This isn’t the first time Romo and Witten have been spotted at a college basketball game together. They’ve attended numerous Duke and SMU games. But this is the first time they’ve been seen at a Texas game.
It’s particularly interesting that they were sitting with McCoy.
“I’m looking at the positive, the negatives were obvious,” Jones said. “You can’t win making those kinds of bad plays I’m talking about the turnovers and interceptions. On the other hand, for someone that had never played in a game, he did some really impressive things.
“There’s no question in my mind that he can ultimately play and win games as a quarterback in the NFL Kellen Moore can. There’s no question in my mind.

In three games last season, the 26 year old Moore completed 58.7 percent of his passes for 779 yards, four touchdowns and six interceptions.
McCoy, 29, has played six seasons in the league for Cleveland, San Francisco and Washington. He started four games for the Redskins in 2014. McCoy appeared in two games for Washington last season. In 35 career games, he’s thrown 26 touchdowns to 23 interceptions, posting a 78.9 passer rating.
