Last December, Jan McCoy traveled to New York to see her grandson honored at the Heisman weekend. She got to the outdoor set of the "Today" show on the following Monday early enough to be on the rope line. When one of the guests, actor Tom Cruise, worked the crowd, she introduced herself to him as Colt McCoy's grandmother. Cruise lit up. "I love your grandson!" Cruise said. You should be proud. He's a great player and a great kid." http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/preview09/columns/story?columnist=maisel_ivan&id=4391994
