I am really having a hard time with this. A lot of people have been using the turnovers excuse, saying basically "We really do have a good team. If it weren't for the turnovers, we would have won!"
I don't agree, because that argument has to go both ways. If you are going to subtract points from the other team and say we would have won if it weren't for whatever number of turnovers, then you should do the same the other way also. According to the box score, we had 3 turnovers, and they had 2. So if you subtract from each side accordingly, the score ends up being Neb. 14, ISU 3, and they still win.
