Colt McCoy's younger brother, Case, edged out Houston-area private school product, Connor Wood, to be the designated clipboard holder behind heralded starting quarterback Garrett Gilbert. In early reports from camp, Wood, who is 3 inches taller and 30 pounds heavier, had the early lead for the fan favorite position. Nevertheless, McCoy edged out the more ballyhooed Wood, according to Longhorn coaches, because he is better at checking down. For those unfamiliar with football vernacular, "checking down" means dumping the ball off. This dink-and-dunk passing game, a trademark of offensive coordinator Greg Davis, will be necessary because McCoy can expect opposing defenses to blitz him heavily, pummeling him like Mel Gibson beat his Russian girlfriend, if he is forced to actually throw the ball in a game.
