If we sweep this week, we're 8-0. SEMO is roadkill waiting to happen.
That would put us against Iowa looking for 10-0.
The next three (Dartmouth, Chicago State, and Texas Southern) are horrible, so 13-0 would be reasonable at that point.
Virginia is on the road and they are an unpredictable team, so it's crazy to get too worked up for anything there.
NIU stinks, just a pathetic team that thankfully can't use Jake Anderson. That's here in Hilton. Jake might be motivated that night. They get destroyed. 14-1 isn't unreasonable there. At the same time, UNI, Iowa, and Cal could all jump up to get us.
I think our odds of going over the 13.5 over/under for the season are pretty good just in the offseason, but certainly not a guarantee.
I spilt the kool-aid. I see 2-3 losses in the non-conf yet.
Love the team, love the energy, love the coach. Just being realistic.
I think in our next two games we either go 2-0 or 0-2. If we get a win at uni I like our chances Saturday. If we lose at uni I think we come back down from all the confidence and don't play as well against Cal.
It is time to go ALL IN. If ISU goes 40-0, they will be cutting down the nets.
too many unknowns at this point. "One game at a time" is our reality right now.
Not sure about the Virginia game, but we should be favored to win all the other nonconference games we play....so I don't think its that crazy to say we could win them all.
We will also be dogs @ Virginia, I would guess in the ISU +5 range, but again there is a lot of bball to be played before those lines come out.
Edit: Thanks for correcting me Yoda
My win total for the season hasn't really changed much. I think they'll get 12 or 13 non-con wins. I still think it will be somewhere between 3 and 5 Big 12 wins.
16 or 17 wins. Maybe 18. So tough to tell still. That's a little higher than I originally had it but not much. This team can get hot so they have the ability to upset some teams in Hilton. They can also get cold and lose a game that they shouldn't.
And no, 20 wins does not get you in the NCAA Tournament anymore.
The NIT is a great goal for this team.
