    Next 6 games

    At KU
    At KSU
    Colorado
    At Nebraska
    Texas AM
    Texas

    What are your predictions? Because we are improving I think we can win 2 MAYBE 3 of those games. Earlier this year I would have said zero maybe 1. Good to see us improving.

    Re: Next 6 games

    Should be 2 wins in there, maybe 3 if we can steal one v Texas or aTm.

    Re: Next 6 games

    I'm hoping for two. I'm guessing the Colorado game is the only one we'll be favored in, although you never know if A&M keeps losing every game by 20 points.

    I'd be happy with 3 wins, but I would guess we will get two of these.

    I think we will win the Colorado game and either win at Neb. or steal one at home vs. Texas.

    I'm drinking the Kool-Aid, but I think we can win 3, possibly four of these games....Hilton Magic can do wonders...

    Re: Next 6 games

    the way aTm played in their last games, they are going to drop out of the top 25 when rankings come out tomorrow. I think we have a shot at KSU if we can shut down beasley. I don't know if we can put Rahshon on him cause of his size. But I do see wins over Colorado at home and at Nebraska. I can see wins KSU, Colorado, Nebraska, and aTm. That'd be a great next 6 games, however, if we go 3-3 I wouldn't feel bad either.

    Re: Next 6 games

    I know Nebraska has improved, but GMAC had Doc Sadler's number last year as we won both games. I think we will beat Colorado and maybe one of the Texas teams. If we win a 3rd, then I say it is against Nebraska. I think KSU is beatable at Hilton as I don't think they are well coached. They sure have a lot of fire power, though.

    Re: Next 6 games

    At least we are still excited about this team. Hopefully we steal a couple more this year! We still have about 3-4 home games on Saturday that start at 3. No reason not to have a full house for each of those games!

    Re: Next 6 games

    My prediction is brutal. I don't envy G-Mac and Company right now.

    Keep in mind this stretch spans from Jan. 23rd to Feb. 9th. Just 17 days for those 6 games. Nothing foreign to conference play, but not easy for a young team that still isn't completely healthy...not to mention the tough opponents.

    Re: Next 6 games

    I'm hoping for 3 wins. Colorado, Nebraska, and then I think we can beat aTm or Texas. aTm and Texas haven't impressed me this year, and we play both in Hilton.

    So true. The optimist in me sees around 2 maybe three.

    I won't be shocked if we get 0-1

    Re: Next 6 games

    I think it's pretty hard to actually predict we win 3 of those games. If we go 3-3 in that stretch, I'll be doing a jig.
