2023 Record: 7 wins 5 losses
Margin of error, VERY HIGH-could swing from worse scenario 4-8 to best of 7-5
Something just occurred to me -
This is the first time in 3 years where I've believed a take like "worst-case scenario of 4-8." Under TFG, after that first season I realized there were no guaranteed wins. Many kept posting pre-season "worst case scenarios" having 3 wins, etc - but seriously, given how we played under the last staff, we could easily have lost any game. I didn't see Western Carolina as a likely loss this year - but I in no way saw it as a guaranteed win.
While I miss the CPK years where the floor most of us expected was 6 wins, being able to look at the schedule and honestly say, "We should win 4 out of 12 games" is something I can't believe I haven't been able to think for 3 years. And yet I really feel it, after the turnaround during last year's season. I've missed that.
