I voted 3 games. Baylor, @ ND... and either ND again..... or hopefully @ Duke. I didnt read the whole question before i voted.... my votes were based on regular season and Big East tournament.
Thanks for an outside/objective view.

I went with 3 because of Maya's absence. She would have gotten my estimate to 2 or fewer, all on her own.

Two more thoughts:

1. Which "problem" would we rather have? A. Tiff is somewhat inconsistent, what will she bring tonight? B. Tiff is gone, how will we replace her? This should be a no-brainer. She has POY talent.

2. Kaleena Lewis lost 7 games in 4 years of high school against absolute top level competition. Sorry, she is not losing 8 games. Not this year. Not in her college career.

My favorites to make the Final 4 would be UCONN, Baylor, and ND. Next best chances are Stanford, Tenn, and TAMU. Sleeper picks are Miami and Duke. Stanford is pretty much already written in for the #1 seed in the West.

One in December, one in January and one in February, that's it. By then our freshmen will not play like freshmen.

Bump. Just a reminder of how folks were viewing this season in October.

Geez, you change your avatar more often than your hairdo (a guess). I miss Pris :(.

in my original post I said 4-5. I still think that will be the number. Three plus a loss against ND and in the NCAA's. Not a bad result for this team.

One or two loses to ND and NCAA? UCONN will probably play ND two more times before an Elite Eight loss.

:rolleyes: Well.... i was kinda on target.... 3 losses before the NCAA's. That still could happen.

Was totally wrong about TAMU..... injuries to Miami and Duke probably will prevent them from being a sleeper. Was totally right about Stanford.... in fact... I have them penciled in as a #2 seed in the West in 2013, and either a #1 or #2 in the west in 2014 :rolleyes:

So far I'm right on. All we have to do is lose no more games just like Replicant says.

Including all tournaments, how many games will UConn lose this year?
Thanks for posting this. Should bring everybody back from the ledge. Team seems to be meeting most expectations.

I did not expect last night's loss. I also did not think we would be 0-3 in 50-50 games. I will go out on a limb and say that we beat Pitt and Marquette. Then the number of losses is 3, 4, 5, or 6. Based on last night and lack of improvement in key areas, here are the big hurdles:

Notre Dame regular season

Big East tourney semis and finals

NCAA 3rd or 4th round and later

I had thought that we would make the BE finals and Final Four with near certainty. Now. I am not so sure, especially if we have bad matchups. After last night, I don't think the Hartford or Kingston venues guarantee anything.
