Very true, because Perriloux was it. It took the players going in during summer workouts and telling Mack, Colt was the real deal.
It's clear that I've been conversing with someone "special". Noted.
Mornin' to you too, sweetness! We forgot Jevan Snead transferring to Ol Miss. And Luck and Griffin came out of HS the year before Gilbert. At the time our qb depth chart was Colt, Snead, Sherrod, and Kinne, with Gilbert in the wings (didn't he commit to us as a junior?). Hard to blame the coaches for not taking a chance on Griffin as a qb. His offer list included such powerhouses as Tulsa, Houston, and Baylor.. Luck is a different story. Don't know what happened there.
Snead was way before Gilbert.
When you're right, you're right. Even a blind hog,,,,,,,,,,,no I won't go there. :)
Case McCoy. He is the only answer—today. He made an ass out of himself; he jeopardized his team and teammates. Is there a man in there of just a punk kid? He has a chance to redeem himself few who screw up this badly rarely ever get. He can show his parents, his brother, his teammates, his coaches and even we fans that he is more than we think. If he’s a real McCoy, he has a chance to prove it. I for one hope he is called upon and I pray he puts on a show.
Oddly enough, it happens more than you'd think. I got plenty of acorns. Want some?
Is that guy seriously comparing Ash to Gilbert now? I hate our fanbase sometimes. Actually, a lot of times.
No thanks, my cup runneth over.
My prediction is that McCoy will be in by the BYU game. I expect next season to be another QB roller coaster quite frankly. Unless Mack gets frustrated and decides to roll the dice full-time with Case.
And it won't be due to a large lead or injury. Maybe "injury", but not injury. Ok, that was uncalled for.
But anyway its fair game for me to make a prediction. Do you care to?
With the QBs you guys have on campus now, if you cant run the ball, it will look a lot like last year with Ash or McCoy. Brewer needs to be the guy, but we will see what the spring game shows. They should allow Ash to do more than throw a few screens this year.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
BS is not comparing Ash to Gilbert. Who are you referring to?
Pretty certain he's referring to browncounty's following post:
"I'll go ahead and predict another QB quagmire by 3rd quarter of the BYU game.
2nd game of the season - BYU. The 2011 exit for Garrett Gilbert.
And now 2013 approaches. 2nd game of the season - BYU. Exit for Ash?
Because we know New Mexico State is not going to reveal anything."
I actually thought he was talking about me, so naturally I threw you under the bus.
Were you in a coma during 2010?
Case isn't good. But he is light years better than Gilbert.
Case is fine for a college backup. That's all he should be though. Lets put it this way, I'd rather him ash backup than Matt Nordgren.
Damn Black, just when I think we are on completely different wave lengths then you post this. This is my point also. I hope you are right about Brewer, although we have very little to go on. I'm hoping the first week was just discipline and seeing what the other kids can do against real college players. The coaches have to see what they have got. Brewer needs to assert himself if he is going to be the backup by the middle of next season and challenging Ash for playing time. Make that the third game. I have no idea wheather he is capable of doing it, but if Texas is going to fix the QB problem something like this has to happen. I hope Brewer is not a QB at ARK ST next year.

Give me Nordgren any day.
Matt Nordgren recovers his own fumble and scores against Baylor in 2005
It was a great read and catch. +1 for the clip
One of my favorite LH plays of all time! I remember him getting up with a big smile on his face knowing that he just became a one-play legend.
