We have an easier schedule and will be a better team

It just strikes me how few people actually, internally believe Tony Bennett is a great coach. Everybody says he is, but predictions like this one, and justifications for it like the ones on this thread, show that people do not expect great coaching results from him. Toolie's post about Izzo really hits the point. There is no factual basis for expecting MSU to be top 5 and UVA to be NINTH in the ACC. None. It's all reputation and expectation.

I simply do not believe you can think Tony Bennett is a great coach and expect him to coach 5 top 75 talents to a ninth place finish. It's dissonant.
