    Next Year Prediction System

    I was bored today so here you go: On a scale from 0-10, give each game a point for your prediction and confidence of it on next year's schedule. 10 being the highest confidence we will win, 5 being a toss-up, and 0 being no chance for us to win.

    Here's my take:

    Northen Illinois-8
    Iowa-3
    Utah-5
    Northen Iowa-9
    Texas Tech-7
    Kansas State (KC)-5
    Oklahoma-2
    Texas-1
    Kansas-7
    Nebraska-5
    Colorado-4
    Missouri-5

    So according to this, I'm saying 4 wins, 4 losses, and 4 toss-ups. The outcomes of those toss-up games will be huge.

    Overall prediction: 6-6 (3-5)

    Going with 4-6 as toss-ups= 3 wins, 4 toss-ups, and 5 losses. Hope we're better than that.

    Missouri-4

    That puts us at 3-1 (maybe 2-2) non-conference and 3-5 (maybe 2-6) in conference which is where I think most people have us pegged. Anything more than 6 wins next year proves to me that this year wasn't a fluke benefit of a terrible schedule. Anything less than 4 wins next year proves to me that we aren't too far away from becoming a MAC conference school.

    Re: Next Year Prediction System

    I am not going to make any game-by-game predictions. I am predicting a "sophomore slump" for Paul Rhoads. I think we'll win 4 or 5 games. Don't get me wrong, I still think he is an awesome coach. But I am looking at the increased difficulty of the schedule, combined with all the talent that we are losing, and that the talent coming in will be mostly young talent who will take probably another year to mature and really contribute.

    I just hope that this cover-achieving season doesn't get people's hopes sky-hi so that, if reality does come into check a bit this next season, people don't get too devastated by it.

    I see texas being beatable for somereason. Nebraska will be more beatable but they are going to be P.O.ed after having to watch the lockerroom celebration all year. Big 12 north is going to be kind of down. Utah is going to lay some serious wood on us.

    I think there are a lot of toss ups. If AA makes big strides in the offseason we will be tough to beat.

    5 wins, 3 loses, 4 toss ups. I think 5 wins would be a somewhat of a disappointment, 6 should be expected, 7 is what I am predicting, and anything more exceeds my expectations. Of course this is way to early and my opinion may change before August.

    Utah is losing a lot this year, they will be a young team. I would be shocked if they blew ISU out.

    Texas has just too much firepower. Oklahoma I think is looking for answers so you never know. Iowa is going to be good but hopefully we can come out a little more fired up then we did this past season. We will see.
