5-5 sounds about right to me, considering that we are 4-4 so far and haven't beaten anyone good all year.

Duquesne – W

Yep, mark me down 5-5 too. We sure as hell aren't going to win @St. Bonnie, @VCU, Mason will beat us once in those back to backs. Dayton and SLU certainly are equally good teams to us, we don't beat teams that are equally good very often.

At best, we are 6-4.

We beat Duquesne, split with Mason. And we definitely aren't winning at VCU. We aren't winning on senior night with St.Bon.

Which leaves us at our norm as a mid pack around .500 team. This can’t be right since we were projected 2 preseason. The pollsters just don’t get us, do they?

So basically we lose to any half way decent team?
I don't want to believe it, but it has worked so far this year...

Although we probably lose at GMU and win one of the home western games SLU/UD...

We have been in just about all the games against decent teams, but out late game performances have killed us.

Almost impossible to happen this way, but it has, and there are too many reasons why. What are the odds of losing all 50 50 games? Some may consider RI a 50 50, but I’m excluding them.

This seems right to me, although I could see us being swept by Mason and beating either SLU or UD @ home

I find it hard to argue with this one. Depressingly.

If the percentages hold to form at 0.619 then we’ll win 6 of the coming 10. This of course presumes the upcoming 10 are equivalent in difficulty to the prior 21 which is perhaps dubious.

DUQ/LAS/GW all winnable. Maybe split with GMU, lucky split with SBU? That’s 5, would need to steal another one in there somewhere.

We’re not going 9-1.

I do believe it. I may have to revise in two weeks, but this is my best prediction right now.
I think we either go 3-7 or 9-1. I like the latter right now.
I like your enthusiasm LI, but you may be falling into the classic "Queally Trap": past mediocre results are indicative of future excellent returns.

It is a common trap that envelopes our program and the close followers, I know very well I was in this QT for 6-7 years so I am not casting stones here, just a little :)

I think we go 6-4 the rest of the way. 19-12 is a perfect Mooney regular season record for this club. We win one in DC and tout our "20 win season". The beat goes on.
And then after we get eliminated in A-10 tourney, Mooney will proclaim how much this team improved throughout the season and state how eager his team is to continue to play in the postseason. Anyone know if Mooney has a contract bonus for playing in the NIT, I bet that will probably pay for a nice little European vacation for his family in the offseason.

I will now predict regression to the mean.

We will not lose again until we have as many wins in the last 6 seasons (including this one) as we have been predicted to have.
