Reviewing Our Pre-Conference Predictions.

Or, as it's more commonly known: "How Off Were We?"

Back in December, when we were still slumming it over at the Buffet, a few of us -- i.e., those of us who aren't pansies -- went on record with our predictions for Marquette's conference record in the 2009-2010 Big East season.  In retrospect: a few more of us should have been pansies and kept our mouths shut.

EMoney -- or, as you know him now, Mr. McCarter -- predicted every BEast game (with mixed results) and came up with a 10-8 record.

SBTG -- now the infamous Soft Pretzel with Cheese -- agreed with the 10-8 prediction.  Good for you, you sickening optimists.

Master Race, er, Reid -- the freshly-minted Mr. Kensington -- straddled the fence and went with 9-9.  Remember, kids: the only prediction worse than no prediction is calling for .500. 

D3 (whose full name I'm prohibited from revealing on this site) -- now the irreverent Warrior Brad -- called an 8-10 season, but, to cover himself if the season played out better than expected, said he was "tempted to go higher."  Remember, kids: the only prediction worse than no prediction is making a prediction and then immediately waffling on it.

Last and least, Rubie Q penciled Marquette in for a 6-12 conference record.  In my defense: I'm a relentless pessimist.  Also: Admiral Ackbar, S.J. tells me that he, too, thought 6-12 was the most likely outcome.  In our defense: THIS.

Anybody else brave enough to list your pre-conference prediction?  Be forewarned: If you say 11-7 and don't have visual evidence to back it up, that's a paddlin'.
