Easily one of this season's saddest stories if that of Houston QB Case Keenum. He was a Heisman candidate who was going to lead the Cougars to a CUSA title, and maybe flirt with the BCS as well. But he suffered a season-ending knee injury in the third game of the season. He is scheduled to have surgery today.
He could apply to the NCAA for a medical hardship and receive an additional year of eligibility, but that could be hard to get. Or he could have played his last game and see what happens with the NFL.
One NFL scout told me he wasn't too high on Keenum because "he's too short."
My guess is that CK leaves for the NFL. If he does, good luck. He did an awful lot at Houston, and he deserves a better finish than watching games on crutches.
