2017 schedule

Recommended Posts

If you look at Texas schedule you have 4 games each month for 3 months also Sept & Oct each month has 1 Marquee game away from DKR.

September Texas has to be no worse than 3-1. weakest opening 4 games in some time (Maryland,San Jose & Iowa st) but USC is best team Texas has played non conference since Ohio St 2005-06.

October is the key with ou in Dallas and home games with Kstate & Osu road game at baylor. 3-1 record here and Horns bowl destination improves.

November has road games at Tcu & Wvu Texas needs at least split here to have legit chance at 8 wins. home games with Kansas & Tech.

if Herman can get 9 wins he will sign top 3 recruiting class for 2018

I think 3-1 in Sept is completely doable. But I am just hoping we can stay on the field with USC. They were a very good team at the end of the year last year.

 

Agree, October is crucial. We beat OU, IMO. But OSU could be a problem. I think we'll beat KSU but it will be a dogfight.

 

WVU strikes me as a team we really should be talking more about. That will be a very difficult game. I think we beat TCU, but again, it will be a dogfight.

 

Notice the trend I'm showing you – winning dogfights. I think Herman's attention to detail gets us over that hump.

 

Kansas and Tech need to be statement games. Like 55-14 type statements. Beat the teams you're supposed to beat. And beat them badly.

 

IMO, we get to 10 wins. The 10th may come in a bowl.
