Game by Game Predictions:

Now that the schedule is here, Lets do some game by game predictions.

-Alabama A&M: W

-*Illinois State: W

-*WKU: W

-*Nevada: W, Yes, this will win us a trophy, but we should donate it to goodwil. Trash tourney

-UNLV: W

-Vermont: W, Very close win but a win none the less

-@Xavier: L, I hope CJB breaks out losing streak at Cintas but until then the smart bet is an L

-Colgate: W

-Tennessee: W, we will be in a groove by then, In JC i trust

-*Iowa : W, Revenge game. We will win.

-UCONN: W, Tough game to start conference play but a win

-@Tulane: W, Won't be as easy as normal, but no way Jarron lets us lose

-Tulsa: W, Frank haith is not beating us

-@UCF: W, Will be a tough game, but we are far more talented

-@Memphis: L, Could be a sold out crowd of 18K and we have no answer for wiseman

-ECU: W,

-@Temple: L, Temple returns a lot of guys. This is a toss up, but in philly i'll pick Temple

-SMU: W,

-Houston: W, We will get our revenge after they embarassed us on senior night

-@WSU: L, Marshall will have this team back in the tourney. Koch is tough

-@UCONN: W, The UCONN win streak continues. But less confident on this one

-Memphis: W, we get a season defining win against Memphis

-@ECU: W, THIS AIN"T HAPPENING AGAIN

-UCF: W

-WSU: W, Tough one, but we win

-@HOUSTON: L, We ain't beating Houston at Home.

-@USF: W, Hard fought battle, but we have Jarron, they don't

24-6

I think thats good enough for a 4-6 seed in the tourney.

Losses: @OSU, @Xavier, *Iowa, @Memphis, @Temple, @UConn, @Houston, @USF

22-8

I think J-Hub's prediction represents something closer to a best case scenario and a worst case scenario sees us with ~10 losses and bubble status.

I think we go undefeated in Non Conference.....Potential loss would be Tennessee.

In Conference, I think we may drop 2 gms.....Potential losses would be Wichita, and Houston.

So 28-2 or 27-3 It's just my thought.

I'm optimistic because in theory, we really didn't lose anything this off season lol, seriously.

Brooks****Just lost inches, Broome*****Couldn't get off the bench, Johnson****Just Flashes and he's gone, Jennifer***never ran PG the Coach did LOL!, the rest of the guys we lost don't even matter.

I think we are about to see some up an down basketball, with young talent that will have more of an impact than just 1 young player a year.

Whoa.

I get being optimistic. But man, thatís a lot of expectations for a first year coach in a league with some really great coaches.

That's my call too. 8 losses give or take 2. Hopefully not too many early bumps and then finish strong. We have some good talent but just a lot of questions with the new regime getting things ironed out early enough. We need one of the 5's to emerge as a solid play and I include Diara in that group because Scott will be one of the bigs on the court obviously.

pretty sure i read he returned to practice last week. it sounds like its something he just plays with but there was no real reason to push him in the offseason.
