    @ Oklahoma will be where I am concerned the most. They are well-coached team.

    I am glad to have KU at home first. Great confidence builder (regardless of win or lose).

    I think we defeat Northern Illinois by many (I will insert the Brent Blum impossibility, of Northern Illinois winning). Texas Tech will be improved from last year, but I just don't think they match up at all with our team. We should beat them by a good margin. The Baylor game scares me. They are damn good this year.

    exactly, the attitude of a pessimistic fanbase. I believe we can run the table past the Kansas game

    5-0, a top five national ranking, and a verbal commitment from rashad Vaughn. It's going to be a good couple weeks.

    How could a game being played in Hilton Colesium scare a Cyclone fan?

    Yeah, we won those but we looked pretty rough doing it.

    If we can get through that stretch with one loss is take it. If the clones are undefeated afterward at 16-0 I'll start considering this title talk.

    I think you forgot, this is a scenario where it's actually Hoiberg vs Drew instead of players...I'll take Hoiball anyday. Scott Drewshbag still doesn't know how to coach.

    As someone else already mentioned, I'm more worried about the @OU game.

    Re: Next Five Games

    Starting the season, I expected a similar year to the last two which of course could still happen.

    This team is better than those two:

    (1) Don't turn it over much
    (2) Vastly improved team defense (not great by any means but trending in the right direction)
    (3) We go after the ball on the glass like a swarm of piranhas.
    (4) Having the man-child PG instead of the shoot-first PG or the power forward PG is huge.

    We could end up in the same place but this group is good.

    Re: Next Five Games

    I'm not worried about games at Hilton, role players play better at home. Conference road games worry me as we have gotten very little from the bench lately. Don't know if we can consistently win on the road with four guys doing all the work.

    I bet they come back early for this one. There's is no way the student section won't be packed for two ranked teams.
