Frankly, I don't mind it. Since I'm not an Insider I can only see Texas, and am therefore forced to make up the rest of the list. I think people will be surprised who he picked to finish second in my head...
they said with the minimal amount of returning starters and also not finishing in top 75 in defense along with losing our best defensive players were in trouble because of the youth and that under CPR we have shown to be a giant killer but not a serious contender.....i think we are on the verge of being a serious contender though
I wont begrudge anyone for a poor prediction. Gotta earn respect, and we havent really shown anything to the national crowd recently besides one game (which nationally, most would view as a fluke), and we've shown plenty of other awful performances (tulsa bowl game, for example) to even that out.
I cant recall the last time we were "predicted" to finish with 6 wins. So we have that in our favor. I also think winning all 3 non-conf games is a must this year.
Projected finish: 3-9 Win total range: 2-10 to 5-7 Chance to win Big 12: 0 percent
I don't see how they would put 5-7 as the "best" case. UNI, Tulsa, Iowa, Baylor, Kansas, and WVU would be six wins. And you don't need cardinal tinted glasses to think that we have a legitimate chance to win all of those games.
