3-5....or more than 5.
7, more than 5
Bowl game or **** it all and give CFH all the funds and let's just convert to a basketball school.
6 is the over/under.
Expecting more would be unrealistic, anything less means we played below our talent level. That said, should we win 4-5 but be competitive in every game, I'd still see that as progressing in the right direction if still somewhat disappointing. So 6 is my magic number for believing the program is going where we want it to go. We will still be a team that is young, though far less than this season, and that will be even better in 2015. The next two years should see a strong upswing in our on-field performance...this season, given the injuries and youth, was about what could have been expected. From here on out, we get better every year for the foreseeable future.
We have 4 conference wins in us.... add 2-3 non-cons, we need to be at 6 wins next year. PERIOD.
If we go 5-7 I won't be burning tickets.
More than 5 will be encouraging, 5 is ok and less than five will be concerning.
A minimum of 6 any more is icing on the cake any less is a kick in the ****.
I agree Erik its a Bowl Game or Bust.....
6-7. Bowling....as someone said above.
13 to make up for last year
I'd say 6 for the most part. But absolute bare minimum would be a 'very competitive 5'... ie we only got 5 wins but we at least werent getting blown out in our other games.
Three conference wins.
I like at least 7. This means we finish regular season at 6-6, go to bowl and WIN it.
6 wins + bowl win is the minimum CPR needs to do in his sixth year as a head coach. I really want 7 wins + bowl win, but is not going to happen with schedule next year.
This past year I expected a 4-8 season with wins over UNI, IA, TCU, KS and possibly an upset like CPR's past has shown for 5 W's. I figured our young team needed a year to build on chemistry, well we fell short of expectations (in my eyes) for reasons discussed on other threads.
At same time expecting a 4-8 record this year I felt we could be 8-4 next year, with what was seen this past year and re-evaluating the talent pool I'll stay with my 8-4 guestimate for meeting expectations. 7-5 is doable if we're close in all games.
Warm weather Bowl game with a W or a respectable showing would be a move in the right step also.
4 conference wins, or a lot of fairly-uncontrollable issues. I mostly give a pass for 2013/14 primarily because of the much worse than normal injuries.
Otherwise, I see 3 reasons why next year has the most potential in the Rhoads era:
1) Tons of experience gained in 2013/14 (due both to injuries or previous year's seniors leaving).
2) Good existing talent recovering or returning from injuries.
3) As much as anyone can tell -- there should be impact players added to the roster.
I think those 3 things will outweigh the seniors and attrition. The new coaching staff, of course, could be horrible, awesome, or anywhere in between.
4 conference and 2 non-con wins should be minimum each year.
