C-USA coaches think he does
Case Keenum's big comeback attempt, which we chronicled as spring practice began in April, is apparently destined for success if the coaches of COnference USA are right.

They chose the UH quarterback as pre-season Offensive Player of the Year as part of the media days.

In one sense, it's an easy pick -- Keenum was the 2009 C-USA MVP. On the other hand, he's coming back from a devastating injury, and a lot remains to be seen.

Six other Coogs made one of the pre-season first-team all-stars, as did Rice punter Kyle Martens:
