    I know this might be redundant so if you are offended just move along. Other polls have been based on what people think they will win or want Nebraska to win. But what number would of wins would make you feel they meet your expectations?

    I think they will hit the 7 or 8 win mark, so 9 would be great.

    I can't really put a number on it. I'll take < .500 if the play is spirited and no one cashes in if/when the going gets tough. That said, I'd be sorely disappointed in another 4-8 campaign.

    That is fair and I thought of that when putting the poll together. There just wasn't a way to factor that in. I also agree that I can stand more losses if we look competitive. However at the end of the year......Wins and Losses are the final grade so I stuck with that out of simplicity.

    I voted based on the thread title only to see the poll title was different.:O O:

    I expect 7-8 wins...9 would exceed expectation but it would not shock me.

    Its so easy to jump on the hype train, but 6 - 7 wins would be more than acceptable for the first year. Any more than that number would be very exciting. I think there is a potential to reach 9 wins, but that would include a lot of luck and some other teams just shooting themselves in the foot. Our schedule this year is just brutal.

    All the wins will probably meet my expectations...now lets talk loses.

    (This is based on the thread title, not the stupid reworded question...which is now no fun)

    Seven wins in the regular season. Improvement in all phases of the game and the 'feel' that the program is headed for bigger and better things.

    I actually would have preferred the first title question.

    Akron -- I expect a win
    Colorado -- I expect a win
    Troy -- I expect a win
    Michigan -- I expect a loss but desire a win
    Purdue -- I expect a win
    Wisconsin -- I expect a loss
    Northwestern -- I expect a loss but desire a win
    Minnesota -- I expect a win
    Ohio St. -- I expect a loss
    Illinois -- I expect a win
    Michigan St. -- I expect a win but could be disappointed
    Iowa -- I expect a win but could be disappointed

    So I guess that puts me at 8 wins. Will be disappointed if we do lose to MI, NW, MSU, or IA...if we don't play a hard fought fight. But a 8 win season I will be good, 6 wins I will be disappointed, less than that I will be not happy with the season.
