The difference these days is that our team is deep, seasoned and knows how to win. They were so off kilter the other evening in Lincoln but bore down late (Trent, DMW) and Omar stepped up. As for Kofi, his ankle seemed just fine v. Maryland two nights after Minnesota. He looked gassed against Nebraska.
We could very well lose, of course. However, I approach games these days with a "it may be a rock fight but we have the chops to prevail" attitude. Rather like 15-20 years ago. It's a pleasant feeling.
