Notre Dame is at the Big House. Iowa has it's own set of problems and no real proven QB. NW? Even with DP back and at full strength they do not pose a threat. Minny? Illini? Sparty is really the only question mark in the first 10 games. We have a very viable chance at being 10-0 going into the Nebraska game. In addition, Neb and tOSU are both at home.
Maybe this is far too optimistic. Maybe not. Consider that we find our running game and have a middling defense. Consider Denard as being equal to last year or better. Also consider that we have potentially one of the best receiving corps in the country. Troy is full steam. JT. Carvin. By the NW game this is going to be a well-oiled machine.
Is this optimistic or realistic?
