    Expectations for 2009

    Now that we have a coach. We have a feeling for which players are going to be here. What are you expectations for this football team in 2009?

    Without Coordinators there is obviously room for some changes but we have a base to start.

    Re: Expectations for 2009

    That's a good question. We certainly have a strong base of quality young men, but I have a feeling there may be a learning curve depending on the system that is put into place. I'm hoping for 6, but I'm not going to freak out with any number.

    Re: Expectations for 2009

    Honestly, I'll go back to my prediction for this past season, 4 or 5 wins.

    What I really want to see is some good X's and O's. We haven't had that in a long time.

    Re: Expectations for 2009

    Everything depends on the defensive line, pure and simple. The offense will score, we know that.

    The defensive line was the downfall in 2008. There was one poster on this board that argued before the season started against me that the d-line was deep and that guys that had not seen the field previously would do well. The same poster said the d-line should be ok next year too with more guys that have not seen the field. If I am PR, I am hitting the JC's hard for DT's with a pulse....

    Too many times, I've gone down our schedule for football and picked 6 or 7 wins to only get 2 to 3. Same with basketball 20+ wins to get 15.

    However, I'm going 5 wins. Nothing unreachable but I'm also calling for an upset victory in the big 12 and a road win.

    19 wins. The NCAA/BCS will keep lining them up to keep us from winning our national title, and we'll keep knocking them down.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Expectations for 2009

    I think 5 wins would be a good start, fitting for PR to equal Sleazik's win total in his first season. Anything more is just gravy. I like gravy.

    Somewhere between 2 and 7.

    Completely depends on defensive improvement.

    Re: Expectations for 2009

    If you sit down and actually take a look at the schedule, there is no reason to expect less than four wins, and I personally expect to go to a bowl at 6-6 or 7-5 next season. We return our offense next season. Our first five games can be won.
