Illness: W. Bielema will make them into a formidable opponent, but not in his first game. We break the curse against 1st-year coaches.

Fordham: W
Buffalo: W
OU: L

MSU: L. OU beats us twice. Would be great to get revenge against Mel Tucker, but not after a late emotional letdown against the Sooners. I believe this game may be as big as any in determining how the rest of our season goes, based on how we react after the OU meat grinder.

NW: W. They miss Hankwitz too much.

Michigan: L. I actually think we have a good shot to win, but Harbaugh pulls out a nail biter in Lincoln.

Minnie: W. We take back the broken chair and show them what to do with that oar.

Purdue: W. If this were a typical Brohm team, it could be a trap game. But not this year. Third DC in 3 years and they don't have it figured out yet.

OhSU: L. Duh.

Wiscy: W. Barry gets a parting gift from his alma mater.

Iowa: W. No more losing on a last-second FG. This is the year we get 'r' done.

Regular season 8-4.

And that looks like undefeated in the West...which is nice.

I can get behind 8-4 real easily. I just have no idea where all the wins and loses come.

I think we for sure beat Illinois, Fordham, and Buffalo to start the season. If I am picking losses I have to go with OSU and OU. After that I really don't know. Nebraska shouldn't lose to Purdue, Northwestern or MSU, but that doesn't mean they won't. The remaining four I consider toss up games.

A couple of things. I am not so sure that Bielama has Illinois humming along in a few years as a formidable opponent. I think Alvarez had a lot more to do with his success at Wisconsin than he gets credit for. We will see though.

I think just like in 2019 NW has a rough year this year. I think 6-6 is probably a best case scenario. Losing Hankwitz is huge plus all the defenders.

Michigan IMO is either going to not be very good something like 6-6 or they are going to be really good 11-1, 10-2.

As far as Nebraska goes I think the running game will be good. I think the defense will be solid and good. I am not ready to say great but they should be top 40 or so. Now the ifs. If we keep TO at or around 1 a game, if we keep procedural penalties to 1 or less a game and if the passing game looks as good as I think it can look this could be a pretty good team.

That's been my feeling as well. Will be interesting to watch. I do think it was Barry calling the shots, and Bulimia didn't show much at Arkansas. He looks like a big doofus, but I have to believe he's picked up some things along the way. If he can get the top recruits out of Illinois, he could make them respectable.

He does have a decent staff, and has acquired some decent talent through the portal.
If he fails to protect native players, like most illini coaches have, its a huge uphill battle.

I've been stumping 8-4 regular season with another win in the bowl game since the end of 2020, so when it happens no one should be surprised. Add 3 first team all B1G and SF coach of the year in the West (if there is such a thing). And when its over I'm going to come back here and invite some of you to get on the bandwagon....even if you have been a pain in the butt all year.
Let’s hope your hunch is right pilk. It’s time.
