Well, we're now halfway through the season, sitting pretty at 6-0. I think it's safe to say that the defense has outperformed even the most wildly optimistic expectations,while the offense is either mind-blowingly beautiful or mind-blowingly frustrating.
Next week is the first true test on the road (Sorry, NW. 45% Michigan fans makes it a neutral game), against an MSU team with the O-line equivalent of our secondary from last year (That's not a good thing for MSU, in case your memories of last year's secondary are being repressed). Purdue is well, Purdue and Iowa isn't looking that strong. Illinois is either great or decent, depending how you look at them and Nebraska is.....confusing, to say the least. To finish the season we get OSU at home, who's learning the painful lesson that karma is, in fact, a bitch.
So, fellow MGoBloggers, what are your revised season predictions? And what'd you predict at the beginning of the season?
I predicted 10-2 at the beginning of the season, and I'm going to change it to 11-1. Do I think the team is truly an elite team this year? Not really. Do I think the schedule will make the team look like an elite team? Yes.
