    The rest of the season

    For the last few seasons I've done a preseason forecast for FB & MBB (and recently, WBB). I'm usually a little too optimistic, but I also try to be realistic. Most of the time, I'm fairly close to what happens.
    So far this season, ISU's record is exactly what I envisioned. I was wrong twice: predicted a win over UNI, and a loss at Nebraska.
    I'm not too confident about my forecast the rest of the way, though. Here is the remainder:
    @Baylor L 77-74
    Kansas St W 68-64
    @Missouri L 79-72
    @Kansas L 87-62
    Okla St W 72-65
    Texas A&M W 74-71
    Nebraska W 70-63
    @Colorado W 76-67
    Missouri W 77-74
    @KSU L 69-61

    At this point, I'd be pleasantly surprised if it shapes up like that. I have a feeling it'll be a stretch to win more than one against KSU/OSU/Mizzou/@CU

    Nothing wrong with being optimistic! I've predicted a win in every game so far this year. I'm not doing so hot.
