You may notice that I put the class of each of the Bison. Notice that their top 8 minutes guys are all sophomores or freshmen. This is a very solid nucleus that should be a pretty good mid-major in the next couple years.
In a nutshell, this is a good defensive team that struggles offensively. Assuming we are focused and not looking ahead to Illinois, we should be able to pull out what will probably be a close win. But it is easy to get caught up in the 11-1 record and I do have a fear that we are looking ahead a bit here.
