Texas quarterback Colt McCoy proposed to his college girlfriend Rachel Glandorf on Monday night and she said yes. The proposal was done very much in the Texas spirit — bigger and better than anything else. McCoy reportedly brought Glandorf into Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Monday night. Then “When they got to the field, “Will You Marry Me?” was on the stadium’s giant high definition scoreboard screen.” McCoy was down on his knee proposing to Glandorf who said “yes.” McCoy’s proposal got plenty of headlines but it wasn’t as well-known as Ian Johnson’s Fiesta Bowl proposal.
Many sports fans won’t forget the Boise State running back who got down on one knee following David’s win over Goliath. Ian Johnson proposed to his cheerleader girlfriend following Boise’s Fiesta Bowl win over Oklahoma and the two are happily married today as a Sports Illustrated followup indicated recently. Minus sideline reporter Chris Myers who spoiled the surprise, Johnson earned major points for his ballsy move on national TV. Colt’s proposal was pretty smooth, but without footage I think I’ll have to give Johnson the nod. Does anyone have a video of this stadium scoreboard proposal or what?
