    I think the first on the list is a big if, but he is right. Bowl eligibility is definitely attainable.

    Will I be surprised if ISU gets 6 wins? No. Do I expect it? Sadly, no.

    Pretty bold to say this team will be the first to win 4 Big 12 games.

    The first game will be really big. Just ask Lakes.

    Petersen could be right because I think some of the teams could be down this year.

    There were a lot of IF's that went the wrong way last year.

    Ah, it's that time of year again where the media puts out an optimistic prediction and the fanbase gathers unreasonable expecations for the season, and then call for CPR's head once we only get 5 wins.

    But in all seriousness, Peterson brings up some good points and 6 wins is definitely possible. I'm thinking 4-5, but 6 shouldn't be out of the question.

    Heck, we should end the season on a four game run.

    Those last 4 are as easy of a schedule as there is.

    Otherwise PR should be run out on a rail and the Hamburgler will be installed.

    Which teams? Other than Tech and Baylor slightly, I can't think of any.

    Typical squawk fan always wanting to fire the head coach, or put in the backup quarterback, or only going to basketball games for free hotdogs.

    Ahh summer. The time of year when all cyclone fans get their hopes up only to see them crashing down around them come fall.

    Would you prefer everyone stay depressed all summer?

    I believe that KSU is down this year, and I don't think Tech will be as good as being hyped, nor do I think that OSU will be anywhere near what people believe they'll be. In-conference I think we beat KU, WVU, and Tech, for sure, and maybe KSU, TCU, and OSU. I think we struggle badly against BU, OU, and UT. I'm planning on a 6 or 7 win season at this point.

    That is pretty much what I am hoping for. Momentum is a cruel ***** in college football, and I'm hoping that we get some built up early. That starting schedule is a tough one for establishing that, but who knows? I'm definitely excited for the season to start.
