    Looking at the schedule:

    2016 Schedule:
    CSU (Neutral) - Sat, Sep 3

    Michigan (Away) - Sat, Sep 17
    Pac-12 - 5 Home (ARIZONA STATE-OREGON STATE-UCLA-UTAH-WASHINGTON STATE), 4 Away (ARIZONA-STANFORD-OREGON-USC)

    What are your thoughts on this? What is your potential W-L record after looking at the first 9 games of htis season?

    CSU-WIN
    ID ST-WIN
    MICH-LOSS
    ASU-LOSS
    OREGON ST-WIN
    UCLA-WIN ??
    UTAH-LOSS ??
    WASH ST-WIN

    Utah at home without Wilson or Booker better be a win.

    CSU, ID St, OSU, Utah, WA St, AZ are the wins I see
    Mich, Furd, UO, USC more than likely loses due to solid upper tier teams on the road
    ASU, UCLA winnable due to being home but just as easily losses

    The road slate is rough looking right now, but we will see what happens this off-season with potential coaching turn over.

    Well, start with the obvious - must beat CSU.
    Probable wins - Idaho State, Oregon State
    Should win - Arizona, Wazzou, Utah
    Could win - UCLA, ASU, Oregon
    No shot - Michigan, Stanford, SC

    So to me, the ceiling is 9-3, but the reality is 6-6, maybe better, hopefully not worse.

    2016 Schedule:
    CSU-WIN
    ID ST-WIN
    MICH-LOSS
    ASU-Win(finally beat those ****ers)
    OREGON ST-WIN
    UCLA-WIN (Finally beat those ****ers)
    UTAH-LOSS (They surprise us after we beat them this year)
    WASH ST-WIN
    AZ-WIN
    STAN- Somehow win this?
    OREGON- Loss. Oregon gets back on track.
    USC- Loss. They hire a real coach. Out played.

    7-5 most likely.
    Sefo wins us the bowl game.

    Montez comes in 2017 as a R-So, leads us to the Pac-12 championship game.

    I think the goal for 2016 has to be a winning season too. 7-6 at a minimum.

    Do we play Oregon every year? I know we shouldn't, but it seriously feels like we do.

    We got a poor draw in the rotation when we started the conference we play every team in the other division 8 out of 12 years. We will have played Oregon 6 straight, before we get a break .

    Doesn't Michigan lose something like 25-30 seniors after this year? They will more than likely be breaking in a new QB next year so we will see how they do out of the gate.

    To early to tell. With all the potential openings we could have up to three or so P12 schools on the schedule with new coaching staffs in their transition year. Rich Rod's name is coming up for a lot of the eastern openings and if a couple more SEC jobs come open or Strong ends up bailing Texas for Miami then Graham could theoretically be gone as well. Mora bats his eyes at everybody, particularly the NFL, and I wouldn't be shocked if someone made a run at Whittingham either.

    I predict most will predict a 7-8 win season in the season prediction thread next year, and then backtrack as hard as they can by midseason. Perhaps earlier if we eff up the CSU game.

    Hope is what keeps fans coming back year after year. I don't see anything wrong with it, no matter how misguided it may be.

    I didn't say there was anything wrong with it, just that it is, often, and especially over the last decade, severely misguided.

    My expectations are 2 OOC wins and 3 Pac wins. It's hard for me to make the jump to believe they'll start closing games until proven otherwise. Less than 5 = disappointment, more than 5 = gravy.

    Side note: looking at 2017 (CSU, UNCO, Tex St), that's our year to make legitimate noise.

    Sorry you can't handle my prediction for 2016. If past performance is any indicator of future results, I will have nailed it.

    You're so smart. I wish I could be half as smart as you.

    One day you'll grow past your passive-aggressive instincts and learn to just state why you're irritated.

    The road schedule looks brutal on paper.

    F**k that.

    Year 4 with a veteran team and a senior QB and 5 wins is gravy? If that's the case, we should fire Mac now.

    Whatever you say. You're the king of predictions. Only you would know what my future holds.

    That schedule looks daunting right now. We need some teams to fall off.

    During current season: Next year is the year baby!
    Next offseason: Bowl game or bust
    Fall Camp: 8 wins!!!!
    After non-conf: What do you expect? We're young and we were burned to the ground. Blame the last coach
    During season: Next year is the year!

    And so on. This basically sums up every allbuffs cycle since 2005
