    Going to do you one better ad predict 8 - 12. Not sold on the team from what I've seen.

    As an aside, don't think the ladies are as good as their ranking (thought this even before the Michigan loss) and see them 2 games over .500 in the Big Ten.

    They will find 10 more wins. Coffey and Murphy get it done.
    Attention: If the above comment sounds puzzling, adjust your sarcasm setting and try again.

    I stand corrected. Forgot about the increase to 20 B1G games.

    I don't think 7 conference wins will get us to the NIT. 8 probably will.

    Actually, looking at the schedule i change mine to 13. No worse than 5-2 after 7. I am in the minority that the conference is not that great. I see Purdue and IOWA as way over ranked. Gophers no worse than 4th

    7 wins most definitely gets you in the worthless NIT.

    This conference is the best in the land and it's not close. 9-10 conference wins if a few are the right ones and we are in the dance or at least on the bubble. Who cares about the NIT anyways. I would rather they just declined invites to that turd tournament. It's an embarrassment to even care about the NIT.

    I'm predicting 10-10 and a tourney bid.

    So a majority expect a banner year, at least when measured against the success of the last two decades. And a not inconsiderable group of fans wants the coach fired. The same coach who won 11 conference games two years ago.

    Hmmm.

    There are 20 conference games now. Makes a big difference when projecting the win total.

    Apparently you haven't checked out the recent history of the NIT (although your ignorance didn't discourage you from giving that pointless little rant). There are only 32 teams and teams who win their regular conference seasons but lose in their conference tournaments are given automatic bids. There are usually at least 10 of those each year so that leaves only 22 or fewer at large bids. 7 conference wins would equal a 17-14 regular season. Win one and lose one in the Big Ten tournament and the record is 18-15. The Gophers did that in 2015 and didn't get an invite to the NIT. Maryland had a better record than that last season and didn't get an invite.

    As for the rest of your meaningless bluster, I have no opinion.

    Is the ACC 11-7 against the Big 10 ? I think the bottom 6 in the Big 10 is better than the Bottom 6 in the ACC, the middle is close but the top of the ACC is loaded.

    I had us at 11 or 12. Still think we could have been there. Squandered some chances by not showing up for a few games.
