WIns this year?

OMG I AGREE WITH YOU.

This season will not be measured in wins.

All seasons are measured by wins and loses.

I’m geussing will get better every moth of the season… that being said I can’t tell where we are right now after 2 short handed games and one donkey punching.

If we are really as bad as we looked yesterday- 11-14 with a bottom 3rd league finish
If we are a little better today and it just hasn’t clicked I can see 15-17 and splitting our league games.

I’m guessing we’ll finish with between 10 and 15 wins, bottom half of the A10. Don’t think and NIT appearance is likely based on what we’ve seen so far. Still a long ways to go and a lot that can happen.

I want to see if Major can get these guys to improve throughout the year, or if we regress and tank like last year.

I don’t think that will be up to Major. I think the players a) come around to listening to him and we get better b ) they don’t come around and we continue to suck or c) he benches those that don’t want to listen and we still suck from a lack of talent.

I’m seeing lucky 13 wins this season. If you asked me if I thought going into this season if we would be better than last season I would have said yes returning with all these starters.
Just don’t feel that way now.

Swept by EZU, wow. I think we win both those, plus Davidson. St Joe’s we should win also. That would move us up to 17 wins on your scale. Not sure we beat Richmond though. I also think we beat Oregon State. I could see us beating URI, they typically flounder down the stretch and we will likely beat one team no one expects us to beat. Maybe Tennessee, they’ve had a lot of problems this year.

I don’t think that will be up to Major.[/quote] ???

20-10 or 19-11

FWIW…just spoke to Bobby and he said “I hope the guys will rally–20+ win team if they can get it going.” He said he likes Ames so far…nice place, nice fans. He says Hoiberg reminds him of a young Jeff Mullins. He said he misses his friends and family in Charlotte though. Class guy…I’m not bashing Coach Major btw. Just nice to hear from BL.

Classic Lutz

Thanks for sharing Max. Keep us updated through the winter if you hear any more from Bobby.

It’s blocked by my work. I thought of just calling him a “moron” or “rook” or even a “clown” since it was way over his head as to what I was getting at.

IMO option C > option B

If they’re not going to try, I say bench them and give a chance to some players than want to play, even if it means playing 3 walkons. If we’re going to lose, let’s at least lose with heart and desire.
