Heh my guess was 27 wins. A tiny bit off.
I predicted 38 wins, so if the Pacers could win this game I'll have hit my guesstamation.
We fell short of my 51-31 prediction...but, we did play exactly 82 games, so I nailed that.
BLUE COLLAR GOLD SWAGGER
37w and 45L is the final result
Fun to read these old posts. Check out post #94. Man, the bench bailed us out a few times in a big way!
yeah p4e nailed that lol
Hibbert didn't contribute as much as I expected.
The Animal Crackers made a bigger positive difference than I expected.
O'B hurt the team even more than I expected but Vogel mostly made up for that due to changing the style of play coupled with the honeymoon period early.
And, most importantly, despite only 37 wins, the Pacers made the Playoffs and I am happy to have been wrong about that!
I had 37 in Peck's thread. But I had us missing the playoffs and Cousins winning the ROY. So...
Was off by 1... surprised 37 made the playoffs though.
This is interesting to look at now as well.
Fpr the record Vogel went 20-18 and that is a 43 win pace. I would mention strength of schedule but I guess we aren't allowed. j/k
This thread was started two weeks after Vogel took over

To many Vogel is a ten win difference coach than JOB. I would venture to say 3-5. One said 25 to start the year. And if Vogel started the year they said 45. 20 games? In a players league?
I basically called 36 after the skid if Vogel started at season's start. So I think 42 is expected next year if we have the same roster and coach.
Wrong on Murphy (extremely wrong). Wrong on Granger. Kinda wrong about DC, he struggled longer than I thought he would. Kinda right on Obie I guess, although any moron could have called that one. The Hansbrough thing was pretty good.
And P4Ever nailed it.
JOB was on pace for 32 wins, P4Ever said 30...unless he was fired and then maybe 37.
I said 33 but then I had no hope of JOB being fired this season.
Brad - I think you were most wrong on the Granger part to be honest, the rest wasn't too shabby. Granger's issues with driving for the score consistantly and his overall poor shooting in large stretches probably cost them a few games. I don't think he ended up being the +3 you thought.
Roy was a +3 for a few months, fell apart under JOB to a -2, then maybe half recovered back to a sum benefit of 0 extra wins. Disappointing last few months from him, I was really hoping to see that development click into something.
I do hope he returns to the training this year because I think that gave him a boost to start the year last time.
