2016 Texas Football Predictions

Postby edavis3 on Thu Sep 01, 2016 6:48 am

I have tried and tried to find more wins but every time I look over the schedule I come back to 5-7.

Wins: UTEP, Iowa State, K-State, Baylor and Kansas.

I'm not even completely sold on those 5.

I'm the first person that would love to be completely wrong on this. Obviously, we will learn a lot Sunday. What are your predictions?

Whoaaaa EDavis coming out of Internet retirement.

I'm going with the old Cowboys mantra of 6-6. Not sure what the 6 wins will be though. I think the only obvious wins are UTEP and KU. I think the only obvious losses are ND and TCU. I'm sure we'll win some game we have no business winning, and by that same token we'll have a totally unexplainable loss too. Anything in between those two wins and those two losses wouldn't be a total shocker to me.

I don't like playing the prediction game, but this is pretty similar to what I am thinking.

I'm totally the other way from last year.

I got them 10-3 after winning a bowl game.

No idea where to put the mark now. I don't think there's any game we can't win on the schedule. The conference looks very weak. I'm sure we'll drop a couple along the way due to youth at QB and all these penalties are going to bite us in the ass at some point too. Feel way better about things than I did 2 weeks ago though, partly because the team looks better than I thought, but also because the schedule doesn't looks nearly as rough now.

IT hinting that BJM is the new defensive playcaller. So another staff member being "demoted"? When are we going to maybe call the guy who made all these hires onto the carpet?

I would be surprised if that were the case. BJM has never called plays before.

And Vance Bedford has a fine resume. I don't recall anybody on this site or others criticizing that hire.

They're saying there was an offseason rift between Bedford and Strong. Supposedly Bedford is frustrated by the new practice flow.

Who knows. Just saying you'd think you'd have this stuff ironed out and not be having to make these changes 3 games into a make or break season for your job.

Well he is making the change (if there is a change) because it is perceived to be a make or break season, no?

If he was guaranteed another year or two I think they just let the talent they have grow up together and get some experience, with some personnel changes here and there. They would just take their lumps as they installed the more complex scheme.

Bedford is a figurehead. This has always been Strong's defense.

So sounds like Bedford is still the play caller as of now. Reports sound like we're switching to more of a 3-4 base look with Hager and Roach/Hughes playing OLB. Also saying Vaccaro and Jones in as the starting safety's.

Love Jones getting in the lineup more. But Vaccaro? What the hell is wrong with Deshon Elliot? You hear every year that this is the year the light switch flips and he become a mainstay, but he continues to be stuck behind less talented guys.
