OK, I've been on the RR hate bandwagon since the Penn State loss. However, I've taken a breath and cooled off a bit.
I think we may be in good shape at Michigan. Since the State game it's been three bad bad weeks. But we all no how this sport is, it's up and down, sentiments change quickly. We're favored in the next two games. We'll be dogs in the following two. If the season plays out in that manner, plus a bowl game, we will either be 8-5 or 7-6. Our Big Ten record will be 3-5. I think this would be enough, considering the potential we have, to stay the course.
What would make this decision really easy would be an upset of Wisco or OSU and/or a bowl win. I think people underestimate how possible these things are. Yes our defense is horrible, but all it would take would be a couple opportune fumbles or interceptions and we could be in any one of those games.
I don't know. I'm going back and forth. But after cooling off I'm going into this Illinois game cautiously optimistic.
