    Re: How many wins will it take next year to keep you hopeful about the program?

    6 is the over/under.

    Expecting more would be unrealistic, anything less means we played below our talent level. That said, should we win 4-5 but be competitive in every game, I'd still see that as progressing in the right direction if still somewhat disappointing. So 6 is my magic number for believing the program is going where we want it to go. We will still be a team that is young, though far less than this season, and that will be even better in 2015. The next two years should see a strong upswing in our on-field performance...this season, given the injuries and youth, was about what could have been expected. From here on out, we get better every year for the foreseeable future.

    More than 5 will be encouraging, 5 is ok and less than five will be concerning.

    I'd say 6 for the most part. But absolute bare minimum would be a 'very competitive 5'... ie we only got 5 wins but we at least werent getting blown out in our other games.
