Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. Today marks the beginning of the FBS football season. The longest offseason in memory is finally over. Football is here, and at the time I write this, the Baylor Bears are just under 36 hours away from taking the field in their first game of the season. If there isn’t a twinkle in your eye and a spring in your step today, then I don’t know what I can do to help you. How about a podcast?
Our tradition has been to have Brian Ethridge join us for the annual season predictions show (tradition in that it happened in two out of two years prior to this one), but Brian was otherwise unavailable. Colt Barber, also of Bears Truth and 247 Sports, graciously agreed to join us and I’m thrilled he did. He was an excellent guest! In a surprise move, Prashanth Francis, M.D. was also able to hop on and join us for the predictions show! I’m thrilled that he was, because a season predictions show wouldn’t be the same without him.
Given the constricted timeline to get this show out before the SMU game, we altered our normal multi-person recording, so I apologize for any loss of audio quality.
We’re talking our season predictions in this show. How do the Bears fare? Do they win the Big 12? Do they go to the playoff? Do I predict losses or do I revert to my tried-and-almost-true optimism? Does Prashanth finally predict that we make it to a bowl game? Find out by listening!
We also hit some other predictions and tackle some of the ones you listeners gave us. Thank you for those! If we didn’t get to yours, I apologize. We ran about an hour and a half on this one, and in the end Mark’s battery died right at the end.
