When tempted to despair about the state of the country and ongoing failure of both parents and our educational system, along comes Colt McCoy. Working and training for the better part of his young life, he gets injured a few minutes into the biggest game of his career, a shot at the collegiate national championship for his Texas team, and the last game of his collegiate career.
No one would have blamed him if he had shown anger and depression in his postgame comments. Instead, in one of classiest displays I've ever seen, he congratulated winning Alabama for their effort, thanked his team for their never-say-die spirit, and spoke highly of the freshman who stepped in after his injury.
Best of luck in everything you do young man. But I don't think you will need any luck.
