Yes the past 2 weeks have been hard but think about it this way. Our 2 opponents are a combined record 12-1 Both rated in the top 15 in the country. Turnovers and mistakes are game killers and have cost us dearly in the past 2 weeks. The coaches coach and the players play...the coaches are not responsible for fumbles, interceptions, and brain farts. MSU and Iowa both played mistake/turnover free football and that is a huge reason why they won the games. This bye week couldnt come at a better time. Work on our mistakes and to get guys healthy.
Illinois and Purdue are must win games in my mind. Penn St is definetly a winnable game. Win those 3 and we are 8-4...At the begining of the season who wouldnt have taking that? I would in a heart beat. Senior Henne, Hart, and Long went 8-4. We got a bunch of young guys out there playing there asses off. They will learn from there mistakes...We can beat anyone but we just have to play turnover and mistake free.
Please dont start with the QB controversey BS...Denard is our man and will step up.
