I have never once in my life thought, “God, I ESPECIALLY want to beat Purdue!” However, given what it would mean for our season, I’m thinkin’ it now. Let’s come out fired up for Homecoming and get to 4-2 (2-1). Wow, that’d be nice!
I do like the way our Home/Away shapes up. Getting the better of that group at home - Purdue and Minn I think improves chances of games we’ll be slight dogs for. They way they are playing now Nebraska on the road we can feel good about.
I don’t feel horrible about Iowa at home - similar to 3Qs of PSU I think we can give ourselves a chance to hang. I think going out east to Maryland won’t help us (they are ranked in 40s).
I could see bowl bid coming down to NW game. Tickets for that are as low as $1 now. I’m tempted to buy up chunks of those and give them away to anyone willing to wear orange.
