    Second half kickoff

    When we were kicking off after what I think was our first score of the second half (we had to kick off so many times I cant keep them all straight), PJ looked really upset about something. He was yelling at a ref and pointing right before he kicked like he thought Nebraska was lined up...

    Tai'yon Devers

    A lot of us were (rightfully) pretty hard on Devers after a real stupid play against Fresno ended up being a very costly penalty. I wanted to make sure everyone noticed something I saw during the Purdue game. We had a solid lead in the second half (don't remember exactly when this happened)...

    Quarterback Spike in GSU Game

    This ended up being moot, because the GSU called a timeout right before the play so it didnt technically happen. That said, from where I sat, it appeard that when we lined up deep in GSU territory on the winning drive and tried to spike the ball, that Tanner awkwardly turned such that he threw...

    2 Questions for Those Watching on TV

    What did TJ and Rodney do on the TD to get unsportsmanlike like conduct penalties? On the last drive, there was a no catch call on the sideline (I think it was CAB, but could be wrong). They reviewed, and the clip they showed at the stadium made it look like our receiver clearly had secured the...

    No diaper bags?

    Today is going to be BMG Jr's first in person gopher game. Went online to check if there were any special procedures we needed to comply with for the diaper bag. Turns out, diaper bags are explicitly prohibited. Is the athletic department consciously trying to keep families away from the...

    Gooher Tourney Chances

    If I'm following everything correctly, I think the gophers will be in unless Boston university, Duluth, and Princeton all win. We are sitting 13, there are two for sure "bid stealers" in Atlantic hockey and the wcha, and big ten and nchc both have two teams who are in anyway left. This means...

    Who to Cheer For

    Thought I would try to track games which are relevant to us getting into the NCAA tournament and winning the B1G: Big Ten: We want Wisconsin to beat PSU tonight. This would guaranty Penn State can't catch us, and help us catch PSU in the PWR (we are currently two behind them). We also want...

    Clock Management Question

    We were down 14 points, with three timeouts, 70 seconds left on the clock, and kicking off to start the second half. Does anyone think that Claeys believes running down the clock gave us the best chance to win, or was he already playing just to make the final score look close before we got to...

    Self-Inflicted Wounds

    These last three weeks we have played games and give ourselves a chance (to varying degrees) to win. The refs haven't given us any help. At the same time, we have made some really bad mistakes which have hurt us. It seemed like Kill's calling card the last couple of years was a moderately...

    Gopher's Playoff Tracker

    With the Gophers sitting currently on the wrong side of the bubble, I decided to start a tracker showing their current situation. I'm drawing my inspiration from some of Selection Sunday's threads over on the hoops board (though this is going to be far less detailed than most of his work, I'm...

    Puzzling Question

    Was a punt on fourth and 5, down by 10, with 4 minutes left, the decision most likely to win the game? If not, then what are we trying to do besides trying to win the game when playing for the axe and a divisional championship?

    Importance of Beating Wisconsin

    We have always known that Wisconsin is the most important game we play every year. No loss upsets me more than one to our hated rival, and no win would taste sweeter (at least that's what I assume, I don't have much first hand experience). However, with the divisional format, and Wisconsin...

    Free Throw Shooting

    It looks like we shot under 60% again last night against the D2 opponent (I didn't watch the game). Obviously, when we are winning games by double digit margins, it is a meaningless stat in the box score. However, if we lose a tight one because we barely hit half of our free throws, that's...

    Double Edged Sword

    Would you take our current situation if it were offered before the season started? By that, I mean we are in a position where we only have two games to play, and we can win the division and go to the title game by winning those two without needing any other help. However, at the same time, we...

    Big Ten Bowl Structure

    I am still struggling to understand this or find a definitive answer online. I know that we moved to some sort of tiered bowl structure where there are upper tier bowls, middle tier bowls, and lower tier bowls. However, I can't figure out what that means, how teams are split in tiers, or...

    Week 9 Who to Cheer for Thread

    I put something like this together last week, and since we are still in the midst of a title chase, I thought I would take another crack at summarizing the implications of the other Big 10 games. Since SS posed the question last week, my primary consideration is what impacts our shot at a...

    Week 8 Who to Cheer for Thread

    Thought with us have a strong start to the Big 10 season I would share my thoughts on what we should be hoping for in the other B1G games this coming weekend. This is not meant to be a super in-depth analysis, rather a quick guide for someone who might be seeing scores on Saturday but isn't...

    This Is The Time To Make Some Noise

    Gophers first four conference games are all against teams who finished with a worse B1G record than we did and with a collective 5-27 B1G record last year. After that, we play four games against teams with a collective 24-8 B1G record last year, all of whom finished with a better B1G record...

    Some Things Change, Some Things Stay the Same

    With one week to go until Gopher football, I wanted to share my thoughts on what I hope continues from last year and what I hope changes, and then solicit others to do the same. Here is what I came up with. Stay the Same 1. Win the ones we are in With the exception of the bowl game, I didn't...

    My dream

    Last night I dreamt that I went back to school, walked on for the Gophs, and because of hustle during fall camp, I was put on the return team for the opening kick. Berkley Edwards ran it back for six and then got freaked out when I gave him a much too enthusiastic hug. I also was on the...
