Horns Wrap Spring Practice

By  | 

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Texas wrapped up its spring practice today
with its annual Orange & White scrimmage on a sunny but windy day
that wreaked havoc on the passing game. Steady winds of 18 mph and
gusts up to 30 caused balls to float too far or knocked others
down.
"It's a challenge," said quarterback Colt McCoy, who was 11 of
24 for 95 yards and an interception that was returned for a
touchdown.
Yet there are few concerns that McCoy, last season's runner-up
for the 2008 Heisman Trophy, has somehow lost the touch that
completed an NCAA record 76.7 percent of his passes.
That's because spring games are more about watching
up-and-coming players than about veterans having big days.
At Texas, that meant watching a receiving corps operating
without last season's top two receivers, Quan Cosby and Jordan
Shipley, who combined for 181 catches last season. Cosby has
graduated and Shipley, who will be a sixth-year senior in 2009, sat
out spring drills.
