    Re: ** College Football Season **

    If you're factoring in post-season performance/results, and there's obviously an argument to be made that that's dumb, much of their jumping is justified.

    I see the argument sure, but stepping back they aren't #3.

    They will probably be 4-6 to open next season

    They still gave up 45 points in a home game. And they still have 3 losses.

    That's not justification for a 9 to 3 kind of jump. When there are 2 loss teams ranked below them.

    Voters are dumb.

    Well I said OU and OSU should probably be above them. Who else would you put above them, if you're factoring in post-season?

    They're gonna have to find some kind of run game. But they should have the one of if not the best passing attack in the country.

    Re: ** College Football Season **

    Baker and Bob Stoops are both back so they are clearly a top 10 program.

    Notable 2017 road games for the Sooners, @Ohio State, @Baylor, @Ok State.

    I smell 2 losses from those 3 games.

    How is Baylor a notable road game?

    I think they win at tOSU this year and Bedlam is always a toss up, doesn't matter where it's played. If I were to pick now I would put them in next years playoff. I think Baker is going to be on mission next year and take the Heisman.


    God I fucking hate the Sooners.

    Re: ** College Football Season **

    Big XII is a puddle of ass. Ou will by far be the favorite next year to win the conference.


    Texas will initially be overrated because of Herman, but when that chucker we have at QB keep chucking, we'll fall back and then what's left? Ok State and that's it. TCU and Baylor, the new hot hands aren't really shit right now either. WVU? Idk, they may challenge OkSt for the runner up, but I don't see any way OU doesn't win the conference yet again next year.

    New HC Matt Rhule had success in Philly with Temple, I believe with an already talented roster and a Texas recruiting hotbed, Waco could be a dangerous trap game next season.

    Yeah I think we're looking at about a 9 win season next year. A lot of unknown with Grier coming in and we lost our best defensive player Nwachuku and #1 WR Gibson. But if Grier is good we could be good.

    The Pokes are gonna be good next year but I'm still thinking OU runs away with it, Pokes 2 and us 3.

    I'd love to get a crack at the B12 CG but that would mean we would play the Sooners in back to back weeks. Ugh.

    Re: ** College Football Season **

    When a Texas fan is unaware that their conference now has a championship game starting in 2017, it's either a sign of how bad Texas has been that they are unaware of developments at the top of the conference, or how the Big 12 is just so desperately flailing about that none of their programs' fans follow their latest nonsense.

    Could be either, but I had zero clue that the Big XII was having a CG next year.

    Ohio State shouldn't be a preseason top 5 team - they are losing too much.

    Are you saying this will be the preseason top 10 for next season in your opinion?

    Re: ** College Football Season **

    Florida State will be ahead of Clemson preseason. I think Penn State will be the top B1G team preseason. Oklahoma will be top 5.

    Alabama
    Florida State
    USC
    Oklahoma
    Penn State
    Ohio State

    ... and then other teams that I don't feel like ranking. Washington probably close to next.

    Fwiw, per Vegas Texas has better odds to win it all than PSU, Washington, and OK State.

    guess they think Texas will be better than OK State and that it'll be harder for PSU to get through Michigan and tOSU and for Washington to get through USC

    Rudolph and Washington coming back may say otherwise. OSU's receiving corps is stacked next year, all starters return.

    Again, it's stupid to think Texas has a better shot to win thr Big12. OSU returns just about everyone on offense, but will have some holes to fill on defense.

    i mean, i said it was stupid...but i get where Vegas is coming from. it's all about where the money goes and less about who they really think will win

    and 1 conference title in 20 years for OKState doesn't help their odds either when it comes to Vegas
