    I project us beating Baylor and Iowa also.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Re: CFN has us going...

    I am really shocked they have us beating A&M. Looking at that schedule its going to be really tough to get back to a bowl game. I really think that if we can beat Iowa it might give us the momentum we need to establish some swagger and pull off a few upsets.

    Re: CFN has us going...

    I think 5-7 to 7-5 depending on injuries and momentum

    I agree with this, but I'll toss in 4-8 as a so-called worst case scenario. 4 to 7 wins is the range I wouldn't be at all surprised with. Once you talk about 3-9 or worse, and 8-4 or better, is when I just don't see it happening.

    A 6 win season would be absolutely tremendous.

    Re: CFN has us going...

    Right now, with all the question marks on offense 4 wins is a fair assumption. If guys come along at the skill positions on offense I could see pusing for a bowl, but when you think about the fact that we only return a couple guys who had any impact on offense last year, and play a pretty tough schedule, you can see where they're coming from.

    Based on what we've seen out of our offense so far with Tiller running it, I can definitely see 3-9 or worse if he is the starter and not improved dramatically from last year.

    If we can get average QB play, then I don't think a bowl game is out of the question. Better than average QB play and I would be disappointed if we don't make a bowl.

    I think there are many reasons to expect the defense to be better, so it really hinges on whether the offense can finally make an impact. With so much change on the offense, however, it's really questionable whether that will happen.

    Re: CFN has us going...

    CFN sucks annually. Last year they picked OKSt to be the most disappointing team and Colorado to be the most surprising. And they had KU winning 5 games and us winning 4.

    I think you need to learn how to paste links. And all I can think of with that Michael Bolton avatar is Office Space the movie...

    Re: CFN has us going...

    Sorry to be a pessimist. I'd be pleasantly surprised by four wins and out-and-out shocked by anything more than that. In no way a reflection of my feelings about CPR or the team. Quite honestly I think this will be CPR's best team yet, but that schedule is so awful I don't think it's going to show up in W-L record.
