If everyone can just calm down a bit and take these next comments and think deeply about them. We are 5-5 right now with 3 of those losses by a combined 10 points. MSU by 6 in OT, Iowa by 2 on the road, and Purdue by 2 at home. Of course we got smoked by a really good Penn State team by 25 and a healthy Juice Williams by 25. Everyone says our defense is so bad...look at the games we have been in at the end with a chance at winning. RR is still keeping games close with this team being really young and our horrible safety/corner play. We have the ability to keep a game close because our offense scores points pretty consistently and our defense occasionally makes a good stand late in the game when we need them much like against ND. We improved in the Purdue game with our bad TO margin and if we protect the football and just play our game instead of worrying about what the other team is gonna do I like our chances against Wisconsin and OSU. BTW I'll be in section 24 row 5 on Nov 21 contributing to the loudest and biggest crowd that has ever been at a college game. GO BLUE!!
