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.
