Based upon the way the team is playing now, the way they are progressing and our remaining schedule - where do you see this team at the end of the season?

Over.

Losses @ X, @ BYU, @ SMC, one weird loss like @ USF/SCU and a loss in March NCAA = 5 additional losses

Four, if you count the March Maddness. THat to me is still a great year. They have been fun to watch so far and I think we are going to see some more growing during the year.

In my question, I did not take into consideration any tournament loss, my fault for not making it clear; I was more interested in what people thought about our record for the rest of the regular season.

Thanks for pointing that out

Under. @ Xavier, @ BYU, NCAAs.

Push, if we're just talking regular season. @X, @BYU, @SMC and the inevitable head-scratcher at somebody like Pepperdine or Santa Clara.

Four sounds about right. Three tough road games-X, BYU, SMC- Zags lose 2. Then 2 random losses when somebody gets hot or Zags have an off night.

One loss is assured..the last one. Right now, we do not have the talent to beat any of the top 6 or so. I doubt we'll rise to their level.... maybe next if we find a very very athletic big who can score and defend.
Can we win the rest of our games? Yes. X is th ebiggest win we could find right about now. SMC is tough but we can beat them twice. BYU is another story. I still cannot get a solid read on who they are outside of one superior big man.

So one loss is certain. I'd say running the table in the WCC is unlikely but we could if the focus is there for us. I'd guess 2 losses in the WCC...so 3 is likely..which isn't bad...a 5 loss season. Next year will be the "one" for us. We have 3's and very good guards. Where the 4's and 5's (not sure we need a 5) shake out will be the main issue.

For now though I'd say 5 losses for the year. Superior season. NCAA? I'd say a Sweet 16..or with some luck..an E 8 but we'd need serious luck to get to the 8. All the kids are trying like crazy. I don't see a slacker anywhere. As a team, this one is the best since in several seasons. Pals and these kids like each other.

Under. X is a strong possibility, but one we could steal. I think we will lose @Byu and one game we don't expect, like Peperdine. That's 3 more regular season losses (if we do lose to OOC Xavier).

Plus we end up at another Sweet 16- next year elite 8.

Consensus: It's just not "our" year (yet). Over.

I think if you add them up per Dixies Qualification (thru end of conference play and before WCC Tourney and NCAA Tourney), only four actually said more than 4 losses in regular conference play- the rest sat at four or under. So, so far Push or under. But I should wait until everyone has their say...

Speaking of that last loss, does anybody see a Final Four run for these Zags?

Push - 4 is about right. 5 if you count the NCAA tourney

I think @smc and @ BYU will be toughest games we have left. I have a vs good feeling @X.

I think under. Losses @byu and @usf.

(not including any tournament games because I have no clue who we are playing)

Yes. In the infinite vastness of the future, if the asteroid doesn't hit first.

Has the voting moved the line yet? I'm waiting for it to hit 4.5 to commit, then I'll take the under.

Butler / VCU made it just last season. It could happen.

Tongue in cheek. My opinion is that the best chance will come when Bell/Pangos are vets. The planets need to align, as they did for the above.

Three conference losses and win the WCC tournament. The WCC will be brutally tough with several nail biters that could go either way. I say GU only loses three of them.

Five losses total for the entire season not counting the NCAA tournament.

That is exactly where I am MickMick and I dearly hope that 3 losses will be enough to win the regular season title. I really feel that the streak of titles is something very special, something more important than winning a game or two in the tournament (winning more than 2 in the tournament becomes a VERY big deal, of course).

Do you (and anyone?) think that 3 losses will suffice for a conference championship? I just think it will be tough for anyone to get through with only 3.

Just thought I would go back in the old records and see what we thought back then. People at times forget where we were and how far we have come. Most of us would have been happy with about 5 or 6 losses. Now as the year as gone on, 4 total seems to be too many.

My guess is one more before the NCAA. And that to me is still a great year.
