    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 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.
