Colt McCoy’s Post 2010 BCS Game Interview

I did a rough, quick transcription of Colt McCoy’s class-act game interview after the 2010 BCS National Championship – full of strength and faith!

I love this game, I have a passion for this game, I’ve done everything I can to contribute to my team and we made it this far and it’s unfortunate that I didn’t get to play.  I would have given everything I had to be out there with my team.  Congratulations to Alabama, I love the way our team fought…Garrett Gilbert played as well as he could play, he did a tremendous job.  I always give God the glory, I’d never question why things happen the way they do.  God is in control of my life and if nothing else I know I’m standing on The Rock.

…You know I really have no pain in my arm, I just can’t feel my arm.  It wasn’t a painful hit, I’ve taken that hit over and over again in my life…playing this game I know I’m going to get hit…like I said, I’m not in pain, my arm’s dead.  It feels like I slept on my arm, woke up and my arm’s dead.

I thought this was so great and I looked for it immediately after the game…here for anyone who’s been dealt a rough hand…may you handle it with the graciousness that he did.

  1. A Buckeye Fan and a girl saved by the blood of Jesus Christ, I have terrific respect for Mr. McCoy’s post game interview statement. Life in the here and now doesn’t always happen the way our limited vision would seem to think best. That in no way negates God’s goodness or His sovereignty. If our lives in this short span of a lifetime that we are given bring Him glory, it will give us more joy, both now and for eternity than we could even begin to imagine. Praise God for Mr. McCoy for declaring his willingness to live up to that truth and for the boldness to state it on national television! :) I was rooting for Texas all the way…and in spite of it all, it *was* a good night.

  2. amen to standing on the rock! God will bless you in your life. Thank you for setting an example.

  3. I’ve watched Colt McCoy his whole college career at Texas and he has been amazing! The best thing about him is his testimony. He always gives God the glory for everything. His words last night were so incredible. I was thinking it wasn’t fair. Texas would’ve won for sure if Colt could have played. Colt wanted so bad to win this game for his coach and for his school. Instead of being down,sad or mad or blaming God for what had happened, Colt said God knows what He is doing and there is a reason for it. Wow! Surely God will bless Colt for his great testimony and the way he openly talks about God. Sure hope to follow Colt in the NFL.

  4. I watched the whole game. And even when things started looking bad, I cheered them on all the way. Garrett played his best. And even being pressured. Bless him and Colt. Colt didnt let go. Even when he couldnt play, he cheered his team on from the sidelines. Ive watched Colt McCoy in every game he’s played. He’s outstanding. My idol. It would have been nice to see Texas kick Bama’s butt. Bless McCoy and Texas.Watch out for McCoy in the NFL .They’ll do outstanding in the future. Just you wait. <3
