It will make the pain more bearable, but this loss can be filed under the category 'inexcusable'. So, I'm not sure if anything like this can go away, but it would be eased. A win over MSU Sunday will make me take 3/4 of my body off the ledge (figure of speech, of course).
At the end of the day, though, if I was given these 4 games and had to lose one, I'd rather lose to PSU or Purdue than vs Indiana or MSU. So, let's fuckin' do this.
