    Home Game/Neutral, I like Gophers to win...Gophers just aren't good enough to expect a win on the road, even vs struggling a Penn State team.

    Gophers defense is either feast or famine, they get a lot of big plays and give up a lot of big plays. If we can contain run gophers win...if not, could be shoot out as Lions defense is bad

    If Gophers want to be a factor in West, this one they need to win...

    Finally get to see what this team is all about. While it's not a must win, it kind of is IMO.

    Sadly it's what we're used too.

    Most gopher fans are aware we have low ceiling, but frustrating they can't even take advantage bad Penn state team

    While frustrated season isn't over

    I feel confident vs Purdue and Rutgers. Illinois should be winnable

    If we can get two from this group : northwestern, Iowa, Maryland, Nebraska, Wisconsin it'll be a decent year


    But need reduce penalties, long conversions, and big plays.

    I think 7 wins is likely, 8 possible, and 9 feasible but doubtful


    I had Penn in group 2 before season started

    Need some wins to get @kobesgame on the wagon

    I can't say I'm not on the wagon. I watch almost every game. I care about the outcomes. I don't watch really any other college football save for 1 or 2 NDSU games a year. But since I didn't grow up here and wasn't exposed to them from a young age, they make it really easy to not fully invest in them by pissing nearly every big opportunity down their leg. Which pisses me off because I'd love to be fully invested in a college football team. And I'm not interested in being fully invested in any other team.

    I know what you mean, they keep pissing chances down their legs, and attendance is dropping at the U and this wont help.
