We all know that this is a down year in the Big Ten. OSU has looked mortal and Michigan is adapting to the new system which equals growing pains. Now Iowas loses to Pittsburgh who lost to Bowling Green if my memory serves me correctly. Indiana was drubbed by Ball State and Northwestern looks bad again. Should be three very winnable Big Ten games for the Gophers this year. With no Penn State on our schedule this year, we can play the rest of the season without fear as we have a legit shot at every game. (including OSU) It's starting to be good to be a Gopher fan again.
