I noticed yesterday that we have played/will play four straight games against opponents coming off a bye week. Northwestern, Iowa, Penn State, and Purdue all face us with an extra week to prepare. We can already expect to get each teams best shot, but giving those teams an extra week to prepare gives them a chance to add some wrinkles to their game plan that our staff hasn't seen before. The 2nd half adjustments seem to be working on the defensive side as well as the offensive side as we've outscored our opponents 51-10 in the 2nd half of the NW and Iowa games. So while we may find ourselves in competitive games (Gasp!) versus quality opponents determined to beat us, take a deep breath and step back from the ledge. Stop calling for coaches jobs. It's annoying.
