    8-2

    Calling it now, we go 8-2 at a minimum the next 10 games. Book it

    Re: 8-2

    Why be negative? Why not 10-0? You're a bad, negative fan.

    I'm not going to book it, but I believe the two biggest games in hoping to achieve this feat are this Saturday and @ West Virginia.

    Re: 8-2

    Kansas State
    @ Kansas
    Oklahoma
    @ Oklahoma State
    TCU
    @ West Virginia
    Texas Tech
    Texas
    @ TCU
    West Virginia

    Seeing as we are playing in Lawrence and Stillwater over that stretch, we would have to be pretty much perfect in the rest of the games to pull it off. Playing in Morgantown will be tough, plus the Sooners and Longhorns at Hilton are not gimmes. And then there is this weekend's game against a ranked team while we're on a three-game skid.

    Not to mention, even if we do go 8-2 over the next ten, we could easily finish 0-3 after that (@KSU, @ BU, OSU).

    Re: 8-2

    Very possible. Could be better too. The main thing is getting off this little skid and getting the swagger back, and longer term, a winning record in conference. Do that and we are dancing with a minimum of a six seed

    Re: 8-2

    We win @KU and @OSU, but lose at home to TCU and TTU... just to see how some people on here react.

    That would be good, because I am going to be at both. ...Well, good if we win!

    Re: 8-2

    I say 7-3. I think we win one of @KU/OSU, then drop one game at home (OU or Texas) and struggle in Morgantown. I'd be happy to eat crow though!

    Re: 8-2

    Is this the same guy that said we would win our last six football games?

    This seems right. I think 8-2 is very possible, but that @WV game may be tough.

    Re: 8-2

    11-7 was last year's conference record. We have already dropped 3 games, @OU, KU, @UT,

    We still have
    @KU,
    @KSU,
    KSU at home,
    @Baylor,
    @OSU,
    OSU at home.

    I like us finishing 12-6 with 3 more losses (not sure which 3) Gotta win some tough road games. But could see us at best at 13-5 or back 11-7. 10-8 would be a disappointment.

    Outright conference winner will have 4 or less losses, Co-Conf winner will be 5 losses.

    I agree; I'll say we go 12-6 in conference play and 2-1 in KC for a record of 26-7 heading into the Big Dance. That's probably worth a 5 seed.
