However, McCoy had also mentioned testing the NFL draft waters. But now, per the Dallas Morning-News, Longhorn fans can (presumably) rest easy, as Colt reached out and told everyone that he will indeed be coming back next year.
"I'm coming back," McCoy relayed through a UT spokesman this afternoon.
[...]Late in the season, McCoy had mentioned getting feedback from an NFL advisory committee to gauge his possible draft status. He still could without jeopardizing his eligibility. But he won't have to worry about the draft itself for a year.
Well, he'd obviously be a fool not to at least listen to how many millions of dollars he could earn by leaving for the NFL. But at the same time, Colt's situation is one that definitely warrants -- in my oh-so-motivated opinion -- coming back for another year.
Texas more or less just gotjobbed by the BCS standings, thanks to a silly Big 12 tiebreaker rule, and can't play for a national title. Additionally, a strong run by Tim Tebow and a possible championship for the Gators could have squeezed Colt out of a potential Heisman Trophy, and one would have to think that in 2009 he'd be a pretty strong candidate to win. Looks like he feels the same way, or at least cares about unfinished business.
