Colt McCoy's wife causes a stir on radio

While Ohio State may be the current center of the NCAA violations universe, the wife of former Texas quarterback Colt McCoy may have caused some problems for Texas on Tuesday afternoon. Rachel McCoy called into Colin Cowherd's show on ESPN Radio on Tuesday and then started talking about Texas football players being offered things for free while in Austin. Thankfully, SB Nation was kind enough to transcribe the key parts for us.
People in Texas are just being friendly and they don't mean anything by it at all. They don't realize most of the time it is a violation. Texas is very clear with their players ... You cannot expect 19- to 20-year-old men to not accept free stuff while they're in college ... There's no way that college kids can really, honestly say no to all this stuff ... It's hard for a lot of these guys to even know ... I saw so many of his teammates who maybe didn't have some of that self-control to be able to say no to somebody. It's hard because you've got adults who you respect who you think will know what's right and what's wrong ... You do what adults say; that's how you're taught. So you have adults offering things, promising the world, doing all this stuff: we're taught to go along with that. That's the respectful thing to do. It's interesting to see adults really putting kids in these positions where they're taught to agree and go along and respect.
Now that excerpt is far from Rachel McCoy's words in their entirety. After listening to the entire conversation -- you can listen to it yourself here -- I'm of the opinion that there really isn't much here. While McCoy talks about people in Austin offering things to Texas players, she never actually says that any of her husband's teammates accepted anything. She just talks about how hard it would be for kids to say no to such minor things like free dinners. 

So while some people may try to make more out of what McCoy said about Texas football, I'm rather confident that nothing she described during her radio appearance doesn't take place on college campuses everyday throughout the country. It's certainly nothing that I think the NCAA needs to worry about, as they've got some bigger fish to fry at the moment.

Wow! Really? Did you actually read the article (c'mon man it's only a few paragraphs). You seem to have decided you know whats wrong with this country, but cant help falling over your own ignorance. The author stated that there was likely nothing said that needs to be investigated. More to point McCoy's wife actually puts down those same adults that you were bashing as the real problem ("learned from adults..."). Maybe next time you should write what you want to say, then remove any illicit statements that are directly motivated by your insecurity. The articles that are written here are designed to be polarizing, not actually news worthy. Welcome to media!!

What an ass.  See that's the heart of the problem with this country.  Instead of bashing the sleazy perps (boosters, agents, etc.) that get these players into trouble you go after a players wife.  What class, what intellect, it almost sounds like your bashing out of jealousy of the players accomplishments.  See we all want the fame and fortune, and when we can't get it because were not as driven and talented, we'll tear the person that's accomplished what we couldn't down.  Makes us feel less inadequate if only for awhile.

Not exactly the 'brightest bulb in the box' is she?! LOL. There's a world of difference between getting a little help like some free dinners or other necessities than there is in getting tattoos & pot for trading in memorabilia that should mean something to them later in life. Frown Common sense is quickly becoming a thing of the past.

I'm guessing Colt didn't marry her for her intellect.  If he did, I would imagine he is thinking of an annulment.

Texas, really?  BAHAHAHAHAHHAHA!  Austin is one of the most LIBERAL towns in the country.  Why must people mis-report the FACTS!!!  C'mon people!!!  you''re all better than this!!!!!  And you better believe Texas is DEF cheating as well.  Maybe they toned it down after Mccoy left (see record) but that doesn't change the facts.  His wife spoke the truth....I LOVE YOUR WIFE!!!

ON a side note why aren't people asking for for Anthony Miller's resignation?  Why is he able to keep his job....as a public servant?  Laughable.  And why isn't the NYTimes or CNN asking for his resignation.....exposed daily for the joke they are....

Sorry, this means nothing. Texas is one the the strictest programs out there, and they would never let something like this go on.

This was just Colt Mccoys wife speculatiing that it could go on based upon the maturity levels that she saw when she was around the team.

Texas is as conservative as it gets..... if anyone cheated here, they would be hanged.

She is an idiot, a kind hearted, "I am only trying to help idiot.  When Pat Sheehan, a would be Longhorn star running back wasn't producing in the 60's, Darrell K. Royal asked him what was wrong.  Royal had seen a beautiful blonde, I mean beautiful girl from Dallas by the name of Wendy Withers on his arm around team events.  Royal said if the problem is "your girl friend, she'll be out of school fast."  Coaches don't like the fat little girl friends, (as former Tech coach Mike (whatever his name is) distracting their players.  Wendy? She is a goddess still at 63,  Rachel McCoy?  A nothing burger who will certainly keep her mouth shut in the future.

Typical of a dumb blonde, she gets a free pass though for being smoking hot.
