I'm typically conservative when it comes to UCF predictions, and in the past, it's served me well (except for last year of course :john: ). This year, with our improved coaching and conditioning, I'll say we beat nearly all our opponents who are not MACC contenders or BCS. I say "nearly" because we typically lose to someone we should beat. Perhaps this will change now with O'Leary. I also think the sun will shine on us one Saturday and we'll beat a favored team.

5-6 is my prediction. UW, WVU, PSU, NIU, MUg, and MUr are in the BCS/MACC catagory. UB, AKR, OU, BSU, and KSU are the opponents our improved team can hopefully beat. I'll assume we beat one of the first six teams mentioned above, and we lose to one of the later five.

I'd be ecstatic with a winning season, but I don't think this will be the year.

I'm saying 6-5, which includes a victory at home against West Virginia. Later on, I may change my prediction depending on how things go in fall practice.

I'm going with 4-7. I'm not sold yet on Moffett or the defense. One road win at Buffalo, and 3 home wins against Akron, Ohio, and Kent. This MAC schedule sucks. I can't wait to get into C-USA.

7-4 or 6-5 at best. The defense is still weak and the offense is unpredictable. If not for playing in the MAC, it could be worse.

Folks, lets be honest. If we have another losing season, then we wasted our money with O'Leary. Coach K could lead us to a losing season. That's not what we dished out that huge money for.

Come on, is this really too much to ask for? Out of both MU's, NIU, WVU, Penn State, and Wiscosin....you're telling me we can't muster just ONE win out of that group? Obviously, we SHOULD beat the low level MAC teams.

I've been hearing repeatedly how we're a "sleeping giant" and what great POTENTIAL we have. Well, great. Then do something about it. We're not asking for a top 25 ranking off the bat here, we're talking about a friggin winning season.

If we have a losing season, IMO, O'Leary was a huge waste of money.

When's the last time we actually beat a team with a winning record?

I had to check for myself, and not including FAU last year who's not IA, it was the fake Miami (11-23-02) who had a 7-5 record.

6-5 is certainly attainable, but we have issues with depth at a number of positions right now. Will we be ready to beat a Wisconsin, West Virginia, Penn State, or any top MAC team? George O'Leary and his staff have quite a task on their hands.

Like I said, we brought O'Leary in to win big games. Coach K mastered beating the crap teams and losing to every good team.

You can't write O'Leary off as a waste of money after one season. That's insane.
