2018 Schedule (Conference games not in order)
NY6 Bowl Game
2019 Schedule (Conference games not in order)
NY6 Bowl Game
College Football Playoffs
We shouldn’t expect anything less than undefeated for the 2018 season. Rice is Rice. Texas Tech is Texas Tech. Arizona will be our biggest out of conference threat, but I think we can beat em. If we can stop Flowers, we can stop Tate. We go undefeated here, we win the AAC Championship, we win the NY6 Bowl Game, and sorry coogfans, we don’t make the playoffs. However, we do end up ranked top 10 in the AP. We start the 2019 season against Oklahoma. We play TBA, and then Washington State after that. This is all assuming OU and Washington St are both ranked, which they should. We should be 5-0 assuming we play below average TBA OOC games. We start and finish the 2019 conference games undefeated, we win the AAC, and we win the NY6 bowl game, and BAM. We make the playoffs because we have an undeniable resume for playoffs for a G5 team.
2018 is the last year we have this guy. If we win the NY6 bowl game, hopefully we find another 4 or 5 star to take his place considering how much of an impact he’s had for us. An undefeated season, and an NY6 bowl game should help recruiting big time to find a replacement. Now speaking of recruiting…
There is no doubt that we will easily get top rated recruits given the above scenarios. We are already a recruiting powerhouse given our circumstances. We are only going up from here if we continue to win and win. 4 stars and 5 stars want to play in the NFL, and if they get a chance to play for the best G5 team, they will dominate other G5 teams.
Power 5 Candidacy
There’s no chance we get an invite to any P5 conference before GOR dates. Therefore, we need to prove to the NCAA that we can hang with the big boys. Even if we don’t win the College Football Championship, to even make the playoffs would be a huge deal for us. 2023 is right around the corner from 2019. If we accomplish want we all want accomplished, we will continue to be a dominate force all the way through realignments.
Risk Scheduling Out of Conference Games
2018 will be the last year we will ever play a highly marketed team like Oklahoma before post-season. Therefore, we have to take advantage and win that game. If we dominate 2018 and 2019, then P5 teams aren’t going to want to play or schedule future games with us. Yeah we play Washington State, Kansas, Vanderbilt and Goergia Southern in the 20’s, but those aren’t teams that have huge markets in the south like OU.
This is all me just talking out of my ass and I could probably think of more bullet points to add, but here’s all I have for now.
