I agree with the coaches, the players should focus on the very next game only. One game at a time. But we are fans, and it's our nature to look ahead (hey, we are looking at 2013 and 2014 already).
So with that said, I wonder 1) what is the current expectation for our next 5 games (@MSU, Mich, @NW, IU, @O$U)?
2) Will you be happier if we are 1-4 (with the win over IU), or 2-3 (with the win over Mich and NW)?
I just can't see us winning @MSU (and have them drop 3 games in a row) or @OSU. I will be ecstatic if we can go 3-2, but if I were to bet I'll put the most money in 2-3. (My probability is 0.5% 5-0, 0.5% 4-1, 10% 3-2, 50% 2-3 and 39% 1-4)
And for me, I always go for wins, so I'll be happier to be 2-3.
