    Nice work, as always, CW. I think 6-6 would be perfectly reasonable this year. There are just too many question marks at important positions, especially DL, to really feel safe about much else. I especially like the KSU prediction, and you are right, ISU is due in Farmageddon.

    If you offered me a 6-6 season with this youth and schedule, I would sign up for it right now. I think 2-1 in non-conference (L @ Tulsa) and 2 conference wins (Kansas and either WVU/KSU but not both). Defensive line and depth at LB scare me. I think our O is better than last season but I can't see how our D is as good.

    I think this team can and will win 7 games. The ones Chris listed and I think ISU surprises TCU at home. I think there will be a lot of hype around this team going into 2014.

    Looks similar to mine. Though I have us losing to Kansas State and going 5-7.

    Maybe I have low expectations, but anytime Iowa State makes a bowl, I'm perfectly satisfied. Bring on 6+ wins!

    Haha. Actually, I meant to have Iowa listed as a tweener. Sorry to ruin in. That was a misprint on my part.

    More on the Iowa game...

    I originally had them as a "likely win" but changed it last minute. That is the strongest tweener for Iowa State IMO, but that rivalry is a toss up. We all know it. Had to go tweener for that one.

    6 wins would be a small miracle. I can see them wining as little as 3 games this year.

    Re: Monday Musings: Game-by-game predictions for 2013

    I can't quite decide what to think about this season. For some reason I feel like 4 wins is the mark this year. Maybe I am just subconsciously setting the bar low to avoid a let down, but we lost so many important pieces this year that I am not overly optimistic. The biggest thing I took for Chris's piece is that we have a grand total of 2 "should win" games, one of which is on the road to a team that handled us a few months ago.

    The "formula" the last few years has worked well. Win the games you should, win a few close ones and find an upset somewhere. To me, that is a very dangerous game to play. Lose a game somewhere in there you should win and you're going to have a heck of a time finding a way to replace that win. With our youth and that schedule, I just see 4 wins as what we end up with.

    I just don't understand why everyone thinks Baylor and TCU are going to be that good. They weren't that good last year.
