The analyst world has not been kind to the Texas Longhorns this offseason.
Fox College Football analyst Joel Klatt, however, is confident in Texas this fall.
“I think Texas could be really good. This is not the year you want that low key, tough, non-conference schedule because here’s what a schedule like that does — it puts an immense amount of pressure on the coaching staff and the players because everyone thinks based off of brands that they should just walk through those games,” Klatt said, per 247Sports.
Klatt continued, “So even if they struggle and when, people are going to be like, ‘What’s wrong with Texas?’ When you and I know that those are actually decently tough games, in particular for a guy in his first year.“
That has to count for something. Right?
