If, and it's a big if, if we can replace Martin, Van Bergen, and Molk, then the sky is the limit. Our offense is going to be literally unstoppable. We'll have Denard as a senior and if he actually has figured "it" out then he could be the one going to New York this time next year. We'll have Touissant, Roundtree, Gallon, Stonum, Smith, etc. Our DBs will be great next year, along with our LB corps, if Will Campbell steps up or Ondre Pipkins can come in immediately, we're set.
And our schedule is easier than it looks. Alabama loses a lot of starters, I think something like 10 or so. MSU loses everyone of importance, ND loses a lot of starters as well. Nebraska loses Crick and maybe David, and well look at what we did this year. OSU will be installing a new offense. Illinois will have a first year head coach. Purdue is Purdue. UMass is FCS. Air Force will be like Western Michigan this year. Minnesota is ....hahah. Iowa could be tough but at least that's at home. Northwestern will go back to being Northwestern next year.
We could easily make the MNC. Well as easily as winning 13 games can be done. It's definitely in the realm of possibility. The future looks bright, it's a new era.
