Colt McCoy Is Deadly Accurate, Literally

Colt McCoy likes to shoot varmints. You may think I'm being elitist and coyly ironic in using the word "varmints," as in, "Ha ha, oh, the humor of rural ways and how it amuses my Mac-using, latte-sipping multi-degreed fat ass." I don't mean this at all. Colt likes to shoot varmints to get his anger out, and he said so himself on ESPN Radio with Tirico and Van Pelt today. ↵

↵Transcribed from the original audio: ↵

↵
↵⇥Mike Tirico: What did you do Saturday night? Did you watch Oklahoma? ↵⇥

↵⇥Colt McCoy: No. .. I didn't see the point in watching the game ... I sat home with my parents -- you really want to know what I did Saturday night? ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Scott Van Pelt: Yes, because I don't believe you didn't watch the game. ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥McCoy: Alright, well, I called up some buddies and we went spotlightin'. We went huntin', basically. ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Van Pelt: Wait, you're talking to two city guys here. What the heck is spotlighting? ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥McCoy: It's basically where you get a spotlight, and you just kind of look for varmints and -- ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Van Pelt: Varmints? Possums? Armadillos? ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥McCoy: Yeah, Armadillos, anything really. You just have to go out there and shoot stuff to get all this anger out. ↵⇥

↵McCoy said this was "all good clean fun." If you're teetering about who to put on your Heisman ballot, please consider that Colt McCoy not only has a proactive approach towards anger management and superb aim, but he also shares a large amount of common vocabulary with Yosemite Sam. That, more than anything else, screams Heisman to me.↵
