this is basically how bad do you wanna win vs the competiton you face.
if it stays like this nebraska will be favorite to win with only wisky/nwestern, meanwhile everyone outside bigten country will see our division has a cupcake while seeing the east as a beast with osu mu msu and psu even tho psu isnt what is used to be.
IMO we need to win out strong and leave no doubt not making to champ game, my biggest fear is the preception of the team if we dont make it on a regular basis. we lose psu as our cross divison rival and will pick up either mu or osu im guessing but still this is big12 north again and this means we need to take full advantage if it stays like this.
It sets up well for Nebraska. We finally get a scheduling break from the league now that we're not the new guy anymore.
But you have to remember that division games are not the only conference games you play. We'll still see Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, etc. in the rotation. We just won't see them every year.
And Wisconsin is no cupcake, even with a new coach.
but the general consensus is we lose the tough games by relatively large margins.This seems to be a fairly new thing at Nebraska. Well, the last 6-8 years maybe. I donlt recall many "massive" blow outs in the early 2000's, 1990's 1980's, etc. I'm talking 40-50 point loses.
