Watching football this weekend, Indiana vs MSU and Minnie vs Purdue... I'm afraid we're fighting for 2nd to last or 3rd to last place in the B1G again this year. Might not be the case, but look for Minnie to throw over the freakin middle all day just behind our LB's in the seams. I think Minnie picks our defense apart and puts up numbers. Look for us to run strong but shoot ourselves in the foot. If this does happen the question is then whether or not we're better than Maryland or an injured Purdue. I think everyone else beats up on us in the second, third and fourth quarters. Our offense gets too cute, and our defense plods along with the same easy to read zone and man. I'm not asking for division or conference championships, but could we crawl out of the basement any time soon? Next week is a must win game (not like every game isn't). If they stumble look for torches and pitchforks among the entirety of the fanbase, such as it is. Outlook is gloomy with a 66% chance of doom. Minnie 38 ILL 24 in a game that isn't as close as the score.
