Reality Bites, Sets In for 2016 Longhorns

The fantastical backdrop of a potential “Shock the Nation” tour for the Texas Longhorns in 2016 may have come crashing down this past Saturday night. First, the Cal Bears took a big bite of beef in a 50-43 late night victory. That came on the heels of very poor evening results for the prior two Longhorns opponents. Not only did Texas lose as 7-point favorites to Cal Notre Dame lost as TD home favorites to Michigan State...

No Miner Nuisance, Now Pack Your Bags for Berkeley...

We continue our case study of the Texas Longhorns this week with a brief review of their 41-7 blowout of UTEP this past Saturday night, and a look ahead to Saturday’s trip to California. That battle in Berkeley will be the first road game for true freshman quarterback Shane Buechele and many other youngsters…while also being a revenge game from last year’s 45-44 home loss for upperclassmen. Those bags will stay packed...

Betting Big: Big 12 Week 2 Preview

SMU Mustangs @Baylor Bears (-32, O/U 76) This is a strange matchup, because thanks to Baylor’s offseason of incredible upheaval it’s hard to get a read on just what the Bears are going to be capable of this year.  On the one hand, the Bears were a healthy QB away from at least a share of the Big 12 title (though you could say the same for TCU) and the recruiting has been top tier for the past 5 years.  On the...

Texas Strong…and Texas Fast!

We’ve decided to do a season-long statistical “case study” of the 2016 Texas Longhorns. Heading into the new campaign, they were arguably facing the most “volatile” outlook of any team in the country. The downside was obvious. If the team didn’t produce, head coach Charlie Strong would have been shown the door and considered a failure after three years at the helm (The Horns were 11-14 under Strong after two seasons). But a...

Betting Big: Big 12 Week 1 Preview

The curtain is going up on an interesting group of games in the Big 12 this week, with 3 cross P5 clashes and Oklahoma taking a much anticipated trip to the reigning king of the G5 (and Big 12 hopeful) Houston mixed in with the usual cupcake carousel that makes up week 1.  We don’t fill up on cupcakes though, so let’s focus on the meat of this weekend’s offerings. Kansas State Wildcats @ Stanford...

Move To Big 12 Means Increased Travel Expenses for...

Move To Big 12 Means Increased Travel Expenses for West Virginia When West Virginia moved from the Big East to the Big 12, the team expected the move to increase their national profile because the Big East had been weakened due to the departure of the best teams in the conference, and the Big 12 has been one of the top conferences in the country for some time. Since their move, the Mountaineers have spent significantly more...

National Semifinal Stat Preview: Oklahoma vs Clems...

National Semifinal #1: Oklahoma vs. Clemson in the Orange Bowl Unfortunately, it’s the nature of college football this season that it’s going to be very tough to pin down truly accurate stat projections for the major postseason matchups. There wasn’t much meaningful interconnectivity before league play began. Most highly regarded teams (other than Alabama) didn’t have particularly tough conference slates. Fans and...
