Yea that sounds about right, except that you don't have to worry about defending points for the race, so no subtracting. So he will gain at least 90 points from the USO, that would put him at the high teens so yea it'd be possible if he were to do really really well in the indoor season.
I think everyone recognizes that he has the shots to do it and that he has for some time now. Consistency seems to have been his biggest problem so I think he has to back up this run with runs like it week in and week out, then we'll see
