The offense needs to be more consistent, but I think our improved run game this season has us on a very good path. On a positive note, at least we aren't Iowa State. Many people picked them to win the North, and they are getting hammered by everyone.
While I don't want to make alot of excuses for this team, our CB position is horrible right now. You know you are in bad shape when even the WR that you converted to CB goes down for the year.
