Still think it is early to make these projections since we don't have the full roster yet. But based on how things are shaping up I would say this is probably the floor in terms of how the season will go. If we get Miller from A&M I could see that win total bumping up some and the overall record pushing out closer to .500.Yeah. Something like 10–21 (4-16)
or in that neighborhood
Even if we get A&M guys or other names I’ve seen floated.Still think it is early to make these projections since we don't have the full roster yet.

I will be shocked if we are in the NCAA mix at all next year. If we are, that will get people off of Johnson's back quickly. But a lot of things would all have to break right for that to happen.Even if we get A&M guys or other names I’ve seen floated.
I see the ceiling as the 9-10 range in conference. Which probably puts my range as:
8-22 (2-18) to 13-17 (6–14)
Unless all of a sudden carr comes back or something. There isn’t anybody considering us that gets added that moves us to becoming a bubble team except maybe carr. We weren’t on the bubble with carr.
There is some precedent that the coaches would prefer a more difficult schedule.Need to know roster and schedule before taking a stab at record. Would imagine non-con schedule will be heavy on marshmallows.
Penn state, northwestern, rutgers, Nebraska, and in my opinion, Iowa
I agree....Looking at several Big Ten rosters, almost every team will freely score at will in the paint against Minnesota, without any added size to keep teams honest or somewhat rebound & defend the rim, they will be lucky to win a handful of games....With a new roster of kids who were all the center of attention on their bad low-major teams, it will take time for them to know and accept their roles. Add the rigors of the B1G and this team will be hard pressed to match Clem's first season of 9-19. My guess is somewhere between 3 and 8 wins. This is also predicated on whether or not we get some help at center. Currently we have no presence down low and will get destroyed in the post.
Came here to basically say this. I think 14 is a little high by maybe a game or two, but agree with the low end around 9. Hope to God I'm wrong, but I have not heard anything from BJ regarding offense or defense that gives me confidence in his 'system'.I think those are reasonable floor and ceiling marks so I'll second your forecast.
6 winsJust for reference: We finished 14-15, 6-14 B1G this year.
Pitino year 1: 25-13, 8-10 B1G (previous year: 21-13, 8-10 B1G)
Tubby year 1: 20-14, 8-10 B1G (previous year: 9-22, 3-13 B1G)
Monson year 1: 12-16, 4-12 B1G (previous year: 17-11, 8-8 B1G)
Clem year 1: 9-19, 2-16 B1G (previous year: 15-16, 5-13 B1G)
Obviously this will depend on the roster. If we are getting a majority of transfers from mid-majors and we keep Pohto and Thompson I say high ceiling 14 wins, low 9 wins.
