I think they dug too deep of a hole. That three point loss at Illinois stings alot. Winning out is very tough. Winning one to be bowl eligible after being 3-4 is something. Winning two of three would be better. Finishing 7-5 is were most of us thought things might end up. 8-4 was considered optimistic.I had Illinois and ISU as wins and purdue a loss. I had Wiscy and Minny as losses also. We'll see, that is why you play the games.Iowa wins division by winning out and Illinois losing twice (IL plays Purdue, at Michigan and at NW; they already beat Goldy), plain and simple. There is no other way for them to win it. The only team they could possibly tie for the division title and still go to the BTCG is Purdue, if both win out.
