Any season they get to a bowl game generally turns out to be "good" for me..but like other posters have said, they have to build on last year so I'm rolling with 8 wins..and that can include the bowl game.
9 regular season wins should be the standard this year. We have to start beating teams like Florida and LSU to solidify the fact that we have indeed turned the corner and continue to generate recruiting excitement. Beating LSU on the road would be huge for the confidence of the players.
Having said that, 8 wins would not constitute a disaster by any stretch of the imagination.
We did overachieve. But we also could’ve beat ole miss and Pitt. Last year seemed like 2015 to me, when we lost so many games by such a small margin. We really could’ve, and in my opinion should’ve, won 9 games last year. If we won 7 this year I’d be disappointed. It wouldn’t be alarming but I think we should win more.
