that those will be the final standings. i see illinois winning out, northwestern losing their next 3, purdue dropping their next 3, and Indiana/minnesota remaining dredge. 

Texas Bowl here we come

......that we will beat Purdue and lose to Wisky and tOSU and end up at 7-5. I can then see us being tied for 7th. Even if we by some chance beat both Purdue and Wisky, but lose to tOSU, we end up at 4-4 in the league and Texas Bowl. Now that I've looked at it, we pretty much have to win out to have a even a shot at the Gator bowl. Probably not gonna happen.

This is like finally making the NCAA tourney 2 years ago.  That's how I feel today.  Right now, I don't care what bowl.  We're going bowling!  Now next year, well the expectations are for a nice warm climate!!  Dang this is a good day!

missing Minny the past 2 years.  Can you imagine the amount of heat that would have been taken off this team with a bowl last year and having 7 wins right now instead of 6?

Is that I'm in France for the year and my family has already made plans to spend the holidays here. *Sigh*

Also, did anyone catch that Mark Schlabach projected us into a New Year's Day bowl (well, kind of) last week, with Andrea Adelson giving that spot to Illinois? Maybe we'll have consensus from them on that to dream about for the next two weeks.

Nice thing about college football is that any team can beat any other team on any given Satty. M has a shot to both win or lose the rest of their games. Can't wait to see this offense paired with a better defense. We'll be like Oregon but with better uniforms.

What does strike me is that UM will play/has played everyone above them in the rankings and will miss two of the 4 teams below them (NW and Minny).  Those are probably 2 more potential wins.
