    Default With Iowa's loss

    Am I wrong in thinking this way?

    OSU defeats Wisconsin

    Wisconsin beats Iowa or at least someone else does.

    We beat Rutgers and Maryland.

    We then only need to win one game against PSU, Iowa, and NW

    If we win that one game............we are playing Wisconsin at home for the West title.

    You got it.

    Ohio State-Wisconsin is the big one we need to fall our way. Helps that it’s in Columbus.

    It’s setting up pretty nicely if the guys can take care of business.

    The bigger question is the Rose Bowl selectee. Is it written in stone (this year) if the conference winner goes to the CFP the runner up goes to the Rose Bowl? I’d like to think we can beat OSU but they look really, really tough. Same with Sconni...but maybe MSU isn’t as good as advertised. A lot can change week to week.

    We beat Wisconsin like a drum — in Madison — less than 10 months ago. They aren't unbeatable. And we are pretty damn good.

    WI is looking really good, but we're not sure these are great teams either that they are beating.

    Their defense looks good, but we're balanced unlike most teams they are playing and possibly the most physical now that our line is marching.

    MSU isn't impressing many yet this year, and Michigan struggled at Illinois today. Mich got the win, but isn't the epic win for Wisconsin that we maybe all believed a couple weeks ago.

    The Gophers can only control what they do. they can't control what any other team does.

    The Gophers play Rutgers next week. that is all they should be thinking about.

    It's the old "tempting fate" thing. logically, it shouldn't matter. but emotionally, when fans start plotting out scenarios where "if A, B and C happens, we win the title!" - that is when I get really nervous, because some off-kilter part of my brain thinks that the Football Gods will be offended and smite the Gophers down to punish the fans for their temerity.

    Hey, I also try to avoid stepping on cracks in the sidewalk.

    Minnesota will be heavy favorites against NW and heavy dogs against PSU/Iowa which is why getting to this 8-0 start is so important.

    I don't believe we will be heavy dogs to Iowa or PSU.

    They won't be heavy dogs to Iowa if they take care of business against PSU...

    We may not be dogs to either.

    Wisconsin is playing far better this year and their defense is playing off the charts.....that said....I don't think it is crazy to think we will have a shot at beating them at home.

    Ohio State is going to thump Wisconsin.

    Every week is a new season. It doesn’t matter what happened last year. Anything can happen in college football, including running the table, defeating WI at TCF, and even winning the Big Ten outright. I don’t think we need to argue every day about whether it’s ok to have a rational discussion about the odds of that coming to pass.
