    Nothing like judging a team based on one game. Maybe I'll judge this past years basketball team based on the game at West Virginia, or the near loss against UNI at Wells Fargo.

    I'm adding Iowa to win column and hoping for one more (I'll take K-State) to get us to 6 wins.

    4-6. IF we improve dramatically on offense and IF our newcomers on defense really put it together fast, I could see the high end of that happening.

    4-8. On the bright side I don't have to watch them lose to freaking UNI again. I might still be bitter...

    Re: what are you expectations for this season?

    I expect bowl eligibility at the very least every year. However, looking at it realistically this season, I vote for 4-6 wins.

    But, I think we can beat Tech.

    Honestly though, I have no real high expectations. I'm just planning on enjoying tailgating and looking forward to basketball again, a place where the W is expected.

    Re: what are you expectations for this season?

    3 wins - I think we slip up against NDSU or Toledo (hoping not both). I think we are going to struggle mightily and I don't see more than 3 wins realistically. No win is guaranteed though.

    Wins:

    NDSU *1
    Toledo *1
    Kansas *2
    West Virginia *2

    *1 - Quite possible we slip up against one of the two.
    *2 - If we win against Kansas, we likely beat WVU; if we lose to Kansas, we likely lose to WVU


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    This is pretty much where I'm at. I can't see anymore than 4 wins on the schedule, and that's if they beat the teams you mentioned. Expecting them to win any of the other games at this point is a bit of a stretch in my opinion.

    Re: what are you expectations for this season?

    Can I distinguish between hopes and expectations? I kinda expect somewhere around a .500 season--though it's kinda early to tell. I'll hope for a bit better than that.

    4-6, but I lean towards 6. Our offense will help our defense a lot more this year. Mangino is using us as a job interview and he is going to want to outscore anyone he faces.

    Isn't this what every coach is trying to do?

    I see 4 winnable games on the schedule, and I don't know that I can expect us to get them all, so 3-9 it is. Basketball school.
