We aren't a tough team at this point in the season, we haven't beaten anyone who has punched us in the mouth, we have had 4 games decided by less than 10 points and lost them all. The 4 highest rpi teams we have played away from home we have lost. We are 7-5 on the road with most of those games coming against the 8th rated conference in the SEC, and now in league we are what, 4-3 away without a quality road win or neutral win all year? MTSU is our best win away from Gainesville I think.
What is Michigan's excuse for losing to winless (in the Big 10) Penn State?
What is Kansas' excuse for losing 3 games in a row?
What is Louisville's excuse for losing 3 games in a row?
Virtually all good teams have bad games a few times a year, usually on the road.
