For sure. You just asked if it could be better.I doubt anyone gets Nebraksa, PSU and NW all twice. And if anyone does, it's probably Wisconsin just because.
Very little. I’m basing it off my expectations for the Gophers. UMKC does appear to have some size on their current roster. Plus Foxxy is O-U-T.What do you know about their team that makes you make that statement?
Assuming the non-conference is 7 buy games, @Miss St, ACC game and Big East game, I'd put the record at 5-25 worst case, 12-18 best case.
This will likely be a historic season. Common will be sure to follow the team closely this season. Good for media coverage.Gophers schedule to date. Schedule will have minimum of 29 regular-season games, maximum of 31. I haven't seen confirmation of Gavitt Games participation, so for now not including that on the schedule. If Gophers do participate, it's pretty much guaranteed it will be a home game.
Nov. 9: KANSAS CITY
Nov. 29-Dec. 1: ACC Challenge (highly likely on the road)
Dec. 5: @ Mississippi State
@ Michigan State*
@ Ohio State*
@ Penn State*
March 9-13: Big 10 Tournament (Indianapolis)
I think 5 wins as best-case is awfully pessimistic. Even in a worst-case, you ought to go 4-3 in the buy games and stumble into a B1G win somewhere. PSU and NW will be bad too and we get 4 shots at them.I'm not trying to be pessimistic, but I think best case would be like 5-25. I have my doubts if we can even win a B1G game next season. It'll be interesting to see what our buy games will be.
I think that's awfully pessimistic. Even in a worst-case, you ought to go 4-3 in the buy games and stumble into a B1G win somewhere. PSU and NW will be bad too and we get 4 shots at them.
Best case, win 7-8 non-conference games and shock the world with 5-6 B1G wins.
I was thinking the same thing.I'm just not seeing getting to 7/8 wins OOC. Unless our buy games consist of strictly SWAC and MEAC teams. But that's never been the case. I think from a talent perspective this team is worse off than the 15-16 team. That team won 8 games, but was 2-16 in the B1G. I guess the question comes down to are guys like Stephens, Loewe, Sutherlin, as experienced players, better off than what we were with a younger DuPree and Mason, Murphy. That 15-16 team had losses against South Dakota, South Dakota State, and Milwaukee.
