    For all things gopher football related for 2017 season. Due to low activity, I'll just have one long thread

    @whiskey I predict between 6-6 and 9-3.....

    Actually I predict 7-5



    Vs Buffalo-W
    @ Oregon State-L
    Vs Middle Tn-W
    Vs Maryland-W
    @ Purdue-W
    vs Mi State-L
    Vs Illinois-W
    @ Ia-L
    @ Mi-L
    Vs Nebraska-W
    @ NW-L
    Vs Wis-W (THE STREAK IS OVER)



    My confidence in beating Wi actually isn't too high, but I think we'll end up with a trophy this year....actually I have us with 2 this year (the chair counts damnit)

    Oregon State-They're not that good, but we're breaking in a new QB on the road, so we're going to have a slip up or two along the way, and I think we'll get a surprise along the way

    I expect Demry Croft to be our starting QB

    Less than a week away. Gophers big favorites over Buffalo, if we lose to Buffalo, I'll be packing it in for the season. Will be curious to watch both QB's throughout game, I'm hoping they pick one as season goes on. My gut tells me Croft will eventually steal the job, but I doubt he'll be 3 year starter and will be pushed by incoming freshman next year or Tanner Morgan who will RS this year

    I'm not feeling optimistic coming into this season. I think Buffalo keeps it close into the 4th quarter, but we do enough to close the deal.

    Not an inspiring win. O-line will need to play better


    Defense was shaky first quarter but finished strong

    Talk about an ass kicking

    Andersen should be on hot seat


    The chainsaw sound effect beyond annoying

    Only 2 games in, but I think Rhoda should be starter for remainder of season. The read option isnt as effective, but...the continued evolution of passing attack should also help free up run

    Maryland and Purdue look greatly improved, confidence level is dropping

    NW looks awful, but they started slow last year too

    Illinois isn't good
    Nebraska-Poor Nebraska
    Iowa squeezed by Iowa State, but rivalry games are always different
    Wisconsin is clearly the best in the West, but I'd probably put them 3rd in the BIG at best, and possibly 4th. But when they should be in title game and who knows what can happen. They have a soft schedule so should be ranked top ten with impressive looking number of wins

    Rhoda named #1

    Croft named #2 .... but will not be with the team this week... :scratch:



    I guess we'll have to wait for Sid Hartman to break the story...

    Nice win. Offense still looks shaky. Hard evaluate defense when opponent missing starting QB and lost top two wrs during game, but they've pitched shutout second half again



    On downside I'm hearing demry croft and Rashad still are fans of marijuana and they'll be off team next year

    Neither played yesterday or dressed (croft was previously announced)
