texas alabama i think...i know the numbers werent great and his team lost, but the kid showed skills....perfect pass to shipley on 1st td....considering he is a true freshman thrust into the most pressure packed game you could put a guy in, i think he projects as a definete prospect...

I agree. He threw a few strikes, one that was dropped in the Endzone. He threw some terrible picks, but that should lessen with first team reps and experience. He looked a few inches taller than Mccoy on the sideline as well.

When you consider he is a true freshman unexpectedly playing in the National Championship game against one of the best defenses in the country, I think he showed enough that Longhorn fans should feel comfortable moving into next season.

Agreed. I was going for Alabama, but I was pulling for this kid.

Oh, he's going to be great, I just hope they don't force him to be something is isn't: a runner. Ever since VY they try to make everyone be like him. Other than he and Tebow, the spread doesn't really win big games because it kills the running game. When you have your QB doing it you have what happened last night. Gilbert is probably the best pure passing prospect Texas has ever had.
No one was impressed by Houston? he played very well, as he has all season. Undersized for a DT but could transition to a good 3-4 end for rotation.
The freaky thing is, I remember watching his dad Gale play QB for Cal in the early 80's. In fact, he was the starter in the Big Game against Stanford in 1982 that ended with "The Play."

Damn, I'm old.

the player that jumped off the screen for me was #2 for Texas, Kindle. Amazing speed for a guy his size. He is a freak. I like Julio Jones too but he didn't do much in that game because they didn't throw at all.

I think Kindle has a chance to be a great 3-4 OLB in the NFL. From a numbers standpoint, some guys don't really break out in college for whatever reason...they have all the tools, but they just don't put up the big stats year after year. If Kindle gets with the right team and they coach him up and use his skills properly, he could be a monster pass rusher off the edge.

If, however, he gets with a team that just throws him in the fire and expects him to produce immediately, he'll really struggle and might eventually flame out. He has a real unique skill-set, but it's obvious that he's very raw and doesn't play with a lot of technique. IMO, he just seems to be one of those guys that needs patience and a good structure around him to really reach his full potential (see Ahmad Brooks).

Holy crap . . . he's Gale Gilbert's kid? I could have done without hearing that . . . . . . feeling VERY old now.
The major problem with Kindle is his off the field issues. He likes the sauce.

I wonder how much of a raise Texas alumni will give Gilbert to keep him as their starting QB next year.
The guy on Texas I WOULDN'T want is that receiver, Williams. What a douche! Couldn't catch the flu if you injected him with it! Aside from the unfortunate interceptions, Gilbert's stats would have been about 4 or 5 receptions better if not for dropped balls, at least 3 by Williams! Maybe he's been good the rest of the season, but he sure chose an inopportune time to suck!
