Winged Warrior
I would like to politely submit to the league that I cannot wait until November and would prefer that the season start in August at the same time as football.
7 patsies mixed in with 4 neutral court tough games UCLA, Baylor/Virgina Winner, Texas, Missouri and one home tough game Syracuse

Probable record

JMO 9-2 going into conference play (not including exhibition vs Quincy).

JMO 9-2 going into conference play

Not that these are accurate, but Barttorvik projects (7) UCLA, (2) Baylor, and (10) Texas ranked ahead of us, and (16) Virginia just behind us.

9-2 would be pretty good from that standpoint. Although it's kind of a feast or famine since most of the others are so low in the rankings. Notable others (48) Misery (84) Syracuse.
idk, .... all hype and tons of potential. For an even $$ bet - I have to go with a top 3 B10 finish and a 6 seed or better right now.
My guess on big ten e finishing odds for the Illinois next year something like this for finish.

Under 4.5 is probably -155
Under 3.5 is probably +100
Under 2.5 is probably +150
Under 1.5 is probably +200

Top 3 seems reasonable... Maybe I am biased and optimistic.
