brady hoke came in with his coaching staff and won 10 games with a team that had no real talent other than denard who is a glorified running back. they got a lot out of nothing.
other than playing wisconsin your schedule isnt any tougher. miami is crap, purdue is crap, we beat nebraska....badly, and you got to play indiana. not exactly the gauntlet there buddy.
same can be said about state.
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
