2. UNI
3. ISUr
4. Missouri State
5. Bradley
6. Valpo
7. SIU

2. Missouri State - AJ is a beast, but maybe it's just me but I think this team just feels like when the Birds had Osiris, is he enough to get this team over the hump with a below average coach, I say no. - 12-6

3. Illinois State - If the Birds have a good year, then we can say Dirty Dan is a good coach. I am still not convinced, even though I want to be. Lost a ton, but still enough there to hang around and be a tough team. 11-7

4. Southern Illinois - Is 4th enough for Barry to keep his job? 10-8

5. Bradley - I would love to pick them higher, but I think they have a good coach and are on the way back up. Team got better throughout the year, not as many wins, but still were generally competitive. 10-8

6. Loyola - Am I the only one who doesn't think this team is that good? Not as if they were that good last year in a down league. I can't believe that Porter will know what to do with that recruiting class either. I guess this is where I am going out on a limb. Ingram is a stud, and maybe I have them low, but I think that SIU and Bradley are just better. 9-9

7. Drake - 6-12 - Drake will win 2 games they shouldn't, other than that, same old Drake

8. Valpo - 6-12 - No clue about Valpo, usually a good program, but I am guessing this is a year to get acclimated

9. Evan - 4-14, bye bye Fat Marty

10. ISUb - 4-14, poor Brenton Scott

You may want to rethink the math here.

He doesn't realize for every win their is a loss. So, the outcome must be 90-90. Right now he has 85 wins which is impossible unless games get cancelled..

And, even if games got cancelled, there would not be 95 losses like he predicted. :Cheers:

Based on latest developments...ISU Red now more than likely to play-in this year. Love it. After seven years in the abyss, nothing would make me happier than switching places with Muller....please make it so

In his defense we can probably just count all Drake, isub, and evansville wins as losses...

This is such guesswork at this point, but her is my shot;

1) Loyola-with MSU top talent in the league
2) MSU- as above. Not sure who has the better coach, although I think Moser is getting better.
3) ISU RED- Lot's of new talent.
4) SIU- seems like a pretty solid team and Barry can coach some.
5) Bradley- Braves return everyone, gotta think they move up.
6) Drake- New coach who knows what he is doing. A bunch of upperclassmen.
7) Valpo- seem solid, could see them moving up. some nice players.
8) UNI-I'm so puzzled by the first and second place predictions.
9) ISU BLUE- They seem very excited about heir new players.
10) Evansville- doesn't seem like they are going to be too enthused this year.

Doesn't understand why team that hasn't finished in the bottom half in 14 years is picked towards the top of the league. Picks team that Thursday night is named after with a new coach and no talent for 6th. Sound reasoning.

The Vegas Casino's must be teaming up with Allegiant Air out of Peoria to increase travel out there. Sounds like there are quite a few Peoria folks that will take a bet on that one!
