Kirk Herbstreit has actually really done it now. Appearing on ESPN’s College Football podcast to sneak peek the upcoming season, Herbstreit forecasted that # 10 Texas will win the Big 12 in the year 2019. You can hear Herbie’s strong forecast around the 31:50-mark of the podcast.
For some viewpoint on how outrageous this pick is, absolutely no of CBS Sports’ experts, selected Texas to win the Big 12. Everyone there had the Longhorns 2nd or 3rd.
ESPN’s Power Index has Oklahoma # 6 in the nation with Texas means down at # 26, a single area ahead of Iowa State, with Baylor a few areas back at # 30. What’s more, the forecasted W-L documents would certainly have Texas finishing 4th.
Texas plays # 6 LSU in the 2nd week of the period and after that faces Big 12 favorite (# 4) Oklahoma, and also Heisman enthusiastic Jalen Hurts, on October 12th. If they can surpass those extremely challenging examinations, they must be in wonderful setting to make the CFB Playoff like Herbstreit believes they will. If not, it’s just one more freezing cool take to be trotted out and also used as evidence that Herbstreit is just a human presuming what a few teams of university children will certainly accomplish over the next couple of months.
