Some highlights and lowlights from week 11 in the Texas Longhorns football locker room.
Colt McCoy Ties Record for Wins
In Saturday’s win over Baylor, Texas quarterback Colt McCoy tied the NCAA record for the most wins by a college quarterback. He ties former Georgia quarterback David Greene with 42 wins in his college tenure, and with two more regular season games, the Big 12 Championship game, and a post-season bowl, McCoy has the chance to set the NCAA record next week with a win against Kansas in Austin.
D.J. Monroe Arrested for DWI
Texas freshman kick returner D. J. Monroe, who has scored two TDs on returns this season and been a spark plug for the ‘Horns special teams, was arrested overnight for driving while intoxicated. There is no doubt head coach Mack Brown will have strong disciplinary actions for Monroe, as he has become less and less lenient with player’s antics or missteps over the years. Expect Monroe to be suspended for at least a game or two, if Brown lets him come back and play this season at all. The last thing this Texas team needs is negative distractions, and you can bet Brown will do everything in his power to make sure nothing gets in the way of a trip to Pasadena.
