cbhsports 2020-2021 College Football Schedule Predictions 7:I’m being realistic with my hogs in 2020-2021

I’m a diehard Arkansas Razorback fan but I’m not going to put bias into this post. Can Sam Pittman do better than 2-10 in his first season as head coach? We will have to see, but let’s take a glimpse into it with my honest and realistic predictions for their 2020-2021 season.

UNC Forward Brooks to return for senior season (CBB News)

First, for all of you Arkansas fans out there (like me and I’m a North Carolina fan too), Eric Musselman was hired on April 7,2019 a year ago today. Also, I’m blogging this on April 7 not April 8 so its not a year after exactly but anyway let’s get into the college basketball news.

North Carolina Forward Garrison Brooks announced recently that he was returning for his senior season. Brooks I’m sure is hoping for a better outcome to next season than what happened during 2019-2020 for the Tar Heels. Brooks averaged almost seventeen points and eight and a half rebounds this past season. He adds some nice veteran leadership to what is going to be a talented North Carolina team next season.

Former five-star recruit and Arizona Freshman Guard Nico Mannion announced he is entering the 2020 NBA Draft. Mannion averaged fourteen points per game and five assists per game in his lone season in Tucson.

On SportsCenter on Tuesday, what usually would be the College Basketball Awards in Los Angeles, awards were given out. The Bob Cousy Point Guard of the Year Award was awarded to Oregon’s Payton Pritchard who averaged 20.5 points per game and 5.5 assists. Seton Hall’s Myles Powell won the Jerry West Shooting Guard of Year Award by averaging 21 points per game, 4.3 rebounds per game, and 2.9 assists per game. Villanova Small Forward Saddiq Bey won the Julius Erving Small Forward of the Year by averaging 16.1 points per game, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.4 assists. Dayton’s Obi Toppin received the Karl Malone Power Forward of the Year by averaging 20 points per game, 7.5 rebounds per game, and 2.2 assists per game. Iowa’s Luka Garza won the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Center of the Year by averaging 23.9 points per game, 9.8 rebounds per game, and 1.8 blocks per game.

Maryland Sophomore big man Jalen Smith announced he is entering the 2020 NBA Draft. He averaged 15.5 points per game and 10.5 rebounds per game as a sophomore.

Duke Freshman Guard Cassius Stanley is entering the 2020 NBA Draft. He averaged almost thirteen points per game and almost five rebounds per game in his lone season in Durham.

UCLA Junior Forward Chris Smith announced he was entering the 2020 NBA Draft. During his third season in Los Angeles he averaged thirteen points per game and five and a half rebounds per game.

Big 12 College Football SEC

What an SEC-Big 12 challenge in football would look like

What if we took a week during the college football season to have teams from the SEC play a team with the same standing a year ago in the Big 12 like in college basketball and have them play during a week of primarily non-conference games. Here’s what it would look like:

Oklahoma at. LSU
We are going to rotate who gets home field advantage but the reigning national champs have to start it with home field in a rematch of the CFP Semifinal.

Alabama at. Baylor
Will moving on from Matt Rhule do Baylor any favors? I don’t think so. Alabama would defintely be favored in this game.

Texas at. Florida
A match up of blue bloods in the swamp will be a defensive battle.

Auburn at. Oklahoma State
Auburn would have a great chance in this game to notch a key non-conference win in this one.

Kansas State at. Tennessee
This would be a fun game between two fairly new head coaches at the FBS level.

Texas A&M at. Iowa State
In a match up of high powered offenses, who would get the defensive stop down the stretch to break the game open.

West Virginia at. South Carolina
Two different offenses collide in an unusual match up.

Kentucky at. TCU
With a receiver at QB, Kentucky would have to find out a way to get the ball past a pretty good horned frogs defense.

Texas Tech at. Mississippi State
New Mississippi State Head Coach Mike Leach faces his former team, Texas Tech.

Ole Miss at. Kansas
Ole Miss is more talented than Kansas, but the rebels do face an old enemy in Kansas Head Coach Les Miles.

Left Out:Arkansas, Missouri, Vanderbilt
