What's the record you project for the Bears this season based on what you've seen in practice?
6 and 6 seems more than reasonable, with a high of 8-4 and a low of 5-7. The talent is there, but the schedule is brutal, with ranked opponents like Ohio State, Oregon and Stanford all waiting. Rough. Still, the Bears should be more entertaining than they were all of last season - a good energy lives in the program again, and there is good reason for excitement in the near future.
