POLL: Record Over the Next 6 Games
« on: January 17, 2022, 03:15:31 AM »
Next 6 games huge for this team and trajectory of the program.

3 - 3 would be an overachieving miracle IMHO.

I predict 2 home wins.

With a lot of luck, steal one away at UCONN.

But probably 2-4.

Nova is only .500 in Milwaukee since 2007...

I went with 3-3. With two road games facing opponents out for blood after losing their first matchup with us plus Nova in Philly, it's a tall order for our guys to win one of those but a Providence road win is not out of the question. Of course neither are the other two games, but I think we lose them. I'm really hoping for a W in our home game vs. Nova. I think we beat Xavier. UCONN is one BE team I simply cannot get a feel for. The other such team is St. Johns, and yeah- I know. they are not in the next six.

I’m stuck between 1-5 and 2-4, so I went with 1-5.

MU will be somewhere between slight and solid underdogs in all of these games. Winning on the road is tough against anyone, but especially against teams in the top half of the league.

I expect MU to play teams tough, but I’m not very confident in their ability to close out close games on the road.

If you told me now they could go 2-4 without playing the games I would take it. 3-3 would be a significant accomplishment and put them in great position to pin down an NCAA bid by winning some games they should win down the stretch.

Marquette will be in a good place going 3-3 in the next 6 games, but I’d hardly call that an “overachieving miracle.” We have a big time coach now who is proven to be successful at this level and I’m confident we’ll be better the second time we face these teams.

There doesn’t necessarily need to be that inevitable head scratching clunker that happened every other game in conference the past 7 years. Consistency over a long stretch of games is actually possible at this level. I know that’s become hard to believe as an MU fan.

2-4  I feel that would be a solid/good outcome, despite greedily wanting more wins, it's a tough slate of games with only 2 of the 6 at home.  I think we beat Xavier at home, and Providence on the road.  Tight games in the other 4 but not sure I can see us winning on the road at UConn or Seton Hall.

I am expecting a head-scratching clunker among the next 6 games and I look forward to this board imploding... lol.

2-4 among the next 6 gets us to 6-7 in the league. After that, you win 5 of the next 7 against the bottom of the league to bring us 11-9 overall - we've all gotta be ecstatic about that.

For the first time in a long time, I am only looking one game at time. The upcoming schedule is very tough and knowing how guys respond to good or bad games is tough to predict. This team has shown they are tough mentally and they are going to need all of that toughness over next three weeks. They are playing well, look confident and I hope that carries over during this stretch.

Good point. Haven't read much about that - are they planning on rescheduling? Or only if necessary?

Scoop

In addition to taking it one game at time, I am nervous for the first time in nearly a decade. The boys have their tourney hopes at their fingertips and we will see if they deliver the goods. My gut tells me that they will continue to surprise on the upside, what that means over next six is up for debate. That said, 2-4 would be disappointing to me.

Beat Nova on Wednesday. Have an oddly good feeling about it like I did the Illini game.

To repeat what I said in another thread- I hope the game is not rescheduled. St. Johns at Carnesecca is scary. If they beat us and end up maybe #9 in the BE, it's not a good look. I hope that we get out of a rescheduled game and play a team like VCU in Milwaukee in lieu of St. Johns in NY.

And risk our big men transferring to VCU and Richmond?

In all seriousness, are any other BE teams adding non-conference games? This far into the season and with a few teams with multiple games to make up, I have to think decisions need to be made soon. MU has actually been pretty lucky in postponed games so far.

Yea, I meant more from other teams. I think Shaka and the team should be applauded for having everyone vaccinated and boosted so quickly.

The fun thing about being fans is that we don't have to take it one game at a time. If we take it 3 or 5 or 7 games at a time, it doesn't affect anything! But I do get what you are saying.

Were projected to win 1.83 games over this stretch. so the correct answer is 2-4.

Thankfully, such projections mean squat.

I KNEW it was you! I knew it!

If I've gotta be serious, I'll go with at least 3-3. I'd be more surprised by 1-5 than I would by 5-1. I'm really liking this team's chutzpah!

I'm pretty set on the fact that it will be 2-4. And im guessing 2 of the 4 losses will be competitive if not completely down to the wire. I think at Nova and one of the other road games we mostly get crushed.

I'd actually be pretty pretty surprised both ways(worse than 2-4 or better).

Would absolutely love getting 3 wins though. Man that would put us in good shape.

My only reason for going one at time is because a lot has changed in two weeks. I would not be surprised if they are in better position a week from now. I said I would be disappointed at 2-4.
