I agree, until it changes, it hasnt changed.I don't think 8 or 9 wins is a realistic expectation. OU, Mich, and OSU are most certainly losses. It is realistic to expect no more than one loss in all the other games? I see 4 games (NW, Minn, Wisc, and IA) that are 50/50 at best and if the recent trend continues, at least one loss among teams we're exected to beat.
7 wins, tops.
But the right players are here, the right mindset is here, theres more talent here now.
Its going to take all that and learning how to win to break out of where theyve been.
