Golfweek's Asher Wildman looks ahead to the spring season in college golf, with plenty of questions that will need to be answered on the men's and women's sides.

Can Texas' men keep it up?

With the way the fall season ended for Texas, it will be interesting to see if the Longhorns can continue to look unbeatable. Texas won its last three events by an average of 20.6 strokes. With the top two players in the game - Dylan Frittelli and Jordan Spieth - just how good is head coach John Fields' team?

Can Vanderbilt produce a more exciting women's national championship?

At times, last year’s women's national championship at Traditions Golf Club in Bryan, Texas, was less than exciting. Chalk it up to a course layout that covered a lot of ground and few opportunities for crowds to get excited about women’s golf. After the Mason Rudolph Fall Preview at Legends Club, however, it seems that won’t be a problem this year. The Franklin, Tenn., layout is viewer-friendly, and Vanderbilt head coach Greg Allen seems serious about drumming up some excitement for this year’s championship. We’ll see if he delivers.
