There are 33 games overall and 18 conference games. Not sure how you got 21-8 and 10-6.

Oops! You're right. And I used to count things for a living. I still don't get Refuse2Lose's numbers.

He still missed the correct number of games... It is 31 games, 13 non-con, 18 conference... 10-6 gives him good wiggle room if they finish between 12-6 and 10-8 though :twisted:

I see some folks picking Laurent for leading rebounder: thought about picking him, but have no indication that he is a good rebounder. Any thoughts on this from someone who has seen him in practice etc?

I'm not certain here but I don't know if it is mathematically possible to finish third in the conference at 10-8... Unless 1&2 go 18-0 and 17-1 it might be. Where's McKinney I need to light the Stats-Signal

Yea 10-8 sounds a lot more like 5th territory to me

All of you are setting yourself up for failure and disappointing expectations.

Sure, it's fun to predict wins, but when the team doesn't meet them then the board will turn into a dumpster fire.

There is nothing in the recent past to expect success. If the football team has taught us anything about expectations based on previous seasons, we should really temper our expectations and just let it play out.

Rather than predictions, the better question should be (although defeatist in nature) what is the minimum that you will accept before ditching support for the coach / team.

If we get to 15 wins I'll be happy. less than 15 is cause for concern...

Yes, you are setting a bar for expectations I suppose, but this isn't supposed to be a pass fail exercise. This is along the lines of a wager proposition without the wager of course.

This predictions thing has been up for 4 or 5 years (at least) and it has never devolved into a shit-show like most other threads have when the team falls short of expectations (circa 08' - 17').
In Matt McCall I trust!

Probably going start at the 4. Don't see Holloway being healthy enough to be the leader
