I have been so curious about the quality of opponents they played in 1984 and the point differences. 1984 Season Michigan State (21-24) L Oregon (20-27) L Notre Dame (14-55) L UCLA (16-33) L Missouri (7-52) L Iowa State (23-21) W Nebraska (7-24) L Oklahoma State (14-20) L Kansas (27-28) L Oklahoma (17-42) L Kansas State (6-38) L 2012 Season CSU (17-22) L Sac St (28-30) L Fresno St (14-69) L WSU (35-34) W UCLA (14-42) L ASU (17-51) L USC (6-50) L Oregon (14-70) L Stanford (0-48) L By my count, the 1984 team had a total point differential in losses of 188 for all 11 games. No shutouts and numerous games were close. Don't know how good all those teams were that year, but those are some big name schools. Mac also pulled in a wicked recruiting class in 1984 giving hope that they were on the rise. JE's team in 2012 has a point differential in losses of 272 points through 9 games (not 11)! Recruiting class not looking so hot right now. No comparison. Nuff said.
