For the first time ever, I actually decided to head on over to another team's blog to see what they were writing about the Horns. In this case, I decided to visit Double T Nation where I found this post. Although I don't really care about the Vegas odds on Tech beating us (or vice versa - I expect it to be close and don't care to try to quantify it), I did take exception to the author's statement that Colt can be neutralized with pressure --> "Tech crushes Texas because simply, McCoy can not (sic) perform under high pressure."
I'm writing here because I am an admitted UT homer and my reflex response to this statement was that Colt is not nearly as flappable as this submission seems to suggest. As I've watched him throughout this season, I've seen a QB who can easily roll out of trouble and make plays (just remember the fumble/pass play two games ago) when under duress. I'll readily admit, though, that I am not a football technician and may be missing something. So, I open it up to you BON... disabuse me of this notion if I'm wrong or just add fuel to my fire if I'm not. Either way, I will read on with interest!
