Murray’s is a reasonable forecast. I would pick USU to finish 7th just ahead of the Rebels. Every fan believes the team they root for will be better than most others predict. I don’l like seeing my Aggies picked to finish 8th in an 11-team conference. But neither do I believe we’ll be a better team this year than we were last year. And we finished alone in 7th place then. About the only thing going for us is that we couldn’t possibly be worse in close games than we were last year.

I think he makes a decent point about USU's floor not being super low. I would guess barring injuries the floor is 7th or 8th, but the ceiling is probably only 5th or so, maybe 4th if the transfers really hit. I view this as basically year 2 of a couple year rebuild, so if we ended up 5th or 6th, I wouldn't be mad as long as the program felt like it had a bit of momentum.

The Aggies were horrible at games decided within a few points. They win half of those games they would have been in probably 5th place. They obviously didn't do that. Not sure this team is any better, but we shall see.

so instead of losing close games, we'll lose more bigly?
