    Are we happy if we go 1-2 vs. TX, Baylor, and MU?

    seems like 1 victory would be all we can ask for.

    Realistically optimistically, I think we can come out 2-1.

    If we go 1-2, it's not the end of the world.

    0-3 is not godawful, but it would be a big blow.

    I think that is acceptable, but I am thinking 2-1 with W's over TX and MU.... Baylor will be closer then most think with the way Rennie tore us up in the not so distant past..... I think mobile QB's may be out pain point this year, even the UCONN #2 looked pretty unstoppable at times.....
    I know McCoy and Franklin have this ability too, but I see the play making way more from RG3...

    I would be happy with 6-0.

    These are all winnable games.

    Id say that we will be 1-2 with a win over TX, it is definitely possible to be 2-1 with wins over TX & Mizzou.

    I wouldnt be completely shocked to see 3-0. It will take ALOT of great play and a big game against RGIII. Gosh I hate road games against Big 12 teams...

    Winnable I like and with our team showing that they know what they need to do to win a game I like our chances. This team simply never quits and our QB has proven his worth in the 4th qtr. Previous years teams would have found ways to lose all three of our first games and to see us pull them out gives me hope.

    I would take 1 win, be very happy with 2 wins, and down right giddy with 3 wins.

    I think every fan base in America should ask their team to win every game! The traditional programs believe it, and in turn, their talent and coaches play up to those expectations. Even programs with less talent and more tradition can sometimes play up to those expectations. Wouldn't it be great if our fan base actually believed we could have a dream season this year? I would imagine it could do great things to the confidence of our players.

    We need to go 2-1 out of that. Enough of the 5 and 6 win talk. I want 7 or 8. Yes, i'm getting greedy.
