Great article! I would challenge the next 4 are must wins. I’m more confident in Illinois’ ability to beat Wisconsin, Michigan and Iowa than I am in their ability to beat tOSU at home. This team is just motivated by being an “underdog” and I have to think part of that is our reliance on Ayo (who LOVES being doubted).
I’ll feel the same way in the tournament. I’m most scared by the potential 2 vs 15; 3 vs 14; 4 vs 12 games (depending on where we end up)
