Five Reasons Garrett Gilbert Will Fail to Lead Texas on a 2010 BCS Run

Coming in as the most decorated high school quarterback the University of Texas has ever seen, Garrett Gilbert has some of the Longhorn faithful hoping for another title run. Even more have penned in UT for at least a BCS game.

I say the chances are slim, if any.

While the Texas defense will, as usual, be a formidable bunch—a bunch that will be the driving force behind many wins—at some point first-year starter Gilbert will have to take command of a contest.

Can he decipher a Oklahoma or Nebraska defense when Texas needs to grind out a score?

Can he gunsling with Texas Tech or TAMU when they start lighting up the boards like the Vegas strip?

I try to answer these questions and more in an attempt to show why I believe Texas quarterback Garrett Gilbert is at least one year away from the heights of BCS glory.
