Former Texas quarterback Colt McCoy penned an inspirational letter to the team before their season opener against Notre Dame.
TexasSports.com released a video featuring McCoy reading excerpts from his letter, which appeared to have a great impact on a number of players. Coach Charlie Strong read McCoy's letter to the team before its game against Notre Dame.
McCoy holds school records in just about every major statistical category for a quarterback including passing yards and passing touchdowns. He is the last quarterback to lead the Longhorns to a national championship game and was the NCAA leader in wins, 45, when he completed his senior season.
Texas won the matchup against Notre Dame in a double-OT thriller by a score of 50-47. It looks like McCoy's words of wisdom worked quite well.
