I'm here to make my predictions for 2011. I know, nobody likes predictions because they are just predictions, but I'm going off history and statistics. Some will be completely wrong and some will be purely statistically chosen with no opinion of mine involved. So here we go:
Week 1: vs. Tenn. Tech: (W) 33-9
Week 2: @ Iowa State: (W) 28-3
Week 3: vs. Pitt: (W) 21-20
Week 4: vs. ULM: (W) 34-12
Week 6: @ Penn St.: (W) 24-12
Week 7: vs. jNW: (L) 20-14
Week 8: vs. Indiana: (W) 35-16
Week 9: @ Minn.: (W) 27-12
Week 10: vs. Mich: (W) 34-28
Week 11: vs. Mich. St.: (W) 21-12
Week 12: @ Purdue: (L) 22-17
Week 13: @ Nebraska: (L) 35-28
9-3 with a possible bowl win. Pretty good. These are almost pure statistics tho. A few assumptions and a few miscalculations, but overall a pretty statistical look of how the season could turn out. The only problem is, is that the games we lose we can win, and the games we win we can lose. I think 9-3 is very optimistic but also doable. I did not factor in the loss of Stanzi or anyone else so this goes off 3 years of Stanzi's reign at QB (all statistics come from 2008-2010).
Complain all you want, but this is just one prediction.
