Instead of Throwing It All Away, Brennan Now Throwing for Records

Colt Brennan, the quarterback for the University of Hawaii, is on the verge of setting several passing records in the Warriors' upcoming bowl game.

It appeared he had thrown away any chance for success on January 28, 2004, when, during his freshman year at the University of Colorado, he entered a coed's dorm room uninvited. That eventually led to him spending seven days in prison and even longer in college football purgatory.

Brennan was kicked off the Colorado football team and had a hard time finding any other schools willing to give him an opportunity to play. Hawaii Coach June Jones gave him a shot, requiring him to start out as a walk-on.

The result will be a few lines in the NCAA Record Book with Brennan's name on them.
