To simply things for some of you Niner fans, are we more likely to be 15-13 or 16-12?

I'm going with the under. At this point 14 wins/.500 is an improvement albeit not much. If Price doesn't deliver on at least the over...  >:(

I went over.  If you can't be inexplicably optimistic at this point in the year what else have you got?

Sound logic?

I'm going over. If the new big guys we have are decent, I think we could hit 20 wins.


If I were putting money down, I'd agree with JaM, 16-19 wins.

I went over too - but a lot of unknown here.  Who knows, but bottom of league should give plenty of wins.

Some of you are saying we have 19-9 and 20-8 potential? Wow. That would be an incredible y o y leap. 13 wins last year. Basketball can have that big of a jump, we'll see. Hope we don't waste Jon Davis.

Over.  4 against the Florida school plus the other CUSA scrubs, a couple of scrubs on the regular schedule = several free wins.


Only sure losses I see on the schedule or ok st. Wake and Davidson.


I think we can compete with everyone in the conference and I've not thought that before.

Over. Cautiously optimistic. Anything other than breaking .500 is abject failure. Here's to hoping for 19-20.

Over.  I want to believe Price can get it done.  Don't expect NIT, but would be pleased with that

Over & Judy gives Price an extension on her way out the door.

Price wasn’t a kitchen floor resume selection by Judy.

No, he was not, but she will sure as s*** try to take credit if/when things work out; just like she took credit for spending 20 years fighting for football.

I'm surprised she has not tried to take credit for the hiring of Bill Foster and Lee Rose, even though she was not even here yet.

Agreed. If our bigs play average, we'll push the top of CUSA.

Well over !
It's gonna take a few games for everyone to get used to each other and mesh, but by conference play
I expect alot of excitement !

-We have JD !
-Ajukwa and Nagee will have experience and be more comfortable.
-We have paint presence that we haven't had in some time and plenty of fouls to give.
-A shooter on Murphy and all round threats in AW, Vasic and Supica.
-And enough guards to spell Davis so he's not playing 36 minutes a game.

If the coaching steps up....look out !  (Can't imagine what next years squad will be!)

I think we will still see Davis on the court 36 minutes a game. Hes too good to have on the bench for long.

Davis is going to play as much as his health allows.

I didn't estimate in the great optimism on this board when setting the over under at 15.5. Especially with our past few years. I'll revise tonight and create a new poll.

With the added size and additional maturity this team should have the ability to post respectable record. They must get off to a good start because we have a stretch where we only play 3 out of 12 games at home.

Like ppl have stated, a good bit of unknowns out there, but def a little optimistic since we finally have some decent size down low.  Would like to be 5-2 going into our Wake Forest game at home and pack that place like I know it can be.  Last decent sized crowd, I've been to was the Miami game.

These are the same people who thought we were set at the QB position.

Well, I think expectations are super low, to be fair.  16 wins in this league means you are still a really bad team.  UAB had 16 wins last year and had a 200 RPI.  I think we can improve to that level, but that level is still bad (though probably .500 in CUSA). 


Not sure I'm as optimistic about the level of our improvement.  I see alot about our 'size', but all we did was trade a 6'10'' juco for 7 foot Benas.  Yes, Haslem is thicker and unknown (so we assume he is better), but honestly, he is not a heralded recruit.  And he will need help as he can't play 40 mins a game nor can he play aggressive on D as he'll get into foul trouble. 


Where will that come from?  A 6'8'' Supica?  Maybe.  He didn't have a lot of recruiting interest, but you never know.  A 6'8'' Thomas?  Good shotblocker in HS, but probably not bulky enough at this point.  Maybe Najee is stronger now and can help more, that may be our best shot. 


I do think we will be better at the 1-3 spots as Ajukwa should improve, hopefully Davis and Andrien do so as well.  Not sure who the backup pg will be - not that there are a ton of minutes there, but that should be interesting. 


As far as the next year's squad being even better that will depend on one thing and one thing only:  JD staying.  I'd expect him to test waters after this year if he has a good year.
