I know it is would have, could have, should have, but due to my geographical coverage, I had the Wisky-IA game instead of UM and am just shaking my head. After watching those two roll around on each other for 60 minutes, I still cannot believe I was seeing the probable Big 10 champion and BCS rep look so impressive. I have never apologized for the Big 10, but man this would have been a good year to make any sort of run due to the strength of the conference. I think we will look back at MSU and IA as just terrible loses (would never have said that at the beginning of the year). If we could have controlled one of three variables of 1) turnovers, 2) Molk line disruption or 3) safety play, we should have won both games. Having all three blow up at once cost us.
It is probably sour grapes, but I just think if we could stop beating ourselves, we could beat anyone in this conference this year on any given Saturday. We just can't seem to pull it all together all at once. This could have been a great time to sneak in a conference run even with our inexperience.
