    Pass the Kool-Aid, I'm drinking

    After listening to Deace and Miller this am, I'm feeling better about this team and our chances for a bowl. If the defense can slow somebody down, I think our offense can hang in there. I'm talking 6 to 7 wins now, I'm drinking-not chugging.

    They must have gave out free samples at media day because even Jon Miller said 6 wins

    I think a lot of people of the press that aren't necessarily close to the program came away from media day impressed. I saw a lot of positive press yesterday and am reading a lot of positive articles today.

    Re: Pass the Kool-Aid, I'm drinking

    Pass it this way then, please. Cause I just don't see it. Hope I'm wrong. But I just don't see a squad that finished 0-10, got blanked in conference, has a new staff and new schemes, making that momentus of a leap. I'm hoping for 4 wins.

    I'm with DaddyMac (that sounds....inappropriate).

    I hope for 6 wins, but expect 4.

    Re: Pass the Kool-Aid, I'm drinking

    I'm all for the enthusiasm but what I don't want to see is a let down directed toward PR if we don't get to 6-7 wins. I think the proper mentality is hope and pray for 6 wins and if we get them celebrate. But if PR comes up a little short lets all remember to stay positive and be patient while he installs his system. This team only won 5 games the last 2 years combined...getting to 4-5 wins would still be a step in the right direction.

    Re: Pass the Kool-Aid, I'm drinking

    I told myself I wasn't going to get my hopes up this season just to have them crushed like usual. Well, that has went out the window and I am really pumped for this team. I see 6 to 7 wins.

    I don't think many of us actually disagree that this team is capable of 6-7 wins (if the ball bounces our way a few times). Just seems to me the general concensus is 3-5 wins in a more realistic approach.

    I for one can see this team going to a bowl game this year, but as you said, I don't want to expect a bowl game only to be dissapointed when we come up short.

    My W/L prediction is 5-7 (2-6). That is 5-7 overall and 2-6 in conference.

    Re: Pass the Kool-Aid, I'm drinking

    Not going to jump in head first quite yet and say 6 wins and a bowl game, but listening to Miller and Deace did get me excited for the season. It also reminded me how big of a waste last year was. We had mor first downs than Iowa did last year during that game, we had over 30 first downs agains both KSU and TAM, 35 yards away from a game winning FG against KU, the option play against CU. Seriously how did that happen!!??!!

    Re: Pass the Kool-Aid, I'm drinking

    While there is a huge upgrade in DC and OC, I am not sure how you can get too excited about their prospects when implementing a new system with players from a previous coach. That said, I am predicting an undefeated season with the only close game in the Big 12 championship game against Texas, but that will still be a 3 TD victory.

    This sounds like a great time to cue Journey's "Don't Stop Believing"

    Re: Pass the Kool-Aid, I'm drinking

    I refuse to get my hopes up BUT we did have 4 games that could have went our way last season. (Iowa, UNLV, KU, CU). We've got some decent experienced talent now and good schedule for some wins.

    It all depends on the learning curve of the offense imo and the defense to be no worse than last season.
