They haven't earned shit. We have sucked that doesn't make everyone that beats us a powerhouse. Were we mocking them and pounding our chest when we came to the B1G and beat their ass? No, because we don't have little mans syndrome.We don't like to admit it but deep down we know, they have earned the right to brag, we have not of late.
So many are forced to go back in time to more glorious days of old and play the what if game which are meaningless.
Just win and you shut your opponent up. That is it.
