Corn Flakes: Looking Ahead to Minnesota

I'm still suffering from a hangover from the Wisconsin game. I don't the kind you get from alcohol, I mean the kind you get when you realize that years from now you can tell your grandchildren you were at the game where the guy set the all-time rushing record. Against your team. In a bad way.

There's one way the Wisconsin loss gets worse and that's losing to Minnesota. Again. Were the Huskers to lose that game things will become unhinged. You might think we're already there. No. Not really. Lose to the Gophers and the "four losses a year" mantra will be out in full force and you have to wonder whether things will fold against Iowa.

It's not a pleasant thought.
