VIDEO: Case Keenum talks about his 6th year at UH

Case Keenum overcame the odds by being granted a sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA after tearing an ACL in the third game of his senior season.  Keenum has arguably established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in Houston football history, and is closing in on a majority of the major passing records at the NCAA level.  However, when Keenum went down against UCLA it appeared those records would stay in tact.  

But the NCAA is not going to keep a talent like Keenum off the field in order to preserve records.  He will return to the field in a limited fashion this spring, and expects to be full strength for the start of the 2011 season.  His return has made the Cougars a threat once again in Conference USA, as he will try to lead Houston back to the postseason after a five-year bowl streak was snapped in 2010.

He recently sat down during a Houston basketball game to discuss his return to Houston for a sixth year, as well as some of his talents on the hardwood back in the day.

Im no Houston or Case Keenum fan but the guy red-shirted his 1st year, played until last year when he got hurt in the 3rd game... not sure your arguement makes a lot of sense.  It's not like he is going to play in 6 full seasons, think of it as 4 years and 2-1/2 games.  Other players have played more due to injury.  You really think the uptight NCAA cares about any one person (unless it's Cam Newton or the 'sounding ridiculous for saying "the" in front of' Ohio State players) playing? 

Keenum met the requirements for the medical hardship waiver.

He would have beaten the records without the three games.  Go troll elsewhere.

I'm not sure how close he is to breaking the records, but from the sound of it, he was going to break them with or without those first 3 games' statistics.  Either way, I'm guessing he's a lot less concerned about breaking records than he is on securing a draft pick in the 2012 draft.  I don't know how he'd fare in the NFL (see Andre Ware, David Klingler), but even a backup in the NFL pays better than an accountant/teacher/bus driver.

Redhawk, I agree with you, they should not consider those three games he was in during the 2010 season, since they area allowing an extra year as if 2010 never happened.  Either that, or make him sit out the first three games of 2011.   Frankly, after 3 games, there shouldn't be any allowance for an extra year, but make him sit out the 3 games.

Easy to set all time records when you get to play in more games than all the competition- they should toss all the stats yards/completions etc from the three extra games before he was hurt or add  an * to any record he breaks during his 6th year
