    Back to 50-50 in the 50-50s. On or above pace in all four categories.

    After tonight's huge win at wisconsin, the Gophers are 2-2 in Hodger's "50-50s -- no worse than 4-4 (1-2)" category.

    Go Gophers!!

    I think we need an extra one from this bucket, to make up for the "Big Boy" bucket. I have a hard time seeing us beating Michigan or winning @ MSU. Maybe Michigan at home, but man they are good.

    We could also get Indiana to wrap up that bucket.

    Ah. You're right. I was thinking 3 out of that group.

    I think with how the Big Ten is shaking out, we don't even have to worry about "buckets" at this stage. ANY combination of nine more wins puts us at 11-9 in the Big Ten and 21-10 overall and that will 100% make it a stress free Selection Sunday no matter what buckets the wins come from. Eight more wins at 10-10 almost certainly is enough to get us in at this stage, too.

    This was a big win. Need to clean up at home now and steal a couple more road wins for some cushion pending any slip ups.

    6-1 in our next 7 is a very realistic possibility. Feel like 5-2 is a must.

    Every game will be tough. Even Rutgers was a lot better last year I thought, but if we can’t beat Illinois it means we aren’t very good either

    We should be favored (and win) in 6 of the next 7 games. We really need to pile up wins before a tough stretch late in the season.

    I totally agree! But it still ain't gonna be easy to accomplish. We need the next one on Tuesday...one at a time.

    Yes, thanks for project/post SelectionSunday!

    Default Utah won @ Arizona State last night

    Never hurts to get even the tiniest bit of help.

    What a mess the Pac 12 is.
