Actually, most of those games, we WERE the favorite. We won 8 Big Ten titles during Cooper's 12 seasons. We were the better team 1988-92, 97, 99-2000.
Don't let the 93, 95 and 96 games fool you. We were the better overall program during those 12 years. You take those 3 games, and you still have a losing record against us.
