With just around three weeks to go until the start of the 2014-2015 season we felt it was time to roll out our staff predictions for every single game of the slate. A lot can change in the course of a season including injuries, eligibility issues, suspensions, etc. not only to our club but to that of our foes as well. With that in mind, these picks have to be taken with a slight grain of salt. These picks are rather our best guess at the Bonnies final record in 2014-’15 broken down game by game. It will certainly be interesting to revisit these picks at the end of the non-conference portion of the schedule and then again at the end of the year. In the coming week we’ll further break down the season ahead and look at best case/worst case scenarios for the team as a whole, and individual players.One thought that I do have at this moment is that the addition of two league games each year is going to make it that much harder for the Brown and White to win their customary 16-18 games. Swapping out two low major conference teams in November and December with Davidson and a second trip to a VCU or UMass isn’t stellar for the final record; it does however help the RPI of the league.
We’ll also make some bold predictions as well. For now, here’s what we’re thinking about 2014-2015.
What are you’re thoughts about the SBU’s final record this season? Post some comments below, we’ll be putting up a poll as well later on.
*Note: We brought in Chris DiSano of Collegechalktalk.com, as well as Cox Sports New England whose as knowledgeable as they come concerning the A10. Chris has been covering the league for some time now and we felt it would be cool to get an outsiders take on the Bonnies chances this season. As you will see, he’s taking a more guarded approach on our boys this winter.
