It's always been a favorite New Year's tradition of mine to make predictions for the upcoming year. Sometimes these are based on reason, but more often are rather baseless. In the spirit of Kirk Bohls' uberprescient football predictions linked on the main page this week, let's post our guesses as to what will befall each Longhorn team in '07.
I'll get the ball rolling.
Basketball: Kevin Durant will continue to dazzle but will cool off just before the tourney. The Horns are a 4-seed that wins the first 2 handily but drops the ball in the Sweet 16 round to the #1 seed, let's say UCLA.
Football: Horns go 10-2. Colt manages to stay healthy and is a Heisman finalist, rising above the weak SOS and winning games in spite of an even worse defense. We draw an exciting matchup in the Fiesta and dismantle some team like Notre Dame. All will be happy.
