I'd say 50/50. She'd need a 9-7 conference season and then 2 post-season wins. I think she'll be very close.
Massey currently ranks Rutgers 5th in the Big Ten and very close to 4th; Sagarin has them 3rd. If we conservatively say they're the 5th-best team in the conference, and if all games go chalk, Rutgers would finish 11-5 (with losses to Maryland twice, Ohio State, Iowa, and Michigan). Not all games will go chalk, of course, but I think they're more likely to end up 10-6 or 11-5, provided that their team remains healthy.
