I do think this team is significantly better than last season's team -- BUT -- our three conference series wins were against Penn State, Michigan State, and Purdue -- those are three of the bottom four teams in the Big Ten standings. The only conference team we've played that currently has a winning record (before this weekend) was Minnesota -- who we lost to. We eventually need to win a series against one of the better Big Ten teams (and we won't play Indiana in the regular season).Any talk about a regional is very premature right now.
Loss drops us to 2nd in the BIG 10, behind INdiana
