Warren Nolan says 11-7! That's too much kool-aid for me.


That would mean we end the regular season at 24-7. No losses outside of Quad 1a.. That's a 2-3 seed resume if you win at least 1 in KC

Kool Aid indeed. I don't think 11-7 is likely, but there is probably like a 10% chance.

He's got us winning at WV. Huggy Bear is gonna be tough to beat at home with those guards, just a bag of snakes playing there.

I am not expecting a win in Morgantown. I like that they play Baylor and Tech before hosting us. Will be tired and hopefully 0-2 and feeling defeated

I could live with 7 straight wins in that late stretch.

Yeah, 9-9 is most likely, 10-8 wouldn't be shocking, 11-7 is getting some breaks.

I’ve revised my prediction to 9-9 or 10-8 in conference play. Based mainly on the strength of the conference I’ve seen so far, not because I don’t think we have talent.
It will be really hard to win on the road.

Playing around with NET rankings and Quad records, I have put subjective numbers to values and came up with the following. West Virginia is quite a bit underrated and Texas is overrated. Also shows three groupings in Big 12 (in order):
Tier 1: 2-Baylor, 3-Kansas, 10-Iowa State, 13-Texas Tech
Tier 2: 26-West Virginia, 30-Oklahoma, 35-Texas, 43-Oklahoma State
Tier 3: 56-Kansas State, 57-TCU

The conference-prediction thread got a bump after regular season, but this one hasn't gotten action since early in Big 12 play, so here's a bump for fun.

No surprise, actual result surpassed our modest (or lower) projections.

Alright, the CBB season starts in less than a week. Let's get some predictions going in here. Here's a few of mine

1. We go 5-13 in conference this year. Bad, but we finish ahead of K-State so we're finally not last.
2. One of those 5 wins is a huge upset over one of the conference favorites at home(KU, Baylor, Texas)
3. We at least play competitively against most teams. A few ass kickings in there but no 40 point losses at home
4. We win 1 in the NIT season tip off
5. We win all our buy games

Review
1. We won 7 games and did in fact beat KState in the standings.
2. Beat Texas at home
3. Pretty much on point
4. We did win one. Then we won another one
5. A few bad games, but yes we did!
