# > 10ppg
Avg Home Att.
Team PPG
Team PAPG
20+ pt wins
20+pt losses
High Scorer (Points) Single Game (#)

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...

That's no different than yelling at people for predicting minutes. Just let it be.

I think what the current coach did with limited resources demonstrated that there is cause for greater expectations. The A10 coaches expect more of UMass this season. I predicted 22 wins, and would be happy with 20.

Wow, pretty gloomy way to look at things. It's the springtime for UMASS hoops, time for optimism. Set the bar high
