They won 9 games
They had Michigan 17-0 down early with no running game; Notre Dame closed the game in the last 5 minutes; Ohio State was a one possession game going into the 4th quarter.
They lost a game after being up by 17 to Akron. They got dominated by Duke in which they had almost a 3rd of the roster in bad shape. And in between this they beat a bunch of above average B1G teams.
To recap they had no running game after they lost an absolute stud RB, and their best QB and CBís were basically never 100% and still won 9 games - thatís pretty impressive.
Iowa turned out to be pretty decent. They strangled MissSt to death in their bowl game.
