That game was just a special teams fluke-o-rama.  That team ain't ever showing up again.

I dont see a sure win left, usually if you look at a game and say it could be a loss that is not good.  As an optimist 2 more wins, as a realist 1 or maybe zero.

9-3 is my answer until it's not possible anymore this season.

That was never possible in a real sense for this team.

What would the feeling be if we went 5-7, BUT one of the remaining wins was against Wisky or Iowa?  Would beating one of them lessen the lack of a bowl game?  Personally, I want the bowl, the exposure, the extra practices.  If the process works, we will be beating them in the future.

 

I'm guessing 6-6.  Wins against either Indiana, Maryland or Purdue then the obvious losses to Wisky and Iowa...If we lose to Indiana. I think bowl eligibility looks very hard (and not just less chances to win 2).  

 

I always look at how FCS (and to a degree G5 schools) play "up to their competition" like it's their Super Bowl or NC game.....As much as it kills me to say it, I really wish NU could get this mentality the next 5 games.  Play each one like it's the NC game.  Leave nothing on the field.  Drain the tank each game.  Plays, players, intensity, trickery etc...Leave no stone unturned.  David vs Goliath....

6-6 minimum.  We have lost to two Undefeated teams and in overtime on the road.  I honestly feel 7-5 is realistic and 8-4 is very possible.

So special teams caused us to have 9 yards per pass and 7 yards per rush while allowing 5.6 per pass and 2.7 per rush. All of those but our passing looking equal or better than #12 Utah did just the week before. Thats interesting

I'm hoping for 7-5 but wxpect 6-6.  5-7 or 4-8 are unacceptable IMO.

Help me, I need a self-check on something I have struggled with for a long time.  In the movie "Troy", Brad Pitt's character Achilles kills Eric Bana's character Hector after a decent fight scene.  In real life do you think Brad Pitt could kick Eric Bana's a$$?  What if it was a cage match?

No, Daniel Day Lewis is not part of the question...

See this is where the mind goes in a season like this.

Bana would seem like the obvious choice but Pitt seems like he is a little shifty and probably fights dirty.

I think it's still real. We have 4 wins, 3 losses and 5 games left. So if we win all 5, correct my math if I'm wrong, but that's 9 wins. And if we only win 4 of them, that's 8, 3 wins would be 7, 2 wins would be 6, 1 win would be 5, 0 wins would be 4 wins. So all the above is a "real" result that can be obtained.
