Colt McCoy’s wife is jealous of 40-year-old men.

As if the NCAA doesn’t already have enough on its plate

… Rachel McCoy said she felt most people who approach players and offer gifts are naïve to NCAA rules.

“Regularly, it’s just dinner,” she said. “People in Texas are just being friendly. They don’t mean anything by it at all. They don’t really realize, I don’t think, most of the time that it is a violation.”

Regardless, she said, the NCAA needs to implement harsher penalties to discourage boosters from this sort of behavior.

“You can not expect 19 and 20-year-old kids to say no to free stuff when they’re in college,” she said on the radio. “It’s silly. We need to make something more set for these adults to hold them accountable.”

You know what the real problem at Texas is?  Good manners.

… Rachel McCoy said Colt’s father’s Brad, tried to shield him from agent attention, and that Colt brushed off any he received. Other Longhorns, though, were tempted by premature offers from agents.

“I saw so many of his teammates who just maybe didn’t have that self-control to say no to somebody,” she said on the air. “I know I can’t. It’s not my personality. I don’t want to hurt people’s feelings. It’s hard because you’ve got adults who you respect, who you think will know what’s right and wrong. When you have adults offering things, promising the world, we’re taught to go along with that and say yes because that’s the respectful thing to do. It’s interesting to see adults put kids in those positions.”

Mack Brown is probably wondering if he needs to hire an assistant coach for etiquette now.  Maybe Miss Manners is available.  She’s one tough cookie.

    Well, I do declare, that here in Texas it’s quite polite to offer athletes cash donations, cars and hookers. It just wouldn’t be proper, otherwise.

    Why if that’s “the respectful thing to do,” then Southern California and Auburn, Alabama can boast the most respectful players in the US! Thankfully the NCAA appears to be coming around to the idea of rewarding such respectful young men.

    I’ll bet Mack Brown wants Rachel McCoy to just STFU!

    Knowing now that Rachel McCoy can’t say no to anyone makes me wish I had courted her. Aw what the hell, maybe I’ll give her a ring today.

  6. Mrs. McCoy’s Twitter background is a photo of her in her wedding dress firing a shotgun. As far as I’m concerned, she’s damn near perfect, and yes, my girlfriend corroborates this.

    thank you, thank you! I’ll be here all week. Try the veal!

  8. She should be jealous of 40 year old men, most of them have a bigger chest than she does.

    I understand from a buddy that Mr. and Mrs. Colt moved in across the street from my old house in Austin. I would’ve had to walk over and ask her to make me dinner on a regular basis, knowing her problem with saying no and all.

  11. Seems like she is just being honest… and really, she has a much more clear perspective on the issue that anyone reading this blog ever will….

    Just sayin…

    And she is just about perfect…. except for the “finger toes”
