You cannot play the what if game. The opportunities presented themselves and our players and staff seized them. They won those games.
Next year our offense is going to take a big leap forward. The major question is if we can generate a pass rush. If we do, we will win at least 6. If we don't, we could win as small as 3.
Very trey on what-if. It is the past now.
However, on what-if others have a upgraded pass rush. Then how well will our big-leap-forward perform, even if our O is upgraded.
3 wins IF we beat the first 3.
Given that our B10 West opponents have far better recruiting classes, I just do not see us performing well for years to come. Unless we start recruiting at a very high level, irrespective of our W-L and things like facilities, etc.
