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!

Written by a former Valpo staff writer. Yeah, that's real legit.

The conference is pretty much up for grabs this season. I could see Bradley finishing ahead of any team in the conference at this point.

If we take two steps backwards in year three of a complete rebuild, with WSU gone, we may as well just give up on the entire program.
