Today is Colt McCoy's birthday and also the nine year anniversary of the day he quit drinking...Dr. Pepper.
"My dad challenged me, going in to play football," he said. "We had this guy motivational speaker come in and said, if you want to be your best, you won't drink (soda pop). You'll drink water or Gatorade."
Can you imagine what type of motivational speaker travels to Tuscola?
It's doubtful that the Big 12 Conference wants to publicize the fact that McCoy is no longer a Pepper. A couple of weeks ago they extended their sponsorship agreement making Dr. Pepper the official soft drink of the Big 12 through the 2011-2012 athletic year.
