Even for me as a fan, it really stung to watch my team lose the BCS national championship. I can only imagine what it would feel like as a player.
Colt McCoy is the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Brown, but two years ago he led the Texas Longhorns to the BCS title game to play against the Alabama Crimson Tide. Both teams were undefeated, and it was a big game. It was the game that McCoy had been preparing for his whole life to play in. McCoy was driving the Longhorns down the field and looked like he was going to lead them into the endzone for the first touchdown of the game. But McCoy injured his arm at the end of that first drive and had to leave the game. The Longhorns went on to lose big to the Tide. I remember the game, and it was sad to see McCoy go out like that.
Colt McCoy is a Christian, and in the video above he talks about what the loss has meant to him as a Christian now two years later. This is great stuff.
