    New Schedule - Season Prediction Time!!!

    Now that our full schedule is out, it's time for game-by-game predictions (no, tucotroll, we aren't asking you for a game-by-game prediction of how Kansas will do). I'll start:

    11/14 Oakland - W (1-0, 0-0)
    11/17 Georgia State - W (2-0, 0-0)
    11/24 Alabama - W (3-0, 0-0)
    11/25 Arizona State/Maryland - W (4-0, 0-0)
    12/2 Lamar - W (5-0, 0-0)
    12/4 Arkansas - W (6-0, 0-0)
    12/9 UMKC - W (7-0, 0-0)
    12/12 @Iowa - W (I know a lot of you will disagree, but Iowa isn't good this year without Marble) (8-0, 0-0)
    12/14 Southern - W (9-0, 0-0)
    12/20 Drake - W (10-0, 0-0)
    12/31 Mississippi Valley State - W (11-0, 0-0)
    1/3 South Carolina - W (12-0, 0-0) This game will be tougher than a lot of people think with the huge class Martin has brought in, but should still be a 10-15 point victory
    1/6 Okie State - W (13-0, 1-0)
    1/10 @WVU - W (14-0, 2-0) We learned our lesson last year and shut up Morgantown after getting embarrassed last year
    1/14 @Baylor - W (15-0, 3-0)
    1/17 Kansas - W (16-0, 4-0)
    1/20 Kansas State - W (17-0, 5-0)
    1/24 @Texas Tech - W (18-0, 6-0)
    1/26 Texas - W (19-0, 7-0)
    1/31 TCU - W (20-0, 8-0)
    2/2 @Kansas - L (20-1, 8-1)
    2/7 Texas Tech - W (21-1, 9-1)
    2/9 @Oklahoma - L (21-2, 9-2)
    2/14 WVU - W (22-2, 10-2)
    2/18 @Okie State - W (23-2, 11-2)
    2/21 @Texas - L (23-3, 11-3)
    2/25 Baylor - W (24-3, 12-3)
    2/28 @Kansas State - W (25-3, 13-3)
    3/2 Oklahoma - W (26-3, 14-3)
    3/7 TCU - W (27-3, 15-3)
    Big 12 Tourney - 1 Seed
    QF - Baylor - W (28-3, 16-3)
    Semi - Kansas State - W (29-3, 17-3)
    Finals - Kansas - L (29-4, 17-4)
    We wind up a 2 seed in the tournament and depending on the matchups in the tourney, could be a Final 4 team.

    I'm definitely drinking my kool-aid, but we have an extremely favorable schedule with a non-conference that is so easy that it won't hurt us not having McKay until our first conference game. I like the way our Big 12 schedule is set up as well as we can easily go 3-0 in conference before beating Kansas down at home. Time for other predictions, go.

    Win the first 20 games? I would love to believe you but I have to think we will drop at least 1 or 2 before then. If we went 20-0 to start the season, we'd probably be ranked #1 in the nation.

    Yeah I agree. I can see where he's coming from because they are all winnable, but a slip up is bound to happen at some point. Especially in college basketball.

    Anyway, without out going game by game, I'd say we lose 5 regular season games.

    Re: New Schedule - Season Prediction Time!!!

    Question for ISU fans, do you like the non con schedule or would you like to see more high profile games?

    I could see both sides because a softer non con gives the new guys a chance to gel before getting to Big 12 play.

    I honestly wish we had 1-2 more high profile games. As long as we take care of business in the non-con it shouldn't hurt us however.

    I think it's going to be a great season, and honestly 20-0 probably isn't going to be far off.

    We will get our first loss much before the Kansas road game in February.

    We are limited in the sense that nobody wants to play in Hilton

    If we start 20-0 we're going to be ranked #1. But I don't think we'll go 20-0.

    high profile. There's nothing better then having your guys bond after winning big games.

    No one wants to play in Hilton though.

    5 or 6 losses, still a good shot at a final four run. 2 or 3 seed.
