    Can ISU beat Texas next year with Gilbert as QB?

    Honest question... Gilbert does not look good in this game. Can ISU beat Texas next season?

    They'll still be better than us at every single position - including QB.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    It will still be (arguably) our toughest game next year.

    Let's see....on the road....we can't cover receivers...we don't have a pass rush...I'd say he won't struggle much.

    In another thread someone said it is "well established" that players read this website. I wonder why a post like this?


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Re: Can ISU beat Texas next year with Gilbert as QB?

    Depending on QB at TX and OU, we face 4 potential Top 10 teams next year (Iowa, Nebraska, Texas & Oklahoma) and none of them will be winnable without a LOT of miraculous growth.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    You're throwing a QB into the biggest game of the year, who happens to be a freshman. He has virtually no chance to look good. From what I've seen, he's not too bad. I prefer him to how Landry Jones looked for most of the season.

    They lose a lot, but not enough.

    I said to a co-worker yesterday (all are UT alumni), I'd be EXTREMELY happy if we could have the ball in the 4th quarter with a chance to tie or go ahead.

    Socking one of the Big XII South teams in the mouth would be a HUGE accomplishment.
