Jordan Shipley’s not perfect. Sure, he speaks to youth groups and visits sick kids at a children’s hospital and drops a pass once a month and goes treat-or-treating on Halloween. But he does have a flaw. When his more famous roommate is trying to get some shuteye, Shipley’s strumming away on his guitar. Even then, Colt McCoy’s pretty understanding. After all, the Texas quarterback joins in on the piano. Guitar is a passion of Shipley’s. He’s played since he was 8 and has become so obsessed with it, he rarely watches sports highlight shows anymore. He’s written eight original songs that are equal parts John Mayer, country music and alternative rock. Look for his big hit — "Falling” — at the top of the charts soon. "You ought to hear us,” McCoy said. "We’re pretty good.” Why wouldn’t they be? These two lifelong buddies are good at everything they try. McCoy was runner-up for the Heisman Trophy last year and a serious contender again. Shipley’s the most underrated wide receiver in college football and figures to leave as one of the top 10 receivers in Longhorns history. There’s a chance he could better his 89-catch total from 2008 and match Kwame Cavil as only the second Texas wideout to catch 100 balls in a season. Had he upped his scoring output by two touchdowns last year, he would have passed Roy Williams’ and Limas Sweed’s single-season school record of 12. "If I catch 30 balls and we win,” Shipley said, "that’s fine.” But he’d need to have the season of all seasons to replace Williams as Texas’ all-time receiver. Not likely that Shipley will nearly double his 20 career touchdowns and threaten Williams’ 36 scores. However, the Burnet senior does have one of the school’s six 1,000-yard seasons to his credit and might make it two if teammates Brandon Collins, James Kirkendoll and Malcolm Williams take the pressure off him and Texas finds a warm body at tight end. Shipley dropped no more than eight passes last year. Receivers coach Bobby Kennedy still raves about the inside streak pattern that Shipley ran in the Fiesta Bowl for a key completion. McCoy hadn’t thrown that route all year. Now, after deciding not to test his skills at the NFL level, Shipley will have one last opportunity to showcase himself. This is the last one, right, Jordan? Hey, if the NCAA allowed a seventh year, the 23-year-old conceded, "I might do it. I love it here.” It’s been mutual affection because the Longhorns have developed a love affair with the guy with the sure hands and great routes. Shipley was approved for a sixth season after becoming a poster boy for Obama’s health-care plan when he missed his first two years with knee and hamstring injuries. One mock draft listed Shipley as a second-round pick, whose marketability will be enhanced by his work on special teams.
