2007 Can't State Prediction - 8-4 Overall, 6-2 MAC, 5-1 MAC East
Jury is still totally out on the 2007 season on this end. Not sure what to make of things. Will take it one week at a time and see how things go. I do EXPECT a total annihilation of Can't after what happened last year at Can't. Will be totally pissed if we come out with anything less than our best effort and result up to that point in the season. Can't needs to be put back in their place. The basketball team took care of business and the time is approaching for the football team to do the same. Go Zips!
