Can never have too much depth along the lines. More than any other position, except maybe QB, it is the hardest position to make that next level jump. The best teams have a solid three deep along the lines.
I'm not saying I want that, but I think it might be better. I agree, aim high, but realistically we MAY be served better by coming back next year after 12-1 season, bowl win, snubbed by the committee and with a major chip on the shoulder.
The SEC bias is over the top. There is only one way to start changing the narrative....beat them field.
Unfortunately, that may not even be enough as they lost their two marquee games last bowl season (MNC and Sugar Bowl)
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.
I don't think we beat Wisconsin scoring 28-31 points. It wouldn't have gotten it done against MSU. Now, can we score in the 40s against Wiscy, yes, but not with the sloppy play of the past couple weeks.
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.

Sorry, but I just don't know how the D played well when giving up over 200 to a RB when we knew that was ALL they had. Our run D is a huge concern, just as passing D was last year.
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.

You know its been a rough day when your punter is among your best performers.

Good game all around, sloppy with the ball at times, but liked the pace and the improved shooting performance.
You could definitely make the argument that his coaching was more responsible for our only national championship in the last 44 years than anyone else. That defense against Miami was a thing of beauty.
