My goal is to win at least 10 SEC games. That would probably put us in the top half of the SEC.

10 SEC wins is not reasonable for this year. 8 wins would be impressive for this team. We're not going to be that great this year, next year is when you can expect to start being pretty decent.

If we can play good defense and shoot the ball at a decent percentage, we could finish in the top 6 unless the SEC is a lot better than it's been the last two years. I'm anticipating a bubble team by mid-February. Not saying we make the Dance, but I think we'll get consideration along the way. May depend on how the guys improve throughout the season and our strength of schedule down the stretch.

A NIT berth would be great with all things considered.

Default Re: CBSSports.com Panel Picks The SEC

Taking a look at the schedule, I expect around a 7-6 non-conference record. I see losses @ Baylor, @ Clemson, @ Oklahoma St., vs. St. Mary's in Honolulu, and another loss against a team TBD in Hawaii (I have us going 1-2 in Hawaii). I also expect another slip-up along the way, possibly to Akron, who was an NCAA Tournament team last year (12 seed). We have a very challenging non-conference schedule considering our team's ability and experience.

As far as conference play, there aren't any games that you can look at and say "We should definitely win that game." However, aside from our games against Florida and Kentucky there aren't any games where we should be totally outmatched.

I'd look for us to take some games at home, such as Texas A&M, Auburn, Vandy, and UGA. I also think we can sneak a few games on the road, perhaps Miss St and Auburn. I'd say over/under 5 or 6 conference wins, so I'll put on the garnet shades and say we go 6-12 in conference.

That would put us at 13-18 (6-12 SEC). Last year we were 14-18 (4-14), but with one of the easiest non-conference schedules in the nation. So 13-18 (6-12) would be an improvement. If we can sneak a few more conference games, we could be in the bubble conversation for the NIT, which would be fantastic for this team. I think shooting for .500 overall would be a great goal for this team and I'd be satisfied with that result considering the team we have.

One thing I completely forgot about was that Ty Johnson and Bruce won't be able to play until sometime in December. So given that dose of fact, maybe iPull4USC's prediction is a good indication of how many games we win, although I think 8 wins in the SEC is doable.

We will be a better team than last year. I will guarantee that.

I definitely think we'll be better, but I'm not sure if it will be reflected in the record. I think the realistic goal is to finish .500 in conference play and be in the running for an NIT bid. That said, I can't wait for basketball season and am excited to see how the program advances in year 2 under Martin.

4-14 last year in the SEC... I think we will improve as the season goes along... I'm thinking 7-11 or so... With our OOC being much stronger, .500 might be about what to expect overall

If fans come out and support the team for once in their lives, this team could be a lot better than past years.

The nerves of a young team can be eased by a friendly crowd environment that encourages them. Instead they just get spoiled students sitting on their hands talking about football and shoveling little caesars in their pieholes.

silly post, as fans we talk about realistic goals, of course the coach thinks they can win every game and doesn't want to hear negative, but the OP has a point, 8 would be impressive, especially after we only won a few last year.
