptions. He also threw for 22 TDs and 3,303 yards. He’s not a Vince Young threat as a runner but he did rush for 492 yards and 4 TDs last year. If the Longhorns are a national contender than this guy is going to get some votes. Playing in the Big 12 will certainly have him in the spotlight.

Maybe my site will experience a rebirth now. Sweet.

    I really think that Colt has a good shot at being a heisman finalist if he can cut down on the int. and put up 5 to 6 more TD’s then it is a good possablilty. UT must also meet its rivals! Texas is under the rader just wait they might just have a great season.
