Yes, it sucks. It wasn't supposed to go down like this, what with the abundance of talent and kind schedule.
But, really, this was the game we had circled on the calendar as the most likely to derail Glendale hopes. In Big Ten play, especially on the road, you have to be ready to play as a team for 60 minutes. Not 30, or even 40. And once again, we're reminded of just how tough it is to go unbeaten.
I feel for the seniors -- especially Dane for sacrificing so much of his body tonight -- because they likely won't have an opportunity to play for a national championship, but this is still a quality team that will do some damage. And there's still a lot of football to be played, so who knows where things will end up.
At any rate, get your vent-on, but remember to keep things constructive and civil.
