Re: 2012/13 Observation Deck
MSU needs to win road games against all of the teams outside of four. They can't really afford to have more than one home loss if any. 4-5 conference losses may win or tie for the regular season title. 6 isn't gonna do it. I don't think MSU has the ability to NOT lose enough road games against the top teams to win the title, but if they want to have a chance, they need to win games like tonight @ Iowa. A good team who might sneak into the tournament, but you gotta pile up your conference losses @ Indiana, @ Michigan, @ maybe Wisconsin and of course they've already lost @ Minny. Luckily they don't play @ Illinois this season. If they win tonight, the only kinda tough road game they play is @ Purdue outside of the really good teams. Those two are really big.
