    Post Game Thread - Gophers Crush Aggies

    Quick recap of my observations: Running game A-. I thought Mo and Potts both could have dinked instead of doinked a few times where a quick sidestep would have lead to more yards and/or touchdowns. Offensive line B+. Their dominance of the NM DL was due more to sheer strength than...

    Minnesota vs New Mexico State

    I see recent odds have Minnesota as about a 40 point favorite. I believe this is too much for the following reasons: Somewhat inexperienced offensive line. PJ normally does not run up the score. NMSU will have played a game against Nevada. Jerry Kill is a good coach and will make...

    Way-Too-Early 2020 Top 25 (Gophers at #13)

    I would be surprised at anything below 20th in AP Preseason Poll.. A look at the final top 15 this year will likely not show enough drop off to exclude them from the 2020 Preseason polls in the 1-20 range. But, that's OK. I would rather be overlooked by the writers than praised ad nauseam.
