I’m going to say 23-8. I’m definitely biasing the selection upwards, but that schedule is IMO more favorable than last year’s. I can’t imagine us going worse than 10-2 in conference. Only games I see as losses are Arizona on the road and one of the November tournament games.

We have a very favorable start to SEC play which I hope will allow us to avoid some extra losses like in year’s past as we shake off the rust and gel as a team. I think realistically 22-9 is a safer bet, but we get Texas at home, and the schedule really just lines up a lot better this year than in recent year’s.

25-6 with a healthy ZZ for the whole year. Also need Edwards ready to play up to 10 minutes a game.
20-11 if ZZ doesn't play at all.

ZZ(33 min), Vescovi(33), JJJ(28), ORN(25), Phillips(25), ---Key(22), Aidoo(18), Plavsic(10), Edwards(6)

21-10 which sounds bad now that we’ve seen so much success but that’s a dang good season. I feel like the loss of KC is worth 3 or so losses compared to last season record. His perimeter athleticism on offense and maybe even more importantly, defense, is something we will lack this year. Still a great season and hopes for a run in the post season.

28-3….SV & JJJ end their college careers on a high note playing like pros. Key with a surprising contribution. Aidoo healthy and UP making some progress. Phillips plays like a 1&done. Top seed in one of the regions and the forum is finally rid of the drive by trolls!

22-9.

Which will be followed up by a disappointing March Madness exit filled with excuses of how we faced someone who shouldn’t have been seeded that low or we faced the hottest team on the planet.
