Okay, so the year hasn't turned out as we'd hoped.
For me, it is less a matter of the overall record than the way we got to that overall record. On the other hand, it could be a lot worse. Nobody can say this team isn't playing hard. We haven't reverted back to 2006.
Regardless, this has been a strange year. There is one game left in the season. It is against Minnesota and Iowa should win the game handily. Nevertheless, with 11 games down, I'm still not entirely sure what this team is made of.
I'm not going to bother going into the matchups with Minnesota, because on paper, this one is no contest.
However, I am going to point out five questions that we're left with as we close the books on the 2010 season. I am also going to point out five things (or more specifically, players or groups of players) to be particularly excited about as we look ahead.
