Good point, and I have to say I still think our team is a year away. Our defense is just not NC caliber. Hope they prove me wrong, but I think it would be very bad for our reputation to show up in the final four a year early and get stomped, than to go to a "lesser" bowl and perhaps pick up a big win that launches a NC run next year, when I think we'll be better suited to win it all. Again, hope they prove me wrong, but this could end up like the year we played LSU when we weren't really that great...yet. But we are still living down that loss despite beating Oregon and Arkansas in the following years.

Hate to sound like a negative ninny but I tend to agree that facing Wisconsin will be the biggest threat to our championship aspirations (B1G and National). I think if Minnesota should miraculously defeat Wisconsin they would climb to the top 15 and we'd have a much better chance of destroying them in the championship. This will look much better than squeaking by Wisconsin because they could drop 40 on our run D. Their oline is legit (as always) and Gordon is the best RB in the nation. In order to beat Wisconsin we will have to score in the 40s against a good defense. I don't think that is true against Minnesota.

Count me as one who thinks we are in good shape for the playoff as long as we keep winning. I think our brand,draw, and overall improvement are too much to ignore. That said, I just don't see how we win out. With the weakness we've shown against the run and the fact that Wisconsin will play the best defense we've seen this year I'm afraid I see another loss in the B1G championship coming. Would love to hear reasonable explanations for why I am wrong though.

Good game all around, sloppy with the ball at times, but liked the pace and the improved shooting performance.
