    8-4 Best Case.. 2-10 Worse

    Video: Best case/worst case -- Iowa State - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    Not exactly breaking down any games just sounded like he was making off the hip guessing with no real analysis.

    But its a video on ESPN so I dont care that much about the quality

    A six game swing? Really going out on a limb here, aren't we...

    Best Case 14-0 with a big 12 and national championship

    Worst Case - get kicked out of the big 12 and go 0-12 in the MAC.

    If we go 8-4, give CPR a lifetime contract

    Which is why I said regular season for the 12-0, because in the 8-4 prediction a bowl game wasn't included in the record. So....

    He messed up the ISU - Missouri game. Its played in Ames and I see that as definitely winnable. If we go into the end of the season with some fire or Missouri is either deflated or just trying to cruise into their bowl game then I see it as VERY winnable.

    2-10 is a little extreme but I could see it happening with some significant injuries.

    With both of those records we need some extreme breaks and bounces.

    I think we can win this as well, but our offense will have to do good. Mizzou's offense will go up and down the field on our defense next year

    i will be much more surprised by a 2 win season than 8. And I will be much more sad, angry, dissappointed, depressed, confused, and upset.

    I think the bell shaped curve of wins has 5.5 at the top with 7-8 possible with a bowl win.

    I'm the exact opposite. I would be much more surprised by an 8 win season.

    I'd be equally surprised. To go 2-10 we'd likely have be winless in the Big 12. This is after winning 3 games, and being extremely close to winning 2 more. Honestly, we have enough talent that if our coaches are halfway as good as many on this board think, 2 wins would be ******* pathetic. I'm not saying it isn't possible, because it definitely is. I'm saying it would be pathetic. If A-Rob, AA and KO all went down, I could accept that record, but that's about what it would take.

    To go 8-4 we'd have to beat one of OU, UT, NU, Iowa, and Utah, and beat everyone else. This is borderline impossible. That said, at this time last year I would have said that 7 wins was borderline impossible.

    I think we should be right at 6 wins, with 5 more likely than 7. I'll be fine with 5 wins, with a healthy roster. All in all, 8-4 and 2-10 are probably good bench marks for best and worst case scenarios. We need an equal amount of luck in both the good and bad categories to achieve those respective records.
