We finish ahead of wisconsin in the Big Ten West.
This pretty much sums it up for me. Just don't take a huge step backwards. Stay ranked, be competitive in every game, beat 1 or more of Mich/Wisc/Iowa, and don't stub a toe against any lesser teams.We are successful if we show last year was no fluke and that we belong in the conversation of being a top six programs in the B1G TEN.
Losing a one score game with the ball and a chance to win at the end can't be worse than our performance against Wisconsin.It's interesting how many people defined success similarly to way I would for this year. Success to me this year is adding at least two trophies to the case. That means beating 2 out of Michigan, Iowa, and Wisconsin. I am really disgusted by this programs inexcusable record against Iowa (I believe it's now 7-21 in the last 28 years) and don't even want to think about losing that game again. The Gophers played their worst game of the conference season by far in Iowa City to lose their undefeated record last year. They can't make up for that loss, but they can at least start to turn that series around in 2020. Even if they end up 5-3 in conference play, I think winning 2 of these 3 trophy games will be enough to keep momentum going for this program and create plenty of interest for 2021 when the season starts out with Ohio State at TCF.
Wonder if he meant "worst half"? The first half in Iowa was pretty bad.Losing a one score game with the ball and a chance to win at the end can't be worse than our performance against Wisconsin.
