I agree with most of this, I feel like in year three we need to see improvement with wins, not stats you can spin. I have lowered my expectations as I think almost everybody has. I do think it is reasonable to expect an 8 win season. I know everybody in the West is improving, we should be too. Group of 5 teams should not be favored to beat Nebraska at home. I would not be fine long term with 9 wins, don't know about expectations for a college football championship. Let's take care of the West, then the BIG and worry about the playoff later.
