    I hate ESPN and their predictions

    Dont know if this has been posted already....but i dont know how much i agree with it but from a non biased party they aren't terribly off base but i know CPR will get the job done.

    Re: I hate ESPN and their predictions

    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

    Re: I hate ESPN and their predictions

    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...

    Re: I hate ESPN and their predictions

    I wonder if someone could put together CPRs 4 year win/loss totals vs. who has predicted him. I bet he would be +5-6 games.

    Why do we care what ESPN thinks? The game is played on the field.

    Re: I hate ESPN and their predictions

    What did they predict for us?
    That would really determine my hate level.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: I hate ESPN and their predictions

    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

    Re: I hate ESPN and their predictions

    We'll also finish 8th in the league in basketball too. And we were going to get destroyed by #2 OSU. Predictions are dumb. Gotta play the games

    Re: I hate ESPN and their predictions

    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.

    Re: I hate ESPN and their predictions

    Prediction people need to start adding "The Paul Rhoads" factor into their predictions. The guy is worth 1.35 upset wins and at least 2.3 even odd wins! My math is also made up tho

    How dare they disrespect us and pick us to drop so far in the standings from last year! What, we finished 9th last year? Well LOUD NOISES then.

    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.

    All 3 non-cons are a must every year if we want 6 wins any given year.
