This topic, unlike a year ago, is sure to produce a great deal of optimism.
It’s not that there wasn’t some optimism last fall — a couple of you accurately predicted IU’s regular season record — but expectations are sky high for 2012-2013 as some of the early preseason rankings having the Hoosiers in the top two nationally.
And so we open this thread again to get you on record with your prediction for IU’s record for the upcoming season.
Once again there are 13 non-conference games. 18 Big Ten games. A total of 31 contests. The schedule, for those who wish to give it a once over before locking in your prediction, is here.
Your reward? $50 to spend either in store or online with our friends at Underground Printing.
Here’s how it’ll work: This thread will remain open until the end of the month. Your guesses will then be locked in on October 1 and following the Michigan game next March, we’ll revisit the comments and pull out all of the correct guesses. Everyone that gets the regular season record correct will then be entered into a drawing for the prize.
Feel free to provide an explanation with your prediction, but please post the final record it as the first part of your comment. It makes for easier record keeping. Also, one entry per person, please.
