From Cecil Hurt of Tuscaloosa News - good stuff on Colt

Link to article here.

And there was Colt McCoy, the most subdued of the five finalists.

That was understandable. He just missed winning the trophy last season. After this year’s third place finish, he has had the best college quarterbacking career of anyone with a last name other than Manning, not to actually win the Heisman Trophy.

“It was an honor just to be here,” McCoy said. “And I won the Doak Walker Award and the Maxwell Award and have those to take back to my teammates.”

McCoy didn’t talk much about the upcoming BCS Championship Game. That may be because he will get to talk about it ad infinitum for the next three weeks. He even said that he and Ingram, who spent two days together at the pre-Heisman festivities “never talked about it.”

He did seem impressed with meeting another Alabama legend earlier in the week in Orlando, where he was awarded the Maxwell Trophy (which has become the anti-Heisman over the past decade).

“I got to meet Bart Starr and hang out with him for a day, which was really a great experience,” McCoy said.
There was no word on whether the two discussed the BCS title game.
