After the release of the 2012-13 men's college basketball schedules and the Iowa football team's tedious and laborious win over the Northern Illinois Huskies on Saturday, what better time to think ahead to college basketball season? 

In 2011-2012, the Iowa Hawkeyes basketball team started to turn a few heads after putting together their first winning season in five years, with an 18-17 overall record (including their B1G Tournament win and loss as well as the NIT win and loss).

Students are excited again, season tickets are being sold at record pace and Iowa City is beginning to look like a top spot for basketball recruits—admittedly, a weird sentence to write.

Oh what a gasket-blowing, up-tempo offensive coach can do for a program.

Now, Coach Fran McCaffery will enter his third year with the highest expectations he's ever endured in his short tenure at the helms of the Hawkeyes. With an incoming recruiting class that ranks among the top in the B1G as well as a relatively young but veteran returning lineup, the Hawkeyes are slated to take yet another step in McCaffery's rebuilding plan.

How high can the Hawkeyes go?

Let's take a look at seven bold predictions for the Hawkeyes' 2012-2013 season.
