5-6 wins are realistic, 7 wins possible, 8 wins would be a dream season, more than 8 would be too much for me to handle
I think both need to play - maybe it's not 50/50, but Bates needs to be on the field as long as he is productive. if bates leads them to a couple 3 and outs, then Arnaud sees all the reps adn Bates is catching passes.
I think 6 wins is realistic, it depends on teh Defense. I think the Offense will be ok, the O-line should be the best since 2002 which should result in a better running game. If the Defense shows up early this season and they start off 4-0, confidence will take them to 6 wins possibly more.
I think that we'll get 6 wins, but its just so hard to predict. I think we *should* win all non-conference games. I really expect to beat Iowa this year, and see no reason why we shouldn't, despite playing in Iowa City. As far as conference goes, I think we can beat Nebraska at home --we witnessed how first season's under new coaching regimes can go. Nebraska, undoubtedly has more talent than we do, but I still think they'll go through their growing pains. Also, I think we can get K-State OR Baylor for away conference games. Who would have thought that our toughest conference games will likely be Kansas and Missourri. crazy.
What do you think Chris???
I love the Awful Announcing blog... I read it almost daily... Good for a laugh every day.
Good call on the Royals-Yankees! Called KC by 3 and it was 5-2.
I just booked 2 tickets to Vegas for you and me.
As far as my football predictions...they are coming but I'm not going to let the old kitty out of the bag just yet. That will be one super-blog later on this summer.
