    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.

    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.


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

    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.

    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?

    3. No more North Division
    4. Coaching
