Expectations - we all got 'em...

I told you to soak up spring ball because once it was over, the time would drag. Well, it's dragging. We're only in May and I'm already dying for some football.

But I guess talking about football might help get through these next few days - especially when it comes to pumping up expectations.

We expect good things, right? How good, though? CFN predicts Utah to finish 10-2 and #13th nationally. A bit too positive, don't you think? Yeah, I really do think. But I'll take it! I like preseason buzz. It helps build excitement for the upcoming season (not that we really need a boost there). It might prove wrong, but in May, does it really matter?

So, knowing what you know - Jordan Wynn's health, Travis Wilson's leap during spring, Brian Johnson calling the offense, the overall schedule - how do you see this season going? Will Utah contend for the Pac-12 South or is it pretty much USC's for the taking? Can Utah get back to 10 wins or even make a run for a BCS bowl?

I don't think anyone knows. The reality is, the best case scenario is pretty sweet, but who knows if that's even attainable. The realistic outlook probably puts Utah 2nd or 3rd in the South and playing in either the Alamo or Holiday Bowl. Not bad, right? I'd take it.

Instead of asking you to spill your guts on everything from wins to points per game, let's start with just one question - what bowl game will Utah make?

Then we'll visit other expectations throughout the summer. Might help spark a conversation in what has proven to be a very dead period.
