Texas coach Mack Brown says he didn't pull
quarterback Garrett Gilbert after his fifth interception against
Kansas State because he didn't want to signal that he was giving
Gilbert' third interception killed a scoring drive near the end
of the first half, and his fourth on the second play of the third
quarter set up a touchdown that put the Wildcats ahead 31-0. His
fifth came on Texas' next possession.
Brown says pulling Gilbert at that point would have crushed a
quarterback he still thinks has a lot of potential. He said that,
later in the game, he wanted Gilbert to finish a scoring drive in
the 39-14 loss.
Freshman Case McCoy is Gilbert's backup. He hasn't played since
the season opener.
