NDSU football would beat the Gophers 8 of every 10 games. They are FCS.

Until they actually play each other, your just pulling that out of your ass. Much like LEN III.


I would love to see the Bison in the Big Ten and see the Gophers in game 8 of the year instead of the first game.

SDSU would be the same....those teams are all healthy on their 1st units aren't bad but wait until they have to go into their 2nd or 3rd RB and LBs after playing in the Big Ten 8-10 games a year.

The Gophers don't recruit Vance they try to get 3 QBs each year as good or better than Vance.


They have missed out on Wentz, Stick and Vance.

They need to try harder.


I know the reason they ended up with Annexstad....he is good enough, they didn' t have to give him a full ride, and he had connections to IMG Academy.....not sure what the deal is with Wentz, Stick, or Vance but Vance is their best QB and RB....better hope he doesn't get hurt running him that much....

Yep. He is taking on a lot of tacklers so far. Needs to be smarter and slide or get out of bounds.

Lance is one tough kid.
If anyone can handle that type of workload and abuse, he can.

His Dad was a star here at the college.
Fun seeing the success he's having.
At a legit football school.
The U coulda used him, but he's in a good place.

Some may roll their eyes at Fleck and his rah-rah demeanor, but underneath it all, he handles the game like a bonafide coach. He also assembled a staff that has their wits about them and have the freedom and knowledge to do things like this on Autman-Bell's TD:

During a timeout, Ciarrocca said the Gophers staff created a new play to try to draw double coverage for Rashod Bateman and Tyler Johnson, the U’s top two receivers. Bateman has led Minnesota with 17 targets this season; Johnson has 11 and Autman-Bell had four up to that point.

We kind of drew the play in the dirt,” Ciarrocca said. “We were trying to do whatever we could to make sure Chris had a one on one and (we were) thinking they were going to double Tyler and Rashod.”


Love the ability to adapt, improvise and execute in the clutch.


I also love hearing this from our starting QB and leader of the offense when talking about staying poised and finishing the crucial drive:

“We just have to go execute,” Morgan said. “… These are the moments you look for. You play college football to play in big-time moments.Why not us? Why not go and do that right now? You want to be in those big-time situations and come out on top. It was elite for us to see that.”

Morgan has delivered more in a little over half a year than Leidner did in his whole career.

No comments yet? Wow. I was coming here expecting to see voluminous posts of doom and gloom with us falling behind 7-0. Current score Gophers 21 GSU 13. Isn't GSU Jerrick McKinnon's alma mater?

The supposed TD for GSU should have been a touchback ball going to Gophers. I don't know the college replay system, but somebody screwed the pooch.

This coaching staff really makes some dumb ass decisions. Up by 8, under 2 minutes to go, ball on your own 30. 2 passes and 1 run and it's 4th and 1. They actually go for it, don't even get close and they smash it right down and score a TD right at the half.


Just dumb at that point and where the ball was. Just punt and make sure you go in by the 8 you already have.

Is it just my perception or do the Gophers tend to blow football games in the most idiotic of ways. A FG to put the game away becomes a blocked FG that almost ties the game? Do other teams do these kind of things as often as we do?

2 point lead. 3rd and 5. Perfect time to punt and have GSU march down the field to kick a FG as time expires. If we lose it will be the Gophers first loss to a sun belt team after 10 wins. As I type this fumble returned for a TD.

Fumble returned for TD. We're on the verge of losing this.

Why do we keep burning TO's? Fleck is unprepared.

The good news is now we are the team that can make the game winning drive.
