For ESPN, the bar is set high for the UK football team

Football season is right around the corner, and higher than usual expectations are being placed on the Cats.

ESPN set the over/under mark for the Cat’s win total during 2014 season at 5.5. That means if you take the over, you believe they will win six or more games. If you think they’ll go under, the will win five or less games.

When examining the team’s schedule, there are some very winnable game during the first half of the season, but things get tougher down the stretch. Going under 5.5 wins would be acceptable, as long as there is an improvement to last year’s 2-10 record. And as for the over, that would make the Cats bowl eligible, which would certainly be a sight for sore eyes in BBN.

The KSTV crew broke it down and made over/under picks while guest-hosting The Leach Report.
