    Guess this just further supports how strongly they finished the season. It's an awful long time until next season starts....

    Also, though this isn't part of the comparison, one has to also look at the manner with which we beat three of the four top 40 teams. WI, Purdue and GT were never close....

    Nice breakdown. I think your numbers are pre-bowl maybe, as the current numbers are slightly different.

    166 - New Mexico State
    21 - Fresno State
    85 - Miami OH
    57 - Maryland
    10 - Iowa
    3 - Ohio State
    54 - Nebraska
    66 - Indiana
    109 - Illinois
    47 - Purdue
    32 - Northwestern
    25 - Wisconsin
    48 - Georgia Tech

    42 - Minnesota

    The Illinois loss still stings. The Nebraska and Maryland ones aren't quite as bad as made out to be. Both finished in the 50's.

    I pulled it about a week ago.
    I'll re-update my numbers after the Bowl games are all done.

    I think the biggest point is how different the level of competition they beat was compared to last year. Even though going into the WI game the record was still at 5 wins, the team was out-performing last year.
