There's a reason Texas quarterback Garrett
Gilbert has only six touchdown passes in eight games: his receivers
keep dropping them.
They drop long passes, short passes and medium ones, too.
Long gone are the days of record-setting receivers Jordan
Shipley and Quan Cosby catching everything Colt McCoy threw their
way. Gilbert has been saddled with a group that treats the ball
like it's radioactive.
It's a big problem Texas (4-4, 2-3 Big 12) would like to fix
when the Longhorns play Saturday night at Kansas State (5-3, 2-3).
The Longhorns have lost four of their last five games.
