My minimum threshold of success never falls below this: over.500 in conference play and no worse than 1-1 against Iowa/Wisconsin. Given that Fleck is in his first year, reaching that level would absolutely be a success to me. We haven't met that modest threshold much during my lifetime, so hopefully this is the coach that starts doing it consistently. His record in year one or year two isn't near as important to me as how he sets up the program for consistent success.
Looking forward to seeing this thread at least 15 more times before the start of the season.
Somebody blasted me on another thread because I wrote GH folks were cynical. Gosh.
From here on out only having 1 new 2017 season prediction thread per month, instead of 1 new one per week.
I don't get the expectation that we should be better than last year. We will be starting a QB who has little to no game experience, we lost our 2 best O-lineman, what would have our starting 2 CBs, plus Travis. Not to mention a new staff, culture, and systems. 7 wins is probably about where we end up.
If you put a gun to my head, I'd say get the d@mn axe!
The rest is gravy train.
