Of course you do.
You forgot to mention about them still being phegs.
Yeah yeah. I said 5-7 last year and you all called me dumb too. ( said 9-3 the year before). I'm not biased. You guys just have no talent on defense and a tough schedule . You could win as many as 4 but I doubt it
We called you dumb cuz yer an Iowa fan....
Congrats, you've mastered how to beat Mike Riley. Something only a hundred or so other teams have done. Hold on tight to that beacon of hope.
We didn't play Mike riley. We played Nevraska. Your roster this year is worse so.... good luck with that
Was kind of just playing along until this post.
I'd be interested in knowing how the roster is worse this year. No more hand me down pick 6 QB, no more garden gate left tackle, no losses from the best group from last season (d line), one of the best WR combos in CFB, bigger faster stronger players. Sure, the qb's are unproven, but they were last year too.
I understand your frustrations, as an Iowa fan I'm sure it sucks. But don't let it make you say dumb shit.
Your D is atrocious. Yes you have a theoretical upgrade at QB but you all said the same thing last year as you store no one could turn it over more than Armstrong . The only position on your team that is what I'd classify as B10 level is wide receiver where you all are very very good. If you're hanging your hopes on a freshman QN with a below average OL, bad running backs and a bottom 10 D1 defense I'd say good luck . Add in a far more difficult schedule and I say 2-10. Sure it could be a few games better but you're not sniffing a bowl game
Agree - I can see Nebraska doing better and going 4-8/5-7. Get the right qb in place then that could maybe go up as well.
We got rid of Bob Diaco. The defense will be greatly improved. It won't take much. The OL will be just fine. If the frosh QB throws half the int's of the last guy wins will improve.
Bad running backs? Lulz.
You say 2-10. I say 5-7. I'll avy bet you on who is closer at the end of the year.
I think your high end is 4-8 so if you want a bet I'll go 3 wins or less and you get 5+ and we will call 4 a push. Deal?
Sure, I'm in.
Loser wears the avy for a week? Or through bowl season?
I'll go through bowl season
I said 5-7 last year as well... even though I wasn't on this board at that time.
This year, I am predicting 6-6. Call me a homer, call me an optimist, whatever. I actually think there is a decent chance at 8 wins albeit it is unlikely, but I could see it easily.
Does Illinois still have a team?
Hey anything is possible . O think there's only 2 games on the schedule where you guys should mark down a W. There are 6 imo where you'll be prohibitive underdogs and 4 where I think you'll have a shot although I personally believe your roster won't be as good as 3 of those other 4 teams . If you can get off to a 3-0 start it could snowball in a good way. We shall see
