Given today's bed crap, last year's regular season is starting to look more likely. The horrendous defense of last year has become this year's average defense. However, the offense of last year has become inept & confused and failed to score as many points against Iowa as UL-Monroe or Minnesota had earlier. At the end of the year, 7-5 would look like same old, same old 2nd half collapse.
"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."
