Which loss hurts the most?

Recommended Posts

Kansas has the biggest wow factor for the committee.

 

Penn State would have given NU an easier track to 11 or 12 wins. But NU can still do that. Win all or most home games and take care of the bottom half of the conference on the road and penn state will not hurt later on. But it hurts the mojo today.

Great exercise. To each their own but I probably won't have enough time to read this thread. I have some mousetraps to check around the house. What makes that task similar to reading this thread is that after checking a couple of traps I can't even feel the cheese let alone taste it.

PSU. A Kansas win would have been a fine upset and a nice feather, and certainly a difference-maker if we're on the fence with the committee. PSU, however, was the game by which we get on the fence in the first place. 

 

This last loss was our most painful and most damaging.

To highjack this thread in a slightly different direction, we now have 12 games left. I figure we can still have three losses in the regular season and remain a viable bubble team. If we get that fourth loss , it will become the one that hurts the most. On a positive note, we can still have a 15-3 league mark. I think that is more possible than a 3-15 record, n'est pas?
