Time for a new thread!

Would y'all rather continue the weekly new thread or keep one continuous running season thread?

Remember, we support a CFB Smack-free TBH!

Using the CFB professors analytics.


He had Texas pegged at 5-7 with his math/analytics last season. Interested in seeing how this plays out.

Sic'Em but that's about all I've got. Lack of depth on the lines is going to be interesting.

Will be interesting to see how both sides of the ball are played with the new staff in charge.

Man, that's way too optimistic for my 'Pokes. Yea, they've got the offense, but too many holes/unknowns on defense (I think) to run the table.

I picked the Pokes to win the conference regular season (but, I have them losing 1 to Texas rebounding from a loss in Dallas), a rematch in the title game is a tough call versus OU, KState or WV is what I'm thinking.

I think OU struggles more than not and it will likely show more in the next few years versus this season. They'll drop 2 or more games.

I believe y'all are headed in the right sight direction with that HC and staff.

I think WVU is not going to be average at best this season. They have a ton to replace. Morgantown is quite the advantage, but I would be completely shocked if they make the top 2.


But, I'm with you on OSU winning the conference. Bedlam could be one for the ages this year with everything on the line!

The defense has me thinking they'll be solid in conference play and the QB transfer is intriguing. WV is my wild card.

Defense will be a LOT bigger. A little bit thin at DE with Bowen out for the year.

OL will be drastically better. There will be a little more effort geared towards running the football, but in all reality it's going to come down to QB play(which my expectations are pretty low right now). If Hill can't get it done, that brings a true freshman into play and I think we all know how that will go.

Also, apparently the kicking problem has not been solved. Four freakin' kickers on campus and none of them are even average.

If Hill runs the offense, I think 9-3 is fairly accurate.

Go Gators! Heading to Jerry World to open the season vs. Big Blue.

And for the WV guys- Will Grier is the real deal. He's going to light it up this year, esp with the pass defenses in the Big12. Hated when Florida lost him and we still haven't recovered at the QB position.

With Hill running the offense, I think they drop games against the Pokes, Sooners and The Wiz with a couple to close to call against Arkansas and Texas.
