Evidence of Things Not Seen

Stats and numbers are weird sometimes. You can look for logic in them, you can look for trends to try and forecast future success or failure. There are people that do this for a living. I do not envy them.One thing you really can't gauge with any sort of confidence are specific game situations and their influence on statistics. Even just a single play can alter the flow or momentum...

Now what?

After a late Saturday night spent watching Michigan lose badly to Kansas State in the Buffalo Wild Wings bowl, fans are asking one simple question on Sunday morning: Now what? A win over the Wildcats wasn't even the important thing.
