Place your bet...
Over at 23
Tough call b/c I think if he stays healthy, in this offense, Wood has a chance to be a pretty good QB, based on his raw potential and his apparent improvement in Spring. 22 would have placed him in the top 38th in the nation last year: http://espn.go.com/college-football/statistics/player/_/stat/passing/sort/passingTouchdowns
I think Tyler had 20 his senior year. Fales had 33 in this offense last year.
I will go over, barely. 23
Over, I think he hits 25 passing TDs and 3 rushing TDs. Our defense will still probably be pretty bad, so we'll get a lot of offensive possessions again. I think Connor will be the 4th best QB in the PAC-12 this year, and set us himself up be top QB for the PAC-12 in 2014, if Mariota and Hundley leave.
I'll take the under since Sefo is going to steal the job away.
Over. That's not even two per game on average. Especially after hearing MM's comments about stretching the field and going for the big play. This isn't an offense that's built to slog down the field and score a lot of touchdowns from two yards out.
Over. He finishes with 25 TDs through the air and four on the ground.
Pound it and launch it?
I will say push. 22 TDs would be a solid season.
That would be one of the best statistical sessions in Colorado history. Under
You have 45 touchdowns between Wood and Powell...I think you are a tad optimistic. That's 22.5ppg between them. I'd love to see it but that would be two historically great seasons from those two.
Based on last season, I predict under; and a td/int ratio < 1. :sad1:
I hope I'm wrong, but don't think I will be. This is going to be a very tough season for the whole team. We are at least a year from respectability.
Good point. In looking at SJSU's offense last year, Fales (QB - 33) and Eskridge (RB - 11) combined for 44 TDs combined or 25.6ppg (if my math is right :lol, SJSU's offense as a whole averaged 34.8ppg last year and I don't roughly a 20ppg improvement in one year. SJSU's leading WR Grigsby had 9 TDs last year, I expect PRich to have right around there, maybe a couple more since he will be our clear #1 target when he is healthy. After thinking about it, I think Powell has a better year on the ground but less TDs due to our offense being more passing centered but I still think Wood throws for ~25 (give or take two or three).
I expect our offense to score 27-28ppg this year due to having PRich back and a OC who knows what he is doing and has produced results in year one, I'm also pretty optimistic in Wood having a good season under the new coaching staff. Wood's confidence will either help or hurt the whole offense if he is seen as the team leader, which that's how it seems to be.
fify, not a believer, yet
What is this "TD" thing you talk about?
With all the changes at QB, I'm going under; Sefo or Jordan may play a bigger role on offense this year.
Over, and not by 1 or 2
Big vote of confidence from P-Rich. If P-Rich is buying into the guy, I think I can too.
Over. The Wood-PRich combo was looking pretty good in practice yesterday
Over with the number being 30 or more. I think he is going to have a breakout type season with this new offense.
Under...I would love to be wrong on that one.
I'm going under...but only for the reverse curse effect.
New O/U is 27 TD passes. Place your bet.
(Wood has 6 TD passes through two games)
I am not going to place a number on any of these until we know what is happening with our 12th game. If we don't have it, that changes everything. If we have it, and it is against a weaker team, that changes everything too.
