    This ball club is very likely to win out and end up 10-3. The worst thing that could have happened would have been to win that game yesterday and then have to play Ohio State in Indy. This is like a top 15 level team, but I don't want to play those top 5 caliber teams. So we'll probably win out and then have a reasonable draw in the bowl game, which we will win. Had we made the title game, we would have gotten a higher bowl draw and at the end of the day, 10-3 with a 4 game winning streak looks a helluva lot better than 10-4 with a 2 game losing streak to end the season.

    We'll definitely beat Nebraska, but Minny & Illinois could go either way.

    Sarcasm aside, running the table would probably make everyone feel better about the season.

    Hopefully, you get a Minnesota team with their emotional energy tank on empty.

    I'm pretty confident we will beat minny next week by 30. Nebraska is all kinds of awful, Illinois will be interesting.

    Who knew that beating Minny and Illinois would provide healing...but this year it would

    I'm not confident in any game. Including nebby.

    And that is ridiculous.

    And it's not a lack of talent(outside of maybe oline and lb due to lack of depth, injuries, and recruiting 2-3 years ago resulting in a gap).

    We should go 3-0. No idea anymore.

    Oh come on!!! We would all like the hawks to be playing at a very high level with a really good Off line and be 9-0. then get to 12-0 then play in the Big CG damn what might happen.

    No such thing as a good loss just like there is no bad win.

    I'm still sticking with 8-4. Have been there since the end of spring ball, although the reasons have shifted around a bit as things develop.
