Mack Brown is gonna start earning his money this week in Austin. This Longhorn team is most likely the worst team Mack has had since coming to UT. Last night there was no defense, hardly any offense and I’m not gonna talk about special teams or the lack there of.
5 picks thown by Gilbert. I’m not sure but I think it’s due mostly to the fact that he stares down his receivers. Thats how linemen time him, thats why with his arm, Gilbert can’t thread the needle. defense’s are just reading his eyes. Granted he’s a young quarterback and it’s not all his fault. If Gilbert had an offensive line that gave him time, he might be able to throw deep. It would also open up the run game. Gilbert averaged 10 yards per carry last night with just under 5 yards per pass. I didn’t see the whole game (caause there wasn’t much of a game to watch) but my guess is he had to scramble some of the time.
Where was the defense? Anybody? A good running quarterback is all it takes to beat the Longhorns? Holy Crap.
This UT defense has a few guys that will be playing on Sunday and we saw that against Nebraska. They haven’t shown up since. Where is the pride? The whole team needs to remember what logo is on the side of their helmet and realize that when you put it on, you’re a Longhorn and you have to play like one. Play with pride. Get angry and start pushing back. NO stupid penalties though.
