We've played like shit and I don't need graphs, charts or anything else to tell me otherwise. Our only "quality" wins was vs. ND who has no "quality" wins of their own, except perhaps against Sparty which was accomplished via 4 Pass Interference calls, three of which were false. At this point, I would not care if M were rated right alongside Akron, UCONN and PSU. That has been half our season and we looked pretty shitty coming out of those with two wins and an unforgiveable loss. This, PSU, is a team that gave up near a half-hundred to IN the week before we played them. If this team thinks it's good enough to show up and win then we've got two problems. No. 1 would be, of course, the team. No. 2 would be the coaching that affects such an attitude. This team has talent and it's not using it. If we play up to our abilities we're top 15. We do have some problems that I hope the remainder of the season will be corrected. If so, as PF says above, we'll have nothing to worry about. We know where we are as a team and it matters not to me if we're top 25 or top 50. What matters to me is we should be top 15 and we're not.
