    @ Tech Tech is hurting, 42-24W
    @ Baylor Three road trips in four weeks, we fall short, 32-22L
    Vs OSU Another tough game, another tough loss, 42-32L
    @ KSU Take KSU off guard and finally get them, 32-20W

    Re: Season Predictions

    vs UNI 95% chance to win
    Vs Iowa 65% chance to win
    @ Tulsa 70% chance to win
    Vs Texas 30%
    @ Tech 50%
    @ Baylor 50%
    Vs OSU 30%
    @ KSU 55%
    Vs TCU 40%
    @ OU 20%
    Vs KU 85%
    @ WVU 50%


    That puts us at a prediction of 6.4 wins for me. I think this is the best way to do it. It's a good style for discussion too. I personally think it is silly to just declare that you have a hunch that we are going to upset some team two months beforehand and add that as a W on a prediction.

    WVU is going to be bad this year, do you really see us losing there? Not trying to be mean but I think Tech and KU might be better this season.

    I could go for this.

    Re: Season Predictions

    Why the heck not?

    Vs UNI Not as close as it looks. 35-10 W
    Vs Iowa Stop the run, the rest of the D gets turnovers 28-13 W
    @ Tulsa Jaws start dropping about the O. 42-10 W
    Vs Texas National TV, you say? 21-17 W
    @ Tech Every new coach has an adjustment. 32-14 W
    @ Baylor Someone claims Baylor plays defense? 35-28 W
    Vs OSU As long as we're surprising people... 31-28 W
    @ KSU Wildcats in rebuilding mode: 28-17 W
    Vs TCU Not buying the Horned Frog hype: 35-27 W
    @ OU Sooners have weak spots, Norman isn't promising. 28-31 L
    Vs KU Sam likes Jayhawks. 42-12 W
    @ WVU Not sure whether 'neers have offense or defense, but some tired 'Clones. 24-21 W

    Good enough?

    Re: Season Predictions

    5-7 or 6-6 with wins against UNI and KU...Where our other wins come from I have absolutely no idea. Tulsa, Iowa, WVU, KU, Tech would be my guess

    I dunno. My predictions certainly don't affect the outcome of the games--and I've most certainly been wrong before.

    Basically my thoughts as well. Though I'd put Baylor as the last one over Tech. I have a feeling Tech is going to be pretty decent this season under their own Coach McDreamy.

    Re: Season Predictions

    UNI: W
    Iowa: W
    Tulsa:W
    Texas: W
    Tech: W
    Baylor: L
    OSU: L
    KSU: W
    TCU: L
    OU: L
    Kansas: W
    WVU: W

    I think we can go 8+1/4, but probably struggle to win 6 games, I will take a 7W/6L season.

    Re: Season Predictions

    I won't predict it, but we could finish as high as 5th in the conference this year. The teams 5-10 are all very similar talent wise. I think we win 6. Start 3-0, beat tech, tcu at home (upset special) and kansas. Lose a tough one @WVU to end the season. WVU will get their 6th win that day.

    Re: Season Predictions

    I have no idea why everyone picks a loss to TCU, I think we win by 2 touchdowns and plays out like Baylor last season. I have us at 7-5
