.,..* PF: ^- ^^ t In one weekend, Gardere became the most celebrated player since Eric Met- calf. He was labeled " Peter the Great, " " Saint Peter, " a savior and a legend. " I wouldn ' t call myself a savior. Without the linemen, backfield and receivers we wouldn ' t have an offense, " Gardere said. Gardere ' s heroics didn ' t end against Oklahoma. The following week in Ar- kansas he directed a win over the Ra- zorbacks, completing 16 out of 20 pass- es for 247 yards and one 61 -yard touchdown. Unfortunately, Gardere had some difficulties maintaining his high level of performance. In the Houston game, he suffered a bruised shoulder. Although he started against the TCU Horned Frogs, his performance was less than impressive, as he completed 9 of 16 passes for only 21 yards. He was even- tually replaced by Donovan Forbes, who rallied Texas to a 31-17 come- from-behind victory. In the week preceding the Baylor game, the team was in the midst of a mild quarterback controversy. Forbes, who was honored as the Most Outstand- ing Southwest Offensive Player of the Week, was being considered as a start- er. However, Gardere eventually start- ed, and threw an errant pass that was intercepted and run back for a Baylor touchdown. Forbes, who later replaced Gardere, also had a pass intercepted for a touchdown. Baylor ' s 50-7 march over Texas was the lowest point in the Long- horns ' season. Besides the shoulder injury and the Baylor game, Gardere had a successful if not a productive year. He completed 58 percent of his passes for more than 1500 yards passing, the most ever for a UT freshman quarterback. With one year under his belt, Gardere would be expected to lead a much improved and experienced team in 1990. Johnny Walker, said he believed time was all Gardere needed. " For a freshman quar- terback, he ' s done well, " Walker said. " He ' s become a leader. He just needs more experience.
