    Hang in there. We're just 2 years away from a 9 win season.

    Danny Mac's 1998 team finished 3-8, 1-7 in the Big 12. Two years later, we won the Insight Bowl and finished 9-3. 14 players who have made at least one start this year will still be here two years from now. Here's some of the players we'll have in 2015:

    QB--take your pick: SBR, Rohach, Lanning, Hodge
    RB--Nealy, Mister
    WR--Bundrage, Lazard, Daley, Ecby, Montgomery
    OL--Four of the five starters we had against TCU today, plus Campos and Curtis
    Defense--Kron, Tribune, Charlie Rogers, Sam Richardson, Luke Knott, Lemke, Mitch Meyers

    This year sucks, but just be patient. CPR will make a two year turnaround just like McCarney did. Mark it down!

    Please...no more "wait 'til next year" or "wait 'til 2015" threads. I beg of you....all of you....no more.

    I ran out of fingers doing the math, but by my reckoning, we're 13 years removed from that 9 win season.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    Re: Hang in there. We're just 2 years away from a 9 win season.

    Now we're waiting for 2015?
    Should we start the "2016 will be the breakout season" threads? This is really out there.

    this team has 6 win talent and -3 win coaching. until the coaching is fixed, dream on about 9 win seasons.

    I bet next year is CPR's most talented team. Just like this year.

    Re: Hang in there. We're just 2 years away from a 9 win season.

    Glad to see so much optimism on this board. Outside of cygrads, no one has listed a reason why we CAN'T make that kind of turnaround.

    Re: Hang in there. We're just 2 years away from a 9 win season.

    So you're saying we will win 9 games the same year that the Cubs are World Series Champs?
