    Regular season expectations

    Hey guys, looking ahead I see we have 14 games left in the regular season. Looking at the schedule and how we have played so far, I believe we will go 11-3 down that stretch (losing at OSU, at Baylor home vs KU), leaving us with a 4 loss Big 12 season. I personally would be fine with that, but what say you? Am I being to conservative on my outlook or too aggressive?

    That's pretty aggressive. I'd be overjoyed if we ended the Big 12 season with 4 losses. I don't think we'll do it, though.

    I think you are being a little to aggressive! If we only lost four big 12 games then Fred would be National Coach of the Year. I think we will lose between 6-8 games

    Re: Regular season expectations

    I would about agree with that but I think ISU will beat KU at home and loose 3 of the 4 tough road games left at OU, OSU, BU, or KSU. I am not sure which one of those they win but I think they get one.

    Hilton Magic prevails this season. I frankly don't see us losing at home to anyone.

    ​I say that our crowd will not let us lose to KU @ Hilton but, we may stumble on the road so 4 losses seems okay.

    Re: Regular season expectations

    My bet:

    Split with:
    OU
    OSU
    KSU
    Baylor

    Lose to KU at home
    Lose 1 of WVU or UT on the road

    Beat
    Tech x2
    TCU
    Texas or WVU

    Puts the Clones at 11-7 by my estimations. Good for 22-11 overall and a 7-10 seed. Win two in KC and you could push a 6.

    As much as we make fun of the Big 10 for sucking at football, I'm glad we're not playing our basketball there this year. The Big 12 schedule looks pretty nice this year.

    I'd be happier than a pig in **** with an 11-3 record henceforth.

    Re: Regular season expectations

    It's tough to tell. Out of the road games at WVU, Texas, OU, OSU, K-State, and Baylor I assume a couple losses will happen there. We'll probably drop a random home game too but I don't think it will be against KU.

    3-5 losses the rest of the way in the regular season sounds right. No more than 5 for sure if the team remains healthy. There's just not enough teams in this league with the talent of ISU to lose many games honestly. I'll put our top 8 rotation against nearly anybody in the Big 12.

    Re: Regular season expectations

    At this point in time, going into every game, I expect ISU to win. Now, in the long term I don't expect us to run the table, but there are no games I expect ISU to lose.
